Deep Terror Kha'zix concept [League of Legends]

4K Favourites
Hey guys,

Had a request a while ago to make a sea monster themed skin concept for Kha'zix, we decided to give him a bit of a lobster look and keep his natural spookiness. This one was animated to give you an idea of the stealth ability in this skin as well :). You can find the animation here:…

All comments and critique welcome :)

Excellent quality. The coulors really shines through with the blue torso and the orange claws and face details. The exo on the legs gives it a very bug/stalker like appearance and overall its nice to work ones imagination as how he evolved state would appear. Espacially the detail on the leg is good.
But the name is DEEP TERROR Kha'zix and the illustration, despite its quality, does not appear like something from the sea. The background is lovely dynamic, with the unfortunate of making it NOT appearing as if Kha is underwater. (Just think how the image would appear with another name. No body would say it looked more like a deep sea creature than, for an example rift, sky, space,..... Kha.
Overall lovely work, though be careful with the posture. We see the claw. the leg, but the face could be more outwards and we can't see most of the torso because of the claw.

as soon as you look at this picture it hits you hard with energy, the entire image is puling with it. the blending of color works beautifully with the lighting and background. while i will say that the leg proportion confused me at first the immense detail of the picture distracts you from it mostly, though to me it seems that one leg papers to be larger than the other around the thigh area, but i easily over look this as i might just be a tad nitpicky but the rest of the image is mapped out perfectly. over all i would label this as another worthwhile beautiful image in deviant arts treasure chest of amazing work.

The moment I saw this in my news feed, left me chills while recovering from the ranked matches from yesterday. The predator hunting for prey, that smile of desire in his eyes really shocks you into noticing his presence. I can certainly say this is just remarkable to look at, the detail put on Kha Zix himself sifting through the fields of justice at remarkable speed really puts a thought on what we should do against such a champion. Despite his nerfs he is still a monster if you let him prey upon you.

Aside from my remarks, the splash art is great and while we can say it's original for Kha'Zix it is certainly put to be with Deep Terror Thresh as we obviously know, however adding the emphasize on his claws, face, wings really brings out his whole kit in which I appreciate.

The technique used is great I mean the surrounding background shows Kha'Zix in action and on the hunt to find new prey to feast upon in which sets his lore well enough.

The Impact is just overwhelming enough as it is for even myself.

The Vision was already explained in my first paragraph.

In the end, this was very well done and I look forward to seeing more work from this artist.

Not only does this give Kha'Zix's body concept, of many joints, and thick skin. It re-creates the whole idea of an overgrown bug? It gives him that abyssal look; maybe when he lands from E, he splashes water everywhere? Who knows, I love how this gives you the ideas of what his powers look like, and how they will animate. I would love to see him in his evolved R form, as this gives him the dangerous look of a hunter who stealths, like the Stone Fish, to which says still, to hunt it's prey. And, isn't that what makes Kha'Zix? His bulky multi-color shell? You provided all what makes Kha'Zix in this picture...originality.

Alright , this is overall a great result ! I do get the Kha'Zix hype and the sea creature theme is really interesting . I absolutely love the contrast of the colors you chose to use . The brushes you used did great to give the shell 'like' texture . I like the background as well , cause it helps focus on the model a bit more . I find interesting the choice of anemones for the base of his wings . The lobster claws fit perfectly with his kit . The one thing I don't quite get , since this is a sea creature theme , are the legs . I feel more of a mechanic vibe and I think they lack some variety in terms of coloring . The proportions are great though since Kha needs strong and big legs to make the powerful Leap (Skill from the game) . So basically that's all !

Awesome. I haven't been playing League for long, but Kha'Zix is my favorite so far.

Beautiful work!! Altough I see this more as a Death Blossom Skin than deep sea terror. :)
