A little on the anerexic side, but this is cool.

Not bad, the sheer, straight cut bangs makes her look like one of those russian villain chicks in a spy movie, though. And you could probably come up with something more creative and personalized to go on the cape's clasp than the MK logo. Perhaps the Edenian Kamidogu symbol? Assuming this is "princess" her and not "assassin" her, that is.

One of these days I'd love to see Kitana in some kind of elaborate, flowing robe. In the absence of that, I actually think you've done a pretty decent job, not that one-piece swimsuits and laced bustiers set a very high standard.

In isolation, I'm not wild about the flashy nature of the stockings, and the cleavage/mid-riff window seems a bit beneath Kitana, but as a whole, it's at least much more classy than half the official designs we've seen her go through. I don't know if the cage is short-hand for a full style, but I rather like the notion of a thin over the shoulder number, or even if you modified it into a long scarf. Something that gives a bit more decadence to her flourishes, rather than the cocktail waitress look of the mesh window. (Gotta agree with RazorLeMoan. Presumably the dragon symbol's just a stand-in).

I actually really like the hairstyle!
It's a very strong and dynamic look. I like the hard lines of it, it's clean, and it'd be great to give her more of a styled look like that to contrast against a rattier, natural hairstyle on Mileena. It's stylish, but also communicates the fact that she's from a place of benefit and refinement.

My personal preference is a purple Kitana, but I think if this were taken as a suit of action, the royal blue really works. Fill in the bodysuit to be a whole piece, tone down the stockings, and work some patterns in, and I think it's a vast improvement over what we're looking at for MK2011. It might also be a nice platform for some of the layers I'd personally like to see, but that's another story.

Good job.
