the ice block is the best even tho it sucks

you could of found something much better for the BG

no life bars or timer.
no shadows

uhh,......

the blue ice shooting form subs hands needs lots of work,
put more layers in the ice
to give it depth and feel
different shades not just a flate color

hope this helps

Ok, I must say I don't like this one nearly as much I did the original version. I understand about the lifebars, but you could have just used an actual version of lifebars from the warehouse, the lack of them makes it look bland. Though, you are aware, and left them off purposely, just know its alright to use the lifebars from the actual game if you want. Shadows would be nice, with that program that I am assuming you have it should be quite easy to make them, and even if you can't in it you can always use Paint.

I'm not really wild about the BG, it has that 'neon' like effect going on again. Too bright for MK I think, and the floor really doesn't fit well with it. The quality isn't very good either, especially on the floor. Ok, now for the actual fatality. I quite liked the original version, but this version most defiantly isn't as good. I'll post in the original version, and tell you why I think that version is better than this for the most part.



Ok, well to start the actual ice cube isn't as good. The shape in this redone version is not as cube-like as the original. Also, that nice 'ice' effect is gone from the edges of the cube. It doesn't really look like ice anymore, rather just I cut out texture. Also, on the first version, the base of the ice was done very well, you could see it had a bottom. Here, on the 2nd version, like I said earlier, it just looks like a cut out ice texture to me. I'm not sure why you switched the effect on Sub-Zero's ice that he's using, the original looked MUCH more like ice than this one does. This looks alot more like oddly colored water to me, the orignal did have an icy feel to it in my opinion. Also, Sub-Zero and the ice aren't lined up. He's too far back on the fighting platform to be preforming this, and have the ice go where it is going.

The only improvement this version made was an attempt at giving Stryker an icy feel. Which, was pretty well done, though I'd like to see that implemented back into the original, as I like the effects a great deal more than I do here.

hmm... well u know about the life bars and other stuff, so i wont get into that. I like the backround ok, it wouldnt look so bland if it had life bars...cough cough. The ice effect looked a lot better in the first one, this one looks like you cut out everyhting from a scrap book, or something, i must say you should hae stuck witht the original.

Yes, it is worse than the first, I'm afraid.
Here:

- Now, you may be going for the lifebars dissapearing like in MKDA, however, this isn't MKDA! This is UMK3 sprites, and should have the appropriate lifebars.
- You always seem to forget shadows, lol. I don't know how you can forget, once you do them once, it's like you never forget them again.
- The cube, terrible in comparison. There's no proper edges on this one, it needs to smooth out, and "fade" (if you will), out.
- The new ice effect, just no, lol. It doesn't look at all like ice. It should be shaped more like, well, ice or water, and have a better texture.
- The background, ick. It all clashes with itself, lol, too many colours.

The original was much better.
Remember to include some shadows every next fake as well, lol smile.

Well, I think most of the bad parts of this have been said. But I do like the color choices, very yummy. Though I believe that's just a Photoshop trick, I like the background. I with this had have been hand-drawn, then I think it would have been great.
