Why does Headhunter Nidalee look so different to her splash?

Posted this on GD but it was recommended I post here instead. I would love to see a red response.

There's quite a few differences and I think it devalues the detail of the skin quite a lot. I of course realise it's only just been released on the PBE so it's not a full indication of the final product. I'll list the things that stand out to me:

-No netting
-No leg straps
-Hair beads and strand missing from front
-Crotch chain thing not there
-Back vents
-The entire chest piece is a different shape
-Left boot is different
-Small glove details
-Spear handle
-The colours have gone from a nice green to flat grey

Sorry to seem nit-picky as these are rather small details. It is a great looking skin, but I think the splash has some amazing detail and texture that honestly leaves a lot to be desired.

The chest piece is what gets me the most. It has a very 'techy' kind of feel to it in the splash with lots of little segmented pieces layered on top of netting and straps. In game though it looks like one flat metal piece with chunky leg guards hanging off.


Also, I love how the spear is animated in game. Very cool little feature.

My guess is that it is still an unfinished skin, like when they allowed testing of Mafia Graves and Astronautilus before they were finished.

What bothers me, though, is that Splash arts are still anatomically awful
Look at Headhuntress Nidalee's left leg. You can see her hamstring region, indicating that her left leg is 1 foot lower than it should be (Or just completely unconnected to her hip)

I agree with this, riot has been doing a lot of great skins, but this one... just feels really lazy D:

Seeing the splash art I wanted the skin right away (it's even my desktop pic atm) but the model looks nothing like the splash. she's so gray/black and dull in her model instead of the vivid green she should be. The lack of gloves/netting also really bothers me. </3

Maybe they arent quite done with it yet, but I am thinking the same

the splashart is just wow!

BUT maybe its the same thing as Warrios kingdom Xin Zhao. His Splashart is amazing, but model/skin is not good, and feels like his skin is just blue, instead of yellow...

im thinking that its not completely finished yet because it was just added not to long ago and most of the time there are alot of things missing when they add something to the PBE when it comes to Skins. Plus it is actually harder to get all the little details in on the IGM (in game model) because it is smaller and most of the time you wont actually be looking at the model. I dont see the big deal that it doesnt look exactly like the splash cause most of the time the skins in game dont look exactly like the splash arts; some do but most dont. either way its a great skin i love the features it has with the spear and her cougar form is just awesome looking and the little things when she switches like the DNA holograph when she turns back into human form is just so awesome. they did a great job on it overall imo

Small glove details? She has no gloves at all in game even though she's supposed to. It's just her bare hands and long nails.

I hope its unfinished... because as it is now I will not be getting it. The splash is really nice I just hope they at least fix the gray color on her armor. At the very least D:

I hope Riot sees this and changes the skin as according.
