  • I'm probably the only one looking for it, but seeing a Veigar redesign would be cool. I think he's the less yordle looking yordle, and the Omega Squad skin really makes me dream of a better evil fur-ball. I really admire your LoL works, such a big inspiration! If you ever wondered what champ to rework next I think Veigar is a good candidate :,)

  • 6:54 Fiddlesticks is probably my favorite character, downright bone-chilling in lore, and voiced by Kellen Goff, the voice of Funtime Freddy, the man is very talented, especially with horror characters, they sound sadistic and intimidating, which as a horror fan, I love.

  • Just a suggestion if you ever want to tweak the Camille skin a little more, why not use tentacles as her hooks instead of chains? Just to keep with the eldritch theme. But, in any case, your design are amazing as usual. 👌

  • Music is amazing too

  • My resultions for 2021 are >Learning shading >Learning how to operate with watercolor brushes As of now I'm somewhat confident with sketches, shilouettes and coming up with designs, but when it comes to adding colors and depth I'm usually at loss. I've always loved drawing but I've never invested much time into "learning the ropes" properly, seeing these skins being developed this well was both impressive and a moral slap to my face as in "yo, you can do things like these if you apply a bit more, why are you not doing them?". Hence why I want to develop these skills, my drawings (it's not art, far from being considered as such) deserve better from me and I want to show myself that I can do if I apply.

  • You're making a League skin, no harassment of a female partner nor detached vertebrae, 0 authenticity.

  • My only issue is the last one isn’t recognizable as Tahm Kench and clarity is insanely important for skins. They need to look like the character so in big team fights with massive amounts of abilities and characters you can pick out who is wh, Tahm kind a looks like a couple other champions here which wouldn’t be good.

  • If you need suggestions on what to add to the skin line, here are a few ideas -Yorick (his kit would synergize with the eldritch horror theme very well IMO) -Lissandra (gave me similar vibes cause of her head shape) -Kayn -Malzahar (If you can't tell, I like eldritch horror and minions)
