VOLCANIC FIZZ – The Infernal Trickster
INTRODUCING VOLCANIC FIZZ
“The AMAZING concept is now the AMAZING skin!”
The Volcanic Fizz model back in 2015 was first created by Justin “Jragon” Ethington, a talented digital artist. It was a really cool concept skin. Every feature of Fizz was modeled in great details, but sadly it wasn’t available as a playable custom skin nor as a playable in-game skin by Riot.
In 2016, as a Fizz main (one trick) who discovered this skin concept, I decided to email Jragon for requesting the model so that another talented custom skin maker can turn this model into a playable custom skin. Due to personal reasons, Jragon declined my request. I did not give up.
In mid-2017, I decided to email him again. Finally, the request was accepted! Now I have to find a talented custom skin maker, and through fate, a very talented Chinese skin maker, Ckyel turned up.
He was able to transfer 100% from the original model to in-game model without compressions (quality loss) made. The in-game model looked exactly like how it looked like as a 3D model, even its long dragon tail is nicely animated. Plus, he even added lava-like particles almost the same as listed in the skin idea, all by his own!
Ckyel and Jragon are both very talented artists. All thanks to them, the Volcanic Fizz skin is now finally available as playable custom skin! Without either one of them, this custom skin could never be made possible. THANK YOU SO MUCH! BOTH OF YOU GUYZ ROCK!

🔥LoLittleBoy also has something to say:
First and foremost, I would like to thank Justin “Jragon” Ethington for willing to share the model with me. I am really, truly grateful of that. Without the models, the custom skin could never be made possible. Thank you for trusting in me. Secondly, I would like to thank Ckyel for the works he had done. I know there are lots of other custom skin makers that can make Volcanic Fizz playable, but when I first offered the project in MapSkins Discord, only Ckyel turned up to me. There is also another custom skin maker who turned up, but in the end, he was too busy to work on the project. Thus, Ckyel worked on it all by his own. Although he is very talented in making custom skins, he remained humble and patient in listening all my suggestions and opinions given throughout the making of the skin. He also considered me as his great friend, which I truly appreciate it. As in return, I will help him in posting and promoting his custom skins in MapSkins if he ever needed the help in the future. Lastly, I would like to thank the Editor of Mapskins for approving this post. Thanks to your approval, this great skin can finally be available to the public and let many Fizz lovers able have fun with this skin. As for the public, comments are absolutely welcomed. Feel free to leave a comment about your thoughts, questions or bugs occured in this skin. And… Enjoy!

- Why did you post it instead of Ckyel himself?
Because first, he is not familiar with MapSkins posting. Secondly, he is not good in English as he came from the Chinese custom skin community. I am good in both Chinese and English, and was familiar with MapSkins posting too. That’s why, I am doing the posting for him. With that, he can focus on doing what he’s best at without having to spend extra time on posting. In the future, you may expect to see me posting for Ckyel. Of course, the credits go to him.
- Why do you consider Volcanic Fizz as the best custom skin for Fizz?
Because in my opinion, when comparing with all the custom skins Fizz had, many of their models aren’t original. Some come from other Riot-made skins (example: Void Fizz, Super Galaxy Fizz). Some do have their original models with original ideas (example: Skeleton Fizz, Mecha Fizz), but their models aren’t as high quality as this one. Moreover, most of them don’t have their original custom made particles (simple recoloring doesn’t count) that Volcanic Fizz has. To point out a few, you can notice Volcanic Fizz’s W Seastone Trident active is very different from all other skins. Instead of a recolored glowing trident, a special burning flame was used. Another one is Q Urchin Strike. The flame-like trail is totally original and did not come from Riot-made Fizz skins. Original model (thanks to Jragon) and original particles (thanks to Ckyel), plus it all looked gorgeous, this is why I think that Volcanic Fizz is the greatest custom skin ever made for Fizz.
Feel free to comment about your thoughts too!
- Wow, this is such a cool skin! Can I make videos about this skin?
Sure! Do make sure you credit the creator and the skin maker in your videos ;)nn
