: Future Stories
I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to see another story featuring all of the Frejlord demigods... ...but also a Nautilus, Shaco, or a Kha'Zix/Rengar story would be nice. Ooooooooo actually now that I think about it, another Kha'Zix/Rengar story with a sort of "The Most Dangerous Game" vibe would be really cool. I want to see those hunters tango.
: I found FIDDLESTICKS suitable instrument for his Login Theme Song
I remember when I first heard this monstrous beauty...its a really nice fit!
: I really like it but I am noticing that the overwhelming majority of people dislike it and I am not sure why. I think it looks quiet neat and the abilities seem sharp.

I think it looks quiet neat and the abilities seem sharp. I agree with your statement about the ability effects, I think those are done really well. My issue with the outfit isn't as much that its primarily cloth (though armor would fit better, especially with Aatrox), but the clothing he's wearing lacks function and/or color unity. Its very possible that if they didn't divide up the colors as much as they did, that it would look a lot cleaner. I also don't think the white for his sword/arm match the Victorious theme very well, or do the skin very much justice. They're very striking (and in a way, elegant) but they don't blend well with the rest, and in fact distract from the sum. These are just my thoughts though. I don't mean any harm <3
: Victorious Aatrox Design Poll
I believe Riot has made an error in terms of the current design. Traditionally, Victorious skins have been a bit more armored, and many have argued (and I agree) that in its current state, it looks very similar to Justicar Aatrox. Right now it looks like he made a sword out of Galio, and let Jhin/Shaco dress him. Joking aside, I believe the colors/textures used, and how they're being used, are wrong, although I remain optimistic about this being able to be improved. I would recommend maybe shifting his skin tone to a more natural hue, shift the model towards a more armored look like we've seen with other skins, but shift the color balance to the blue undertones, silver armor with gold accents, with some wiggle room in terms of other accenting colors (such as purple or something for cloth accents). Aatrox has always had kind of a warlord vibe, I think that can be played upon a bit more while maintaining champion clarity.
: The New Fiddlesticks Design
I haven't seen it brought up yet, but I'd love to see the current direction mixed with a traditional take on Fiddlesticks, like the one done by Shawn Brack (?) awhile back: https://cdn0.artstation.com/p/assets/images/images/000/666/100/large/shawn-brack-gmfiddlesticks.jpg?1443930318 Though I don't agree with every choice, I like the head they used in terms of that rounded shape, and the extension of the cloth garb, as well as the gloves! I feel like a mixture between these two directions could be really interesting. Definitely a big fan of the bird cage chest though. The thought of demon birds tearing their way out of his chest for his ultimate....mmmmmmmmm... I would certainly be surprised if Fiddlesticks had nothing to do with Beatrice, the Demon Raven. I think its a good tie in honestly for what is slowly becoming a more interesting background character since Swain's rework.
: 1) No, more serious. Although there's something inherently goofy about his kit and that is still there. 2) No, but they are scarier.

Although there's something inherently goofy about his kit and that is still there. > 2) No, but they are scarier. I've been out of the game for awhile (apologies) but I do think the direction with Fiddlesticks is an interesting one! Fiddlesticks used to be a favored champion by my friend and I back in middle school. We would occasionally do his exaggerated, marionette walk to and from classes and after school activities. I do rather like the semi-broken, dragging the razor sharp death-claws behind him (very reminiscent of some iconic horror icons), but does this mean that he/they will no longer have the signature fiddle-walk? Also for slightly more commentary on the concept art: I do actually like the direction, though I miss some of the form to his head way back around the time of his 2nd splash art. I may be alone, but I also don't think you guys should do away with his gloves entirely, they were pretty iconic to the Fiddlesticks look. Along that same line of thought, I feel like he's a little bare now, and could use some more cloth to add a bit more figure and contrast to his otherwise skeletal frame. Since I've been gone as long as I have though, I want to give a HUGE congratulations to you and the rest of the team, Kindle. I haven't been playing much these years, but I've always tried to keep up with the direction of the game (whether it be mechanics, art, or lore) and the various teams of Riot Games have done an amazing job. The Universe/Lore expansion has especially given me so much I can continue to become enamored of, even without the means to play the game these days ^_^
: #Give Swain a Haircut
Riot said they wanted to keep that Warlock theme rather than the simple Military regulation look, but I think a compromise could be reached. https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-0AyE91XSNq4/Wmt6Q8sJ-RI/AAAAAAAA32o/xu3QjMtOFEArv-bSyZ6m8wvA-_izVsZSACLcBGAs/s1600/LOL_CMS_180_Article_04_dnhdbq7gvjdqnyha648v.png In this shot (probably mainly because of the simplistic coloring) Swain's hair feels a lot shorter, and I think the solution lies in this. Maybe hair that has the same receding hairline Swain currently has, but the overall length of the back could be about neck length rather than draping over his shoulders. In addition, I'm hoping they touch up the coloring of his hair to be more of a salt-and-pepper look, and maybe reflect his age a little more in his face than by his Gandalf/Lucius Malfoy locks.

