Two artists have created some amazing Fortnite skin concepts for Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel and Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys for the game’s Icon Series.

The Fortnite Icon Series is a brand new initiative designed by Epic Games to engage with and highlight the work of Fortnite personalities.

It kicked off with the most famous streaming personality, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins receiving his very own Fortnite skin, as well as other huge content creators like Pokimane and Jordan Fisher receiving in-game emotes.

Ninja was the first streamer to receive a skin in Fortnite.

Since then fans have been busy creating concepts for their favorite streamers, with Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney being one of the first streamers to be recreated in a Fortnite design. However, it didn’t stop there as two more stunning designs have popped up, featuring xQc and Pokimane.

The xQc concept was created by @Nova_The_Gamer and is an amazing recreation of everyone’s favorite ex-Overwatch pro. Fans absolutely loved the design, but did spot some improvements, as they filled the comments.

“This looks super cool! The only issue I see is the hands, otherwise amazing Nova!” said one user, while another just posted a ‘Pog’ emote. The criticism went down well with Nova, who also realized the hands are quite large – but other than that, it’s a great take on xQc.

Meanwhile, @D3NNI_yt returned with a concept of Pokimane, not long after starting the trend with the Tfue design.

The concept of Imane is extremely detailed and even features two styles, streamer and casual, as well as a hilarious ‘poggers’ backpack.

It also looks almost identical to Pokimane, so much so that that the streamer herself was completely stunned by it when checking it out on stream and even shared her love for it with a “this is insaaaane” reply.

Overall, both concepts look incredibly and would be an amazing addition to the Icon Series, for both the content creators and their fans.

However, for now all we can do is wait and see if either of these skin concepts are turned to reality, but with both streamers being involved with Fortnite, it may just happen.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
