Skin Tweaks

Riot KateyKhaos noted changes for Spirit Blossom Yasuo heading to the PBE to test soon!
"Model changes: 
  • Lengthened the hair and made it a little less bulbous.
  • Adjusted shading near the bottom of the model to make it less muddy. 
The team also talk about the tornado VFX and won't be making changes. 
From the VFX artist: "The Q was made with the consideration that the only part of it that actually "hits" you is the bottom part of the cone where the decal is! I was asked to keep it closer to what it actually does for gameplay!""

Looks like the shading has been updated, hair has not been changed in game just yet!

Riot MoreChrono also noted there would not be other changes for Spirit Blossom Vayne:
"Thanks for the feedback everyone! We have noted that there is some cohesion difficulties between the skin and the emotes/icons. The team felt it important to not hide Vayne's face as it makes it very hard to show any kind of expression in the icons/emotes. As for some of the other things mentioned we have decided not to make any changes at this time."
