Syndra VFX Update

Here's Riot Sirhaian with details on a Syndra VFX update now testing on the PBE!
Hello everyone! 
Similar to the previous VFX updates we’ve made in the past (Ziggs, Zilean, Malzahar, etc), we're working on updates to the Visual Effects (VFX) of champions whose spell effects are in need of some love. Our aim is to get their VFXs to current League standards and improve gameplay clarity. This time, it's Syndra's turn, for 11.21's PBE Patch! I worked on this particular VFX Update with the great Riot Temcampy! 
Just like all the previous ones, and since these are smaller updates geared toward sprucing up some of the oldest members of the roster, they aren't in the same prioritization conversation as to how we decide who gets a VGU (where we take model, gameplay, and thematic into account too!): they do not affect any other timeline, and are simply dev passion projects.

Here's a video preview of the changes. As usual, the more recent the skins are, the less changes they are getting. Her most recent skins only received very minimal tweaks (or not at all) and are not included in the video
All affected skins:
Base, tweaked from early feedback:
Thumbnail for those interested:
------------------------ 
Per-skin details:
  • Base: Complete overhaul
  • Justicar: Complete overhaul, should finally be readable
  • Atlantean: Minimal changes, it was already pretty good gameplay and art-wise
  • Queen of Diamonds: Uses base changes
  • Snow Day: Pretty big changes, mainly aimed at mirroring base's and cleaning up the noise
  • SKT T1: Mirroring base changes and added subtle SKT T1 logo in lvl 5 E cone
  • Star Guardian: Minimal changes
  • Pool Party: Minimal tweaks
  • Withered Rose: No changes
  • Bewitching: No changes
------------------------ 
We're looking for feedback on her changes, which should be up on the PBE soon. Please try her out there —especially if you're a main— and leave us your feedback once the changes are up! 
EDIT 1: Main feedback I'm seeing is bringing back some of the darkness in her base. I'll be working on that and will keep y'all posted! 
EDIT 2: Here's a small update based on your early feedback, mainly to try and add some darkness back into her lvl 5 kit. Also toned down the R impact on Snow Day Syndra, as it was way too bright (not shown in this video). Let us know if you have more feedback! 
Video (Tweaks 1):
EDIT 3: Tweaked SG Syndra's Ult a little bit (some sparklies and a new trail) and Base's ult (a bit more reds and details to it).
