Thanks for finally using some of the beautiful foreign splashes (cough use the sivir ones, there great imo) but I have a question. When you do the female splashes, do you use a live model? Lately some of the female splashes have had terrible proportions, angles, etc. The concept is fine, armor/costumes look good but idk why, the artists seem to break the female figure literally. It's painful :/ I'm not talking about huge breasts, or long legs for days, barely there clothes (it's vg, what can you do about it) but, for example, the new base splash for Caitlyn. If you look at the placement of her hips to her legs it's horribly off. Either it looks like both legs are coming out of the same place on her body or her back leg should be up and front leg down (since her hips are towards the viewer). I tried to get over the base Sivir-breaking-her-ankle splash pose or the no-internal-organs Winter Sivir splash which you could (and people have) said 'it's a video game, there's no gravity' or 'she's just wearing a really tight corset' (ps the Victorians could barely breathe let alone throw a huge boomrang but w.e lol). But this...it's just so terrible I really love you guys but can you at least move her legs a little apart so it looks correct? I doubt this will happen at all but it's worth a shot...no pun intended. Really.

But when they apply it to a still picture, it becomes blatant and egregious. I don't understand why Riot loves doing it to the point where they are called out all the time, but never yield.

You guys said here -> http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.co...-coming-to-pbe

"What if I don't like X splash?
Let us know! The goal here is to improve, not detract"

Time for some feedback here since I don't have a PBE account! (more like, opinions no one agrees with)

- Noxus Hunter Anivia: no more Morello bird Also consider a name change for that one.

- Chosen Master Yi: This one is a bit small but important. I prefer the white-ish feel of the original splash, but the new one looks a bit "rusty" instead of a proper gold feel. A small color fix would make it loads better (make it brighter and whiter?).

- Glacial Olaf: This is, in my opinion, the biggest offender. His main weapons, axes, received a downgrade of details, his epic beard is hidden, so is most of his armor, and he doesn't have the epic frosty/glacial aura in his previous splash. The splash feels like the first, rejected Riven splash art. Please give this one a priority to consider. I really strongly prefer the Glacial Olaf now than the new one.

The 4.13 patch notes say that 33 splash arts were changed, but doesn't say which ones. So: what are all the skins that changed?

I know you recently updated tons of splash arts and it might be too late i really want to update unmasked Kayle's art work. Live one : http://www.leagueoflegendsskins.com/...sh/Kayle_3.jpg
In my opinion it looks very plain and her armor looks rusty and matte but in this splash art (which i really like) : http://www.leaguesplash.com/wp-conte.../09/Kayle6.jpg
i think it suits her better because in the original art work her armor is shiny and the background makes it look like shes very godly and powerful but in the live unmasked Kayle it doesn't take the bright background. The splash art i really like includes everything and i'm sure some of the summoners will enjoy it too!

WTF happened to Mantheon (Ruthless Pantheon)?! He looks like he was drugged and dragged to Ezreal's stylist!! Wth is ruthless about freshly waxed thighs and calves?! They look like they belong to Taric, all smooth and unmuscle-y!! What happened to his nips, did they pluck those right out?! I mean, Panth deserves some art rework and VU to match that glorious Dragonslayer splash, but good god in heaven, this is a step back, and for Mantheon no less!

Also, who is that wrinkly old fart in Blast zone heimer...cause fugly doesn't even begin to describe it...Blast zone Heimer was supposed to be funny and humorous...so why does that splash make me want to rip out my corneas as opposed to laugh hysterically?
