well this is interesting, well this looks like it is from mk 3, so u need to change the life bars, and add a run meter, also the win icons need to be the ones from mk3. Some of the props in the backround look crooked to me also, might just be me tho, i would have liked a sptie edit on Jax more than just a sprite pic, the blood coming out of kanos head looks good from what i can see, one thing i cant under stand is what stryker is shooting at, i think i know (jax kicked off kanos head and Stryker blew it up) but a descrption would of helped, because im not sure, not that bad but needs work in some areas.

Okay well, this is a bit better than a lot of 'team fatalities' that I see every so often. You have most of the basics there, but I don't particularly care for your lifebars. I think the bright blue really clashes with the rest of the lifebar set up, and even the fake itself. Since this is a MK3 type set up, it would have been better to just use the default lifebars, or edit those lifebars instead of the MK2 lifebars. The run meters are neccesary I suppose, if you want it to feel 'game' like that is. The win tokens don't really match the brighter colored lifebars, and are a bit too spaced out as well. The timer is good I suppose, it matches the skulls tokens well enough but clashes with the lifebars themselves. I think the most important thing to remember when creating a custom lifebar setup is to make sure it all flows together nicely. But I do like how you have Stryker and Jax's lifebars, usually double lifebars interfere with the fake, as they take up alot of room. But really, it isn't that much of a factor since you placed them close together. The background actually isn't that bad, it may be a bit simple to make but everything looks good together. Nice sky choice, I like it.

I like the sprite positions, they all seem well chosen I think. Kano looks to be in a sort of 'falling' condition, which is a good thing. Jax looks well positioned.. but did you do any editing to his sprite? Its really just a color change, but its something at least. I am glad you replaced Stryker's gun though, the one you gave him looks pretty good and you placed it there well. You even added a 'blur' like effect, nice little detail. He looks like he is standing on the ledge, good positioning. They all have shadows too, and Stryker's is done correctly as well, good job there.

As for the fatality, I think I'll go with sandspider and say Jax kicked Kano's head of and then Stryker shot it in mid-air. The blood in the air isn't so good, I think the dropletss are a bit big for the fatality. Kano's head doesn't look bad really, though I would think more blood would be present where Jax originally decapitated him. Anyway, like I said its better than a lot of double fatalities, and it seems reasonably well thought out.

Well thanks for the comments. Yes you are right how he kicks the head off and Stryker Shoots it. I added less blood to the head, hoping that people would like the skull and brain bits instead. The jax sprite was not heavily edited (Color change and a small cut on his chest) because i didnt want attention going off of kano who i feel is the main point of the fake. as for a meter and using the right life bars, I like to mix it up and make it feel like a different game and not like a scene from an excisting game. The backround took forever trying to get the sky to look just right but i like how it turned out too. Thanks for the comments. I have a new fake that i will be posting here soon that i think you guys will really like, its a fully edited fake with great looking lifebars in a position that they are not offen in.
