I think this artwork is phenominal. It looks really good. Cant really find anything negative about it. The only thing i didnt really like was never mind. Awesome job. 5/5

That's fucking beatiful. You did an outstading job on his face expre-ssion and you actually put more details then in the game. Notice how in MK4 he looks skinny but here you showed him buff. Flawless. 10/10.

I like the coloring very much. I must say the body does not look great to me. I like the skinnier kai, but thats just me. For coloring: 5/5, as a whole: 3/5.

I can draw him skinnier, but I like the body builder look better. Personal preff.

After I painted Kai, I noticed that I need to learn how to paint cloth and skin more realistically.

So I looked up an awesome Digital Cloth and hair paiting tutorial for Photoshop, and it helped a LOT. Some of you might want to try it out.

Here is my result, after the first try at a 100% Digital painting.

So this is all color, no pencil or ink.

It's the first time I try to do something like this.

I'll probably use this tecnique to color my next fan art. I think it looks much better and more realistic.

I just have to work on making it look less blurry.

That looks great, except the left side of the chest looks a little wierd; I don't know how it should look, but it doesn't quite look right. Also, the veins on the right arm and side of the chest seem a little out of place, as the rest of the pic has kind of a "gritty" look to it. Other than that, you did a great job on the anatomy and the details.

Awesome work. The effects really get toned down when they are done in the game. This really puts some power behind Kai's fireball.

That tutorial is great for the hair by itself. The technique for the individual strands is so simple I can't believe I never thought of that before.

The only thing I would add to the clothing technique would be a texture of some kind. If you look at her gallery you will notice most of them have the same shiny satiny look to the fabric.

The muscle definition is very realistic.

wow Great job on Kai doode!

Hey! Have you tried using custon brushes to shade your work. I normally think of different shapes that could give my artwork a different personality and define them as brushes.

A hairlines for example. I make hairline shapes of varying thicknesses and use them for shading. I've found that each shape can gave a single image a diferent personality. Thank goodness for layers! wink

Great job on the details, the coloring, the lightning and the particles of the fire. The thing that makes the drawing even greater is the veins, It rules. I have the impression that that the head is a little too big imo.
Like you mentioned, it is your personal preference to have him more muscular. I prefer the oposite but that is your personal choice.
5/5!

The only difference in brushes that I use is mainly the size.

I use the Paint brush to block in the colors, so it's a solid shade, then I round it out with the air brush.

I set the air brush to dissolve to make particles like in the fire.

I also use different layer styles, for example multiply, overlay and soft light, and normal.


For the fire, and the color test with the pink cloth I used the Smudge, and blur tools.


Then I used different shades of color with the air brush to round it out, I use then dodge and burn tool to bring out highlights and dark shadows.


Lastly I put some Red and Green shadows on the arm to give it a little more life. Almost all the layers were set to overlay, some with different opacity settings.

Wow, man, I really like it. It' looks pretty cool. Man, I love the fire and I notice the vains in his arms, they look great. He looks better that way than skinny like in MK4.
Good job.

Looks great. Isn't the head a bit big, though? It might be just me. 5/5

I used the Airbrush, the smudge, burn, dodge and the paint brush.

I also used different layer settings for different effects.

I set many of the layers to "overlay"
