She always felt, to me, like a matriarch. The new splash art does not do her justice in any kind of way. It turns her into an anime character rather than someone who is supposed to be infused with wisdom. Her face and side boob really detract from who i think she is. It sucks to someone who was established as woman in league has been turned into a sexified goat girl.

I know i know. Goat legs. Unicorn. But you can still see it in her design. I was really hoping for a classier approach like with Leona and Diana. Her ingame model i feel is fine and definitely looks better. But her splash art is just not how i see her.
What he said. Exactly.

She reminds me now a lot now of the Na'vi from James Cameron's Avatar.
Except if it were made by manga artists.
+ 1 set of hooves.

Not really sure if she meshes well into the rest of the art style flow yet.
Her cutsie look is an odd spin on the "mature" style her old character seemed to use.
I'm not really liking the spike going through the crescent moon.

Nice remake though. I can't wait for some of the older champs to get a rework too.
Being well versed in the creation of 3d assets, those low polygon feet have bothered me since i started playing league.

I really dislike how you changed her legs to angle back how human legs do.
It makes playing her 1000% funner when you can pretend you're an AT-ST walker from starwars...

Although it does look really nice. Definitely a great job!
But, too humanoid now for my taste.
Just another cute face instead of that demonic crazy banana flinging unicorn monster with that old laugh... that old laugh man... Spamming it in lane as much as you spam bananas instawins the lane.
I'm 'bout to cry thinking about how Riot is cutewashing over one of my favorite champions, nay, one of my favorite CHARACTERS.

Do you always fight so poorly, Riot?
