Eclipse Leona by sunnykoda Eclipse Leona by sunnykoda
Ironstylus recently asked the LoL community what they imagined an 'Eclipse Leona' skin would look like: na.leagueoflegends.com/board/s…

I replied with a description but thought I would produce a concept when I had the time, so here it is! B/W with colour for special effects.

I think about the 'eclipse' representing a dark reality that has broken her trust in the Iron Solari. Her helm covers her eyes as the black truth shades her from the once blinding light of her faith.

UPDATE: Ironstylus and many other fans have commented on the design on the LoL GD: na.leagueoflegends.com/board/s…

UPDATE 2: People seem to love this concept - Thanks so much! I've stuffed in the refined Helmet and Sword designs from the GD thread so it's all in one place.

UPDATE 3: I was lucky enough to actually get to chat with Ironstylus one on one about this skin concept! Ultimately it may never be a skin (unless I end up working for Riot full time and just push it day after day after day) but I was excited to know that he found it very *inspiring*. All I can say is the future is uncertain and exciting!

UPDATE 4: Just started playing Dark Souls. PRAISE THE SUN!

what about just a whole mask covering the whole face....like it looks more sinister....i dunno x) this is awesome though.

Too bad Riot's not too accepting with designs D:

Thanks! Some love it, some hate it. She is a pretty lady so I understand. Now if I were to remake this I'd make it even more vicious, like a face-hugger.

Love this concept!!

I wonder...I think if you kept her hair the original color, or made it reflect the dull orange you have highlighting her, it may turn out even better.  :)

Yeah I agree, this was supposed to be just a greyscale sketch, but I got excited and started adding glowies.

Good luck running with that metal circle between her legs. XD But other than that it looks really awesome. Orange/ gold and black always looks good together. :3

There is a heap of problems with this design looking back, but it was only ever a first pass - I just got something so right with it people are still excited about it 3 years later!
