UPDATE (5/27): Because of all the love for this skin, I decided to give the splash art some more justice as I spent less than a week on the original. The new splash art has taken me around 2.5 weeks instead. I hope you enjoy it.

Changes:
-More detail, more lights, more shininess!
-You can no longer see his eyes.
-The lantern is now an armillary sphere. (think the Game of Thrones sun in the opening theme)
-New and improved sigil with more detail and elvish script (it looked the most angelic it me)
-Thresh now has shoulder armor to match Arclight Varus.
-Thresh's boots actually have detail now.
-The scythe looks less derptastic.

INFO

Hi there, I'm Relogged or on Reddit, known as Kluukie. I posted my concept for a "holy" version of Thresh on reddit today and got a lot of positive feedback, so I thought I would create an official thread in the LoL forums to bring more of Riot's attention. I loved Artsed Voidborn Fizz and since that became a reality due to support on the forums, I thought I might give it a shot.

CONTEXT AND IDEAS

I love Thresh. While I love my Championship Thresh skin, I thought he could have a more thematic skin (not really digging Deep Sea Thresh). After searching around the internet to see what ideas people already had for Thresh skins, I noticed that most of them are horror themed; which is fitting. But I thought what if Thresh gathered souls for salvation rather than damnation.

And before you mention it, yes, it does look like the angels from Diablo, because that is where I took inspiration from. I always loved the design of those angels and I thought it would be a cool thing to try to emulate for Thresh.

While people think Thresh should be evil and his skin should reflect that, keep in mind that skins are flexible and a way to explore different concepts and ideas for that champion. In this case, like with Justicar Syndra or Arclight Varus, this is what Thresh would be if he worked for "the good guys". Doesn't mean he can't relish and enjoy everyone dying around him though. He just plays on a different team.

UPDATE: CUSTOM SKIN

I have had many requests for me to release this as a custom skin. I am currently working on that. So far I have been able to change the textures on my Championship Thresh skin, however, as it only works for that skin and is a very unavialble skin, I need to figure out a better way to go about it so everyone that wants to use it can. I told myself I did not want this to be just another retexture, so atm I am trying modify Thresh's model and essentially build a skin from the ground up. It's a lot of work but if I do this I want it to be the best.

Love, Relogged. <3

OTHER

If you like this I invited you to look at what few things I have on my deviantArt. I made a Mafia Fizz skin a while ago but it never took off the way this Thresh skin did.

Fun Fact! I do not own a tablet, so everything I do is done by mouse! :D
