I wanted to have a go at re-designing Irelia. From my reading of her background, I felt that the most important points to note were:

  • she's from Ionia, which aesthetically has many similarities to our real-world Far East
  • she's Captain of the Guard, so she should have an air of nobility or authority
  • she got her blade-levitation powers only after being narrowly saved from a Noxian necromantic death.

Also, gameplay-wise, we know she's quite tanky (even if it's because of her health gain), but also has a dash, so she's got to look somewhat mobile, while still being armored.

I did a painting of how I envisioned her to look, interpreting her near-death experience as having a greater effect on her, making her more other-worldly. If there's a positive response, I'd love to try my hand at bringing her to life in 3D.

Attached a smallish version.

I like this interpretation. It would make quite a nice skin. I'm curious as to what the orb she's levitating is...would it be part of her weapon?

A 3D version would be very cool.

Thanks for commenting! Yeah, the current Irelia design has an orb surrounded by four blades that separate and re-attach to format different shapes. I wanted to keep that.
