I really like the Dragon King sprite, as do I like the picture overall.

One thing I always find weird with your pics though, is that everything is pixelated (like 2D old-school MK games), yet fire/energy/etc bolts are anti-aliased and have levels of transparency.
This probably looks better, but it's weird, I dunno. grin'

Anyway, great job as usual!

That's good sprite editing, but personally I don't like the design... he looks a bit Human and like Shao Kahn. I like Shang Tsung, except for his fire balls. The stage is obvious it's a recolored (or whatever you did to it) version of the Waste Land.

I like it, but the dragon king could easily be the next Shao Khan.

Keep up the nice work, MaxDam!

Thanks to all of you for the comments!
To be more exact about the Dragon King Sprite, in the sketch, he looks bigger and stronger. The most exact things about him it is his helmet and his Chest.

I like the sprite but it looks more like Sauron than the Dragon King. And the Shang Tsung sprite is really fantastic. And I really like that it's a lot of detail in the sprites.

Wow. That's some clutch copying and paste-ing work on the Dragon King sprite. I can id only Shao Khan's knee and shoulder pads- care to tell us what else was used?
The sprite itself is in good proportion. The only thing that's bothering me about it are the arms (edited from SKhan's?). They look too sharp and pixelated for the rest of the sprite. Were ya aiming for a texture? Its nice pixel editing, just could smudge the arms a bit more, or perhaps make the rest of the sprite sharper.
I imaginged the Dragon King to look more reptilian, but since its based off a sketch..

The Shang sprite, as other have commented, is excellent. The only problem I have with it is that one can't really see his face- looks like a black circle for a head (with no neck :/ ). Dunno if that's what the frame ya ripped it from looked like, but ya could have pasted on a matching frame from his his MK3/2 head.
The projectile is well done- I agree with what AcjB pointed about the effects in older MK's not really being anit-aliased. Still, looks great 8)
Nice work on the cast shadows as well. Fitting atmosphere for the background.

Looks like another great cutting and editing job, MaxDam. Very nice 👍

Do ya have that sketch with you, btw?

I wanted to add a huge Axe but I could not find any that would suit want I wanted. I made a Reptilian look of the Dragon King before, but If you see the Sketch, I didn't see any of reptilian skin. Is it really the Dragon King? Or a totally new Character/Sub-boss?. I can't really tell. (pm me about the sketch if you want).
I wanted a fog type of backgroung for the atmosphere, so I edited the wasteland stage so many times and so many things that I can't really remember.
About Tsung's face being hidden by his arms, that is the original sprite, so I didn't touch that part. I just added the chinese hat and the ponytail!

Thanks for the kind comments! I hope I answered everyone's question!

You know, now that I look again, I really love the glow on Shang's fireballs, there's just something addicting about them. *stares somemore* Really nice, *tries to give it another 5/5* tongue

Hmmm, the background should of been brighter. And the D-King's arms need to be fixed. As for Shang Tsung, I love that sprite. But, it would of been nicer to see a flame ball Instead of that, yellow light flashy thing.
Anyways, your getting a 5/5 dragons from me.
Keep up this awesome work Max smile!

That is a great pic. The sprites are great and i especially like shang tsung. The Dragon King's concept is great too, the helmet on him is pretty cool. I also like the backround, it has a cool fog effect.
