Syndra Design Variations 1 Paul Kwon by ZeroNis Syndra Design Variations 1 Paul Kwon by ZeroNis
This is kind of a delayed submission for some ideation sketches of my precious champion designs but it's better than submitting later.
Since many have asked and were very interested in the development process for champion designs, I'm going to try to submit as much of the process sketches as I can.

These were some early silhouette variations that I did for her. Ultimately, these did not work out due to overlap issues and technical stuff.

Thanks!

I wish Syndra had those floating things ingame, kind of like Ghost Bride Morgana. It's absolutely beautiful.

i like the second one more.. it creates a greater contrast with her more fragile silhouette, therefore making it more interesting
very nice work
keep it going :)

I rather enjoy the dragon one and letter D the wide yet sharp pointed horns really set it off. i would imagine a real dragon would look much like it :P

These are... so crazy good!! I can't believe we have Syndra the way she is now! these evoke Ionia in ways current Syndra never could... her helmets are a little bit too Lissandra-ish but I'd rather have 2 alien-like possesed girls than beauty pageant contesters... I wish syndra had these Ionian garment on her back and the skirt constrains too! love the serenity in each one of these!!

I'd have to say either B or D. But Syndra looks awesome even without the designs. These make her look even cooler! ^^

C and D works the best with the overall design of the armour. C represents more of a feminine and lush personality, D more fierce and hateful.  Definitely go for D! :)

the "B" and "C" are the more striking for its compocicion. 

The "B" looks a little rough but that gives it a reckless and "sudden" giving more precencia in the field

Unlike the "C" looks more elegant and that would give smoother appearance in the field, but does not lose the mystery and character that unique touch

I really like these. The floating structures really add to her silhouette and actually make her look like a sovereign rather than just some floating chick with a funny-looking head dress.

I hope a question isn't out of order:  Would you have a one or two word name for the inspiration of each? 

I THINK I see a bit more Giger in one than the rest, perhaps some Pan's Labyrinth in another, and maybe even a bit of Lillandra from X-Men in a third... but my own impressions don't speak a bit to sources of inspiration.
