Earlier this week, Twitter consumer Killianjunk uploaded their very own tackle what Akali would appear to be in Undertaking L. It’s good, so good in truth that once I was casually scrolling via Twitter on Thursday morning, I assumed it was a part of a authentic announcement at first look.
The mannequin is created in keeping with Akali’s traditional pores and skin, completely in 3D and with a shader (created by consumer AerthasVeras) that’s as near the precise recreation’s mannequin as you may fairly count on. It’s borderline uncanny how a lot it appears like a real Undertaking L character, a lot in order that Undertaking L head Tom Cannon himself complimented the work.
It’s been some time since we’ve heard something from the Undertaking L crew, having left us with a longform weblog put up about Illaoi that took us via the design philosophy of the champion. However, as KillianJunk confirmed, the joy round new champion reveals continues to be burning away within the hearts of followers all around the world.
We’re nonetheless due yet one more large reveal for the sport someday this 12 months, however whereas we’re ready it’s good to see some gifted of us on the market preserve the sport within the minds of each combating recreation followers and Riot diehards for the foreseeable future. As for Killian, we hope they create extra character ideas for Undertaking L sooner or later, even when the sport might be a bazillion years away.
For extra Undertaking L content material, we even have some options on the sport which can be each value a learn. The primary,is a chat with League followers at this 12 months’s LEC finals in Malmo about whether or not they care concerning the recreation, whereas the opposite is a chinwag with Alberto Guererro on Riot’s hopes for the sport esports-wise.
