Swampert (EUW)
: New Shyvana skin not feeling finished
Shyv is a champ that generally doesn't have particles as flashy as Kindred or Fizz, so we definitely worked with what we got to make things feel cool for her - especially her dragon form!
: @Riot Is Elderwood Leblanc at all inspired by Midsummer Night's Dream?
Hello! Elderwood LB most definitely references A Midsummer Night's Dream - more specifically, Titania! The amazing concept artist, Kindlejack, created her :) She is also based a bit on the more tricky European fairies, rather than the more benevolent ones!
: How do you maintain your cool yet charming demeanor while being approachable and great to work with? Which characters did you reference for Arcade Blitzcrank?
Can confirm, he's very cool yet charming guy! {{champion:117}}

Hey hang in there, dude. Life can sure get rough sometimes.
Sid88 (NA)
: A Song inspired by and dedicated to Ekko.
Very cool :) Going to forward this to some of the champ bros working on him right now!
: this whole star guardian thing feels to me like the second coming of arcade skins. and i want moar.
And there's room to create those dastardly villains the Star Guardians are fighting against! {{item:1026}}
patmax17 (EUW)
: That's actually what i like most of sailor-moon related skin concepts: what LoL character do people put into which senshi's role? I'd go like this (i'm going for some unusual picks :D): Moon - Sona Mercury - Orianna Mars - Irelia Jupiter - Leona Venus - Jinx Uranus - Vi Neptune - Soraka Saturn - Diana Pluto - Karma Chibimoon - Annie Starlight - Katarina
If that's the case....Annie = Sona's daughter! Mystery solved! >:3
darkdill (NA)
: Star Guardian Lux - The Anime!
This all all just my headcannon...here I go! haha Star Gaurdian Lux, the main magical girl! She had to find a team of other magical girls to bring the light of the stars back into the world! {{champion:99}} ----------------------------------------- Along the way she slowly builds her confidence at school and makes friends with the soon-to-be new star guardians! {{champion:89}} {{champion:40}} {{champion:103}} {{champion:267}} ----------------------------------------- Their evil enemies are trying to plunge the world into emptiness and darkness. They say the sky is empty, the stars' light isn't strong enough to keep the darkness at bay! Who will save us! {{champion:28}} {{champion:56}} {{champion:120}} {{champion:134}} ----------------------------------------- Oh! But there is another group of mysterious guardians that appear to be good, but have their own agendas! Who are these mysterious men, and what are they trying to do? {{champion:201}} {{champion:126}} {{champion:157}}
: Now that we have Star Guardian Lux...
Who will the other senshi be though!
: I guess your implementation makes sense, since the idea is awesome enough to be seen as often as possible. But I still think its a little silly as a respawn would make more thematic sense; Lux spawning as normal girl to then spin and transform into a Star Guardian. But as a recall she doesn't transform at all technically, so the point sorta gets lost. Especially since the death/respawn animation can be pretty memorable and iconic for certain skins like Haunted Maokai. oh wells. just my two bits. :P
Yar, I hear you and it makes sense! The tricky thing there was that in order to have a "regular schoolgirl Lux that transforms at spawn" we would have to create, model and animate a completely -new- model that gets replaced with the Star Guardian Lux model. =/ That actually adds a ton more overhead for this magical lady, and she had to be released at some point! Love the feedback though, it's all great things to keep in mind for our future skins :)
Thryale (NA)
: hmm, I think I see. Pity tho, as it does feel like the small orb creating the laser feels like it's lacking something.
Dude, I so hear you. If the magical girl fans that worked on her here had their way we'd make that ult have the mother of all sonic booms. No wait, we'd MAKE IT GLOBAL WITH STARS AND SPARKLES EVERYWHERE. YES. {{champion:99}}
Thryale (NA)
: I don't quite follow... what I'm imagining is something like a smoke ring of energy that quickly dissipates after the beam fires. How would that have clarity issues?
Her ult does not last long enough for those shockwave trails to linger =/ It's up for less than a second
Thryale (NA)
: I'm actually really surprised you didn't give her ult a star shaped "shockwave" near the staff when she fires her beam. "shockwaves" are rather common in over the top anime when firing off a power beam weapon, so I was wondering why you didn't try to incorporate that trope with this skin.
For game clarity, we didn't want the "shockwave" to represent something that isn't actually going to do anything different in-game. :)
: Lux plz do become meguka
: Star Guardian Lux's transformation sequence is her recall animation, and it's taken straight from Sailor Moon.
What this person said! Sailor Moon was referenced for her recall :)
Vanjie (NA)
: New Lux Skin Critique
Thanks for the feedback :) Not sure what you mean about the wall but I'll take a look at it!
: Lux Magical Girl Transformation Plox.
We were talking about where best to put a "transformation" sequence during development. In the end, we decided that it would be much more noticeable for her recall instead of respawn - in case, y'know, people start feeding just to see the sparkely sparkle respawn :)
: Interview with Surrender@20's Moobeat!
Aw yeah Moobeeb! {{champion:17}}
: GotS Xerath, and his recall animation
It is from the cracking of his armor from the stress of his energy body trying to hold it in place before heading to base :)
: Champion help! Would love for advice!!(:
These would be my suggestions for mids based on your preferences listed :) {{champion:134}} Syndra (AP Mid) {{champion:99}} Lux (AP Mid) {{champion:115}} Ziggs (AP Mid) {{champion:143}} Zyra (AP Mid)

