MOIRA: A study in ambiguity || Character design analysis
 
13:54
I once said I'd love to do a video about Moira someday, and I like to keep my promises when I can. Let's talk about the Naruto-running irish anime-meme witch, and the curious ambiguities that exemplify her character design. ----- Twitter: http://twitter.com/tbskyen Patreon: http://patreon.com/castercomix

I... think that is a bit premature - at the very least I want to hear Smith's inevitable rap verse on the live-action version of Friend Like Me before I pass judgment. Still, this gives us a good opportunity to talk about why Genie WAS such a brilliant character, and how his design helped bring Robin Williams' interpretation of the character to life and how it communicated the themes of the story in subtle, but effective ways.

It healed me. It brought me back from the brink. I have to read this to you. This is either the best ad-copy the mayonnaise industry has ever produced, or a brilliant piece of dystopian satire. Either way, I am so, so happy I got to read this today. Thank you to Sandy Hingston (https://twitter.com/sandyhingston) for writing it and to Philadelphia magazine for putting it online.

JHIN: Perfectly Imperfect || Character design analysis

REALITY PUNCH STUDIOS - Shonen Anime's Biggest Problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLIbI1FI6N4 ----- Bleach might be one of my biggest disappointments as a manga, but it took me a long time to figure out exactly *why* its escalating power battles felt so much worse to me than they did in a story like Dragon Ball or One Piece. Because Bleach is what happens when the ever-escalating need for more impressive power battles overtakes and obliterates the personal stakes of a story. ----- Twitter: http://twitter.com/tbskyen Patreon: http://patreon.com/castercomix

Join the channel discord: https://discord.gg/zK88tUT (25 uses only) Kled is a well requested champion for this video series, and for a good reason. He's a joke character, but also one of the best jokes Riot has ever told, which manages to say something meaningful about the world of Runeterra and the culture of Noxus while also having one of the best sets of voicelines in the game.

It is a time for reflection. It is a time for taking stock. It is a time for making lists of things. League had a fairly good year for its lore (and Riot had a bad year for Not Treating Their Employees Like Garbage) with a lot of work being put into fleshing out the remaining regions and updating old lore states to a modern, workable condition. And with the announcement of projects like Ashe: Warmother near the tail end of the year, there's an outside chance that in 2019 Riot will finally be making good on their promise to make narrative a pillar of the game design. So, let's take a look at some of (what I think is) the best of the year and talk a little bit about what it did right and why it worked for me. Before you ask "why didn't you include X or Y???" I can answer every version of that question right now: because this is a subjective list and I had to cut a bunch of good stuff to make way for what I liked the best. Also please don't @ me to argue about the Aatrox update.

Volibear showed up in a short story recently. At least I think it's Volibear. I'm reasonably sure. Did, uh... did Volibear always have twelve eyes and mind control powers? Cause he's got them now. It might be more than twelve eyes. Oh and also Udyr is Sejuani's dad, so THAT's a thing. Let's discuss!

BLOOD MOON EVELYNN: Can the fan-edit fix this? || Design discussion
 
12:34
EDIT: since it's been brought up, Erai Violette's fan-skin was made long before the official skin, the reason the video title says "fan edit" is a callback to my Sweetheart Xayah/Rakan video and also "fan version" was harder to fit in the thumbnail. --- I know it's been less than a day since the last video, but when I caught up on this topic I felt like I really wanted to talk about it. So... Blood Moon Evelynn is out and she's.... well she's... uh... sort of okay I guess? Like, she's FINE, sort of. She's not awful. She could be better. I mean she's a little disappointing. Fortunately, the community has some ideas for improving her.

