Ok, let me just say this, I have seen everything you have done (thats on this site anyway) and I didn't think it was possible, but you have outdone yourself. I mean, W. O. W. !. !. You have alot of talent and I know talent when I see it. I give this a 5 (obviously), by far the best thing I've ever seen someone post here. And for all you fools who scored this less than a 5, lets see you do something better? I would love to color this, also... however, I have no time. When you see my next entry (which should be on the site today) you will understand what I mean by time.

I had a somewhat good concept going for my Sindel & Kahn fanart but I messed it all up cause I had to really rush the coloring job. whatever, this thread is about your art and I'll stop going on about mine. Great, great job. :D

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow!!!!!!!!
HOLY SMOKES! literally
Amazing! Stunning! Perfect! Incredible! Fantastic!
Excellent! Sweet! Kickass! Cool! Crazy! Wicked!
A Piece of Art! Magnificent! Brilliant! Superb!
Creative! Flawless! Terrific! Outstanding! Resiliant! Astounding!

I am Shocked in seeing this, drooling over the whole work of art. You are a god, a master of art, my friend. I Wish you from my side and behalf of everyone on mk online that you get a job at Midway. With your talent, maybe you could draw new characters that could be used for future mk related games. Perhaps you could use the ideas from my tournament where many fans have submitted characters?
I Wish you could teach me to draw like you.
That'd be an honour.
It's almost perfect, when it's coloured, i'm sure it'll be.

Jax007, where do you work? In my honest opinion, you should seriously be getting paid for work of this calibur.
Why care about people if they're not bloody and on your carpet right now?

By far the best work I've ever seen you do, Jax. Every character looks professionally done.

But, I have two points to make:

Most importantly, I dunno why your doing a work this great, this early...I mean, we don't know all of MKD's cast yet. So it would be even better if you had waited, and added all the others. But then again, I doubt you'd be able to fit them all. :p

The one other thing? Maybe it's just the angle you chose, but Sub-Zero looks a lot more like the Shredder does, moreso then the official renders. It's not like you drew him incorrectly, but...just looks more like Shredder. It still kicks ass tho!

Oh! I would also like to take a crack at coloring this maybe? Just for fun? I'm not sure if what you posted was the final, 100% inked drawing your coloring from, but if not, I'd like the file to color. I've been straining for a project to do, and that'll keep me busy. :p

Awesome work!



I was actually planning to continue the drawing to the left (were Ermac is) with a second part that will have all other characters from the game. This part has 'Deception' on it, the other part will have 'Mortal Kombat'. But, I can't start until pictures or screenshots of the other characters are shown, of course.

If you want to color this I can send you a bigger version of this drawing. Just give me your e-mail by PM.

Also, thanks for the nice comments peoples.

THREE WORDS FOR YOU JAX:

EXC-E-LLENT

Thats got to be 1 of the best mk pictures i've ever seen.

Man they should hire you at midway or capcom sumthing like every1 else is saying because you can really do a great job.

Man they should've hired you when they were making mkda you should have done all the concept drawings and stuff keep it up.
i cant wait 2 c it colored in!
Noob... Smoke, i'll take you both on. I'll tear out your brains blast you to the Netherealm. And Dragon King, dont think you're any special.

This is magnificent, a true masterpiece in every sense of the word. smile

You should attempt making a similar picture with alternate costumes once more get revealed or something.

I've seen several of your works Jax and you are quite an impressive cartoonist and concept artist I must say. Now because I am the annoying SOB that I am I'm going to go into detail about how I feel about this particular fan art. Ok first off I'll get my few minor gripes out of the way since there is not much to complain about in this work. First off it seems a bit too cluttered, which is not necessarily a bad thing since it can hold a person's attention for a particularly long time as they explore the picture to take it all in. The only reason I would consider it a little bit of a flaw is that it can somewhat confuse or overwhelm someone who is viewing it. Anyway that is pretty much the only flaw and its not that big of one.

Anyway now on to the longer part, the compliments. The detail done on every character is very interesting and your style comes through very well. The only thing that I would suggest, and somehow I don't think my advice will be headed seeing your artworks popularity, but I'd work some dramatic shading into the picture to give it an overall dark and menacing tone. Anyway thats more a stylistic suggestion but you need no real advice on how to draw. I love the grafiti in the center spelling out "Deception" that was a beautiful touch. The picture itself is nigh flawless except for the one minor complaint but it is not enough to diminish its overall form so It gets a 5/5 from me.

As one artist to another I'd like to see you maybe take some risks in some of your fan arts, maybe using a style or medium you are not used to. It just helps to develop your already incredible skill by getting different perspectives. Perhaps using the dark dramatic shading in an ink medium for instance. Anyway take it or leave it you're still a very talented cartoonist. Perhaps you should draw for comics or maybe for a cartoon show.

Loved it of course, but there are 3 things that just blow my mind

1- LI MEI!!! for the 1st time in my life I feel an urge to use her!
\2-Sindel looks awsome!!! I lov the flowing hair, the body shape and the pose
3-How u inteligently hid Ben and Ashra's faces!!! they look mysteerious and appealing!!!

BEST FANART I'VVE EVER SEEWN (and better than a lot of original art too!)
