AWESOME! I love her model and her animations for her human form...

But her feet bug me like nothing else. Seriously it looks really weird... like she has something on top of a normal foot instead of spider limbs.

I hope the attachment works... first time using attachments.
The freaky foot has been circled. is there a reason her feet were made like this?

Really, if you look closely at Elise's foot, you see it isn't really like a spider's limb at all. Rather, it's just a human leg wearing impossible footwear. You can even see the heel and everything. Honestly, by all accounts, she shouldn't even be able to stand up, let alone walk like that.

Theres nothing wrong with it, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to wear in real life, but its a game.

The black part is her foot/leg, and the pointy red ends is part of the high-heel shoes she is wearing, to help her look like a spider.

It isn't actually meant to be completely real, it is just one part of her design aspect. In the world of computer game design, it doesn't actually have to work in real life; or else why is Ryze casting magic? How does Elise rappel onto an non-existent celling? How can Sona heal people by music?

The fact that it's impossible to wear means there's something wrong with it. Even a fantasy has to have enough grounding in reality for it to be at least remotely believable, otherwise it breaks the illusion and just becomes a distraction. Elise's 'feet' go beyond to the point that it's immersion breaking. She just looks ridiculous and it's impossible to take seriously. It's easier to imagine a world in which magic exists, than it is to imagine a world in which the laws of physics do not, which is where you need to tread in order to believe Elise is able to stay standing, let alone walk, run, and fight.

It's made worse by the fact that it bears no actual resemblance to a spider's leg. Spider legs don't end in sharp points like that, and they're generally the same thickness from base to foot. Even spider legs that ARE thin to the point of resembling needles (something which is only the result of the spider itself being so small), it's still capable of actually using them specifically because it has more than 2, and spiders walk in such a way that there are at least 4 touching the ground at all times in order to keep themselves balanced.

I can't tell from your post if you think this is a problem or not, however, league isn't bound to 'real life' limitations. there's a talking fish , a talking ice bird, heck there's a freaking mouth that walks (kog) :P
