It's always special when John Tobias shares original artwork from his personal archive. The Mortal Kombat co-creator recently treated fans to a sketch of Jax and Sonya - the original Special Forces! Check it out:

The black & white sketch is from an undetermined point in the late nineties, right around the time Jax and Sonya were starring in Mortal Kombat 4 and Mortal Kombat: Special Forces. As fans know, Sonya was originally intended to be a playable character in the 2000 action-adventure title, but was excised before its troubled release.
