bump,

I think that this is a good point as artist we are dependent on silhouette to make the character recognizable? and you can't say that you can't pull it out anymore because you want to match the style. There are a few champions that are zoomed out more than the normal (sona, nid, tf).
The Lux one is not tooo bad since she still has some contrast in it. but morg's is the worst.

BTW: did any one every get confused between the ez and cass icons ingame before?

BTW i LOVE the new art on lux, Its as good as the Chinese except that it looks much brighter and cheerful and lazzory. which is more spot on the character.

Realized that these were cropped like this, to keep the background out.

However, Lux's Face Icon just TERRIBLE! Its nothing but a focus on her forehead and its really heavy near the bottom.

SOLUTION: Just Zoom it out a little bit, show some of her hair to frame her face better, its really off-putting at the moment. Really easy and a small change that would just look much better, and even adds more character.

Image 1 is the current way and image 2 is just cropped with more information.
EDIT: I actually noticed that this way will work better with the circle icon on the minimap as well. ^_^

Please bump and upvote this if you support this small but dramatic change.

morgs is ok either way. but yea lux's icon needs a change. your zoomed out idea looks like a reasonably easy fix.

Or! Or, hear me out here guys.

They stick with the zoomed in so she looks homicidal, and make it so it slowly rotates during the game. Best Idea NA.
