: At first, I thought you traced over the original art. But after comparing your drawings with the originals, I think you "eyeballed" the art and then tried to imitate it? Eyeballing is a good way to start trying to draw, and you do have the right idea going on. Nothing looks really out-of-place although some parts can be proportionately better. I miiiiight sound a bit like a black sheep compared to the earlier comments, but I say trying to precisely imitate the original splash art is a-okay at your stage. Learning anatomy and how to shade and developing your personal style are excellent topics for anyone, of course, but so is learning how to measure your subject with your eyes. Measure the width of your subject's arm compared to their head, identify how dark the shading is in their hair compared to their skin, etc. Some artists produce drawings that look exactly identical to photographs and that's fine so long as they give credit where credit's due. They learn about their subject in great depth. Measuring the original art will offer you insight about how it's composed. That's just my two cents though. You can definitely just follow what the others were saying earlier about learning anatomy and trying new poses and such. Anatomy's always a good place to begin. Hope you can learn a bit from this thread, Malek. {{sticker:sg-soraka}}
You have a really good point there and what you're saying is really good, if you don't mind me giving my thoughts and adding to what I already commented because you reminded me. Reference is always really great (What you're kind of getting at I think?) and I'm not world class artist (Trust me, its a dumpster fire lmao) but it definitely helps most of the time, but when I'm drawing and I like It will usually influence what I draw next, and I used to look back at those drawings while drawing, but no longer do. I found that it made me more inclined to pretty much copy it and after time made it hard for me to be more creative which I'm slowly fixing. So while references are good to look at to study anatomy and such as you said, I just suggest trying to stray from it and not look at the reference as much as you look at examples of anatomy sketches for those are a lot easier to look at and not copy always I've found. That's just my experience though, take it with a grain of salt, hope what I said helped and made sense.

Other wise they just seem traced :> Agreed. You should learn anatomy 'n stuff and then develop your own style, or if you don't want to get too far with drawing just draw but not the exact pose as in the picture. It's okay to have references, but don't draw the exact poses as on the splashart. Btw use stockman figures to make posing easier first, then draw the character around it.
Yeah, thanks for explaining what I was trying to say better for me lmao. Also maybe try studying some ways to draw hair, shadowing, etc if you really want to progress, and keep practicing. Here's one of my favorite artists on Youtube that does some really good tutorial just as an example, she has a few more that may be helpful if you want to see some tutorials. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66oIUOHtd2E&list=PL__dZMS47dM1KWMDhvFjS1ZBExy2NwW
: When will the new lux skin come out?
Probably soon, likely end of January, start of February hopefully. Also it should be around the Chinese New Year if I'm not mistaken.
: why people want skins for a champs that have so many already... -.- give some skins to the one that only have 1 or 2 skins {{champion:136}}!!, {{champion:163}}!!, {{champion:427}}, {{champion:141}} and of corse {{champion:516}}, {{champion:142}} but they are still new
Don't forget characters like Kindred and Kalista... :>

They're pretty good, but you should try incorporating your own style or something unique into them... Other wise they just seem traced :>
Xayah º (NA)
: [CONCEPT ART] Arctic Ops Xayah
Both look amazing, I feel like the second matches the theme better though. Honestly, can't really complain about either though.
Rakan º (NA)
: Arctic Ops Xayah and Rakan
These are amazing, and I saw what you said about the Rakan being shirtless issue, but I mean even if he was as I said below... I'm not sure he'd exactly care?
: i like xayah's but i think rakan's doesnt fit the thematic i mean he the arctic without a hat or a shirt sexy but it doesn't work
But it's Rakan... I'm not sure Rakan would really care to much or think ahead for that... {{sticker:sg-lulu}}
: Kindred adc or a new adc?
I think Kindred is fine how they are at the moment. I see no need for a rework and if you really want to you can easily play her as adc, I've done it quite a bit actually and absolutely demolished lane a few times with them. Also, you can quite literally play them in any lane, I've seen mid, I've seen top, I've of course seen jg, I've done adc, and with her e and r you could do support if you really want to.
: that's what we call a "support"
Lmao, so true. I've been exposed.
Notion Z (NA)
: New Team LP gain/lose idea
This sounds like a really good idea but it'd be hard to work around the support players, as they likely would always be considered carried or hard carried if they don't get a bunch of kills, which they usually don't. And also this could cause more reason to ks so that you get more lp instead of trying to give your teammates kills if your ahead to help them. I don't know, that's just my thoughts on the matter, though it's a really good idea to be honest.

No problem, thanks
: Hi..

