: It's always possible. Once we get through all the champions that received VU's we would re-evaluate the strategy and see if it makes sense to start working our way through the back catalog. So far the splash updates have been pretty well received so it could be likely. Trust me, I would love to see a amazing high quality splash whenever I lock in Blood Lord Vlad too!

Where do champions that received a visual update a long time ago (like Kayle and Janna) fall in as priorities for splash updates?
: Any plan for a new Janna skin?
Most champions have some type of skin in the works unless their model is in really rough shapes. As of right now there hasn't been any type of discussion by Riot on Janna being in need of a Visual Update. If she receives anything, it would probably be on the scale of Miss Fortune's or Sona's. I was half expecting a Janna skin for Valentines Day because in my head it made a lot of sense, so there must be something else in store coming at some point! Janna is my favorite champion, so I definitely hope we see something for her soon, whether it's a new skin or a visual update. :)
: @Riot Tryndamere gets another skin?!?
Sometimes champions will get new skins faster than others, but skins are made to the champions they feel it best applies. I'm sure we'll see something new and cool for Zyra and LB, and other champions that haven't see a skin in 1+ years, at some point!
: I Think League Needs a New Male Healer
I get the imbalance, but that never stopped the gender ratio of champions being fixed in League of Legends. I don't think gender is kept in mind in most cases, and this coming from someone who would like to see more Male support champions and more Female... everything else.
: Ultimate Skin for Lucian - Senna
This could easily be a legendary skin if no transforming was involved. Maybe just a Senna pre-Thresh sorta thing. I feel like it'd be a gender-swap almost, but I feel like Lucian's the only exception of this type of thing working.
: Princess Lulu.
There should be a whole "Princess" skin line.
: Here's a post where you can ask questions about the stuff I've worked on, and I'll try to answer.
Does the future mage update include support mages (Ex: Sona, Soraka, Janna), or is it exclusive to champions designated to middle lane?
iMaB3AST (NA)
: @Riot, Petition for Pulsefire Ezreal to get a Visual Update (New Character Model)
There's a lot of champions that need visual updates, Ezreal included. Everything will be upgraded eventually.
CatSith (NA)
: Lunar wraith Caitlyn looks like it should have been an Elise skin.
When I first saw the skin, I thought it was Elise, Eve, or Zyra. Everything about it resembles Elise, Eve, Zyra, or even Cass to me. It's not that it's a bad skin, it's a very nice one, it's just so vastly different from Caitlyn's concept that it's hard to identify it as her (at least for me, I'm sure others disagree).
Leu07 (NA)
: Goddess (Skin Line)
Your sketches are wonderful and I love the idea of uses Greek/Roman gods and goddesses as inspiration! I'd love to see all the Olympians- or even this type of skin on all of the champions! The only issue might be conflict with Smite, but I think it could be done right.
iBubbles (NA)
: But who gets the heartseeker skin this year?
Who I'd want: {{champion:40}} {{champion:78}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:84}} Who will most likely get one: {{champion:29}} {{champion:203}} {{champion:201}}{{champion:32}} Most likely I see Heartseeker Kindred, Sweetheart Amumu, and a new Debonair skin that could probably be on any champion.
: Pre Corruption Morgana
A Pre-Corruption Morgana would be really neat, especially with a new VO to match! Probably after Morgana receives a VU though, because her model right now would not be able to do this idea any justice.
: Rosehaze Janna Idea
Janna is probably one of the champions best suited for a Valentines Day skin. I don't think she qualifies to be a Heartseeker (ADC only?), but I don't see why Sweetheart Janna couldn't be a thing! I've seen this concept before and love it, I hope we can get something similar. I love the pink spells especially. Her last non-legacy skin was Forecast, which was two years ago... We need more love for Janna! :)
: Elderwood Janna
An Elderwood Janna would be a great skin that could fit really well thematically. I main Janna too and have been waiting for a skin that portrays Janna in this type of manner. Lots of green and maybe subtle pink accents would lend well!
: The only issue if any with Janna is her visuals, which even then aren't terrible since she's gotten an VU a while back and then texture+color updates a little more recently. Her model is a little dated and could used adjustments since she falls under that category of models so old they're tiny *coughKayleandMorgcough*. Otherwise nothing is really wrong with her. Her game play is pretty smooth once you get the hang of her + she's fun to make enemies salty with for your mad peeling skills :^)

