IronStylus gets +1 respect for his lengthy counter argument on page 13, all his bases well covered and explained in detail, whether or not they were the answers all the anti hourglass posters wanted they were very solid answers none the less.

muscular women are a turn off, look them up (the real life ones) and know why.

Ooooh excellent. By the way, I used to be a prop builder. I've MADE armor.. though mainly from sculpting in clay, molding, and fiberglassing/resin pouring, but I can certainly attest that metal armor of the boob-conforming variety in practicality is nearly impossible to make in a way that would produce any sort of logistical benefit.

A guy can dream though!

The page he references in the first paragraph is a GREAT source of inspiration for armored female character concepts, too! (Y'know, if anyone were to happen to be looking for such a thing. *cough*)

The female discussion was lost on me, I could see where both sides are coming from on this. I really did enjoy how you defended it though, IronStylus. It's nice to see how designers are taking into accounts some of the tiny things like how clothing can cause some sort of confusion (If it wasn't for Poppy's hair, I honestly think she'd be mistaken for a male constantly). Now, since we have the female discussion out of the way, I plan on looking forward to a hot male champion.

Hmmm, I kind of want to see if I can get IronStylus to respond to my thoughts on Sejuani's design. Maybe second time's the charm?

On a side note, you know what would be a nice function to add to the forums? A little button at the top of each post giving the url to that post for easy linking.
Totally saw your post, googled her, you have excellent points! I'm a bit brain burned to give you any sort of meaningful input aside from.. "Words! Good! Banana!"

People will always want to see more than they’re allowed. An exposed ankle will make someone blush if they’ve always been denied access to them in the past. If your characters are naked, there’s nothing to tease us with. A well considered bare shoulder can be way sexier than full frontal nudity. Put a bit of thought into when and how you expose your characters. The anticipation and the idea can be more enticing than the full show.
Oh my god this.

No, you completely missed the point. The poster is pointing out that champions who should be physically strong should look it no matter which ***. If you're hurting people with your fists (Lee Sin) or carrying a large weapon and swinging it freely (Trymdamere) you should have muscle.

So he is half right.
