Even Viktor I feel has a little too much human going on with him. Not enough enhancements and not nearly chunky enough. I've like to sell that fantasy even more! Make him a real match, something pervertedly over the top.
Wait, I like how he looks.

I like that kind of art style, but I feel like Viktor's fine the way he is. His humanity, even after his transformation, is what endears him to me. It'd make for a great skin, but changing his base skin would seem wrong to me. There's nothing wrong with him as he is visually.

Not implying that you're going to, but I felt like I had to say it.
No, not that grotesque. Viktor's human silhouette is necessary, but I feel it could be a little more impactful.

I'd rather you guys stop recreating all the characters I like thank you very much. Maybe do a skin to show the chunkiness you want but don't do another remake. All he needs is the passive enhancements and he'll be in tip top shape (he's already a great champ, just needs QoL).

Sleek, sort of hotshot, and more along the lines of the goden age of flight.

Zaun feels very haphazard, more psychopathic. I feel that maybe a more cool and collected Asami Sato sort of character would fit nicely into the jetpack/ace flyer zone than a mad scientist from Zaun, but that's just me! I think there's a lot of opportunity in Zaun, but my inclination is to turn that up to an eleven, embrace the complete crazy, and use the arsenal of story telling elements and mechanics that Zaun has to offer in all it's zaniness.
Female Dr. Octavius came to mind when you were describing Zaun scientists. Could have a Hextech back pack with mecha-magical limbs etc, Would include Lab coat goggles and quite possibly exploding beakers of weaponized DOOOOOOOM!

As a Viktor fan, I must say...this sounds freaking awesome. I totally agree that Viktor is a bit sleek for a Zaunite. I mean, for a dude who turns himself into a machine there is way too much human about him. What's the point in replacing your piddling weak human fleshy bits if you don't go above and beyond with your shiny new metal bits of doom? If Viktor could be awesome and efficient with two arms, think of him with four shiny arms of metal doom! Or twelve! Or like, 3 heads?! GAAAH, SO MANY OPTIONS!

JOIN THE GLORIOUS EVOLUTION!

Edit: As a non-insane sidenote, a similar mechanic to Kha's changing model with his evolutions would be interesting to see as maybe a skin for Viktor depending on what he upgrades his item to.
