Mantis Shrimp Nami by Kuthinks Mantis Shrimp Nami by Kuthinks
Done for a 'skin' design contest for an existing League of Legends character. I thought to myself, who doesn't like Mantis Shrimps...?

--for those who asked, the contest was held within Ringling College of Art and Design and has now ended--
Nami won the contest! :D

Damn, she must be one of those whose strength comes from her natural abillities if she is based on a mantis shrimp. Those little buggers packs a very mean punch!

You have to submit this to Riot. I'd buy this skin faster than a Mantis Shrimp can strike.

This would fit so well for Nami, with the mantis shrimps claws being able to break glass and boil water and all. She's a badass. :3
