Tho, I guess if you don't mind companies ripping you off for profit without giving you any amount of credit, let alone money or a job... then it really doesn't matter how they came up with a nearly identical idea.

Still hoping ya get a shot at making champs for them some day tho, I even applied to Riot for a business analyst position, would love to work there lol. You have some pretty cool ideas and i'm sure more to come tho!

It's definitely a "great minds think alike" situation. I chose to take Quinn in a more oriental fighter direction. They went more mechanical. And I'm willing to bet that they were working on a gauntlet wielding champ before I made my thread -- so I don't see it as "ripping off".

But to acknowledge my thread, and support my art -- is all the "tip of their hat" I need to know I'm on a good path here.

I really like the monster ones the best, a few of the others look a lot like other champs just mixed but besides those ones love them

I do take visual cues from existing champs -- it helps when trying to make a character that might specifically fit into the League -- as opposed to something like say... Metal Gear.

Wanted to chime in here on Vi, a bit since people are curious about the coincidence. For the official record, It takes us anywhere from 4-6 months to concept and produce a LoL champ.

In Vi's case, she's been aeound in various forms for two years. At one point she was a steam-punk capoeira fighter with dreads and robot legs- which sounds way cooler than our drawings for her!

A year ago we started exploring a girl with bad ass metal/tech gauntlets but we couldn't find a way to make her compelling. We were running into challenges with Shyvana overlap, as well as struggling to define who she was as a person. Sometime around this past June, one of our champ concept artists took another crack at her- and came up with the punky ex-criminal persona. We all got super pumped on this new direction and began full pre-production.. GypsyLord's first playable protoype came into design playtest in early July- and we had her marquee charge punch ability day one.

When I first saw this thread a month ago, I was amazed at the coincidence! Kudos to you Izabelle for your creativity.

Hope you all enjoy punching people in the face with Vi.
Ah! that's some nice coincidence xD
I wonder if it is possible to have a skin dedicate to Izabelle!!

My favorite has to be Murdok. As soon as I saw him, I had all these thoughts spark in my head. It would be cool if his Worgen was invisible to other people, and it would walk around with him- and his skills would consist of melee stuff and the Worgen would become visible to strike with Murdok. That would be so awesome.
