The Goth Annie splash is older than the early Nidalee skins, so that might have driven the art team to do more here.
My problem with all of this has nothing to do with "she got it and now I want it waaah". The job was never completed. These visual reworks have set a standard. For whatever reason this standard is being disregarded and I call foul on that. It was bad enough Divine Soraka got a weak tweak but Nidalee's skins got flatout skipped. Finish the job before moving on.

Yeah, I sort of half agree.

But why is she crying? >.>

And why is she sitting on the floor in the dark?

And why is she surrounded in paper? Does she write poetry, or draw all of a sudden, just because she's goth?

-shrugs- I like the Chinese one, I think they should've used that

So why's this ok?
Because "goth" is a style represented in popular culture and not an entire history of people's culture and background.

This isn't that difficult a concept, and frankly I think is "outrage for outrage's sake"

Being perfectly honest I am a goth, and while the previous Annie's gothdom was kind of lame and in question, the current one is way more on the money. Looks like Tim Burton and 90s Hot topic had a baby. Good times.

I still prefer the chinese art, but the new one is leaps better than the original.

I hope you're being sarcastic here.

I don't agree with the crying being in there. The crying implies she's more emo than goth. Goths aren't miserable and depressed, even when alone. Riot, you're bringing Emumu's theme to Goth Annie.

What would have been more appropriate is an evil grin and a wicked look in Annie's eyes. Those traits would better depict her ambition for succeeding with her sorcery on Tibbers.

Just out of curiosity, because Annie had her splash's reworked (including her skins) while Nidalee didn't.
