Updating Skins [An Easy Solution for Riot!]

One thing in particular I've noticed especially with Nidalee is that Riot updated her original artwork but left her other skins making them look very outdated in contrast, and I mean what is up with Nidalee's boobs on her French Maid and Snowleopard skins, haha.

So back to the point, I think Riot should update older skins. Of course this would be a very time consuming task so I think they should simply update to the Chinese art work. Take for example if you compare the current artwork to the Chinese art work for Nidalee here: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wik...ee/SkinsTrivia (http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Nidalee/SkinsTrivia). It would be easy enough to do and would look much better in my opinion.

This should also be done with old Christmas skins, take for example Miss Fortune's skin.

This is the current artwork: http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/4..._candycane.jpg (http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/4/49831/1655946-missfortune_candycane.jpg)
Whilst this is the Chinese artwork: http://saerys.files.wordpress.com/20...aneskin_ch.jpg (http://saerys.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/miss_fortune_candycaneskin_ch.jpg)
A giant improvement from whatever was going on with her pouty lips in the latter and also fits the more modern style that league have been releasing new champions in.

So what do you think? Should Riot update old skins to Chinese, at least just until they have the time to update them? Let's try to get this going and see if Riot respond!

So glad you highlighted Candy Cane MF. I totally agree, the American artwork is too damn fugly to be worth it while the Chinese is just amazing.

A lot of champs have vastly superior Chinese artworks so it'd be cool to replace some of the more outdated ones with them.

Yeah, I think this doesn't apply to the newer art - They look good. Just to skins that aren't available anymore such as leopard nidalee and the older outdated artwork such as Poppy or Tristana where the Chinese artwork would nicely replace them. I do however think that some of the Chinese artwork such as Evelynn's are too sexual and anime styled.