: A More Darkin-Colored Varus
I want to thank everyone thus far for their input. I have a few words I'd like to say, since I think I wasn't as clear as I could have been. I too like purple Varus more, my main concerns being that a) the shade of purple makes him seem more like a void character, and b) the only other Darkin we've seen have had more reddened tones (a nice blood red for Aatrox, a red-orange mix for Rhaast). I do believe more could be done to help Aatrox fit in among his long prospected brethren, but I certainly agree my initial color alterations were on the extreme side. This is my latest version, also featured above, but I think it does well to balance the two colors. If I was a better artist perhaps I could have gotten it *just right,* however, this is the best of my abilities (for now). https://imgur.com/5iTszoi Again, thanks to everyone who has participated, and I hope for the conversation to continue!

Not convinced any of the yordles died, after all, most of them were rocking out with Pentakill, despite the destruction. (Gotta love all those examples of yordle anatomy though)

: Is this a teaser for new battlecast skins?
Battlecast Warwick. Kinda looks like the pillar on his back. Edit: oh you meant the blurb. Shyvanna seems most likely, Noc is a bit fluidy, and Eternium is a bit too close, at least color wise.
: Well Shyvanna's new lore is heavly dependant on J4 and rightfully so, he is the reason she is in Demacia, likewise Kayn was taken in by Zed and made an acolyte in his order, to summarize his character I would describe him as: Zed's shadow assassin apprentice that wields a Darkin scythe. I know the whole Zed's apprentice was something a lot of people wanted and it was almost always shutdown, because this is league of legends, not league of legends and their friends, but by adding the darkin aspect to his character he is shaping up to be a major factor in the fate of Ruenterra with regard to the darkins. Just my two cents on him.

Just my two cents on him. Fair points, but I just feel they're loading too much into his character. Noxian born suicide soldier, shadow apprentice, and darkin wielder. I think that he could be two of these things, but not all three, so it's a matter of choosing which of these are most important. Personally, I like suicide soldier and darkin host more so. A shadow assassin could still be done, and shadow assassin darkin wielder COULD work, but to me it feels a little less natural of a character.

I'm in love 😍 He feels kinda Borderlands-y (in a good way!), and also reminds me a little of the PROJECT skins as well, but truly, TRULY, beautiful work.

: Rhaast confirms Varus is a darkin
I'm on the fence about Varus either being Conquest or Pestilence. A bowman makes me think of siege and such, but one of his abilities make me lean towards pestilence, and that is "blighted quiver." Granted, this is nothing to trust your eggs with, but blight refers most often to disease, specifically of plants. I do like conquest in a sort, but all this theorizing makes me anxious to see what Riot will do.

