(that might be a bad example, but it gets my point across)

edit: actually probably a better example would be to just change the color scheme, brighten it up a bit.
That's more the art folk territory (as I defer to them on what's good visually), but am very interested in the how/why/strategy of what we give you guys on this front. Has IronStylus commented on this in another thread - I think I'd seen something then.

Not yet as we have to prioritize. You're right that under normal circumstances, we wouldn't do another Lux skin for awhile, but I'd like to do one sooner due to this oversight here. We have more characters in this camp as well, so it's not going to be immediate. I don't have a timetable now, but I'd like to get something figured out here as we flesh this out.

I just started working heavily with skins a few weeks back, so I'm still figuring some of the details out.

Yes!

Angels are also more mythology and less technology so having her get a legendary tech skin seemed odd.

Maybe it wasn't meant to be "the" skin for her, but it sure seemed like it should have been.

Any thoughts on that Morello?
Agreed entirely. I think Aetherwing is really, really cool, but what's the Kayle skin Kayle players are salivating for? I'd bet it doesn't exist either.

Like I want to see a Lux skin and just think 'that's her'. If you know what I mean.
I'm a fan of this skin, but I think it's the type of skin you release after you meet the core expectations of Lux players. Since the work is done, we're going to release it anyhow, but it's the issue that I think exists.

This was talked about quite a bit actually when the skin was first seen on the PBE and the whole uproar started, Link here: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...light=lux+skin
the ideas about what people would rather have in the skin, what should be changed, what people wanted to see instead, ect ect ect. dont occur till mid-way through the thread. there is some good information/ideas on this topic in that thread though.

As a Kayle fan, I feel that no, it doesn't exist, and the existence of Aetherwing Kayle makes me worry that it never will, especially in legendary form.
