I downloaded both after I trusted you about the no-malware policy you have and they look awesome!
Noir Rift looks a lot better, I don't like the teemo on Sandy Reach Rift nor that you did nothing to trees.

Suggestion: Void Rift!

Soooo...... how long I have to wait till Riot realize this is the next step they need to take for their in game cosmetic customization?

It's a win/win scenario since they don't have to change gameplay at all yet give SR a completely makeover than make it feel fresh and new.

Summoner Rift Suggestion: Techno Organic Rift to go with the plethora of mech skins we have now.

This is a very different direction from the style of the game, I like the color scheme (reminds me of the Harrowing Map mixed with Night Elf colors) but the pixel in pixel detail is a bit harsh for my eyes. It would be neat to see the colors integrated into the map textures. The increase in contrast and saturation will need to be metered to reflect the visual important of elements on the map. The ground is one of the areas of rest in our visual space which helps champions read against it.

I'd recommend picking an area of the map (single screen shot worth) you like and painting up the textures in that region to have a higher resolution while attempting to maintain a style consistent to League. Overlaying a texture and tinting colors is a way to add artificial detail to a scene but that can be inconsistent with the underlying visual direction. Learning to place your details in the places that your eye will enjoy most while maintaining a strong visual hierarchy takes a lot of self control and I tend to reference historic painters, such as Edgar Payne, to help direct my hand.

I look forward to seeing your future mods.

peace,

Strange how he can whip out a high quality skin, yet we're still waiting on any official ones from riot :P

Yurixy, may I ask; how long are you working on such a single map skin ?

I'm loving every single bit of this and would pay RP for this if I could. I really appreciate what you are doing here, good stuff. If only could someone replace the trees on the Beach skin to Palm Trees or something, I know you are having trouble with that as you don't change models - I'm just saying.

Looking forward to new map skins you'll be making, I hope there are many yet to come !

Compacted thread, now it occupies a lot less space.

Hello. I'm glad you liked my skins.
About the duration... hm... depending on the skin varies a lot, but I can say in the average about a week, working around 3 hours per day. On weekends I work faster.
Much time is lost applying on SIU each time and launching a custom game every time I want to test it, though.
For champion skins, is a lot more faster, something about 1 to 3 days should be enough.

It would be really awesome if you managed to pull off a dance dance revolution summoners rift.

With neon arrows on the paths with different colors or something. I would definitely enhance my Arcade Sona experience

Feedback on the beach map: Looks good but maybe make the sand a bit darker, the chat's a bit hard to read.

For future maps you should try your hand at an "acid trip" map. Make it have more rainbows than fifty Lux's having an orgy.
Another idea is an industrial map. Try to texture anything you can to be metallic while making the paths in lanes roads. Would be a brown n bloom'/gray type of affair.
What else... I'd like to see a SR version of your Gangplank map
One last idea could be whitewashed. Would be SR but completely white, patterns would remain.

The above poster also gave me an idea, make everything like an old video game. Large, pixelated and colorful.

Next map I'm working will have a HD and SD version.
I'm also thinking about creating a SD version of Noir Rift.
