Revision: Elle

Art Direction

Not to toot my own horn -- but it's amazing how far along I've come being able to draw the figure. I was never happy with how Elle turned out -- the themes I wanted to convey worked against me. I had to bring her more in line with a traditional woodland elf. At the same time, I needed to add a little more League flavor to her. There are more vibrant colors used in Elle's design now, so that she stands out and conveys "Elf" to the player. Disregarding the conflicting concepts, Elle's mechanical arm is now a mangled growth of roots that acts as her new arm. This affects her lore a bit -- but like all the concepts, nothing is set in stone.
