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!
