Too Bright?

This is the new Lux splash art for “League of Legends.” It is technically very good, but there are things about it that aren’t … right. o_O

Some things to note in my book:
– Lux is TOO HAPPY in this picture. Like way too overjoyed.
– I guess I am cool with the bright background because she is supposed to be a light mage … so I am on the fence about this aspect for the splash.
– Lux’s pose in the picture is kind of awkward. Again, she is supposed to be really cheerful and all, but it comes off a bit strange.

Case in point: look at how Lux looks compared to other champ icons. The picture is framed a bit strangely, so it kind of appears like Lux is from an entirely different game. It just doesn’t mesh well in my opinion.

Still, it’s good that Riot likes to change and update the art for some characters. But honestly, I really liked the old Lux one anyway. I thought it reflected Lux’s whimsical side in a subtle and appealing manner that wasn’t over the top. I preferred the old one by a lot, actually.

Regardless, whether you love or hate the new splash for Lux, at least you can say with confidence that the “original” Lux design will always be the worst one in everyone’s eyes.


What were they thinking when they put this together? Like seriously? *^*

    While I do appreciate them trying to update her look, I *really* dislike the new Lux art, and this tumblr post will show you exactly why:

    With just a few subtle changes, suddenly this manic, kill-you-in-your-sleep psychopath reverts to being the happy, whimsical Lux we all know and love. I honestly don’t know what the Riot art team was thinking with this one, or what the rest of the devs were thinking when they gave it the green light. A lot of my friends are also artists and they have also been deeply disappointed with the new art.

    Compared to stuff like Tryndamere, Soraka, and Miss Fortune’s new art, I think the new Lux image falls badly short.

      Wow, that fixed picture is significantly better for sure. Also, would you or your friends be interested in coming up with stuff for Cerule? A simple drawing/doodle. It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate.

        Hmm, possibly! I will pass the idea on to my artist friends. 🙂
