Nicely done. Love the attention to detailing in the clothing and the contrast of the simpler smoother shapes of her body. Her hair feels out of place I find. But that's just me. Keep up the amazing sculpt work!

Nice model! :D

But the best thing about this for me personally, and please don't take this wrong, is seeing that her boots look a bit weird in certain angles (straight front and back, and the last 7/8), even though the boots clearly have a nice shape to them overall.
The thing is: this made me realise that the problems I was facing with modelling combat boots for a character once, were NOT the model itself that was off, but simply that the view angles (and/or orthographic perspective) made them look weird!
I kept thinking: "They look good from this angle, but off from this angle... There must be something wrong with my shape!" and I kept fiddling to get those boots "right" and it drove me crazy! So I ended up never getting them to a point where I was happy with them, and eventually I just gave up, disliking what I had made...
So, thanks for the insight! :)

thanks!

agree on boots, they look kinda weird here, but I really hope it will fix itself once I pose this character
legs are parallel to each other for modeling purposes, but they do look awkward, yeah

I'm sure it will look awesome once posed! :)

1. Katarina has green eyes.
2. Katarina has x3 longer hair.
3. Katarina has way skinnier legs.
4. Katarina doesn't have such a huge cleavage
5. Her belts are lower than that.

I got no idea why people keep saying "omg so amazing, so Kat so omg" while there's so many errors. Oh and don't forget the part with her having 2 blades on the back and 2 blades on the thighs. And her boots have a way smaller heel. To a point of nearly not existing. 

*sigh* why do people keep doing Kat so drastically wrong. She's not even that complicated in appearance to make.

There no point in making an identical katarina....I mean for christ sake, those are not "errors" it is simply his take on it ;  and a great one I must say. Do you go see every spider-man movie, point out the costume and say that its not the original one?

Anyway Great Work slipgatecentral, unlike this idiotic twat, I really like your take on it and I wouldn't change a single thing.

Long hair, Scar, Green eyes. No high heels = Katarina.

Remove 1 = Not Katarina. End of discussion. Seriously.

There's specific remarks that make the champion her. If they are not there, then it's not her. Even the tattoo is missing, but I can pretend it's Okay. Cause in some versions of LoL it's missing cause of culture. 

P.S Eyes and hair arent costume. Peter Parker is the same in all. A skinny white boy with brown hair and brow eyes. Both movies and comics and cartoons.

Psst ! Nick Fury wasnt black in the first comics !  (and, because i see hairs are importantfor you, he's not bald and don have beard) What a shaaaaame for the Marvel's films !

Mate. Marven have went to hell ages ago. So I won't speak about them. And about your other replies. You can use examples as much as you want. I simply don't care, about these other characters or champions and know nothing, about them. SO I do NOT bother commenting. If they are done wrong, then you should speak about it. I care only for Katarina.

oh, and don't get me started on her weapons, lol. Original design has too many blades she never used in combat. Felt like I could get rid of them.
TheKapy's avatar
She uses all of them, the issue is the poor gameplay kit. Lore wise, she has broken sword too many time sand replaced them with the ones which were on her back or waist... but you forgot to go "x10 the cleavage" part on the corset :3

it's my personal take on katarina design
wasn't really trying to nail 100% likeness

This person claims to be a Katarina expert but doesn't know that shes into garen, how sad. 
Your picture looks amazing! I hope you win the contest, what program did you use for this?
TheKapy's avatar
Katarina isnt into Garen. Lore doesn't point her out as if she was. That was a joke made by a Rioter "Dating" app, which literally said I'm in love with MF and TF with the same answers. And I got a huge disgust towards both of them. Hey I guess that "Dating app" which is your prove, actually points who you dislike, not who you like. Fun !

Learn her lore, then speak to me.

No this is actually in game lore, and in game lines, how sad you're blind. And this dating app you talk about isn't my proving ground. I'm using in game lines and in game lore. 
Soooooo.... I'm going to guess you're a troll account since you're a new account. I do know her lore, you don't sadly. "Katarina Guru" what a sad title.
TheKapy's avatar
As long as the eyes arent green and the hair isnt long. Then it's not Katarina and the title should be changed to a "Character based on Katarina" rather than "Katarina". Simple as that. You're basically removing what makes her Katarina in the apperance the first place and it ends up NOT Katarina.

I’d like to see you do better tbh. You should improve your attitude when giving critique good sir, no one will accept it when you’re sounding like a jerk.

Learn to read and accept legit critic
