He looks badass.... I love how he reminds me of Robin Shou from the movie. One gripe I do have is that damn belt...

@MINION, I see what you're saying dude, I actually like his newer rope look near his knees as oppose to the same old "exact" look......that he's generally known for. It's classic Liu with a couple of new looking details.

I love the details on his fingernails, fingers and muscles. Look great especially.smile

I maybe a die hard MK fan. But I'm not gonna fake a front. This is not Liu Kang IMO. This is New Kang. This look should of been saved for MK9. This game is about ICON's, and should be considered with ICONIC appearances in outfits as well.

I like it! Liu looks hawt. The only thing I'll nit pick at is his hands. Looks like
his finger nails are under the skin instead of over it *shrugs* could have
added a little more color to his skin tone, but overall I am happy with it, just
doesn't seem completely finished or something. ehh.

You should be complaining about Sonya and Shang Tsung more than this. Kang looks the same as he always has.

Yep, Liu Kang needs all the infinite ammo he can get! Reptile has the cloaking device though...

Nope. Their revamps look good.

Oh well, I'll use him in this game if his Tier status R**es.

I was hoping they would release Captain Marvel's render with Liu Kang's. No dice. Hopefully, it's sometime before the week ends.

Beats the shit out of Shaolin Monks, Armageddon and Deadly Alliance... but unless his belt is the MK Championship title belt, I hate the fact he's wearing it. So cheesy (unless of course it's his title belt).

He won it from the Hogan. Besides...zou are right about retard Kang in MKSM.
Looked like bandages covering a headshot.

I never been a fan of Lui Kang, but he does look quit good. His best look yet, and I acutually do like belt. Glad to see there modeling the hair style (and the character in general) on Robin Shao a bit.

Kind of makes me start to wonder what an MK1 remake might look like.

That is, in fact, the best part of this render.

I'm so sick of that MK3 look. And the belt is just stupid. I wish they'd bring back that black and white martial artist getup he had as an alt in MK4.

His face and hair look great tho, best I've seen him have

Anybody notice that they're getting the stuff right that we're complaining about from the last render?

1. Cutout looks good

2. Textures look better, or more realistic-like....more fitting.

3. Pose makes sense.

4. Getting rid of the stereotypes....they're trying to anyway. Liu Kang doesn't look like the "super-Asian" guy. Just looks like a regular Asian dude.

5. They're "changing them", but they're leaving them alone as far as design. The MK2 design was the best one so, at least always have that one as an alt if they ever drastically change his primary.

6. They fixed the hair problem. Liu Kangs hair looks good.

Just a couple things anyway..

=================

I like the render. More than the design this time too. But of course, I also like the design. I like the ropes, and the belt. Eh...the belt does seem a little obsessive at this point, but at the same time, it's fitting. I think they may have wanted him to have a belt, but they toned this one down in comparison to how much the Scorpion belt sticks out. This one looks plausible to be there, unlike the Scorpion belt. Needs to be toned down even more though...

They also have him in PANTS. Instead of those crazy skin-tight trousers like they did with the rest of the males. Much appreciated.

His face isn't all fucked up, lol. Looks like the re-creation of the real face of someone I met before. Which is also good. However, maybe it's the angle he's facing or something, but his head seems a little small for the rest of his body. No big deal though. I just noticed it looks a tad off.
----

I agree with Zentile and Chrome on this one. Liu Kang looks much better than the MKSM version of himself. And I'm quite pleased that they didn't go with the Zombie. Wouldn't have come out right anyway iMo. The graphics method they're employing for this game so far isn't ready for that. Needs to get a lot better (technique, program, or whatever) in order for us to be able to appreciate a recreated Zombie Liu Kang.

1. Anyway, my only "problems" with this render is about his shoulder-to-neck. Looks like that muscle is too big, even considering the angle that his body and head are turned.

2. And then probably how big his belt and bulge is. lol Tone both of those down. The bulge thing, I can give that to the ladies. They can have that. But that belt needs to be toned down. Y'can't move around with something that big on your waist.

3. And then finally, is those arm pads. I like the ones that wrap around instead of them being fastened to his arms by a sort of "belt" mechanism.

4. Oh, the arena mock-up looks better in the older games.

===

That's all though. I like it alot otherwise.

I don't think the belt was necessary at all. Is he the heavyweight champion of Mortal Kombat now or something now? It's just oversized, and if it is meant to be a "title belt" for the champion... that whole concept is really stupid in my opinion. Martial art related "belts" aren't oversized, wrestling belts are. Hopefully he's not going to fight wearing that thing.

I agree. Those are his traps'. The left one looks weird, too big I believe.

I like it a lot.

Its the best he has looked to me in a while. However, I kinda agree with the whole belt thing. I think it is a TAD too big. Especially since its a pretty bright gold color, it brings more attention to it.

However, I think he looks great! Pleases overall smile

Yea, that aspect of him looks better in the MKSM render.

*click the pic*



Needs to be a "wrap" or something.
