For those who do not know, there is an ample amount of skins in League; so why not combine the two biggest titles that Riot has to offer.

Posting these to Twitter, the response was insane; as both tweets reached around 20,000 likes and the countless number of people talking about them

With the overwhelming amount of support that the League of Legends and Valorant communities poured onto the artist, this warranted a response from Joe Ziegler; the league game director for Valorant. 

Tagging Andrei van Roon who is the lead game director for League of Legends below the concept art. 

Perhaps we will see these Valorant skins in League of Legends sometime soon!

Damn, that's pretty legit. We should see what we can figure out.
