I got to admit, I found this hilarious. Riot did say that they didn't want to over sexualize her, and yet.. they put her in such a ...eyecandy pose... ;'(

Eye candy pose?

She's standing up straight with her arms out as if to say "Come at me." As in, the exact same pose that Jarvan has.

Or Jayce.

Or Brand.

I could go on, but that's pretty much the stereotypical badass pose that the bad ass guys (and Kayle) share. It's not an eyecandy pose in the slightest. An eyecandy pose is where the champion is posing in such a manner as to be provocative. Examples would be Miss Fortune, Evelynn, or Janna, who are all twisting their body to try and show their ass and their breasts at the same time.

Now, having said that, there's a difference between an eye candy pose and an eye candy angle. A champion can be in a normal pose but still have an eye candy camera shot. like Sona, where her pose is just her standing there playing music but the camera is angled over her to emphasis her breasts.

Or this particular Caitlyn shot where she is just sitting there, but the camera is angled over here to display her breasts.

So, is Vi's camera angle eye candy at all? No, it's just angled below her slightly. If she were in a miniskirt, it would totally be an eyecandy shot, but she isn't so it isn't. Instead, the shot shows her in a position of power over the viewer, reinforcing her image as a strong character. She's looking down on the people who are not her because she is super confident and knows she is better than them. Nothing eye candy about it at all.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

I thought this was great, until I read the thread pointing out her awkwardly drawn butt cheeks.

Now I can't unsee it and the whole splash art is ruined. Lol.

OH RIOT


Are you saying that a fully clothed and tomboyish woman who swings giant metal fists is somehow sexual?

I'm not sure I want to know what you're in to.