: [Skin Concept] Spiritweaver Taliyah
A very interesting skin! Since Taliyah is such a physical champion, with all the stone what not, something as loosey goosey as spirit energy is interesting for her, but it works! it could probably be made either more Shadow Isles, or perhaps more zen, Ionia-y (considering she spent some time there). Overall, really cool! Edit: This gave me like 3 or 4 other skin ideas * Elderwood Taliyah * Blood Moon Taliyah * Dragon Breeder Taliyah (shoots dragons, dragon egg mine fields, big dragon launches her, and serpentine dragons for her wall ahhhhh!) Sorry, all these rolled through my head when looking at your art.
: Wow, those sculpts are really good. Great work! One problem is that I think he has too many aura-type abilities and his abilities are visually jarring. The entire time I was reading I was imagining this sort of armored Void humanoid but instead it was this little creature.

The entire time I was reading I was imagining this sort of armored Void humanoid but instead it was this **little creature**. Thank you! It was awhile ago, but I worked rather extensively on them at the time. I'm not the best at it by any means, but stubborn enough to get something that'd work ^_^ I'm not sure I share your concern on his abilities. Perhaps some further explanation would help me see what you mean. In the lore I wrote, he's referred to as a "colossal beast", and is intended to be the size of a large whale, not really little xD Though a void armored humanoid sounds cool, I wanted an aquatic adaptation, and whales and turtles are cool (literally that's where this idea started: Whales, and Turtles).
: Annie shouldn't be holding Tibbers when Tibbers is active
You're definitely right. The cinematic shows Annie releasing the tibbers doll when summoning that dreadful demon bear, and it shouldn't be present in her hands while her ultimate is active. Spot on! I think it'd be cool if they touched up her ult a bit and make it so mechanically she throws the doll and Tibbers lands. It'd probably be reflected in visual more than anything else, but it'd probably also take slightly more time depending on how far she cast's him? I don't know, just rambling, but yeah, I agree ^_^

Also, I'd like to learn more about these competitions you mentioned. Glad to impress! As for the competitions I mentioned... The MCCC was the Monthly Champion Creation Contest. I'm not sure if it still goes on (I've been gone awhile), but they had criteria judging concepts, and had some story/plot elements. The CCOS was (and still is?) the Champion Concept Open Stage, which was rather similar to the MCCC, but didn't focus as heavily on a story, and often had the bonus criteria of providing feedback to your competitors. I think this one still goes on under different management, and usually pops up around the end of every month? I hope I've been helpful!

: BatGalio Skin Concept
Super Galio would also be pretty great I think. Slicked back hair, chiseled features...
: The Archetype We're Missing.
Lucian talks about his wife We have the Demacian siblings (Garen and Lux) We have the Noxian siblings (Darius and Draven) Varus talks about losing his family a bit I think And while I can see where you're coming from with more want for blood relations, the relationships like Vi and Caitlyn, Graves and TF, Ekko and his crew of orphans, etc. are pretty cool too! Though you are right with a lot of the bigger names not having like established families of their own, which would be interesting to see, but they also wouldn't be so much "legends" as they would be "really cool people."

His passive, for instance, could use the actual phenomenon of the Lighting Ball. And his Q would have to get more violent looking the larger it was. I definitely agree with the comment on his Q, however, my concern is that with the lightning ball thing, his passive could have some clarity issues that conflict with Kennen.

Each of them go through their model transformations differently. * PF Ezreal's model changes as you rank up his ultimate. Said change is permanent. * SG Udyr's model (or maybe just texture?) changes as he changes stances, and levels up his abilities to their maximum ranking. Transformation is semi-permanent, as he can shift between the models. * DJ Sona is able to change on command between the different models/styles. Non-permanent. So a Seasonal Zyra would need potentially need to shift models differently than these previous skins. The most common one I've seen a time-sensitive change, which I honestly love. It'd make sense to me if Seasonal/Mother-Nature Zyra "changed seasons" about every five minutes, though something like what was done with DJ Sona appeals more in my opinion. A combination of time changing and choice might be a happy medium, but could also get on someone's nerves if they prefer a season and have to keep changing. I'm not positive on autumn and winter flowers, but for Summer and Spring should be sunflowers and either Rose/Poppy flowers. That's all I have to contribute thus far, but I'm going to think on it more.