At least on my part I'm not upset because Nidalee is tanner, and it's supposed to be a Chinese skin. I do realize not all Chinese people are pale. That really doesn't bother me, It's just her current skin feels like it's blending into the gold and too much with her armor, it looks all like one shade rather than before the skin really stood out from it. Sorry if this is probably pushing too much, but do you think there could be any possibility of a change? Keep Nidalee's skin identity but maybe brightening it up a bit more so it doesn't mesh too much and stands out from the color palette of her clothing? Again, thanks for taking your time to comment on this thread we really appreciate it :)
This is really great constructive feedback, and is something I can do! :) It's the weekend now, but come next week I can let the team know and we can review this.

: Warring Kingdoms Nidalee Skin Tone Change
Basically: We want to try and keep to some of base Nidalee's themes keep with her tanner skin identity more. There are always going to be arguments "Not all Chinese/oriental people are tan/pale!" and differing preferences in this case. Nidalee is Nidalee and is from the Kumungu Jungle, as there isn't any "oriental" race in Runeterra :) Her skin tone on her older model is actually more pink than the "burnished asian olive" skin tone (especially on the back). I can't speak for her older skins as, well, they're pretty old :x They were made during the first 1-1.5 years of LoL's infancy and our standards have been better defined since then. {{champion:76}}

Dang, that blew me away! (...get it? ohoho) {{champion:40}} Hextech Janna was the second skin I ever bought, right after Guquin Sona :)

Raritits (NA)
: A Gandalf LotR-themed skin would be amazing for him. I'm picturing something like Veigar Greybeard.
Wait wait, a Sarumon themed skin and he can either carry Isengard tower or The Eye of Sauron's tower :O {{item:2050}}
: @RiotNurseFlan What is stopping Riot from releasing a new Zilean skin now that Eve has a new one?
For Eve, we saw an opportunity to create a skin for her before an update that wouldn't interfere too much with any then-current plans with her. This does not mean every potential champion update is in the same state and can be treated in the same way. The team felt it would be a win to create a skin at the chance we got, so we took it instead of passing it up. It may not have coincided with what was said in the past about skin plans, but I think it's much better to try and take things on a case-by-case basis rather than let a statement be the end all be all for the rest of eternity :) Do you play Zilean? Is there something in particular you would want to see for him? {{champion:26}}
: Jinx skin
Like you said, our skins schedule is something we are not able to discuss. :( The best I can suggest is following the [PBE forums](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/) and sites that track the PBE updates to get a sense of what skins are coming in the next patch. Still would love to check out any Jinx skin ideas in this thread! {{champion:222}}
Shíny (NA)
: If i had to guess i think its probably [Michelle Hoefener](http://michellehoefener.deviantart.com/gallery/36854878/Work-and-Commissions). Looks to be the same style(Look at snowstorm sivir) and she did a good job with pop star Ahri before.
This is correct. Splash by Michelle, concept art by Zeronis.
: Skins
It's a legacy skin that is not able to be normally bought from the store.

Oh, you mean like you did for {{champion:28}} who hadn't had a skin for 4 years? All of her skins are pretty much just recolors and have no unique particle effects, so a plain black body suit isn't much of an upgrade :P Sorry, I know this is a Zac topic but I'm still salty :P {{champion:154}}
I understand the salt =/ {{item:3070}} He is not forgotten, but to compare making skins for Eve vs Zac is like baking cookies from a package vs from scratch!
: NurseFlan! :D How are you? You don't know me but I was a fan of yours pre-Riot and I appreciate you.
D'aww {{summoner:31}} I've made it a new years resolution to be much more active on the boards! I wanna try and take care of everybody, woo!

