Looks closer to blood than fire....I would give this a 1/5

It is quite bad.

If UR is able to make fakes by using CTRL+C, CTRL+V, then I'm allowed to critique his work the same way...

No editing done here, aside from an overlay of red put on Nightwolf for the wound effects. Those don't look so hot that way as it is. There is no wound, just red colored skin. I'm willing to bet that this wasn't edited either, but a pre-fab

Blood is the same as always (high punch spray from MK3) which is even more copy and paste... I'm surprised that no one has pointed this out before.



And really, that red stuff looks poorly done, like you couldn't decide if you wanted it red or gray at first or you used a poor choice on the layer blending options, because it is really desaturated and flat looking. It has no body or volume.

Anyway, congratulations on "editing" this by rotating Nightwolfs bow and adding a drop shadow behind Tsung's hands.

BTW, since when did Tsung have dominion over Hell? He can control souls, but not the ones he doesn't physically remove through magic... So the green power and red effect don't go well, unless of course you release this on Christmas.

Ugh.... I am so sick of people asking this question. No offense, DevilJin, but it happens on every single one of UR's threads. He posts is as a thread so people see it where it's hosted on Imageshack or somewhere like that, then later on he posts it as an actual submission so it's in MKO's official system.

Still mad that I beat you in the best background category in the recent fake kontest?

Yeah, not really liking the thought behind it, or the execution.
Very difficult to tell what the big, dimensionless red thing is; difficult to reason why it is; and as noted, not a terribly involving or creative use of the cut and paste standard. I'm not sure I have any useful suggestions.

Are you saying that's a good way to do it?...

Have I been cheating myself out of 140 instant dragon points and twice the reply opportunities?

I could give a shit less. Backgrounds have always been a weak area for me and I'd happily concede that one area to win overall and sprites.

What I am mad about is that you really show a lack of talent and fail to take criticism, constructive or otherwise, to heart and have actually gone backwards in ability since you first started, yet continue to mass produce unskillful, copy & paste fakes, then consider yourself some kind of blessing on the MK community.

Your attitude is worse than your art, and you fail to see it. Not my problem, I'm just glad I'm not in your shoes, nor do I have your fallacies in life.

That would look rather impressive if it was supposed to be some kind of mist, or at least blood, but...well, it isn't. Fire is not dark red.

Shouldn't the floor boards be broken upwards? It looks odd to me that something is shooting up from the floor, yet the broken boards are facing down.

Even if this guy still bumps his threads for more fame, it's not really good. Though the reason why I don't beleive that it's good have already been stated.

But the beauty of the piece is that it's hell fire - fire with a magical and evil twist.

As usual, a lame excuse to cover your ass for your failure at editing. Instead, you could be a man and say, "I just couldn't get it to come out to look like fire". No, you have to say it's magical... but crap is never magical, no matter who's rectum it comes out of.

It looks like smoke, not fire. You need more hues of orange and yellow next time you key up your particle program, and less of the gray, except maybe at the top where the smoke would be emanating from. The colors should also be brighter and more vibrant, like they are giving off light, not absorbing it.

Constructive criticism that will undoubtedly go ignored, because you're flawless.

I shall quote the Angry Video Game Nerd for this one: Ass!! Fuck!!

To be honest my former putting pixel-by-pixel fakes were more pleasing than this. But aside from that, what baffles me is that he still clings to the notion that his reposts have relevance.

Oh, so it is a dodgy looking blood wave?

That is not a spiral of fire; if anything, it looks like somebody took three meaty human bodies, put them into a blender, and made a pasty column out of them, leaving the skulls intact for decoration.
It just looks too pulpy and bloody to actually be fire. If you had called this an enchanted blood spire crashing through the ceiling, I'd believe it, but not a fire pillar coming from the ground.
