Hey Izzabelle,

I just want to give me thoughts on Rhodes today. Personally, I think his design is pretty solid at the moment (no pun intended) because you successfully captured the essence of an earth smith in your design. What works with the design is the colors for a start because not only does the color scheme say that Rhodes is one with the earth or closely involved with the earth, but it also says that Rhodes is a human with his own goals. Also, with the current drawing of him, his face express self confidence or steadfastness which I assume what you're trying to aim.

Although Rhode's current design is really good, it could use a few improvements. I'll start of with a few nit picky grips I have with his design. First, I don't really like how his hammer is drawn because from it's current angle, it kinda looks like cardboard and also I don't like that the hammer's faces are completely square because if the faces were completely square, Rhodes would have a hard time smithing the earth since his hammer apply enough force to actually work the earth since all of the force of the hammer will be dispersed through the entire face of the hammer. So, maybe add a few corners to the hammer, so the hammer actually looks like it could smith something.

My major problem with Rhodes' current design is that it doesn't tell us who "Rhodes is." What I mean is that you did make a cool terramancer character, but who is he outside this label? You attempted to tell us who Rhodes was in his lore description by saying that he was a mercenary and part of a terramancer clan, but I can't really see these attachments in his current design. Another question that I think you should ask yourself when you come back to Rhodes' design is what differentiates himself from the other terramancers in the clan he comes from? Is he some leader figure of his clan? Was he banished from his clan and force to take up mercenary work to live?

In summary,

-The base design of Rhodes is good, but it needs a few additions
-Change the hammer a bit so it looks like it could be used to smith or fight with
-Add something that would define Rhodes' character. Like if was a "lone wolf" kind of character try to emphasize this trait in Rhodes' design

A lot of these are pretty neat design...

Castor/Pollux want want want
Riot pls
Something like a duo caster design where the ult works kind of like nidalee, except switches out which is casting, would be soooooo ****ing cool ;w;

I posted a kit for Castor/Pollux on page 80 that Izzabelle liked. Ulti works very similar to nid's

I really like the charcter ideas. Though I gotta say with Quinn, I don't know why an Ionian survivor would be wearing a big Hextech style punching machine. I thought they were more natural with their strength.

Still, love the characters. I'd love to see some of these made. Sepcailly Katsumi. Can always use more girls with swords.

Any reason Rhodes is AP? I dont really get the AP vibe from him. He seems like an AD bruiser.

I would like to see a 4 armed champion. Maybe a 4 armed caster of sorts?
