I want the female Zaunite to kick-ass with all kinds of gadgets & perhaps a cyborg eye.

Give her an ult like Lux's mixed with Samus' Final Smash in Brawl (directable, sustained beam that can slowly shift direction)... albeit weaker and shorter-ranged.

I think I read somewhere that they've tested sustained beamy things like that and it had issues, due to connectivity and latency.

I could be wrong, though.

Is your job to model champions? And what else do you do?

I want to have something to do with art, but I don't know if I want to do graphic art/pencil paper art or 3D art.

The joke MUST somehow reference City Escape.

Why was Master Yi's beard removed? In my opinion, it was as iconic as his sword-boots.

Hey Dextii, I model the champions, paint their textures, and help solve art related bugs sometimes. When I have spare time I help with champion team, and skin team. I concept (draw) champion ideas and skins from time to time as well. Sometimes I get to help with cinematics or merch development. I love my job

Do you have some help from artist(pencil one, guys like Ironstylus) ?

Do they give you some 2D model of the champion you have to model in 3D ?

Cool!

Do you happen to have a recording of the speed sculpting for Master Yi? It'd be awesome to see the work put into that model, hehe.

Yeah that is pretty much how it goes. Ironstylus and I sit right next to eachother, eat lunch together, and go for long walks on the beach. He will make a concept, and I will model it. Lately though we have been swapping tasks. He has been helping out with modeling and I have been drawing.
