That is awesome. The sad thing is I have heard that devs cannot take player ideas for heroes/skins even with consent because of copyright, which is dumb.

@NobodyPi and @JackHallow666 ... I own a business that works with artists daily as my company designs figurines and miniatures for retail sale. I frequently make products from art that I just come across on the internet. All you need is a release of work from the artist and there is zero issue.
I'm on the DB Developer's Summits so there are players constantly giving DB ideas for changes to the game that many have gone into use. The whole concepts of adding extra quests to have enough crowns that someone can have one day off for an emergency was my idea and DB was willing to use that without fear of IP or copyright release. In fact, I think I had to agree to full release to be part of that group for any ideas I offered which was no problem.
So all that is needed is a release.
@Joel and @Eej ... I, Thomas L Anders, fully release the concept and my derivative art of S'more Phenol to Dungeon Boss, Boss Fight and Big Fish. This release is done without expectation of any remuneration of any kind monetary or material.
There standard release statement I use with my arts who give me their work free of charge to use for miniatures. Eej or Joel ... if you need me to sign anything ... happy to do so if you want to use the concept. I do this work daily and have zero issues with the legal side of nailing down rights so either of you can reach out to me if you enjoy the concept and need to protect Boss Fight legally.
I showed the art to the Developer's Summit group and they loved it. A mass call for this should be a thing. So definitely don't let a little thing like needing me to email a sign off stop you ... happy to do so.

I was wrong. After reading the summit, it seemed that Eej was saying that they can use community ideas and once in a while they do, but generally, they do not take ideas from the community for heroes/epics/skins. This is because they are not at a lack for ideas on new heroes or new skins, etc. They are at a lack of time to implement them (and for things other than skins, test them). I am sorry I gave misinformation, but I am glad that I was wrong because they should be able to use fan suggestions.
