Hmmm. Need to say very wicked looking. Though I like the whole idea in itself. Gj

Sorry but this is bad =/
The stage is okay but the floor doesn't seen to connect, maybe change the color os something. The lifebars look transparent...why? the text r okay there not bad. Theres to much green around ermac and Cage. The quality ruins the pic a lot. Use sharemation and get a better program or something, plz. I'll let some1 else take it from here...

WHOA my eyes.
It's very, erm, flourescent. Lol.
Here:

- That floor is extremely bright and colourful, not very MK feeling imo. MK always seems to have dark and "dingy" stages, lol. This is like an amusement park floor or something tongue.
- That glow effect is like neon! Very bright, doesn't look glowy. Just look slike a paintbrush (which no doubt it was grin), as opposed to a "glowing" effect.
- I can barely see the lifebars.
- Timer is at 99. Must have been a quick round...
- No shadows sad.
- The blood, is also like neon, lol. Try to incorporate different, and most definately in this case, darker, shades tongue.

Good things:
+ Well, some of the blood (well, on the head only really), looks okay. Could be better, with the different shades as I said earlier, but the way it flows out of the head is nice.
+ Stage apart from the floor is nice.

In comparison to your others, I'd say you backed up a couple of steps, lol. Remember, stages should be decently dark and "evil"? Lol. Also try to work on the blood. I think you've done better before, before you were introduced to this "neon" tool thingy, lol. Leave it in the dust smile.

Hmm... I have to agree, it looks like you backed up a bit. Its... very bright, and as others have said, it doesn't feel very MKish. The fatality idea is more original than I would have thought though, at least you didn't use that same old Ermac pose that I thought you would have. But the colors are a bit excessive. The blood isn't the right colors, though, if it were it wouldn't be bad. I do like the effect behind Cage's head, it would be great to see it with the correct color tones. As for the rest of the blood, other than it being too bright, it looks a bit flat, especially on the arena's floor. Sort of just look like big, undetailed splotches. Not really the best tool to work with blood, Paint is better to do that, in my opinion. The 'glow' effect glows a bit, but it doesn't glow enough to carry out the effect you intended. Its too solid, it should be a bit more transparent around the edges, a gradual transparent change of course. The 'aura' really doesn't need to be this large, a smaller area of the green would be better.

Lifebars.. aren't really so good. I can see you used the lifebars you have been using in the past, you should have left them alone, they don't look so good transparent like this. The character pics are too large, but I like your choice for the Cage pic, better than that one that makes him look.. odd. The text is also strange, its not transparent like the rest of the lifebars, and it is a bit large. And the quality around the lifebars is very damaged as well, not really your fault of course. And the timer at 99, should never be.

The BG is ok, aside from that floor. You took the red carpet, and did some sort of effect to it, its not really to good. White and blue really aren't the best colors to put down on a stage's floor. But the rest of it, looks pretty well done. Its an original idea, I'd like to see you try this again without the 'Neon' effects you used, as it would be interesting to see. Not horrible, but not good either, but you are editing alot more than you did when you first came. Keep working at it, and avoid odd effects in the future.

I'm sure you've by this point read everyone's feedback. So here's my breakdown. Great idea, nice try at editing a background, but the simple fact that you used ms paint shows through. All of their complaints stem from the fact that we would have known you used paint even if you didn't say. The colors are well, flat. There is no shading. So if you take the time to clean it up. Or learn one of the other real paint proggies. Then tak your time making it. I think it could turn out to be really great. I believe this is close to one of your first fakes, so I won't judge you as harshly. But it was obvious the problems from the get go and they can all pretty much be solved by not using paint and taking your time in another pic editor.

Yes, don't do that (copy my post), it's very annoying (though, it did make me laugh that you did it for a second time, lol).