Support main, down for a game :) I'll be online for the next couple hours if you wanted to shoot an invite!
Selegun (NA)
: Hmm, if stationary parts are a problem would something like Magma or Clouds be a bit more texture friendly?
Definitely much easier to work with than metal! Not sure if people would think a Cloud Zac would be too intimidating, but a Magma Zac would look pretty cool o u o! Oh man wait, it could be like a stormcloud Zac and he can cause some lighting and thunder effects for his abilities :O!!
Selegun (NA)
: Sorry I'm alittle late to this party. Would a Mecha or Battlecast skin be within the realm of possible options? Mechanical parts can stretch out using pistons or expanding metal plates and his globlets could be changed to power cores, scrap metal or nuts and bolts piles.
It's definitely possible, but a Mecha/Battlecast skin would mean we would basically have to re-do every animation he has (among other things) so that the metal pieces don't look stretchy while he undulates around > u < (*and* add extra animations for his little pistons and stuff!) If you check out videos of Zac, the mass of his goo sort of shifts itself all over his body, and that might look strange translated to metal :x EDIT: Not saying it can't be done, but a skin like this would definitely run into a lot of issues and would probably be a legendary skin :)
Alphieus (NA)
: I heard a rumor about 1000 wins (again)
Sure, support main here :) I am partial to Teambuilder so I don't have to fight for my role, hehe! I will be online for the next couple hours for an invite if you are free!
: Lux has been in dire need of a good skin for a long time, and while they can't tell us anything about it, NurseFlan told us last night that they're constantly being reminded about it. Personally, I'm still hoping that we get a Sailor Moon themed Lux skin in the near future, but there is a lot that can be done with Lux.

: BTW, where's the PBE forum?
http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/ You must have a PBE account to post, but you can still read through the stuff :)
: Lux's next skin
I totally agree Lux does not need any more military themed skins! This has also been reiterated in our meetings, we are well aware :) We aren't able to reveal what skins we're working on or could be potentially working on, that's just the nature of the beast =/ The best I could suggest is checking out the PBE forums and sites that post about what is on PBE to get a good idea of what skins are coming out the coming patch.
: Why not try using different textures? LIke sand could "stretch" and it would look like a cool texture. Maybe something like sandman zac or hourglass zac Why can't you just make the clothes stretch as well like how Mr.Fantastic or Elongated Man look in the comics when they stretch? :/ I honestly don't think it would look that weird, and you could either opt to leave the globs regular green or make it at least be the same colour.
Oo, I like the idea of really changing his texture to sand. What looks good in comics doesn't always translate well to game models : n ; He is sort of a hometown superhero in his lore though. Would be cool to see him in a superhero suit!
: what about this skin? you could simple allow the shorts to reside inside sac during his ult. since he is a blob his cloths should be able to exist inside him right?
That's a good example! Besides the addition of the swim trunks, it's technically just about a fancy blue recolor though. :x The fanart done of pool party Zac include some cute arm floaties - which I like, but that would again cause problems with his stretchy arms! > n < Summer is coming up for the Northern Hemisphere kinda sorta soonish (brr, that 50 degree California winter weather!). I can definitely make an extra poke about a skin like this! ^*This is not a promise that this skin is going to be made! ; u ;*
Aieaman (NA)
: Zac skins??
**disclaimer* - Zac skins are a hot topic and we are not able to answer any questions about -when- a skin is coming out or is in the works (or any other skins). I'm here to perhaps shed a little light and let you guys know Zac is not forgotten!* Definitely don't think you're being rude! What I can tell you is that Zac's champ and stretchy tech is very difficult to work with, and that alone increases work time on him a lot. So using a popular community skin suggestion for him, Gentleman Zac - his clothes especially around his arms would have some crazy weighting and stretching issues. And it would also be really weird to see cloth stretching and turning into globs of goo haha I'd love to hear any suggestions on workarounds you may have to mitigate this! I know "easy" recolored skins have been suggested for Mr. Blob, but then it would seem unfair if say we released a 750RP Bubblegum Zac and have him wait a while for another skin instead of taking the time to make sure we make a super awesome blow-your-mind quality skin for him.
: I got blood moon thresh as a gift from Riot
: Free Skin Questions
The gifting period isn't over yet, so as long as you meet the requirements found in the announcement you will be receiving a mystery gift. http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/special-event/celebrating-end-years-snowdown It's going to take a few more days (perhaps early into next week) to make sure everyone who has qualified for a gift gets one. This is going out to millions of players all over the world, and we wouldn't want to overload our servers all at once :)
Bleediss (NA)
: Riot wouldn't publish a skin like this, right?
Haha, well we couldn't have it looking so much like things in the Mario Universe - Nintendo wouldn't be too happy with us! That doesn't mean we wouldn't consider something like an 8-bit arcade Zyra skin inspired by Mario!
lmNova (NA)
: So Riot, Why did the Crimson Elite skins stop?
I don't believe there has been any official word stating that the creation of this skin line has stopped. I think, though, that we have been focused lately on themes we can really push the level of detail, fantasy and quality. So things like the Blood Moon skins, Snowdown skins, and the like :) Before we make any more Crimson elite skins, I personally think we should sit down and really define what makes a good thematic and story for a Crimson Elite skin. At the moment, I feel like they look a little too sci-fi to really look like an elite **Noxian **squad :)
