Yeah, that's one thing I'm very weary of. That's why.. sort of a blessing in disguise.. that the changes I'm going to be playing with will only be on the texture side of things. At this point I'd be really sticking it to the 3D guys and animators if I made large shape changes or added thick armor. I'm going to make material swaps and see if thin armor feels right rather than thick chunky shapes. This skin is intended to be elegant, it shouldn't be too bulky as far as my opinion goes.

Was just gonna ask this despite it being a Diana discussion, but a lot of people are quite passionate about it.
For background, a while back Lunar Karma popped up as a name in the shop, so everybody assumed it was a new Lunar Revel skin coming. Needless to say, disappointment for those who wanted it.

I would take a look at the rest of the skins in the eventual patch. I think she balances things out. However, one thing in my concept I'm noticing is that the purple I use is a lot paler than what I'm seeing on the model. Again, this might make the game read better, but at the same time it might be causing some uncomfortable contrast. A lot of this is in the zone of "feeling" and it's going to be a subtle task.

Alrighty then, that was my only concern, looking forward to the final result. Thanks for the clarification.

If I remember correctly.. and I don't know that I am.. I think it was scrapped for being below our quality standards for some reason. Not sure why and I'm definitely not an authority on that so take it with a grain of salt.

Off-Topic: a lot of people were really upset Elise's first post-release skin was exclusive to Gold & up.

Any plan in the future to make it Riot policy to not use a champion's first post-release skin as an exclusive reward?

For Bronze/Silver Elise fans/players, this was a severe letdown, and I think it'd be wiser if first post-releases were exempt from such an exclusion... notice, I say ONLY first ones, second & beyond is fine.

On-Topic: I think the weapon could use a little bedazzle... like some bling, maybe inlay some like 3 jewels along the outside-edge? Those stockings could be made into mail-armor quite easily with some texture/recolor... no reshape even necessary, that would be a perfect place to hit!
