Due to people being so annoying about it, i had to downvote you. Also, Nami's not sexualized. but i bet that her, barely showing her breasts, is so escandalized to you.

@Parrotman I'm still curious, was her design heavily influenced by Roller Derby styles? Slap some skates on her and she may as well be a Derby girl.

I like this alot.
I think we should have more skin color diversity with all types of humanish champions.

[Plus I don't think Nami's are smaller than average, but that might be the massive cleavage talking...]
Nami's not so much "below average" as "below LoL average".

Nothing is wrong with Korra-like muscles. They're great for Korra. You wouldn't notice much difference in-game if we bulked her up due to the game angle. Game angle causes foreshortening, foreshortening causes compression. With the essentially icon-sized real estate that the champions end up with you'd have to push proportions severely to make noticeable difference. It's a matter of smart use. That wouldn't really be the best use of that choice in this particular case.

It might seem logical from an artistic standpoint to bulk her up, but from a game-centric view such bulking up would serve a different character better. She's served appropriately by the gauntlets, those are the big reads. Heavy emphasis on bulkier muscle anatomy or even a sturdy build wouldn't be a significant enough pay-off and might even clump up the silhouette.

A more hefty build would suit a character which has more exposed anatomy, not a body covered in large reads like the gauntlets or other types of armor.

So you downvote me because you dislike what other people are saying...? -.0

Edit: Damnit IronStylus, this is like the 3rd time I have posted right under you unintentionally. -.-

In that giant oversexualization thread, he mentioned a female barbarian he was working on.

Yes to that.

I don't have a picture of it but do you know what WarMachine (the table top game) is? If Vi's backpack unit was like the warcaster figures from that universe I think it would fit in better with the "natural" tech. level of LoL.

Currently it does feel a little bit like Vi has Pulsefire Ezreal tech. - which I feel is supposed to be above and beyond what is normal to the LoL landscape.

Parrot, why are you making a row of female champions, and why aren't they as hot as previous ones?

I mean I'm not hating on the fact that new champs aren't so sexualized but sexy is fun. There needs to be a balance, and wouldn't you as an artist agree?

Things I've been noticing are:

A lot of female champs in a row (I heard the one after Vi is gonna be female too)

So far, they aren't sexy in the general sense (Nami is a fish, Vi is fully armored)

Not only am I feeling forgotten about as a male, but the lack of the new champs being hot (in the most widely appreciated way) is putting me down.
