House of Pain Fake Pic Entry

This was my entry for last year's contest. Prior to this I can't even remember the last time I did a fake pic since I got into doing animations instead. Even then my last animation was in 2013. I was actually going to make this as an animation but when you haven't been in the game for so long, you get rusty and lazy. The original idea was Jax after killing Kano, then "betrays" Sonya by using Kano's own head to pressure his laser beam to kill her a la Superman/General Zod. He will then reveal himself as none other than Shang Tsung.

After the contest, I had some time to polish the stage. It was meant to help AdrianoGT for his MUGEN project. If you haven't figured out by now, my backgrounds are always inspired by DOOM. The backdrop is from MK3's Motaro's intro. It suppose to be a Shokan slaughter house. Unfortunately I don't see myself ever finishing these. Shading and editing has never been my forte.

Original DOOM marbles: MK Boss marbles:

Big ups to blacksaibot for always putting me on game since Day 1. Of course all the artists that come and gone but their body of work speak for itself, MKRocket, VenoMark, Fedgita, Saizero, etc, etc.

Great finishing move koncept for dark Jax. How did you get the marble and portrait emboss so similar?

I played a lot of Hexen and shortly after that got into Doom. That art style has always had a place in my heart and I love seeing your arenas.

The Fatality itself is quite original, but confusing as to why Jax would turn on his partner.

Thanks man. I took the original DOOM wall texture and played around with the some blending effects using the Motaro and Kahn MKT's sketches. I wouldn't even be able to reproduce this effect anymore since these were done in 2011.

Thanks bro. I been watching a lot DOOM Chillax/Slaughterfest map runs. I'll go about incorporating some ideas into stages. But as I mentioned, had I proceeded with the animation, "Jax" would revealed himself as none other than Shang Tsung.
