Elise The Spider Queen by ZeroNis Elise The Spider Queen by ZeroNis
Its been a very long time since we first thought of the champion. Priscilla was her original name and concept.
I have to say, she was a very fun champion to concept and I was overwhelmed with all the positive response from the community and their excitement for the champion.
She is going to kick ass in the game for a very very long time!
Thanks everyone in advance and feel free to ask any questions regarding the concept!

EDIT: I read some comments about how Riot is releasing so many scantly clad women and how unoriginal they are. Please keep those flamebait comments to yourself and the opinions about how sexual these champs look. They are designed this way for good reason and lore reasons (Seductress). Also she's designed with global appeal in mind, not just for Western audience only. I would appreciate if you could keep the topic out of this post to prevent any endless debate.

Like the fact that her shoes end in spider points.  Also the armour is excellent 😃

Even though I love your art, I'm not really happy with how you can't take critique on the clothing. I personally think it's amazing, but people should be allowed to state their opinion. That's what the comment section is for. 
konachii Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2015
I think it's crappy that you're trying to shut down free speech in your comments. People are allowed to criticize whatever they like. Moreover, someone could love your character design but still feel that LoL releases too many scantily clad women. Those things don't negate each other.

Wow! Her stance is amazing, I've never seen feet/shoes like that on any other char (afaik) :thumbsup::) Awesome work. Beautiful design.

I know everyone is allowed to have their own opinion but I don't see anything so sexual in this design. She doesn't have her butt or boobs  completely out and her body is mostly covered so if u find her design so sexual and disgusting there's something wrong with ya. Awesome champ :rose:

If you can't take critic from people who are not perverts and who have taste, then don't publish anything. Or do it on some other site.

I can't believe you are responsible of design of my the favouritest characters from LoL !!!! Syndra, Karma, Elise.. DDAAAMNN <33333 I am so impressed and honour to you for your awesome artworks and mind!

The more glory to you because I am not playing much games, it have to really attract my attention to start (I try to respect my time ) and I started playing LoL only because I fell in love with Elise and Vladimir concepts!! later I fell for Syndra and Karma and they were all characters I wanted to play in fact (oh ok and Tresh x'D )
This game is full of awesome artworks and ideas it is maybe even most important (ok, for me ) than game-play style and all this cooperation thingie. For me people like you keeps this game be loved by so many and attracted to it for a long time by updating skins, improving look of older characters, by releasing new playable champions.

Greetings to you, great honour, and a lot of love for your designs ;//_//; I can't wait to see your other ideas!!

I really think you did an awesome job with her! And about her not having enough clothing, i think it suits her. I mean, she doesn't look like someone who wouldn't use her looks to her advantage :3
I've been looking through your gallery, and man, your coloring works are awesome! I'm still figuring out my own way of coloring things, since i've always used cell shading. You really are awesome, and keep up the good work, because your designs are amazing! :D

Phoenix-Fightmaster Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2014  Hobbyist
The spider form looks great, and as a character, I find Elise fairly interesting. She's probably closer to the Lovecraftian horror genre than most of the Void creatures, actually.

And I apologize if there are critical comments that aren't so constructive, but I honestly feel that her human form is a weak design. It's not because of fanservice - Right now, I think LoL's doing a pretty good job of giving us a wide variety of characters, male and female. My problems with it are twofold:

- It looks like every other spider-themed dominatrix out there, of which there are surprisingly many. Most champions certainly invoke a fantasy or sci-fi archetype, but if I looked right at them, I would recognize them instantly. Elise is different. She could easily be a humanized Blackarachnia, or an Evil-Spinnerette expy.

- Her design and themes clash. She's dressed like an Evil Empress, but her job is to seduce people to feed them to her master. That job would be a lot easier if she wasn't dressed as an animal that's widely known for eating its mates. I think it would work a lot better if she kept the big flowing dress Priscilla was wearing, or maybe an elegant robe. Sure, she probably shouldn't have big spider legs carrying her, but she'd be more visually interesting, and make a lot more sense as what she is. A Victorian dress or set of culty robes could invoke the Lovecraftian undertones of her backstory, and make her stand out a lot more.

I'm aware that a lot of comments on female champion designs are inflammatory or accuse the artists of sexism, and I don't think that's true. Most champions have really good, solid designs, male and female, practical and skimpy. I love the lot of them, which is why I feel the need to comment. I like Elise as a character, and I think you all are capable of giving her a much better look. Even if it's just an alternate skin, I think it needs work.

those heels though
Oujisan98 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
i believe u mean toes XD
chichibo Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014
No he probably means heels. The feet are designed to be like high heels except for the heel part of "the shoe" is on the toe part instead. Which is a different and unique concept I havent scene.
Oujisan98 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
no i was being funny i know what he meant because there is nothing to support the heel
Freeasacloud Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
She is soooo pretty, love the art more than the actual game, but how awesome it must feel to create something and then get the chance to make it alive, knowing other people use it :love:

warlockmockalock Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2013
Personally i don't think Elise is scantly clad, or overly sexual. Her costume kind of reminds me of soft exoskeleton in a way, I know there's a few people who call it latex, but thank goodness it's not super shiny reflect everything kind of black outfit. Her design is absolutely memorable, perfect imo overall. I also love the actual spider form design. Awesome work in my opinion. She's my top champion and pretty sure it's going to stay there for a long, long time. I know some people in the comments adore spiders, I do as well. I have many fond experiences with a variety of them, I'm glad Riot added Elise to the list, though i'm hoping they don't nerf her to death.
