Nice work!
Thanks! I'm going to continue making champ concepts here, and hopefully sometime in the future -- for Riot.

Firstly, I'm a fan of your work here Izabelle! Very fun and creative stuff here!

Wanted to chime in here on Vi, a bit since people are curious about the coincidence. For the official record, It takes us anywhere from 4-6 months to concept and produce a LoL champ.

In Vi's case, she's been aeound in various forms for two years. At one point she was a steam-punk capoeira fighter with dreads and robot legs- which sounds way cooler than our drawings for her!

A year ago we started exploring a girl with bad ass metal/tech gauntlets but we couldn't find a way to make her compelling. We were running into challenges with Shyvana overlap, as well as struggling to define who she was as a person. Sometime around this past June, one of our champ concept artists took another crack at her- and came up with the punky ex-criminal persona. We all got super pumped on this new direction and began full pre-production.. GypsyLord's first playable protoype came into design playtest in early July- and we had her marquee charge punch ability day one.

When I first saw this thread a month ago, I was amazed at the coincidence! Kudos to you Izabelle for your creativity.

Hope you all enjoy punching people in the face with Vi.

SUPER KUDOS! in 4 weeks Quinn became Vi!

I wish they kept the name though we need a champion that starts with Q! >_<

How awesome that your Quinn concept aligns so nearly to Vi

I especially like the idea for Castor/Pollux, I think that they should both exist on the field at the same time, maybe some sort of wacky yordle event fuses the two at the hip so to speak.

Claire is another, I really like the tie in to Caitlyn's arch-nemesis who we only know as "C", champs like this are what make the lore behind the game so believable, its just a shame it went by the wayside.

I'd love to see some of the early concept work for her. Actually, I'd like to see all of her process TBH. I think it's awesome to have come so close to an actual champion concept already in the gun -- and I can not wait to play her.

I made Quinn because honestly -- I wanted this character to exist to play as. So to me, this is just way too awesome. I get to play the character I thought of -- even if I didn't think of her first, lol.
