For my character art entry to the Riot Games Polycount contest, I will be creating a skin for Swain based on a modern urban aesthetic. Swain was released over 7 years ago, but he's a bit low on skins (only 3!) and I feel that his identity could be explored more. Swain strikes me as a sophisticated and collected individual, and it makes sense that he would dress well. Three unique characteristics of his design are his limp/cane, scarf that obscures his mouth, and his bird Beatrice. Besides wanting to explore a different take on Swain, I really really want to see him with a flock of PIGEONS.
