Zed - the Master of Shadows!

Now that Zed is out I can share with you some of the concept art that went into his creation.

This image is a turn around of the character, which is created towards the end of a Champion design to inform production on key details of the character.
A lot of iteration is involved in getting to this stage which is what I will post next!

More soon! All the Best!

i thinh it should have claws to be a void version of him instead of blades

would have been so much better if he was actually with these colours instead of the red

Brilliant work, like how you have blended the traditional aspects of the ninja with the fantasy.

Tbh I really prefer this one. :P
I LOVE red, and the red-black combination of the current Zed rocks, but this concept is more... Shadowy and edgy.
Green and purple remind me more of shadows than pure red.
His lightning skin is a work of art, though <3

One of my favorite champs and the one I got the best with, but I haven't been using him since I started to try getting decent/good at a lot of different champions. I love Zed's theme, he was an instabuy for me.