Her game play is pretty smooth once you get the hang of her + she's fun to make enemies salty with for your mad peeling skills :^) I have very similar feelings. Her model needs some adjustments, but otherwise she's in a pretty decent spot compared to other champions. Janna's hair could definitely be improved upon when looking at how Riot has handled flowing in other champions' models (why does her hair stick straight up instead of slowing behind her?) Her gameplay isn't in a bad spot at all in comparison to other champions as well.
: Release Starguardian Lux Chroma please
I think it may be harder to include chroma's for a skin like Star Guardian Lux because of the heavy particle changes and likelihood of clashing with a recolored design. I'm all for it if they can find a way to make it work.
: Heartseeker Vayne vs. SKT T1 Vayne
SKT T1 Vayne. I don't think Heartseeker Vayne looks that great compared to the other Heartseeker skins.
darkdill (NA)
: With the Japanese servers coming up soon, post up your ideas for Japanese-related skins
: Holy/ Saint skin line?
Arclight series comes to mine. Also Celestial Soraka, but that's not a series as of now. There isn't really a straight-up Angel series though.
Skelenth (EUW)
: Another champion in a similar spot would be Udyr, or... yeah Urgot too

: More colorful/cute skins?
Popstar Ahri, Star Guardian Lux, Bittersweet Lulu, River Spirit Nami, and the Order of the Lotus line are some of my favorite skins. Pink is my favorite color, and I love seeing cutesy/colorful/girly skins. I'd love to see some skins like these for Janna or Soraka, but really I'd love it for all the champions. I think it'd help encourage me to play champions who originally wouldn't necessarily appeal to me. :)
: Janna isn't the only champion whose weapon moves while dancing. And for 4 those icons seem to be a work-in-progress due to how Sona's icons have changed in lighting from that were implemented to todays.

And for 4 those icons seem to be a work-in-progress due to how Sona's icons have changed in lighting from that were implemented to todays. I didn't know Sona had icons implemented prior to her VU/MTU, just that Janna and Anivia had some patched in at some point. They look nice, so hopefully we at least see those added in, enhanced or not.

Darkrown (EUNE)
: [Skin Concept] Aristocrat Fiora
Really neat concept. I think some lace could really enhance the Aristocrat-vibe. I also agree that the platinum hair suits her more than the blue, it may look good with brown eyes or maybe a very light ice blue. I also think some sort of hat would add something. Vayne have a feather/hat, so maybe some sort of little hat? Something is definitely needed to make it more cohesive with Vayne's Aristocrat skin, but I'm not sure what. Just throwing some ideas. I really like the idea though, I could definitely see something like this being done as a 750 RP skin! You're also a very talented artist.
Blainezy (NA)
: Harrowing Skin speculation!!
I'm guessing Cassiopeia will get one, she seems like a good candidate for a Harrowing Skin. Otherwise, I feel like really any champion who hasn't received one already has a pretty good shot.
: A Bad Angel Gone Good: Guardian Angel/Legendary Archlight Morgana
I love Morgana as a champion and would love to see an angelic version of her! Exiled Morgana doesn't really count... I think something turning her into the light guardian angel archetype would work really well for her seeing how she is often used as a support. I also think it'd be nice to see more "bad guy gone good" skins, we only usually get the opposite! I'd love to draft a concept for this idea.
: Will Sona be mute if/when her rework comes?
Sona got a visual update and rework already, it'd be weird if they didn't do any changes like you mentioned paired with those things. I think Riot usually tries to do stuff like that all together.
Knalxz (NA)
: With the new lore can we get some likable villains?
{{champion:222}} Jinx is a pretty harmless villain, if she counts. She's destructive and chaotic, but she never really has any bad intentions. {{champion:25}} Morgana can be seen as a villain, she fell from grace and turned to dark magic to regain power. She doesn't get along with her sister, but otherwise she's a pretty nice person. She runs her own bakery outside of the league, that's pretty innocent in itself. I guess it just sort of depends on what someone considers a villain.
: More female characters please? Also non-humanoid stuff. (suggestions included)
I'd love to see more female champions. You listed a few of them, but there's still a lot of uncharted trope territory that can fit a potential female champion well. I trust Riot's judgement on incorporating interesting female champions. If I remember correctly, Braum was originally a female mechanic-esque character. Sometimes it can be found concepts and kits work better with another champion design. I'd take a few interesting female champions that are unique and well-tailored over a handful of generic concepts thrown out just to satisfy the gender imbalance of League's roster. Regardless, I really would like to see a harpy at some point, though.
salvaro (NA)
: The little mage in the Prehistoric splashart
I wouldn't be shocked if they returned to the concept and added new ideas to it that would work now.
: Whenever I see someone make a Topic about Project: Fiora hair.
I like the white hair. I can appreciate the Raiden reference, but on Fiora it looks way to much like Eve (especially the hair style, pale blue skin, and pink accents all together).

