Fuckin riot. Stole you're idea.. The hair hellooooo an md the Asian theme. You'res is a million times better!! Riot fucking sucks sometimes. Like I read, yes they should've asked. Why the fuck are they so stupid? But anyway this is amazing and beautiful and I can't even put into words....
Their version is hideous. I don't like it a bit. Her dress is plain ugly. And ugh.
A very attractive image, though she looks very little like Sona. If the character becomes lost in the skin, then it isn't truly a skin - it's only a drawing.
That said, it's time for some truth-telling. I'm not bashing your art, because it's beautiful, but...
...let's be honest. Riot did not steal your idea. You had the idea to make a Sona in Chinese styled garb and you spent (perhaps) a few hours doing so. Riot had the idea to make a set of themed skins for the upcoming Chinese New Year (in conjunction with the Ahri release, which was a dedication to Korean players following the release of Riot Point purchase options in their region) and spent /weeks/ doing so. You seem to be under the impression that the moment Riot has an idea for a skin, it is suddenly conjured into existence for them to implement. The truth is that every skin must be mapped, drawn and rendered; have particle effects and textures added; then it is tested for glitches, errors, flaws, etc. before finally being released to the public.
You say you posted the original line-art for this in December. Odds are, Riot has been working on this project since Halloween.
Sorry but i don't think this artwork looks like the new skin of Sona... except in the fact that they're chinese inspired ! (is it enough to make you think they look alike ?). It's just my point of view
Isn't usefull to make a double comment to same same thing ^^ ... Then, isn't only my point of view, many people send me a note to know why they make this skin without send me a note or to know if they can make this skin ... Nikasaur send me a mail via Kaep (community manadger EU french) to apologize this little "problem" ^^
I wasn't angry ...i was disappointed by this story :/ can you understand this ?
I took a long time and now again to design my ideas and... see them well taken or strongly influenced intentionally or not ... is not very friendly. I don't want to work to see my drawing theft by others if i'm not cited or if i don't recive gratitude for this.
Ah, marvelous! You've done a wonderful job of coloring in this piece. I love your color scheme, as well as your magical lighting effects and the almost firework-like reflections on her. In particular, I love what you've done with her instrument on the whole, especially the dragon and its flames on the ends.
i can't dislike the artwork, i dislike the idea to steal idea from others ^^' i present lineart of asian sona in december.... and Nikasaur see it (she add it to her fav) so... you follow my reasoning ? ^^'
Lol. I don't reckon they stole the idea even though you did post some lineart earlier. You should be happy they're making a skin similar to the skin idea you came up with. I posted a Fairy Janna skin idea on forums last year and would be so happy if they make something similar too it. Either way, Asian themed Sonas are still pretty awesome
I'm happy but ... They could send me a mail or a note to ask me if i can give them my idea... Isn't difficult and before lineart i write skin name on LoL forum. Anyway.... I search skin idea for nothing....at all.... I don't like to search for noodles è.é
