@ RIOT why do champion reworks take longer than making a new champ?

Which champion is your favorite design-wise? Such as, the one whom you feel is the most impressive.

I know how difficult it is to have multiple textures on one champion, especially when it transitions, but my question is, how is Dragon Master Swain coming in that regard?

..8D?

Should we expect Karma to get a visual rework with her new mechanics?
Yes She will have a visual upgrade.

That's a good one. The quality of the models has improved a ton in the year I have been here, I think my favorite though has to be Hecarim. Not so much his design and stuff, but the process we used to make him revamped our pipeline and upped the quality over all for all the champions since. Technically I think Khazix is our most impressive champ. A lot of disciplines had to come together to make that guy. We basically learned a lot from making PFE and used that knowledge to make kha zix.

It's part of the Riven Battle Bunny splash art.

It's probably on a much lower priority than someone like say, Master Yi, or Karma, but do you have any plans on visually upgrading Olaf? He's probably my new favorite character right now but I really feel like Brolaf and his original model are a little bare compared to the newer content Riot is pumping out.

So what is up with the new models being so huge? Both raka and TF just dawrf all the champions and it really looks a bit awkward at the moment.
