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.
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.
FORTNITE ICON SERIES: XQC (CONCEPT)
I've been watching @xQc play Fortnite recently, so I attempted to create a Fortnite skin for him!
This is my first time making anything like this. Drop a follow for future concepts!

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.
