Yes! Us too. We recently went through a period where we felt the splashes were all action packed combat poses. This is great, but we also want to dig a little deeper into who these champs are and what they are about. The creative design team creates quite a backstory for the champs and we want to express more of that in the art. Take a look at some of the upcoming splashes and let us know what you think!

It would be beyond amazing if you guys would make new summoner icons in such an amazing quality as the recent champion splash screens (*^▽^*)

Hi RiotNarya.
You guys are doing a great job, and having played since Xin release I'm pleased with the progression over time.

One thing I'd really like seen to though is something that's bugged me for ages. Frosted Ezreal, when doing his idle animation (taking off and inspecting goggle-things) has a black patch where his hair should be that isn't on the blond Ezreal skins. I've made posts in the @Ezreal thread in the past, but he said he has nothing to do with it and can only pass word along.
Hope this gets it fixed though, as I know it's literally a 2-minute job to fix it

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Hopefully you guys were listening to the thread about the discussion on gender in League of Legends (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2646142).

I hope you guys take some of the points to heart. The ball really is in the art department's court as to whether a champion is regarded as a champion that other female players can really connect with or just a champion who is a sexual object. Ironstylus hinted that you guys already have some oversexualized champions too far down the pipeline to be changed, but I hope you guys can make a good effort going forward? EG Diana was excellent and a first day buy for me. Hope to see more like her!

I've noticed that lots of champion abilities have odd animations in that the effective range of the ability does not quite match the animations range.

Ashe's Volly animation flies farther then the damage. Meaning it looks like you hit but you don't. Caitlyn has the same problem with Piltover Peacemaker.
Rumble's Flamespitter animation is too short. Your character is not in the fire, but you are still taking damage.

Do you have any plans to clean up animations so that they match the numerical ranges better?

Also. most champions need there autoattack frames cleaned up so that last hitting with an autoattack is much more crisp. I think Olaf and Ahri are great examples of what how responsive an autoattack should be.
