I'd probably explode if I made it that far. lol

With Oksana, I was, in the end, pleased that people at least liked her story. This time, I think it's a matter of how well people can take change. And secrets.

Can't wait to see your character, though!

I'll have an image, but I'm not sure what I'll be using.

Probably Heromachine again, or maybe Soulcalibur. We'll see.

I'm thinking of making a revised version of Cerastes as well, instead of a whole new character. To be honest, I feel empty for ideas for a new character and those I can think of have already been done before. Cerastes isn't a whole new and original concept either, but he is based on an OC of mine I've had for a long time now, so I already have a connection with him, if you know what I mean...

I loved your Ekimaru drawing! :D A really nice take on a ninja character without copying the MK cookie cutter ninjas.

A method I use for coming up with MK characters is taking a look into the series' storyline and ask what I think should've been done differently.

For example, let's say you didn't want Ashrah want find the Kriss sword and gain her freedom. Well, you're gonna need someone to make that happen. And poof! You've made your first step into creating a new character.

With strategic planning, you can even make the character have very little to do with Ashrah. He could be a member of the Tekunin sent to the Netherrealm to collect an artifact, and was assumed by Ashrah to be a demon. Or she could be a fallen goddess sentenced to Hell by the Elder Gods for a crime she did not commit, and kills Ashrah out of anger and rage, making the Elder Gods further believe she was guilty.

All you need is the smallest scenario, and everything else will come naturally.

I am thinking of bringing him back indeed. Not changing anything canon wise ,but I will try to DEVELOP his character further. (story-wise , and therefore due to the changes of his story maybe his special moves and appearance may varry)

Imagine the differences between Sub-Zero in MKDA and Sub-Zero in MKD.(subby was such a badass in MKD (ancestors armor) and such an old man in MKDA (the dragon meadallion) )
Still the same character but with vastly different appearances,yet still holding to what makes the character iconic.

Also I think I may draw some characters that catch my interest,like last time , I know I am not the best of artists but when my exams are over I will try to better my artistic skills .

I haven't posted on a MK site in years... I didn't even know this contest existed. I have a couple characters I created half a decade ago, I plan to edit and enter one of them.

Its been a while I haven't even played MK9 yet.

At least the winners will actually receive their prizes this time around. That's always better than fantasizing about what it'd be like to receive a prize for something into which you put the time and effort with the ultimate hope that your entry earns you at least a share of the spoils.

And if the the answer is yes, can I make a theme song for my character?
