Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

So this is somewhat overdue, I meant to make this post months ago when it was first revealed but you know life right?

Anyway, a few months back Blizzard added a new alternate texture to the Queen of Ghosts Kerrigan skin in Heroes of the Storm - a skin that reimagines a post Wings of Liberty Kerrigan purged of the Zerg infestation and outfitted with the best in Umojan technology. She has a robotic Ultralisk and everything! - dubbed 'Queen of Templar', a Protoss themed version of Kerrigan.
QueenOfTemplar by Xaran-Alamas

Now those of you familiar with my page here may remember I uploaded some concepts a couple of years back for a Protoss themed Kerrigan skin, complete with lore of her being from an AU where for whatever reason Tassadar saved her from Tarsonis before the Zerg could capture and infest her, and trained her in the use of her psychic abilites using Templar teachings and techniques. I've actually done several further iterations and concepts of this idea which I have not uploaded here as well as worked on fleshing out her universe on and off.
Templar Kerrigan Refinement by Xaran-Alamas

Now of course there are multiple differences in the design, for example my take had her blade wings replaced by levitated Psi-blades (to maintain the Heroes silhouette and animations) as well as her retaining natural hair as she was never infested. Of course these are easily explained as the Blizzard skin being a simple retexture rather than a full remodel.
What you probably DON'T know is I showed my ideas to a few Blizzard artists involved in Heroes - I won't name names but they are both here on DeviantArt - and they were very taken with the idea.

So in the absence of proof to the contrary, I am totally taking credit for inspiring this skin! :D And I couldn't be happier about it ^_^
I'm seriously considering having a go at editing the Queen of Templar model and skin to make a version of my 'Queen of Psi-blades' Kerrigan who I can have running around in StarCraft 2.

If you've made it this far, thanks for reading me stroking my ego and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. And if Christmas isn't your thing, have a Happy December 25th! <3