: >skin_syndra_halloween_by_cmorilla-d7mb7r3.jpg I'd have never guessed. Thank you, Watson.
I was just letting you and the OP know.
Whiller (NA)
: evelynn re-design and skins
The second skin is a Syndra concept.
: Petition To Have An Old Lady Champion
I'm all for adding an older female champion to the roster. That is, as long as it's done in a way that makes sense with her character.
: can we have a champion that uses whip
Morgana was supposed to have a whip, it'd be nice to see that incorporated into a VU.
: What we need is some sonic themed skins
Miss Fortune would obviously be Rouge the Bat, not Amy Rose.
: New Taric Skin
Taric isn't going to get a new skin until after his visual update is taken care of because his model is so old and out-dated. I think a pool party skin would be neat on Taric though!
: Why aren't there more black champions?
I think Riot has addressed the lack of diversity in their designs in the past and are working towards fixing that. A lot of the older female champions were designed all to look "sexy" and Riot has since moved away from that and started to create more diverse female champions. I think Ekko is a good example of Riot acknowledging that not only had they overlooked female champions, but that the majority of humans are white. Race does very little to detract from a character besides altering their appearance. Ekko COULD have been white, but he was not designed to be. There are only 5 (including Thresh, but that's still stretching it because he's no longer human) Black and 8 Asian champions. 13 champions of color (this does not include humanoids with skin tones not present in real life) is pretty dismal. I don't think anything was consciously racist, but I'd definitely like to see more diversity in the future!
Paelf (NA)
: Sincere Request for Ahri's Model
I don't mind Ahri getting a model update in the future, as long as it's on a similar scale to Miss Fortune or Sona. She's not in the worst shape, but definitely would benefit from some changes. She's a low risk high reward champion to update in my opinion, considering she doesn't need any thematic overhauls like other champions have gotten, just some polishing up to bring her to the current standard. However, there are a lot of champions who fall into the same boat as Ahri, so I'm pretty sure she won't be prioritized unless she has gameplay changes involved.
Elfezen (NA)
: Cant we get a female Wukong in League of Legends for a change?
I don't think it'd make sense to change WuKong's gender. Also, even if this ever happened, it'd make a lot more sense to have her be a monkey and not a swimsuit model in a monkey costume.
Dr Poro (EUW)
: I don't want her to get a visual update. She's fine as she is now. Will a new splash art, she will be in an unnatural pose facing the camera with a really awkward expression on her face and having her whole body covered.
> [{quoted}](name=Dr Poro,realm=EUW,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=pg0lJfpq,comment-id=0006,timestamp=2015-07-17T23:05:27.563+0000) > > I don't want her to get a visual update. She's fine as she is now. Will a new splash art, she will be in an unnatural pose facing the camera with a really awkward expression on her face and having her whole body covered. I don't really think Janna is a champion that requires any sort of visual overhaul, the current design depicted in her splash art. I don't think her outfit would be significantly changed, if at all. It's specifically just her in-game model that's in a rough place.
Marcia (NA)
: Janna Visual Update
Bumping this, I'd really like to get input from a red poster on her condition! :)
: I'd rather Mordekaiser, Taric, Urgot, Cho'gath, Evelynn, Anivia, Warwick, Poppy, Shaco and a few others I can't name off the top of my head get serious updates before Janna does. Cause they all look awful. Like, terribly awful

MTU's only apply to champions who need small changes. Comparing Janna to someone like Eve or Warwick, it's clear who needs a VU. But looking at the recent changes to GP, MF, Cass and more, small easy changes could prove high rewards in regards to Janna's visuals.
Neamean (NA)

Maybe a bit more extensive due to issues with her model, but I think new VFX and spell icons would be something she'd greatly benefit from!
Rioter Comments
: Many (Classy) Janna Skins; (Janna has poor skin selection at the moment, please consider!)
I main Janna and I've always felt like she was a good fit for a Valentines Day skin. Janna has a reasonable amount of skins, but there isn't as great of a variety/differentiation as other champions. They're all very blue, so it'd be nice to see something red/pink.
: Kayle & Morgana halloween costume idea
I like the concept, but as stated it creates too many issues with clarity during games. I think the best way this could be done is by doing something like Demonic Kayle and Angelic Morgana. Give Kayle a darker/evil appearance and then give Morgana a lighter/good appearance. I know Exiled Morgana is sort of a pre-fallen Morgana, but the idea could be explored enough to be different. At least a Black/Purple recolor for Kayle could probably exist.
: The Star Guardians
This is awesome. Except for the fact that it means Lux is the support. She's viable, but definitely not optimal. The need for a tank in this skin-line makes me think of throwing in Leona.
: Janna, the once and future queen of winrate, is pretty close if you ask me. Maybe riot could do a genie skin with a winged lamp floating around her.

: The League Should Have a Genie Themed Support Champion
I'm surprised it hasn't happened already. Or at least a genie skin for a champion.
