I'm actually suprised this isn't a feature already, and has probably already been suggested but I hate the risk you take if you're playing your new fave champion, want a skin, and you get a craving for one of their AMAZING skins. However, you haven't seen it yet in-game. The art work looks good, so you get the skin.
You try it out in game and you're wondering why on earth you bought that skin.
I suggest that, like the skills preview tab, there's a video or something to allow you to preview what the skin looks like in game, rather than an artwork.
Yeah there's youtube, but it'd just make things so much easier.

I agree. If I regularly play a character I almost always want a skin. The art can be very different then how the character actually looks in-game and I always have to search this forums skin thread (and google if it isn't updated to have the current skin I am looking to acquire). It doesn't take a lot of effort but it is very inconvenient. With all of the updates that Riot is making to the character preview features I would love to see this added as well. It would make purchasing skins a little less time consuming.

I just went through this experience. I was tired, and just got done playing an amazing game as tank Jarvan IV. I asked my friends what skin I should get, and they recommended Darkforge Jarvan IV. The artwork looked amazing so I bought it without researching it. I got in game and was SO disapointed. It looks so different in game than it does on the artwork.

I think this would be great. I had to download a model viewer to see the skins in detail before buying them.
