I didn't know that there was a Trundle speed sculpt already, it's awesome, like a real 3d art spotlight,

I don't know if this thread was intend to ask but, what brushes do you usually use more when you are sculpting a champ?

hope to see more in the future if it's posible, it's always welcome


Yeah, I hope to do more in the future, sometimes zbrush breaks when recording movies, you have to be kind of meticulous about saving and the strain it puts on your system.
The main brushes I use in zbrush are the Clay brush, Trim Dynamic, Dam Standard, Standard, Move, and High polish. I would say those are the main brushes I use most consistently.

Here are some early explorations of Vi. I had this idea of making her a roller derby chick, with a really tough girl attitude. That element I think got carried through to the final character. The second image is from a discussion in which I was asked to make Vi a bit younger, like a street urchin of Piltover, who found these gloves and became a badass. The final direction that is in the game now is the best incarnation imo. But it's fun to look back sometimes.

that second one of the younger Vi reminds me of Torchlight.

Why did you guys get rid of the roller skates out of curiosity? Think it's cool personally.

I don't think it's that sad. I wanted to post Art and Feedback because I feel like this little nook of the forums gets a bit more real talk. It's true that I would probably get more views in GD, but I think that when people look in Art and Feedback, there is a genuine interest in the development of Lol, which I really really like.

SO DO I!!. But in hindsight I dunno, I think it fought with the main theme of Vi which is the attitude and the gloves. That is a thematic package that is easy to wrap heads around. Attitude, Gloves, and Roller Skates? Not so much. The roller skates are a bit superfluous. In my opinion, good character design is very minimalist. Sure you can add a few things here and there to add depth to the character, but for video games, each character is basically the avatar or symbol of a specific power type or combat style. We want that power and ability read to be very clear and understood to the players. Adding roller skates to Vi's design added a layer of complexity that wasn't really needed. Plus it also gives us the intellectual space to make a dedicated Roller Skate Champion someday.

I love the third iteration on Soraka's horns; looks like Rhino LeBlanc. D:

P.S.: Damn, now we need a rollerskating champion.
