Zed, the Master of Shadows by eoinart Zed, the Master of Shadows by eoinart
Zed - the Master of Shadows!

Now that Zed is out I can share with you some of the concept art that went into his creation.

This image is a turn around of the character, which is created towards the end of a Champion design to inform production on key details of the character.
A lot of iteration is involved in getting to this stage which is what I will post next!

More soon! All the Best!

Brilliant work, like how you have blended the traditional aspects of the ninja with the fantasy.

Tbh I really prefer this one. :P
I LOVE red, and the red-black combination of the current Zed rocks, but this concept is more... Shadowy and edgy.
Green and purple remind me more of shadows than pure red.
His lightning skin is a work of art, though <3

One of my favorite champs and the one I got the best with, but I haven't been using him since I started to try getting decent/good at a lot of different champions. I love Zed's theme, he was an instabuy for me.

Hey Amber, great question!
I will post a full thread (by this weekend) breaking down the whole process of the thought process that went into ZED, it took me a ton of drawings to get to this version! Some ideas stick early and some and iterated on for quite a while, I'll stop blabbering and dig out some early Zed concepts! I'll Keep you posted!
