Any chance Heimerdinger can get a VU? He's practically had the same splash art forever, and it's ugly.

While I love the strange jiggle-wiggle he does while he walks, I can see this direction being a much better fit for the poisonous assassin rat.


Also, after reworks are completed any chance of seeing a gallery of "rejected" concepts? Even if it isn't on site, I just love checking out concept art, even better if there was a quick summary as to why it didn't work out, but that's just me being optimistic. Blizzard is doing something really neat on their World of Warcraft site with their Model VU's for the upcoming expansion, and it'd be really cool for something similar to happen with champions with either a VU or brand new champs just after their release.

I'd like to show off some process like we did with Sivir at PAX a bit more often. I think there's a lot of interesting stuff that happens during a creation of a relaunch.

Please fix Sivir's dance. The new one is just blah. And PAX Sivir received virtually no compensation for not being touched up.
