Concept

This is an idea for a promotion for next summer. It would involve a champion sale, skin sale, limited offer skins, a fan contest, and new textures for Summoner's Rift. I got some notice on GD but I would like to both request art and ideas from this community. I have hope that this community is much more creative than GD.

Tagline - There is a big party going on at Summoner's Rift Isle Resort. Champions relax and enjoy the hot sun, cool surf, and island festivities. Competitive sport is encouraged like volleyball, limbo, frisbee. Enjoy the tropical waters with activities like scuba diving, spear fishing, surfing, and swimming.

Champions on Sale

  • Fizz
  • Nautilus
  • Any upcoming aquatic themed champions

Skins on Sale
  • Siren Cassiopea
  • Scuba Gragas
  • Deep One Kassadin
  • Deep Sea Kog'Maw
  • Coral Malphite
  • Rumble in the Jungle
  • Surfer Singed
  • Giant Enemy Crab-got
  • Pool Party Ziggs

Possible Specialty Skins
  • Seagull Anivia
  • Barbeque Brand
  • Driftwood Fiddlesticks
  • Sand Sculpture Galio
  • Beach Goddess Leona
  • Palmtree Maokai
  • Snowcone Vendor Nunu
  • Beach Ball Orianna
  • Jetski Sejuani
  • Frisbee Sivir
  • Lobster Skarner
  • Lifeguard Trundle
  • Wetsuit Vayne
  • Beach Comber Yorick

Please suggest more skin ideas in the comments! I want to get an ocean/beach themed skin idea for every champion. Art would be much appreciated! I know there is already a lot of swimsuit art out there so feel free to post your favorites to this thread.

Fan Contest

Could also just be a Summoner's Showcase but the theme would be beach party or ocean related. I don't think it should be limited just to drawings and that any fan made content should be eligible.

Map Re-skin

It would be awesome if Summoner's Rift became a tropical island complete with palm trees, beautiful beaches, and clear blue surf. Please suggest more ideas for what could be done to make a beach skin truly amazing!

Cool ideas
  • Have the minions all come out wearing hula skirts and hawaiian shirts.
  • hp and mana pots could be slushies/soda while red/blue/green pots are ice cream
  • Baron Nashor's various heads are now coconuts, and the Baron himself is wearing a pair of sunglasses?
  • All Neutral Buffs must be a colored hula hoop.

Lifeguard Trundle MS Paint mockup - http://i.imgur.com/6ttrK.png

He beats people with one of those lifeguard floats and he raised a lifeguard stand for his pillar. Check out those sweet shades and sunblock

oops I just realized that part of his trunks go over his arm. I hope you get the idea.

I just found this link on reddit, i actually am doing champion art in an attempt to build my portfolio for a job app at Riot lol.

I'd love to try my hand at designing a few of these skins.

I think your drawing skill is very good and my advice is to practice a whole bunch! Work especially on non-human forms and strange textures like feathers, scales, wounds, fur, and metals.

Look forward to maybe seeing some of these ideas in your gallery

I know most of these are just homages to fan designed skins, but there might some truth to the skins showcased in the Pool Party Ziggs splash art - http://i.imgur.com/ha3WNh.jpg

Hey there,

Got a little free time to start some of the skin ideas.
Attachment 528854
I got an idea for Wetsuit Vayne, with a nerf squirter for her hand mounted crossbow and a pressure water gun for her corssbow on her back, a beach towel for her cape accompanied by a nice bathing suit and goggles instead of shades.
