Was this the champ that Gypsy was working on?
She looks awesome and fun as hell.

I love the flair she has going on, specifically with that corset and the different knee guards.

Plus, she looks like she has opportunities for some fun skins.

I think Vi is sexy.

Riot failed to non-sexualize her. She looks like she'd be a wild one. WIth tattoos!

I take all the criticism, believe me. Even the stuff I have nothing to do with.
Like MTF I mean you still care right? The thread might be closed but you said you and Riot care? How is it going?

I can agree with Shyvanna, Lux, and Leona....


...but I can't agree with Kayle. I literally thought she was a male until I played her for myself. You can't even identify her gender until she takes off her helmet or says something. The whole Samus Aran thing is bad design, especially considering she's not exactly supposed to be a tomboy.

I'd prefer it, sure. Or at least Leona-level.

I don't mind covered up champs at all. Leona is one of my favorite supports and I love Hilde in Soulcalibur. My only real problem with Vi is her hair. Short hair never looks good on women. Ever.

Ironstylus!

You may not remember but I made a post right after worlds about the lack of female Sciency types in LoL here, but I guess nobody cares.

I just wanted to say thank you, and that I'm glad you're on the Riot art team and able to dish out such concentrated awesomeness.

Splash/Teaser art where, though? :O

I've said my piece to stakeholders and gotten all the information that I can get in my realm of expertise. I've acted upon anything that was able to be acted upon. That's all I can do.

That is the whole point. She is a warrior who doesn't let her gender define herself as a character. She may be beautiful, but that is secondary to everything her character represents. Why does a female have to run around in revealing or shapely armor to be a good design? If a character is a good character, their actions, attitudes, and personality define them more than their design ever will.

Really? Then why continue to shy away from Nami discussion?
