NOPE. Not that good at all.

The blood "splat" on Scorpion's face looks good, the blood on teh floor looks descent, but the rest could use a little bit more work.

Baraka's blades are fine, they are straight and not lopsided or anything. The pose you chose to put Baraka in is totally ridiculous... it's retarded.

I kind of like the health bar idea, but the font quality looks nasty.

A much better improvement on your original first fake.

- The text in the lifebars however, is still odd.
- If you are going to have the win texts displayed, you should also put the timer in the correct position as well, which should be inline with the wins texts.
- Those transparent lifebars again, I'm not liking the idea as it makes it harder to see how much life you have left, red on green stands out you see.
- The "Baraka Wins" text seems to be on a slope, lol, it is also a little too far down in the picture and of course, so is the fatality text.
- While that pose of Baraka is pretty good (and I think you edited it), it isn't perfect, look at the arms connecting to his shoulders.
- The pose is also kinda ridiculous, as bs said.
- The blood is very good, EXCEPT for those three scratches on his ninja "bands". Baraka is not a bear tongue
- Screen has not gone dark for fatality, however, this suits this.
- Just a few shadows faint in the background, just so they are noticeable,

Good things:
+ The pose isn't bad, just not suited to the fake.
+ The blood is excellent, but get rid of those bear scratches, lol.
+ Major improvement on the last one.

I do like this, much better than the original.

Good torchia, its an improvement over the original version.

You should leave the transparent lifebars idea alone, like is said above, it makes it hard to tell how much life is left. Plus, I'm just not liking the idea of it.

The 'scratches' on Scorpion aren't needed, they are pretty much out of place in the fake, and it would have been better without them. I'm glad you added blood this time, its not that bad. But blood spurting up from where Baraka is poking his blade through Scorpion face would have been a nice touch, along with the other claw as well. Baraka's pose... is what throws this fake completely off. Its not realistic looking, he looks to be in the middle of some mid-air attack position. Shadows, and Win tokens are still missing from the lifebars as well.

The end of the 'Baraka wins' text is noticablely slumping down at the beginning and rising at the end. Just readjust that a little and it will be fine.

Big improvement over your previous one, more original and less problems.
