Hey! Nice work on all the new animations... Although, as for the dances... A loooot (most) of the old ones are very clunky and eh (lol veigar, lol malphite). If you could put a lot of those on the backlog, that'd be cool! You may just want to go through all the old chars, pull up a /d and /t, and look what needs improvement haha.


This would be ideal... if we have some time for it.

Ahh, great that the animators know of this... I mean, her heel kick is kind of cool, but looses it's novelty when that's all she does. And that standing and walking animation is bleh.

I wonder, do you do ANY mocap? I know mocap studios are expensive to rent so I'm 100% sure you don't do regular mocap, but was wondering if you do any mocap at all :P


Nope, our animations don't lend themselves to it (esp. not the amount we need or don't need). We rotoscope dances which is close to mocap =)

Art Related: Will Udyr ever get a decent skin, such as a legendary?

Animation: Will there every be a skin that gives a custom animation? Such as Amumu's ult making him spin, or Teemo doing the jerk if he's stealthed?


1.) Yes
2.) We have lots of skins with custom animation already... they are mostly legendary.

Was it your doing that Lux has a german name for her ultimate?
Komm gibĀ“s zu :3


Nope, that was Shurelia's idea and choice. At some point one of her skills was called "Luminance Fraeulein" or similar... but that was taken out. I was only asked how to spell "Finales Funkeln" that's it =)

I would love some tips about getting into the Gaming Industry (for animation or modeling, maby both is thats possable); im currently a student about to enter community collage.


1. Work hard
2. Love what you're doing
3. Study other professionals' reels. If they are in the industry, that's how good you have to be.
4. Work on a game mod in your field to show us you can do good game animations/models
5. For animation: buy the book "animators survival kit"
6. Make a great reel that showcases your best work
7. Take internships and work with a good attitude

And don't forget to have fun. We work too hard and too long not to enjoy it =)
