I helped concept Woad King Darius, so I couldn't resist doing this one

Woad Queen Diana, suggested by Kaelath The Red!

(Another rough, loose sketch -- I'm experimenting with different styles, trying to find which will allow me the best balance of quantity and quality)

What about Karma in light armor?

@IronStylus, you two should collaborate on such a thing. c;

HOLY BALLZ!!!! This is amazing and I couldn't throw money at my screen fast enough for a skin like that. Strait up Red Sonja style there.

I have been tossing around some concepts sketches for a Sun Goddess Quinn that uses a quetzalcoatl instead of a bird of prey. After looking for reference material for inspiration on the Aztec style armors, weapons, etc for Quinn I came across the sword called "maquahuitl" and thought that a natural choice for the Sun Goddess skin series is Leona. With that sword and plenty of designs to pull from for a shield the Sun Goddess Leona skin seems like a great fit.

Beyond that I figure that other plausible skins would be Wild West Lucian, Blacksmith Taric, Dino Rider Sejuani, Skunk or Armadillo Teemo, Special Forces Ashe or Varus, Native American Udyr, Outback Sivir, Full Metal Rumble, Caveman Olaf, Woad King Nasus, and Cactus Zyra.

So many concepts, so little time to make them a reality :-S

PS
How is Peter Griffin's dance to Surfin' Bird not a dance for any champion in this game? lol

So Talohmiir suggested Salamander Fizz (like the animal), but I couldn't help but take it in a sliiiightly different direction

Also, a while back, Xelandra asked about my process for these sketches, so I saved out a quick step by step

(For the last two steps I did a little touch up with painting and blend layers like Soft Light and Multiply, but most of the heavy lifting was done using 'Gradient Map' Adjustment Layers, which are AWESOME. If you don't use them, I'd suggest looking up tutorials on how they work. Super useful tool.)

Enjoy!
