Seeing a common theme with the previous Steam-punk Kael'thas skin, there.

I'm always curious to see the process when deciding to make a skin. Does it come up during some brain-storming ?
Or does the concept artist (Luke Mancini, here, I see mr--jack.deviantart.com ) draws a sketch and hopes that other people at Blizzard will like it ? And if so, it gets made ?

There is a few themes we have settled already like Egyptian one or Steam punk for example, but all our artists can always suggest a new one.

Right. I think there's also a samurai theme and a hyper-space one... These always feel weird to me. It's often like there's a private joke on the character that I don't understand.

I'm always a little sad to not see more skins showing how a character looked like in a past game (or how he looks now if the character has changed since).
That'd be a great theme, since Blizzard's characters are often visually evolving over the years.
Either that or more skins showing a parallel timeline, but not something too crazy, rather something credible. Like "what if that uncorruptible character actually got corrupted? (ie Thrall's Hellhammer skin  bnetcmsus-a.akamaihd.net/cms/c… )
I LOVE what you guys did with the "past" skins for Arthas and Sylvanas (she even got a Legion skin, that's awesome!). I noticed Diablo got his female look from D3, that's great too!

As for Kael'thas, I've been hoping to see if you'd approach his "Quel'danas" look, when he was corrupted with a fel-crystal sticking out of his chest ( vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/w… ).
Here's a technical question : seeing as Kael'thas actually has legs (since his HotS model is inspired by his WC3 look), is it even possible to give him a robe? Would his leg bones still work to animate that?

Thanks for the answer.  ;)
