Although I must admit that the drawing is good, I don't like Scorpion's look very much.
Why care about people if they're not bloody and on your carpet right now?

Jax007, this is truely some nice artwork that you keep presenting to us. The picture is really good. I love the way you drew sub-zero. The detail is very nicely done. The pic is clean as hell as with all of ur other pics. I also must say that I like that stance that subby's in, very cool in deed. The only thing I see wrong with it IMO is his leg looks too thick. I think this could be because of his pants, but a little thinner could have look better IMO. As for scoripin I love everybit of it. The stance is just perfect. I love how you made him look like something other than a ninja, but still kept the ninja essence. The flaming skull is a very nice addition(man u gotta teach me how to draw flames like that). The sword on his back is like the cherry on top of the entire pic. Very nice job as usual...5/5 dragons.
EDIT: I just looked it somemore and the leg isn't too thick, I only seen it that way because the cloth gave it that appearance. So, yeah, good pic again keep up the good work. I do have a request though, I would love to see you do a pic of Shao Kahn.

Well the drawing is great. Scorpion looks too much like a Marvel superhero type character. It's probably the brand and the bare chest more than anything. I do like that he is still partially ninja. Looks like he's changing his style but not totally.

Great job as usual Jax007. I like both the looks you gave them. Sub-Zero definately looks more like a ninja. I like the pose you gave him. Scorpion looks really good. I like the fact that you gave him his skull head instead of his regular one. I also like the symbol that you put on his chest that means Scorpion. 5/5 from me.

Okay, you should really think about sending your stuff to Capcom or Midway cause your stuff is that good. It's a clean clean and sure style that I'm sure people would pay good money for you to work for them.

On with the critique...

You never disappoint woth your submissions. I like How you changed Scorpions look from a ninja. It's a stong canidate for an alternate costume along the lines of Rayden's alt costume in MKDA.

Subb's is so badass I'm friggin giddy! grin I like the pose you gave him as well.

Some side or 3/4 head treatments would have been the extra layer of icing on the cake, but I guess it would have been to much to thorw in one piece.

As always... great job!

Rating 5/5

WOW!! These look awesome! I love what you’ve done with Scorpion and Subzero looks mad as well. My only complaint would be that Subzeros stance looks a little cramped which could possibly be because Scorpion is taking up the lions share of the page, but he looks freaking sweet so I can excuse that.

5/5

PS: I hope you don’t mind if I take a shot at coloring it.

Thanks peoples.

Sub-Zero has his Dragon stance and Scorpion his Hapkido one but the stances aren't 100% accurately drawn like in the game though.

Also, I think this look for Scorpion would fit better as an Alt, like someone mentioned.

Man, that's pretty cool. I like it except for Sub Zero's mask, is too simple but everything else is just perfect.
I agree that Scorpion's look could be better as an alternate costume.
5/5 Dragon Points.

Damn, that's awesome, as usual! Very clean, excellent technique, and both costumes (especially Scorpion's) are just awesome. Just a couple problems I see with it. For one, I don't like how the external outline looks darker than the outline of the details within the bodies; it just looks awkward to me. Also, as izz_daman said, Sub's left leg does look a little too thick; even if it technnically isn't, the outline of the cloth makes it look like it. Scorpion's left leg also looks a little off to me.

By the way, am I the only one who doesn't like Sub's stance? I think the right hand is up too far; it looks to me like he's having a heart attack, and clutching his chest. But, maybe that's just me...

Excellent job, overall. 5/5.

This is excellent. I like it very much. All your work is very great. I really like sub-zeros look, you made it look really good the way you used so much detail. Scorpion is pretty cool too. I love his outfit itself. And the sign on his chest. The only thing i dont like is his skull head. The skull you drew is awesome and all but i never liked him revealing his head. 5/5

This is a cool picture. Sub-Zero looks really good. Scorpion's design is cool too. I don't like the potition of either of their hands. I also would love to see a cool background with this drawing.
I think it is very cool spelling Scorpion's name on his chest.
The fonts (you know what I mean) you wrote in are really cool.
Overall I like it, but it would be 100x's better with a cool background!

I gotta ask, Jax, having observed your work for quite some time - how do you het it to look so clean? Do you retouch in Photoshop, or do you start in digital?

No, I don't retouch them.

What I do, is that I start drawing the skech with a very pale pencil and then retrace the good lines with a darker pencil.

That's it? In that case, how large do you work? And for that matter, what is your profession?

Amazing. This is probably my favourite piece from you. I'm not sure if the designs are the best you've come up with, but I can't find anything at all to complain about in the actual drawing.
4.5/5

And just as a formality - you wouldn't mind me submitting a coloured version of this, would you? smile
This is such great stuff, I jumped at the opportunity to colour it.
