So, here's the deal with the Leona skin.

1) I did that design live, with a lot of feedback from the audience, and mentioned that it all could change. We did a few options, (bikini's, pool noodles, one-piece suits, etc) However, it was known that all things may change. That particular concept, while fun to do live, and take live feedback/options, simply wasn't the right fit for the game

2) Things always have to be adjusted and accounted for with game-angle in mind. That means, despite how the concept might have looked straight on, it means nothing if the in-game read is bad. I tried doing a 1-to-1 version of this skin in the 3/4s game view, it didn't look good. Then I did one similar to what you see, but kept it pretty damn yellow, and it wasn't enough. Once we added the blue trim, some other accents and materials, it popped and served what we're all 100% focused on: the in-game read.

I understand the personal taste aspect, but believe me, I was a fan of the original, I was a fan of the intermediary, and I'm a big fan of how it came out.

(It's also going to be super awesome to see done in cosplay!)

The sunglasses are also just for the recall, as a note.

I wish you guys would post this on the website rather than making us look at dug-up stuff on third party sites.

EDIT: Never mind.

Taking your word for it!

We as the playerbase can't judge the entire skin based off of that one small screenshot.
If you say you like how it came out, it likely looks good overall!

It looks great. I really love it. Skins team over-delivered!

The Leona splash, which isn't out yet obviously, melts my heart!
