I like this fake, although there are a few things I don't understand.

Bad points:
I don't really get why you have the extra names by the first name, like you have Sub-Zero next to Ermac, I don't really get it.
The Abyss edit looks a bit cartoonish.
You used that SAME ERMAC SPRITE that everyone uses, and it doesn't really look like it has much relevance to what's happening in the fake.
No shadows.

Good points:
Although cartoonish, the edit of Abyss is flawless.
The background edit is fantastic, what with the acid flowing through the cracks in the ground, and the spirit rising from the background.
You included a win mark.

Overall, I give this 4/5.

The point is that it's a MK VS Marvel cross-over. In the VS Marvel series, players have 3 characters each.

The Abyss edit looks a bit cartoonish.

Not half as cartoonish as he looks in the actual game(MvsC2). I tried to find a balance between the two styles. By the way, I created the sprite from scratch, using a photo of an ancient armor.

You used that SAME ERMAC SPRITE that everyone uses, and it doesn't really look like it has much relevance to what's happening in the fake.

Granted. I just liked the look of it. The idea is that he's taking a euphoric winning pose.

No shadows.

Look closely.

Thank you.

OMG, I'm sorry, I forgot about the lifebar situation, I haven't played the game in such a long time. Seeing as it was intended to be an MK vs Marvel crossover, it's now a 4.5/5. The only thing I don't like is the Ermac sprite. Maybe if you edited that slightly, by making him look in Abyss' direction, but still be celebrating, that would be perfect, because at the moment, it looks like he's trying to measure how tall the guy is.

If this is really suppose to be like the Marvel vs games, there should be three lifebars instead of just one with three names.

I gotta hand it to you though, that Abyss sprite looks AWSOME compared to the in game one. Nice job.

Actually, there are. Look closely. It might even require you to increase the brightness of your computer screen, but there's really three on each side.

Hey uncle ACJ, this is pretty good for your first fake. I like the Marvel VS. series you gave to it (3 chars. and life bars).
Good job. 4/5 Dragon Points for you.


Peace.

pretty good .

nice little effects and edits here and there.

the best part is the way you did the lifebars

i see so many vs fakes with three bars and they all look gay. this time i like it, the way you made them smaller and under neath each other, never played that other game, not sure if thats how they made them, but good job anyways.

I like the green "goo" stuff gushing out here and there. But I noticed a little areas that are blurred, which I don't enjoy as much.

Crap, I totally missed that that was Abyss from Vs. I thought it was some cheesy "original" MK character you made up.

Sorry about the low vote

Nice job for a first, however:

Bad points:
The armor looks like it is from D2 and not aligned properly
The abyss spite is huge in comparison to the Background

Good Points:
Everything else about it!

great job ACJ for a great first fake.

Have you ever seen him in the game? I wonder...

Thanks for the compliments, people!



This fake, and many, many others (from FatSatan, Murdoink, MaxDam, Venomark, d_collard and Black_Saibot) will be featured on the new Mortal Kombat Kourier that will launch on it's second anniversary.

The Bad:

- The Ermac sprite seems to be overused in fakes, although it blends well with what's going on in the fake.


The Good:

-That BG is awesome, very good effort.

- The Abyss sprite that you made/edited is very good.

- I like that neon green effect you put on the dead body. It blends in very well with the BG.


This is a very good first fake. I hope all the other fakes you'll make in the future will be as good as this one. I give it a 9.5/10. Good job. wink

Nice job on the goo on the ground. I like how it flowed through the cracks. But i just dont get why are ther names on the side of the player and the opponent. Is it like a tag-team battle? But I like everything else about the picture so i give u a 4/5.

If you are going to bump a thread this old. At least do it with a more constructive critique.