: ELDERWOOD LEONA!!!! OMGWTFBBQ!!!!! I want!
: Popstar leona huh? Sounds familiar like it already exists https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RynGq8FDP-w Piltover Leona/Diana sounds cool. I wonder why Riot doesn't mess with skins from their own universe as much. It'd be a good way to flush out the universes, but it'd probably take coordination with their lore team, which is probably why it's not done.
Lol nice And yeah probably, idk. But they should still do it either way haha
Monticap (EUW)
: I would like to see a List of Yorick Skins cause its one of my favourite Champs, but i'm not a good artist. Maybe you can do that so it also will get more attention. I also had some Ideas. Maybe a Scrooge Yorick (He is Scrooge and his Minions could be little snowmans, his ult could be the Ghost who haunts Scrooge), Kahuna Yorick (He is a Hawaian dude and his minions have little Tiki masks and would attack with little spears) Halloween Yorick(His Minions could be little Zombies or little creatures with Pumpkins on their Heads), St. Patricks Day Yorick( He could be a big leprechaun and his minions just little goblins, his Ult could be a big Turkey (would be really funny)) and maybe you got some more ideas. Hope you'll do it, would be really nice. ^^ Thank you.
Sorry so late on replying, those are really good ideas and I'm not a good artist either but I can try and find some, it'll likely not make it to the twenty though
: That's one of her actual skins (-_-). It's a legacy skin called Defender Leona
Lmao oops I'm tired, when I was searching for some reason it was marked under concepts still.
Rioter Comments
: angelic leona looks more like a kayle skin and I think her sword in the popstar one should be a guitar or a keyboard or maybe make her wear like a skirt or somehting.
Yeah maybe, I think they look really good as is. And yeah, that's what I thought to but couldn't resist posting it anyways.
: I have tried looking for a lot of skin concepts for Karma and I can only find a few. I think the Developers really need some inspiration and I would love to see the possibilities. Secretly still hoping for Popstar Leona though.
Love Karma, she's an awesome champion, she'll probably win the polls soon, but seems Sona won out which I'm definitely not sad about, may or may not main her lol. And yeah most definitely, I want a Popstar skin for everyone tbh :>
: Love the dawn break and officer ones.
FeeNeeX (EUNE)
: Do Diana :)
I'll put her in the next poll haha :D
: Thank you very much for making these skin concept compilations. Its really great to see a bunch of concepts on one champion so beautifully drawn all in one place. I think my favorite concept for Leona is anything that involves Diana. Kind of like how they did the dawn-bringer Riven vs. night-bringer Yasuo
Yeah those usually do look really amazing, and yeah thank god for the amazing talented artists so I can compile some of them. It's fun to be able to see a bunch in one place I think.
: I love the winged Leona, even though it's not different, s'just awesome. I have a soft spot for Shadow Isles Leona too, she'd look so spanking in big black armor. Thanks for sharing these.
She really would, and no problem it's fun too haha. And yeah same, winged Leona looks so amazing.

Yeah, I mean I can try and find some... I don't make them as seen in the different art styles and the disclaimer at the top but I know what you mean haha. Though Eclipse Leona and Dawn Break Leona kind of have the mask/helmet thing but yeah I know what you mean I think.
Azteryz (NA)
: YESSS MORE CLOSED HELMET SKINS PLEASE its a surprise that so many of our warrior champs dont have closed helmet skins {{champion:122}} {{champion:86}} {{champion:59}} {{champion:89}} {{champion:44}} {{champion:5}}
Yeah it kinda is weird we don't have more...

Same if I wasn't broke

I don't know what that is, but I do agree that it looks amazing.
Sukishoo (NA)
: There have been some really cool concepts out there for her. I'm really hoping we maybe see some of them this year :D
Yeah as am I, I'm more of a squishy support player but she's probably my favorite tank support to play!

Don't we all {{sticker:sg-jinx}}

Same! {{sticker:sg-jinx}}
: I am in love with all of these skin concepts. Ashenlady works with her very well, Dragon Queen looks nice, the two Empress skins are pretty interesting since we don't see anymore aquatic or fairy related skins being made. Ascended Shyvana is beautiful (loving the colors and the armor for both dragon and human forms). Dragon Fist Shyvana is a must (seriously. The concept itself is incredibly obvious. Not sure why it was never made) and I like the Necromancer one. If it was ever made, it'd probably be best to call it Dracolich Shyvana since that's what an Undead Dragon is
Oh wow yeah, thanks for teaching me something new haha (The Dracolich thing). And agreed, the skin concepts you can find for her are really gorgeous.
Alex Luu (NA)
: I don't think any of those skins will make it into the game except for mayb dragon fist/jade shyvana...except they'd be renamed to warring kingdom or something along that line. The dragon gauntlets on her hands in dragon fist shyvana is a bit strange though, too animesque as well and would have to tone down the sideboob or totally remove it. Edit: would probably be a solo skin and be named something like "Eastern Dragon Shyvana"
Lol yeah, and I'm not expecting any of these to put in. It's just one's I _wish_ would be put in.
: u good in top? Kindred top usually works 10x better
SatomiKun (EUW)
: I like the first version of the Pillowfight skin, but how the hell would a pillowfight dragon look like? {{sticker:sg-lux-2}} And Hextech skins are always awesome, but the name should be changed. Hextech has a different look now, blue and gold with crystals. Maybe make even a Chemtech skin? And is there a specific reason why you just do female champs in your poll?
Pillow Fight dragon.... that's something I'd love to see lmao, pillows strapped to it as armor maybe lmao? . Yeah it does, chemtech? And no lol, It's just champions that I play. And for some reason the champions I play are female? Idk honestly haha, But Kindred is a they! But yeah idk, I just like their kits better, plus I'm a supp main, and a lot of supps or female. Though I do play Rakan and am trying to get Kench or Varus soon
: I'm sad to see Lux isn't on the list. I've looked, but haven't found much. Tbh i can't think of many more possibilities for her side from going down other skin lines, like arcade, project, etc. ######inb4 downvotes because she has a lot of skins but you'd be asking for more too even if your main had a ton
Yep haha. I'll make sure to put her on the next list to get voted for. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
