Dear Riot concept artists, I'm not sure if you've seen this or not but when you're looking for body references for bodies to create for LoL I suggest you look at Howard Schartz and Beverly Ornstein's photography compilation titled “The Athlete”. You can google the images or just get the book. What they did was take photographs of various Olympians to show how athletic manifests in different body shapes.
Some examples from the collection:

I think these are great references for building diverse artwork with humanoid body types.


This is excellent. I'm always looking for good references for differing body types when drawing. Thanks!

That's funny, I was pretty sure they already released Zyra, but this new champion looks like Zyra with a new coat of paint.

The "She was already in the pipeline" excuse is only going to work for so long, Riot. Even putting aside other complaints, it's downright embarrassing that she's practically a carbon copy of Zyra.

Let me rephrase.

IronStylus implied that there is some amount of women who ALREADY have sexy designs who are UPCOMING, such as Elise, who was, in all likelihood, FAR into development by the time this megathread was made. In other words, The good ideas for undersexualized/alternatively sexualized females will probably be coming in 2013.


I would agree with your point, if it wasn't for the fact that the threads talking about the lack of diversity in female model types are also pretty damn old. You do know this thread isn't the first case of people complaining about that right?

Originality. It's missing Fiora, but you get the point.

Elise looks like she's wearing the same battle lingerie as Zyra.

I'm not particularly impressed with this one, queens are supposed to be regal. They're classy and sexy at the same time, without showing any skin. At least her second skin could've been what I just described, but it's basically a lighter green Zyra with no red. I expected something visually wise akin to the evil queen from the original Snow White, tall with a sense of arrogance, and you can definitely tell she's powerful.

My biggest issue isn't actually that she's all sexualized, it's that she looks nothing akin to a spider. Coattails don't make her a spider, anymore than wearing a crown makes someone a queen.