What's the deal with Bowsette? || Character design discussion
 
11:08
Join the channel discord: https://discord.gg/M4HbDMJ (25 uses only) Bowsette and her hashtag has been dominating the fanart circles of social media for a few days now and, well, it seems relevant to ask... why? The concept in and of itself seems relatively simple, but clearly it's struck a real nerve with the artist communities of the world, especially in Japan. So let's talk a bit about the character designs of Bowser and Peach and the huge range of expression their principles have allowed fans and aficionados to explore through combination. Oh, and snarky comments about my modest art-abilities can be directed to 1-800-BITE-ME :) #クッパ姫 #bowsette ----------------------------- SOURCES & ARTISTS: @ayyk92 - HANIWA'S ORIGINAL: https://twitter.com/ayyk92/status/1042465252221181954 @tsunamiozazen: https://twitter.com/tsunaminozazen/status/1043823166592696320 https://twitter.com/tsunaminozazen/status/1043858212322037761 @aruurara https://twitter.com/aruurara/status/1044163031280676864 @J89092378 https://twitter.com/j89092378/status/1044147190245941249 @japhers https://twitter.com/japhers/status/1044484961712115712 https://twitter.com/japhers/status/1044591453161345024 @YoNatsuishi https://twitter.com/YoNatsuishi/status/1044462303154827264 @t_atarou https://twitter.com/t_atarou/status/1044009590222839808 @TovioR https://twitter.com/TovioR/status/1044139719062425600 @kyubumlee85 https://twitter.com/kyubumlee85/status/1044435306131451905 @Moosephu https://twitter.com/Moosephu/status/1044443616498847745 @apononori https://twitter.com/apononori/status/1044179287161503749 @Nikingply https://twitter.com/Nikingply/status/1044076326565568512 @fox_seiishin https://twitter.com/fox_seiishin/status/1044367609045688320 @touxi https://twitter.com/touxi/status/1044270195936645120 @o___8 https://twitter.com/o___8/status/1044681261120278528 @kankan33333 https://twitter.com/kankan33333/status/1043941522922598400 @aruurara https://twitter.com/aruurara/status/1044233744259768320 @zenimakitchen https://twitter.com/zenimakitchen/status/1044254754551947265 @gripelord https://twitter.com/gripelord/status/1044176782105042944 @deerbait https://twitter.com/deerbait/status/1044055139437473793 @thxkfm124 https://twitter.com/thxkfm124/status/1044158442263339008 @ivanpapiol https://twitter.com/ivanpapiol/status/1044177081729523712 @genicecream https://twitter.com/genicecream/status/1044501438649458689 @kianamaiart https://twitter.com/kianamaiart/status/1044292605549268992 @shounenking https://twitter.com/shounenking/status/1044291458033954818 @yr_aimt https://twitter.com/yr_aimt/status/1043914078085832704 @Geeflakes https://twitter.com/Geeflakes/status/1044622394294489088 @siba_29 https://twitter.com/siba_29/status/1044603537550766080 @kuroko_14 https://twitter.com/kuroko_14/status/1043662301306351616 @Silvermender https://twitter.com/Silvermender/status/1043979449782489088 @peachcosmos https://twitter.com/peachcosmos/status/1044360315738238976 geersart http://geersart.tumblr.com/post/178440779228/stream-drawings @rossdraws https://twitter.com/Rossdraws/status/1044653919324925953 @FoxRomana_0 https://twitter.com/FoxRomana_0/status/1044004884981276672 @DCWJ01 https://twitter.com/DCWJ01/status/1044322195168587776 @EttochiiArt https://twitter.com/EttochiiArt/status/1044244845550698496 @NegativeScythe https://twitter.com/NegativeScythe/status/1044831893106151424 @_AungAe https://twitter.com/_AungAe/status/1044137526527590400 @namrii_ https://twitter.com/namrii_/status/1044537945837850626 @AbsentLights https://twitter.com/AbsentLights/status/1044805035392032769 @ItsMelshmi https://twitter.com/ItsMeIshmi/status/1044198723830505472 @lilirulu https://twitter.com/lilirulu/status/1043912478525198336 @cubewatermelon https://twitter.com/cubewatermelon/status/1044480249810104321 @mizumajyo https://twitter.com/mizumajyo/status/1044514723192946688 @yeeeebis https://twitter.com/yeeeebis/status/1044502066947809280 @gunbusted https://twitter.com/Gunbusted/status/1044404801491161089 @space_ellien https://twitter.com/space_ellien/status/1044333495701491712 ----- Twitter: http://twitter.com/tbskyen Patreon: http://patreon.com/castercomix Vlog channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLid2gDn3uhmyGLycvHOLFw

What's the deal with Illaoi? || Character design & lore discussion
 
32:21
Join the channel discord: https://discord.gg/2rftB5e (25 uses only) Illaoi is an often requested champion for this video series, and certainly one of my favourite designs in the game. Built like a concrete slab and devoted to Nagakabouros, she's a decidedly different design for a game that mostly doesn't use that kind of physicality to express a character.

The Swain Rework and League's Aesthetic
 
18:17
Swain's visual and gameplay update is out, and it prompted me to think for a while about League of Legends' aesthetic and visual design, where it's been in the past and where it's going in the future. Specifically, the way that Riot has been systematically removing the ugly, the unappealing, the repulsive and the disgusting from League's visual universe, replacing it with more appealing designs. This is not necessarily BAD, mind you, or a downgrade or some sort of Triumph Of Mediocrity - it's just how the game is going, and I wanted to talk about that for a while. --------------------------- LINKS: SkinSpotlights - Classic Swain, the Noxian Grand General - Ability Preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XY1cXx0le2s Trinity Force Network: https://trinityforcenetwork.com/ Swain Champion Update: https://na.leagueoflegends.com/us/featured/champion-reveal-swain
