I was looking at her portrait a little closer, and i gotta say, her hair style is very sexy, i just wish it was more noticeable.

EDIT: Maybe in her skin?

I'm liking the purple hair on her. It'll probably be easy to see from the back side in-game.

Because every champ with a crossbow is Vayne. You know, since Twitch plays identically to her.

That said, I wouldn't mind seeing Teemo getting eaten by Cho'Gath.

I've thought about this, and the thing is, she is the Demacian version of an assassin. What does this mean? I think it means she's less of the assassin that stealthily sneaks in and kills silently and more like, say, a commando or special ops person. Her method of assassination is dropping in and then getting rid of anyone on the way to the target.

I don't really like it.

Perhaps it is a problem of expectations, but with Quinn being portrayed as a thoughtful, introspective, person who eschews the generally strict and lock-step Demacian outlook and displays a willingness to look beyond it, I must say I was expecting a much more realistic, 'down-to-earth' style of her (Spellthief Lux skin probably being the closest similar example that I can think of off-hand). The imagery evoked here is at best an over-designed Athena and at worst Jarvan's creepy twin sister. (She also doesn't look particularly feminine, which I don't mean as criticism or praise, just an observation that I find interesting given the many arguments there has been on the forums.)

I don't want to sound entirely negative, because there are a lot of really cool little details I can point to and say I honestly like, such as the raised arm guard/perch and the interesting mantle/cape. But to me the key word here is "over-designed." Every aspect of her from the bird to the armor to the weapon screams to me of you, IronStylus, of just trying to out-Leona Leona. (Do not infer from this that I think Leona is a bad design, however.)

Maybe it will click with me once I see her in-game and try out her kit, but as for now, well, her design just seems to try way too hard for it to pique my interest. I don't intend to start a hate-train by any means and hope this can be viewed as the honest opinion and criticism that it is intended to be.
A high ranked Demacian looking "down-to-earth"? How does that make sense? I would love to see a skin of her more "down-to-earth", but that's the only way I could see it making sense.

She does look kinda like a dude. I think the armor is almost TOO overkill (and I'm a pretty big fan of Leona's armor), especially for an archer (or...crossbow-er). Then again, I'm not really sure what her kit is about so maybe it will match-up a bit better with her appearance.

Valor looks absolutely incredible, though.

Teemo would be his tongue like alien style, His q would be chogath shooting teemo out with teemo shooting his poison darts, his r would dropping teemo out like thresh lantern and anyone who attacks it will be pulled to him and eaten

To be fair, I get it. Demacia is supposed to be prototypical Medieval Europe reminiscent of Germany. Blue eyes and fair hair are pretty common there. Although now that I think about it, I'm starting to realize most League champs have blue eyes.
Fiora clearly is a French reference so I'd say Demacia is supposed to be prototypical Medieval Europe reminiscent of France(Fiora), Germany(Lux?), Poland(Xin's skin) and some other countries. Still it doesn't mean everyone has to be blue-eyed.

Awesome! Looks really good.

Honest question: did you get inspiration by Megaman X's Storm Eagle and/or the Hunter class from Ragnarok Online? xD
