LoL skin concept: Radiant Leona by Shockowaffel LoL skin concept: Radiant Leona by Shockowaffel
Leona is one of my favorite champions in League of Legends.
Sadly she doesnt really have a good skin. The project skin is kinda bland and the barbecue skin is for fun while the rest is simply old or ugly.

Something that sparked the idea for this skin is the permanent glowing effect on Azir and Radiant Wukong.
Since Leona's theme is the sun, I always wondered why she didnt have that glow as well?
At first I tested some ideas for an ascended Leona, but wasn't happy with the results, so I went for a radiant Leona instead.
The themes are chinese lore and tibetan monks and of course I changed it a bit to give it it's own flair.

Here's a link to the US LoL forum, where I posted this as well.

Tibetan monk style sounds a bit more accurate.

This is fricking perfect! Altho, on a design standpoint, the Radiant wukong skin is inspired by Japanese culture and lore and this Leona skin has an elephant motive which is usually used in Hindu culture so having this skin carry the ˝Radiant˝ tag is kinda confusing design wise, just a thought. Otherwise the visuals are amazing.

Yea, I missed that part about the Wukong skin. The monkey king story is chinese though, not japanese, if I'm not mistaken.
The chinese zodiac doesnt offer a lot for leona though.
Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig

As much as I'd love a bunny skin, it doesnt fit for leona, so I guess it's tiger or dragon ?
Dragon is kinda oerused I feel, but it would fit the fire theme, but tiger might be fine as well.

Pool Party Leona is pretty good. And I like Valkyrie because it ties into the lore
