Zyra Ideation Sketches 1 by ZeroNis Zyra Ideation Sketches 1 by ZeroNis
Here's the process of making Zyra. These are early ideation sketches before she was finalized to be who she is now.
I did many explorations and started doing some subtle variations here. Me and Morello(Ryan Scott) worked hard on picking the right direction for the character. We really thought about playing with the thick vine hair that could potentially show really cool attack moves and animations. We also played with the short vine hair that could glow when she casted magic. Ultimately what we wanted was a deadly and fierce Zyra that represented nature's wrath.

I actually like the short vine hair a lot. Not too big of a fan of the long vine hair. Wish it was a little more like her sneak peak art.

I actually like the idea of a short-haired Zyra. Especially E (and the detail shot). Random odd question: would it be hard to make a skin based off that concept? I would buy it in a heartbeat. Zyra is such a strong support AND mid, so I'd use it a lot (my main roles).

Would be awesome for Christmas sales to have a Zyra Winter Skin where her W spell makes snowmen who throw snowballs :D

I like the punky short hair. I wish that the cone hair thing (like Diana has) was less common, but it definitely worked on Zyra.

Short hair with a tentacle head? This should have been her model. Fuck all these champs with long hair, make a short haired girl already damn eeeeeT! (Not talking to you the artist, per-say.)

On Version B - F her hair is very close to the hair of Alexia Ashford of the RE Series. Intended or not, i like the referrence.

I am so glad you provide this. It's not only great artwork, but it's helpful to aspiring designers like myself seeing not only the stages but also different images for characters. Hope to see more like this for all the champions you help design.

so true... It really helped me in my field. Coming up with character designs is heavy work. But seeing as you can't just come-up with only one style (as seen in the artwork above), it gave me various ways of seeing my Character whenever I make them. Really helpful!

She turned out amazing dude, hope you agree (personally I'd want to use EVERY form I came up with)! I've always loved Poison Ivy and this awesome chick kicks her ass. I'd like to buy her in League someday, she's fun :D

Seems like Zyra had gone through a good amount of process work. She's a great champ except I don't really know how to use her.

God I love these sketches of how much you and Morello worked through to get to your final product. All of them are beautiful ideas, but the final really does look the best.
You amaze me with all of your gorgeous concept art <3
