Vlad and Malz aren't lanky? You can't get more emaciated looking without going to Karthus.

From the ground up: Leona, Talon, Skarner, Xerath, Graves, Diana.

Concept/Production art: Sejuani, Ahri, Viktor, Volibear.

Skins: Midnight Ahri, Subterranean Nautilus, and a pile of others you haven't seen.

Currently working on 2 other champions in the pipeline and a few reworks.

The next champion you'll see that I worked on.. good god.. it's got me written all over it.

Where are the women with short hair, you have no idea how much I loved this sketch of an early Diana when I saw you upload it to your blog. Sure we have Riven, but can I not want more?

Glasses would also be cool (regardless of gender), Vayne pulls them off very well but out side of her and maybe a skin or two they aren't very prevalent in the game. Theodore Roosevelt wore glasses and kicked all kinds of ass, why can't more league characters do it? I realize that replicating Theodore Roosevelt levels of ass kicking may be impossible, but glasses aren't.

One last comment. I know this thread was primarily focusing on the "human" champions, but what about the monsters? For female "monsters" you've only really got Anivia & Cassiopeia. You might be able to lump in Soraka (big Satyr influences in the design), Ahri (Kumiho/Kitsune) & Zyra (possibly some influence from modern fictional use of Alraunes), but they are pretty human in appearance. Why aren't things archetypes like Harpys, Arachne, Scylla, Siren, Slimes etc explored? Cassiopeia may be seen a failed foray with the lamia/medusa inspiration (I contend it is due to the hood and if Mythic Cassiopeia were the original base model she would have been received much more positively in terms of visuals), but are there any plans/possibilities of seeing another effort from Riot on this front?





OH And fuuuuuuuuuuuu, I forgot to ask you at PAX. Didn't you used to work on armor and models for special effects type stuff at your previous job, or am I misremembering something? I totally wanted to make an Iron Solari costume, but I ran short on cash/time but still thought that question might be relevant to my interest in making the costume.

Vlad, sure. Malzahar is one of the last champions I'd consider lanky. Look at Djinn Malzahar, or his concept art. Hell, his default splash is effectively arm porn (which I'm personally okay with).

Last time, I started a list with Shyvanna, as a positive, and her two scantily-clad contemporaries Sejuani and Ahri to balance the scales.

I guess this time we can feature Diana, and use Syndra and Zyra as the counterpoints?

I'm pretty stoked to see what's in store for the non-sexual exception to the rule next year.
