Hey everyone, Tyranitar12 here brining you the latest on the skins splash update for previously updated champions. This project started all the way back in 6.9 with Trundle, followed by Tristana, Nidalee, Sion, Fiora, Twitch and Karma. Champion Updates also are included starting with Poppy back in 5.24, who was later followed by Shen, Taric, Ryze, Yorick, Warwick, Galio, Urgot and Evelynn.
Before we get started; shared splashes will not be updated, only the champion that received a VGU will be updated in said shared splash (e.g Safecracker Evelynn). Some modern splashes will be updated to match the new look of the skin/champion but those will normally not be re-done from scratch (e.g Debonair Galio). Other splashes will receive tweaks to unify a champion's look throughout each splash (e.g Rocket Girl Tristana).
OFFICIAL INFO FROM RIOTERS
UPDATE 1: Miss Fortune splashes are currently being worked on, but due to being down an illustrator, progress on them is going at a very slow pace.

UPDATE 3: Xin Zhao will be getting a new base splash art shortly after his Gameplay Update.
UPDATE 4: Irelia has been revealed to be the next VGU after Swain.
