Hey GD,

Just figured I'd post this idea I had for a new Zyra skin. She's my main champion, and as she hasn't had a skin since her launch, I figured I'd get on with imagining one for her. As a 3D Artist, I may end up modeling this myself, but I figured I'd put the idea out there to see if it garners interest beforehand.

Anyway, to get down to it:

The concept here is that Zyra would be formed from Graveyard soil, wrapped in a covering of Bone and dark green, Leafy Vines to keep everything packed into shape, with a giant Worm or two moving through her at all times. (See my sketches for clarity)

Q - Bone Spikes or Grasping Hands

W - A small headstone with a faint glow.

E - A pack of leaping worms that arc through the soil.

R - A collection of Bones, Arms, or Worms, or all of the above, centered on a small Obelisk.

Melee Plant - A sawtooth bone on a spinal cord, with vines clinging to the cord.

Ranged Plant - An animal skull that shoots bone shards, again semi-wrapped in vines.

Passive - Zyra shifts into a swirl of bones and soil, topped with a large dragon skull, with a patch of vine leaves on the mound below. Upon firing her shot, the soil collapses into a heap, with minor bone shafts sticking out of the surface.

EDIT: Wow! Didn't expect the 3 AM response to be so ecstatic! I'll present it to the crowds tomorrow, and hopefully get some more critique or give some enjoyment. Cheers!

EDIT: Added the image directly to my post as an attachment.

EDIT: Holy hell!! 100+ Upvotes!? Thanks guys! I'm glad you like it. I added some recent thoughts to the various abilities, and hopefully I'll be able to re-sketch some of it in the next couple days, or add to my old sketches for clarity. Cheers!

UPDATE: Added another little teaser sketch, planning a few more tonight or tomorrow. Just some musings on the Passive.

UPDATE: Added a second teaser for the night.

BIG UPDATE: Looks like Riot must have liked the idea... because HERE IT IS!
