It's an okay fake. The detail is good, but it could have been better. I like the way it's raining, if it's supposed to be rain. It's kind of hard to see Dark Illusion though. It's good. 3.5/5

Idea is cool. The rest, meh. I even went to that other link that you said go to for a better quality pic. I still have no idea what the hell is going on. I have no direction in to what this fake is doing. The pic needs to be lightened up cuz it is extremely too dark to see anything. No matter how hard i squint i cant see dark illusion for nothin. All I see is the weapons. Work harder on lighting the picture a little more and it will be alot better.

Man, this is one dark picture, I like the rain effect and the custom faces up next to the health bar but as far as the characters are concerned I can’t make out what they are doing or really what the look like. You say you concentrated on the blood and cloth tears but those don’t mean much if a) they aren’t in context with the battle being shown and b) can’t really be seen anyways. perhaps next time use some innovation when creating a fake, if you want two dark characters fighting in a dark forest during a storm then perhaps add a few lanterns around the arena to justify the light that you need to show off the characters better.

If you have your lights being glared at your monitor, it might be hard to see. Other than that I could see the image perfect.

Thanks for the feedback. smile.

Too dark, cant see whats going on.

Everyone knows that to make a good fake you must show clearly whats going on, thats the whole point of it. wink

As everybody else has said, the picture really is too dark to see the amount of detail you've put into this.

I lightened it in Paint Shop Pro and even then it was hard to see Dark Illusion because he blends in with the background far too well.

However, from what I could make out, the fake is very nice.

Here's my old system tongue:

Negatives:
- + Marcel, Marcel, Marcel. You know I invert the colours to check for shadows grin I don't see any.
- Oh yeah, it's too dark tongue.

Good points:

+ Nice edit to the background, the floor fits in well with the original Living Forest background, it doesn't look like you've just slapped on another floor.
+ The sprite edits do have a lot of detail, although it's a shame that they can't be seen too well. They are also a little blurry however, even on the high quality.
+ Nice job using the MK:D lifebars too. If I were being picky (which I am tongue), I'd say the "fight stage indicators" are missing, but I think they're stupid anyway, so I'll ignore that grin.
+ Blood work. Pretty good, not too excessive, although the Sai maybe overdone a little. But the stuff on the tree looks great.
+ Rain effect. Yep, looks good.

Yeah, I guess.
I'm gonna give it a 7/10.
Shadows = 8/10
Less blurry edits perhaps = 9/10
And being able to see it = 10/10 tongue.

Still though, nice fake. Good job, but it takes a bit of lightening to be able to see anything at all smile.

First of all, Gororules I am not forcing you to like this image. Let alone there is the fact that I am 10 times better than you, when it comes to showing actual editing. Look at everybody’s reply, I am happy that people had the decency to be completely blunt with me. If you do not have anything worthwhile to say, I suggest you keep your mouth shut in advance.

I would have idolized you if I had known you are an awesome great fake pic maker, but then again I just realize you are not. Definitely, I am not good either but I put effort to my work and also when I am criticizing your art, I am not being shallow like you are babbling about. Poor effects? There are no effects, I was focusing on custom sprites for the first time. Fuzzy sprites? Gee, looks to me you are a bit late since people obviously already pointed out the obvious.

Lmfao?

Okay, since you obviously have an immense ego I will do a comparison:


See the huge difference?
How can you say your fake is a lot better if all you did was:

Format the image to a jpeg.
The blood is sloppy and then right blurry.
2 Sprites doing a Fatality on one person? You have way to much going on.
Purple MKII lifebars? Gee, very original smilesmile!!!11one
Shadows facing the wrong way. How can Stryker be on a higher ground then Jax?
Original Bg? Mediocre, but damn right boring and overdone.
Spites edits? All you did was pallet swap Jax's pants to greenish. But the Stryker blood is a nice touch. To bad the quality sucks.

Let's look at mine:
Original bg? Yes with rain.
Original CUSTOM sprites? Yes.
Shadows? No.
Original lifebars? Yes. (MK:D in mine).
Custom editing focus? Yes.
Quality? Good but the sprites are blurry.

Owned.

NO I have no ego, just talent

Format the image to a jpeg so I could host it at the time i had no better host

The blood is sloppy? Try he was kicked AND shot! and its not "blury" I added a bullet time wave thru the back of his head

"2 Sprites doing a Fatality on one person? You have way to much going on." its called a two on one move dumbass, been done alot before in great fakes

at least I trty makin my own life bars instead of copy paste.

Shadows facing the RIGHT way, who are you to tell me the light source? the sky is the lighting loser.
"How can Stryker be on a higher ground then Jax?" have you never heard of a railing?

better backround then one with some rain added, good one! loser...

and yea my sprite edits were ment to be what they are, its not a total sprite edit fake slapnutts.

