    This is by far, hands-down, the best Odyssey 2018 skin concept. There is only one thing that bothers me though, her lich form doesn't need to turn her into an old hag (or a corpse). Why not leave her human appearance and just put some kind of spirit aura around her, or better yet, leave her human appearance but make it look spirit-like (spectral). Everything else is fantastic. I can even see this concept as lore friendly, or building up on her original lore. This continuation of her lore may perhaps be something like this: Skadi (the goddess of winter), seeing that winter isn't exactly one of the favored things among most people (and gods), wanted to expand her influence and power. Thus she began dabbling into dark arts (mainly necromancy) which granted her immense power, but she made quite a few enemies, though her greatest enemy might be Hel, the goddess of the dead and the underworld, who wouldn't approve of Skadi's nefarious experiments with people and her attempts to build a massive undead army. I would most certainly like to see your skin concept in Smite (and I would of course do my best to get that skin).

    Thanks man, I experimented with using a normal human in the initial design process and it just didn't look anywhere near as cool, i feel the whole hag/undeadish side of things would just make you feel more powerful when you play with it but thanks for the heads up , il try a couple more with a human form , don't know if i'll post them though :P

    I'm thinking this might be too cliché for it to make any headway. I like the concept, but if it came down to it on a vote I don't think people would go for this model. As others have said I think it's too similar to demonic pact.

    Well it's your concept, you're free to do with it whatever you want, but I would highly encourage you to make a (ghostly) spectral version of her human appearance for the ult and add some effects like blue fire, smoke, dust, souls etc. Here's a rough example of such an appearance without the effects: http://feliciacano.deviantart.com/art/Haunt-100766648 . Actually, I've got quite a bit of skill in Photoshop (note that I wouldn't do this if I didn't really want this to win) so here, a quick edit of your work:


    So what do you say?

    Not going to lie, I don't like this concept. Yeah your artwork looks great, but is it reasonable in game? If it's voted in, fine... But if this is the skin that's chosen count me out of buying this year's odyssey. Not to mention skadi is such a newer God than Hou yi and Ullr. She's overplayed and too easy to use. Don't think she deserves the t5 this year to begin with.

    It has its charms but theres a very distinct lack of colour variety, would make it hard to differentiate between textures in the game. Also most of the T5's quite dramatically change the mesh and this doesnt seem like it would be much other than a texture shift but i dont know , ultimately its down to hi-rez and i do believe they read through the comments so theres a good chace they will see this gimme till tomorrow and il post up an edit in the comments n see what u think? (may take longer than i expect)

    To answer all your points in one comment:

    A: When designing this i overlayed the reference images (they all fit and the props ive given her overlay her existing ones)
    B: Skadi is barely one year older than hou yi im not sure release date comes into the final choice
    C: Hou Yi and Ullr are both male (we've had 3 males in a row)
    D: Post nerf skadi is actually harder to play than hou yi since she does less reliable damage

    End of the day youre free to feel how you want but just some points to consider , thanks about the artwork though :P

    Don't get me wrong it's a nice concept and i like it but theme-wise shouldn't be the reverse?
    I mean a lich that die an be reverted to human form isn't a bit of a contradiction? Expecially when the opposite can be very true?

    Ok, sorry, maybe i'm just overthinking but I just thought that this was funny and wanted to share my opinion

    Ahah I see what you mean and logically that makes a lot of sense but I mean , would you buy a T5 that turns you back rather than forwards :P would be kinda dull
