I really wasn't too terribly concerned about Nami because, well, I think she's a cool design.

Did I notice the ruffles revealing some fish flesh? Yeah, I saw it months ago. Did I think it was particularly a good idea to poo-poo the design when it was on its way, when it was gathering momentum, and when it was being passionately worked on by the artist? Hell no. This will be this particular artist's first champion ever in the game. It's her show in that regard. I didn't find the cleavage to be a monumental red flag.

When I saw the concept I was like.. look at this stuff, isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think this concept's complete? Wouldn't you think she's the girl, the girl that has, everything? Look at those frills, how they unfold. How many wonders can one mermaid hold? Looking around here you think, sure, she's got everything. She's got flippers and scepters a plenty. She's got dashes and splashes galore. You want complementary curves? She's got twenty. But who cares, no big deal, she wants more.

She wants to be where the players are, she wants to see, wants to see them fighting, thinking inside of those, what do you call them? Oh, brains! Flipping to mid you don't get to far. Supports are required for healing, casting, strolling along on that.. what's that word again? Lane! Up where they toss, up where they stun, up where they lane all day in the sun, wandering free, wished she could be, part of that role.

What would she pay, if she could play, out of those waters? What sort of gift, would let her lift, up to the game? Betcha in the rift, they get the drift, that they appreciate their healers. Crowd controllers, supporting rollers, ready to sustain, and ready to help with Carry's job. Lock up the gankers and get some assists. What's a Baron, and how does it, what's the word? Buff! When's it enough? Wouldn't they love, love to play some support up above?

Out of the sea.

Wished she could be.

Part of that roll.



..tune in next time when I explain our champion creation process akin to how the mice put together Cinderella's dress.

Man, that's way better than the one I wrote :<

I got musically owned by a Concept Artist. Not cool, they're supposed to be better than me at art, not life (I love IronStylus, for many many reasons, now I have another).

In other news: Dude, Mermaids are generally freaking seductresses. It's how it goes. Mermaids were the fantasies made up by lonely sailors who had been out to sea too long without ladies.

And Elise (aside from being monstrous in her monster form)? She's _also_ a seductress. Have you heard how she talks? Read her backstory? Her job is to seduce by any means necessary, be it *** or with the promise of power, unwitting mortals to follow her back (essentially) Vilemaw's lair, so she can continue to live forever.

Also, really bro? You're equating huge breasts with seductress? Why does someone having large breasts mean they have to be a seductress? Maybe they're shy? Maybe they hate that everyone is constantly staring at a part of their body they couldn't control? Maybe they hate constantly being objectified by people like you who assume that because her breasts are large she would be willing to hope into bed with you at the drop of a hat?

"Oh," you say. "But her breasts aren't just big! They're revealed!" Well, she isn't human dog. She isn't wearing freaking clothes. She can't choose how her body looks. Fizz is naked. Is he a ****? Anivia? Galio, Malphite, Cho'gath, Kog'maw, Kha'zix?

Why should she have to wear clothes when they don't? Because her body involves what appear to be breasts to humans?

Grow up.

I couldn't care less about the design of this particular champ but.. you.. sir.. are a genius.

Anivia is a classy lady, but unfortunately, yes, Fizz is a dirty, dirty fish-*****.

I wouldn't have complained if it was just an ordinary sexualized mermaid. It would have been boring but that's what mermaids are, aquatic temptresses. The problem is that her skin is literally peeling off of her body to reveal her breasts. I'm beginning to lose a bit of faith in you IronStylus. You've talked a lot of talk about how the over sexualization of female champions is a major concern internally but we continue to see champs with gratuitous amounts of it seemingly tacked on. Constructive criticism is part of the work place, especially with something as subjective as art. Given how this is also supposedly a hot topic internally there's no way bringing this up to the artist would crush anyone's dreams and aspirations.
If you noticed, her face has the same skin as her boobs. The "peeled skin" is probably just some sort of clothes.
Actually, I think she looks gorgeous

News at 11: women are not breasts that just happen to be attached to person, contrary to their depiction in LoL.

And now for the weather.
