Hmm... well there are some things I like about this. The BG is pretty cool looking, though, I think you might have just used google or something to find the 'snow-covered mountains' pic. But it fits pretty well, and the bridge is a nice touch. It looks 'icy' enough. Did you add those cracks to the bridge though, I cant seem to remember if they were there in the first place.

Anyway, the lifebars are so-so. I don't particularily like Cage's pic, that one just makes him look sort of dumb in my view. Using the MKDA one would have been better. Since the fatality is apparently over, why hasn't frostburn gone into a win pose? It doesn't look right for him to just be standing in a 'fight' position after the match is over. And 'Frostburn Wins' should be added to the fatality text. I see what I am guessing is a shadow with Frostburn, I always like to see people at least attempted to add them in. But thats not so good, check out the thread at the top of this forum entitled "Opinions on how fakes should be done." There are some helpful tutorials inside.

Ok, the fatality itself is a bit confusing. I'm not quite sure but I guessing your character stabbed Cage in the back with a sword and that caused his head to get frostbite and it fell off when he hit the ground. Interesting idea actually, and the effect on Cage looks pretty good. But his head looks a little strange, I think it could have been better if it 'cracked' into pieces when it hit the ground. It sort of looks 'deflated' like this. The sword in his back is well done though, looks great. Blood work isn't bad, but the blood near his head isn't needed in my opinion. I like how the blood is pouring out of the wound, pretty good there. But since the fatality is over, a little more blood collecting somewhere would be cool. I also like how the blood is coming on the floor, looks realistic to me. An overall nice job on the bloodwork.

Your custom character sprite looks interesting. The skin looks like it might be greyscaled, perhaps, but its not too bad, I do see some different colors used on it, cool idea to say the least. The outfit is a bit simple though, and the colors are too solid in some places. The markings you did use are very cool, you should have used more of them. I like the head, but I don't think the 'horns' are neccesary, as they are partially covered by the win text. Swords on his waist were a good addition, pretty cool fake, I think its your best yet as far as fakes go. Good job.

in response to crow, thansk for the comments. Frostburn in a japanese warrior, and his helment is a traditional look. he has a type of chain mail over his arms and has two emblems on his armor that did not come out too well. i see what you mean about the head but look at frostburn left hand. he is holding the frozen skull of cage.

just wait.

Ah, I see this now. I'm not sure how I overlooked that, but anyway.

The skull itself looks nice, good 'frosty' look to it. However, it doesn't really appear Frostburn is holding onto the skull with a good grip. It looks like you sort of slid the skull close enough to his hand to make it look that way. Small edits to his fingers, so it will look like he is holding the skull would be good. Complex fatality indeed.

The bg looks preety cool, but it should be a little bit bigger tho. I don't really like those black lines on the skull tho. The lifebars are okay. The screen should be dark. The shadows need more details. The sprite is kinda weird it looks like 1 single color for some reason, but I like the way you atleast try some basin editing yourself and didn't copy and paste. I don't like the FATALITy it should be more creative.

Overall is not bad, your getting better, good job smile

A little bit better, but I still see the black lines and i don't see why the text FATALITy should be transperant tho. Also it would look better if you made Cage on a puddle of blood intead of coming out from the right side. Get rid off that thing that looks like a pitch fork lol on Cages back.

where do you see black lines? i only see them on the JC sprite because that is the shadow for the sprite. but other than that where else?

the FATALITY text is transparent because the solidity of it looked uglier than hell and i thought that if it just started to show up that would make it look cool.

he is in a puddle of blood it is falling on both sides and the body is covering it up.

AND NO that is not a pitch fork it is a Katana stuck in his back. that is what made the fatality start.

Well, the pose is a defiant improvement, much better there. But there is an odd 'line' running beside his right arm. It doesn't look like part of the suit, because it isn't connected to it. I understand why you did what you did with the Fatality text, but I'd still rather it be solid. I know it will cover up part of your sprite if it is, but it looks odd like this, you can't read the end half to well against the mountains. But its an improvement over the original, outside of the text, I love the expression on Cage's face, good choice.

oic now, oddly enough that is part of the suit. i took the winning pose of sub in mk2 from mkwh. i did the magic brush to all of the light blue and i painted the color over all of it. so i guess it was part of the suit. i will post the better pic with the fatality solidified. thanks for the comments all.

Haha, I think this is your best one yet. The Ice bridge and background suit the character sprite you made, "Frostburn". The sprite looks good =D.

It's pretty cool. The sprite isn't the best I've seen, but it's alot better than many of the sprites I've made. The ice effect on cage looks cool and the blood looks absolutely amazing! 6.5/10
::EDIT:: I just noticed I wrote that the sprite was the best I've seen. I meant that it isn't the best I've seen::EDIT::
