@IronStylus

So I'm just gonna quote this out from your 5th post here.

Skarner isn't as hard as you might think. You can make him into pretty much anything, from a bug, to a lobster, to a robot. Not sure the particulars as to why he hasn't gotten a skin yet, though.


Does this mean that BattleCast Skarner is getting some attention/thoughts? The teaser during BattleCast Cho'Gath's splash art still keeps me on my seat waiting for a mecha-scorpion.

I didn't put a helmet on this one, but I gave some headdress stuff to it. And yeah, I wen't more cloth.


I'm gonna take a stab at this.

Might it be something to do with a pre-moonlady Diana? Something like Sun Goddess Karma?

Oh, that's a really great question. Skarner isn't as hard as you might think. You can make him into pretty much anything, from a bug, to a lobster, to a robot. Not sure the particulars as to why he hasn't gotten a skin yet, though.

Hmm, actually it's sort of multifaceted. Because there's champions who are hard to make skins for logistically (lot's of assets/models/particles/etc to make), conceptually (base lacks large silhouette landmarks, "big hook", etc), or technically (older champions, outdated rigs, etc).

So, here's a list of what just comes to mind for various reasons:

Evelynn - Technical.; Outdated model/rig/animations/etc
Fiora - Conceptual. Lacking large visual landmarks, she's mostly just a lady in a costume.
Hiemerdinger - Technical. Mostly, outdated.. everything.
Lissandra - Logistical. Holy ****, so many particles! All of those particles are separate models with seperate, and possibly, custom animations on them.
LeBlanc - Conceptual. She's actually one our most standard of standard human females.
Malphite - Technical. Not so much unusable rig, but still has it's challenges.
Master Yi - Technical. Pizza feet...
Rumble - Technical and logistical. As stated.
Shyvanna - Logistical. Basically two champions in one.
Sion - Technical. Yikes..
Sivir - Technical. Outdated model/rig/animations/particles.. So yeah, rework first.
Swain - Technical. Outdated assets, basically also two champions.
Taric - Technically outrageous. Outdated assets.
Teemo - Existential. Every subsequent skin we make for him unlocks another gateway to hell.
Twitch - Technical. Very outdated assets, he's actually missing legs I think.
Udyr - Technical and Logistical. Fairly outdated, but pretty much 4 different champions depending on complexity.
Varus - Conceptual. Dude with a bow and purple pants.
Xerath - Logistical. Piles of particle work and strange rig voodoo I have no idea how to even describe.
Zac - Conceptually and logistically. Virtually no differentiated landmarks on skins, pretty much all texture or animation behaviors can be leveraged.
Zilean - Outdate assets, but not really an animation nightmare. He floats.
Zyra - Conceptually and logistically. On her body, not a ton of distinquishing landmarks. All of her plants require new models and new animations.

REMINDER! The above list doesn't mean these champions a) will not have a skin for them any time soon b) are huge challenges to overcome c) don't already have stuff in the works despite challenges listed. This isn't a blacklist, this is just what comes to my mind when I think of champions we've had challenges with. Each of these challenges can be solved in it's own particular way. Things are solved sometimes in just updating the assets, like in the case of Tyrant Swain or Battlecast Urgot, or sometimes with a complete rebuild like any relaunch/VU we make. Very much depends on the champion and what we have to work with.


why no love for yorick in skins?