Let's look at YOURS:
Original bg? Yes with rain. (did you even make the rain?)
Original CUSTOM sprites? Yes. (if you call makin one dark and anothing crappy then you got me there!)
Shadows? No.
Original lifebars? Yes. (MK:D in mine). wasnt it someoen else who cut those? yea I know who it was loser

Custom editing focus? Yes.
Quality? Good but the sprites are blurry. not to mention not covered in rain

Owned? you wish

Formatting the image as a jpeg drops the image color hues to extreme blurriness. I suggest formatting the image as a jpeg if you are going to submitted here, but keep the PNG quality too.

Exactly. Your idea is overuse and boring. You hardly ever see this kind of art being posted. In fact, the last decent fake pic user battle was between VenoMark vs. Minus_Zero.
gororules Wrote:

Wrong. I got the lifebars from Midget Kong and I had to edit them because he left some flaws and I definitely will not show how lazy I am by just pasting as some people rely on. I made the left/right side gray, I made the blood transparent and I took something out from the timer.

I made a mistake criticizing you for the shadows. I believe, TimsmK is perhaps the only user with the capacity of explaining shadow source. Not only is insulting me making you look like a moronic joke on the Internet, but you are also an inept child when it comes to saying a good comeback with out the use of childish phrases.

I love the idea of users, really good idea. The sprites look good, but the background could be more original imo. Nice job.

Nobody asked for my 2 cents, but I’m going to give it. Illusion’s fake has a lot of good qualities. First, the sprite edits look pretty convincing. They look a little blurry when compared to the crisp background. It maybe would have helped to have used a sharpening filter, but still, good job all around. The damage on the fighters is a nice touch. The lack of shadows doesn’t bother me, either because the background has no real light source. So you can get away it by saying the background was too dark to create defined shadows. There must be light for there to be dark... And the life bars look ok. It looks like the red is transparent? Good job. Yay for transparency. Speaking of rain, there’s none over the fighters... When I do rain, I like to do it in two layers. The first background layer is a fine dusting, then after I paste the fighter sprites, I’ll add a denser shower to add depth to the effect. Plus, some reflective puddles would have been fun.

On to Gororules. Oh good, Jax’s has a new pair of pants. I’ll be honest, I’m not crazy about this. Right off the bat, the idea is over-used and I just don’t get it. The notion of a two-against-one battle doesn’t make much sense. Kano’s head appears to be hovering above the corpse, but Striker just put a bullet into it, right? I think some chunks would have been more appropriate, plus the blood is too blurry around the edges, it looks like spots more than anything. Same thing with the blood on Striker’s pants. When fluid soaks into clothe, its color changes, but here, it’s still nice and red. It should have been a deeper color (such as a maroon) so it didn’t just look like a spot sitting on top. Finally, I just don’t get the background. Are this supposed to be UFO’s flying over Mexico City or something...? I’m a firm believer in the power of lense flares, but I don’t think that many at one time are needed. Less is often time more.

this is why I dont post my images on mk5.org, shitty reveiws. FYI the head would be floating cause jax just kicked it, You my friend have not even begain to comprehend how over your head my fake is, these is so much detail in my fakes that you would not beleive, as in fragments of bone blood flesh and many many layers, I make my fakes to improve detail editing and acualy doing somthing worthwhille, so people can enjoy a shitty sprite slapped onto a a backround they didnt make all you want. But when your lookin for someone to make the next mk game your gonna get another mk advanced.

I would have probably have chosen one of your better fakes Goro,never the less it's an alright fake.but there should be some shadows and more originality in the sprite edits.Goro's fake ain't perfect either but he did get the lightsource right IMO and I do beleive him to be a good Fake maker mostly because he's done some really cool stuff in paint wich is a very difficult program to work with IMO.I'd like to see a battle but with fakes.not words(although it is quite amusing).and I know what you mean goro but you have to except bad critism even if that person has a limited imagination or just simply can't always put 2 and 2 together.I've always thought that even if the fake oesn't always show exactly what happened that the artist could explain why this or that has happened.many a time though I figured things out and didn't need to ask why something is happening.

William hung? How cliché. Not only was that joke moronic but it definitely was not witty at all. Try harder.

I doubt you even have the right to even criticize his reply. He knows more than you do, Goro. Moreover, responses is to take as consideration not something you are going to get pissed off about.

Because of your bickering, you took my thread out of proportion. Nobody was insulting you, yet you open your mouth and that is why people who have talent verbally assailed you. More dragon points than me? How is that even relevant to anything?
