First, just because they're better than the current one, doesn't mean that they are good. Second, I don't think the majority is better than the current ones - whilst the current ones being somewhat flat, at least they focus on the champion. Complexity for the sake of complexity is always a step backwards. Anyway, let me go through each art separately:
  • Ahri - This one is alright, not too much wrong with it. The background, however, is uninteresting, dull, and might as well have not been there. Ahri has a weird pose and suddenly gained demonic eyes, which she never had. I understand that Ahri's lore is that she steals souls and all, but her original art never showed that. The post in general is just awkward and looks like she's lying down, except that she isn't. I suppose it was drawn this way so we can have a quick look up her mini skirt. Tee hee.
  • Blitzcrank - What the **** am I looking at here? No seriously, it's Blitzcrank, alright I got that. What else? I really don't know. Is he falling and trying to save his life by hooking something? That'd be weird, because that's what Nautilus does. Or maybe he is standing on the ground and bashing through a wall? I really am not sure what I'm looking at; it's one big blurry mess with an, overly realistically drawn, Blitzcrank right in the middle of it.
  • Ezreal - Actually the same **** as the Blitz one; not going to repeat myself. The trousers are a nice touch though, they look nice.
  • Janna - Eh it's alright. I don't really see how it an improvement over the current one though, aside from the fact that she looks even more than the average 15 year old boy's fantasy.
  • Kayle - What is this? Is Kayle creating the world? Is she arriving from a different dimension? Why are her wings sticking through the bubble? Oh wait, this is her ult right? I always thought that the orb in-game was just a visual indicator and that, in real-life, it'd be more subtle. I guess not. This one is just too Freudian for me.
  • Wukong - Well, everyone is complaining so I suppose I should say the opposite right? Nah not really. Honestly, this has the same thing wrong as the Cassio art: The champion depicted - Wukong in this case - looks like a wax statue rather than an actual character. He's too clean, too sterile, and the armour looks too polygonal. I do really like the setting through; at least the background is blurry for a reason.
  • Shen - Another art that's like “Oh my goodness, he does that move in-game!” Again, I didn't think Shen would disappear with purple lights like he'd be at a laser show, but apparently I was wrong on that one. Real smooth Shen. Other than that, this art is somewhat better. I like the style, the pose is at least organic, and the area seems to make sense, although it's hard to make it out because it's so damn dark - kind of like the Ahri one. The poles in the front are distracting and should not be there in my opinion.
  • Talon - Everyone loves AC, therefore let's make a splash art out of that. Talon doesn't jump at people in-game. Not that I think he can't jump, but making arts in which champions do things they don't normally do is just a bad move in general. His face is also really long and sunken, like he's an old man. Granted, his current splash art is rather boring, but at least he does not look 70 years old. Also, why this action pose? What's up with that? Couldn't they just picture him hiding behind a wall ready to slice someone's throat open? ... What? Too soon?
  • Tristana - Well a lot of things are right in this one. The background is blurry, but not that much, and in a way it serves a purpose. The angle and pose aren't ridiculous and confusing, but rather nice and pedestrian. Her gun and pose are overall really neat. I don't really like the semi-realistic drawing style of her face though; makes her look like a ****ing cartoon rabbit or something.
  • Veigar - Actually a nice art. Whilst it doesn't show a lot of background, I don't think that's needed at all; especially considering Veigar's lore is rather shallow - funny how the champions with the most shallow lore generally get the better artworks. Anyway, the post is really neat; the giant hand ready to grab you and force you into servitude; the low angle implying dominance; the glowing eyes indicating he's an evil mastermind and not just some guy who's helping you get up after you fell over with your shopping car filled with too many oranges; and lastly the violent lightning and purple magic stuff or whatever. This art says everything we need to know, it even manages to show the fact that he's vertically challenged without putting him next to some everyday object.
  • Zilean - Another good one to be fair. The detail in the clothing is really nice, especially in the foreground. The background isn't one hundred percent clear to me, but it's not distracting either; just provides some scenery I suppose. The post is neat and despite the glowing eyes, Zilean looks human; he looks real, something that's missing from most other artworks.
  • Rumble - It's a good art, definitely. It's simple and stylistic, which is good. His faithful warmachine features dents, cracks, and bumps and mostly Rumble himself seems like a real character. The fur and the eyes have a great style to them and give great contrast to the fiery background. Rumble is just portrayed really well, although I will miss his old artwork because I freaking love that one too.
  • Shaco - Ah the good ol' demon jester. He still looks really evil, the style is nice and fitting, and overall the background is drawn properly; it being not too detailed but definitely not so blurry that we can't make up what the **** is going on. At least this art portrays well how Shaco is played but I think it's the lack of a lore that made him get this – kind of – generic artwork. The detail is nice and we didn't get another ridiculous pose to look at.

I think Riot is trying to "capture" the gameplay feelings of their champion in the current spash arts.

Hence there's Blitzcrank running at you and launching his grab, Ezreal "dancing" while firing etc.

I'm geek enough to appreciate that Sivir skin because of what it represents, but I agree the splash art is horrible. On the other hand I don't even know what's the issue with "having" to play with Pax Sivir, I wish I had one myself uu
Thank you Tsuki for the sig!

it was a joke .-. jesus why does everyone take me so seriously when I complain about stupid things no one would seriously complain about?

I got it as a gift from my dad a few years ago (he bought the card/code on eBay).

Also Spectacular Sivir was the first skin I ever purchased.

The fact I'm bisexual makes my argument invalid, well ****.
