'cept none of that has anything to do with her new youthful, smirking appearance, which is what most people are taking issue with.

The Jian, unfortunately, loses all its grace when you scale it up. Also, there are only so many shapes you can make with four giant, fat jian. Her current swords have an exotic undercase 'h' shape which you can create all sorts of cool shapes with.

Also yes, I expected her to look like this when I saw her picture in Journal of Justice Issue 8, which was like a week before LeBlanc was released. I don't know why everyone seems so surprised to see her looking exactly as she appeared in the JoJ only like 5 weeks ago.

As someone who is used to looking at heaps of art I would say that while she looks very "youthful", she still looks around about 20-24 in her current art. Her head is a bit too big in the art, but other than that it's very well drawn and proportioned.

Of course, though, the art is a different beast to the in game model.

I know some people don't like the new color scheme, but I like that they're trying to be more thematically binding, and that the weapon style matches Ionia yi

Well reading this was sure a waste of a minute.

Concept art has some features that are difficult to model.

Best solution?

Let's turn a graceful mature warrior woman with a dark undertone into a 10-year-old kid girl in a totally uninspiring plastic suit.

Nice thinking! I'm sure this was the best and only way to do it.

How about the god**** color? Multiple shades of blue versus one ugly shade of red? Could they have done that?

Also, about the ribbons: Riot was able to make something similar happen with Sona's robes. Why the hell couldn't they animate simple ribbons on Irelia, too? All I wanted was some ribbons.
