Finally able to finish this character, Leona from League of Legend that I've been working on for so long! It was very challenging for me to choose this character to model. I need to thanks a few people that has been very helpful for this project, my friend, Maxx Tan Loiza Chen and all my students who gave me the inspirations to work on it.
Original concept by Loiza Chen:
This is his fan page:
I don't know what makes Riot(the owner of league of legends) to bring out a costum made skin :/ there was example! As far as i can tell there was a guy sunnykoda.deviantart.com/art/M… who made a (i bet) Gurren Lagann referenced skin concept, just for fun or for a competition, but after around a year they (Riot) made it real the-bravo-ray.deviantart.com/a… So this is a really purchasable skin.
So apparently they release it if it has some kind of reference to other famous or liked theme: boobs (jk), alien versus predator, animes, pacific rim,prates, maho shoujo etc. Of course from obvious budget reasons xD
Ps.: sorry for the long reply!
seems a real figure, I'd love a popstar Leona skin
(sry for my bad english > <)
But maybe a little more heavy armor will suit better with her style.
Btw, your concept is really nice and charming, thanks for doing that.
Bye bye ~
Thank you, i understand that heavier armor might make her looks good but i must respect the original artist who's created the 2d concept of her. Hope you understand
I do have two issues with it though;
The stiletto heels do not work with this concept. Leona is a warrior, not a stripper.
2nd, the end of the sword looks somewhat inappropriate in the context of the where I usually see shoes like those worn,
I believe the original concept artist is popstar Leona?
Personally I think it's brilliant. Just because someone has hearts and wears pink doesn't make them any less hardcore. Plus, they obviously worked very hard on this absolutely gorgeous model, and the only thing you could think to do is complain about the colour? Really?
All of them are pink and have hearts.
The author designs it that way to make her look elegant and i intend to bring out the elegant-ness within the art provided by him.
