Inertia and link tension. Flailed it forward first, now bringing it backwards

*lights a candle for Kayle's old model*

Edit: and unfortunately, everyone else seems to think that boobplate is a substitute for a breastplate, as far as "plain full-plate" is concerned.

Well, proportion, accentuation, exaggeration, etc. Want the feminine form to read in a game? Welp, guess what, it might have to be a bit more famine and/or stylized than usual to read at the proper distance and keep readable when moving. That's just making sure we cover the basics of simple silhouette recognition. If we make her too broad, you might mistake Sejuani for a male, that'd be, ya know, not what we want.
I'm not sure you'll ever get to this part of the thread, but please, if you do get to this post and you have some time on the way to/from work tomorrow, consider whether this really matters. Is the gender of a character really so important? Does it matter whether or not Kayle is male or female? Surely there are other far more important things, like how vicious the character is, or how sensual, or how malicious, or how thoughtful...

Kayle's gender doesn't seem to significantly change the person that she is, and I think this is true for most people - it's such a tiny aspect of the people that we are, and seeing the overwhelming number of "idealised" figures in computer games often makes me feel that game artists seriously overstate the importance of gender. In Sejuani's case, I think this comes at the high cost of making her *even more* strong, vicious, and independent than she already appears.

I'd be sad to see all the "idealisation" and sexiness removed from LoL's characters, but I'd be so happy to see more Shyvanas (the human model, at least - the dragon model makes me sad), more Kayles, more Twisted Fates, and more Ezreals, *as well* as the Jannas, Tryndameres, and Sejuanis.

EDIT: P.S. I am ambivalent about Leona.

On the one hand, she's skinny. Like, a size 2. She looks like she would find it hard to hold up a toothpick.

On the other hand, she's the most awesome character ever - I've bought both her kick-ass skins and will buy any more that are released immediately - she's strong, 'good' but not boring, has an interesting and rewarding playstyle, and is the *hottest* size 2 I have ever seen in my entire life.

On the other hand, SHE'S SO SKINNY GRRARRGRRGHHH.
