Okay then, a good fake for a first, but it's a little unoriginal, I mean, it's the spear tearing off limbs, basically.
But it is well executed, however there are a couple of things:

- The text in the lifebars looks odd for an MK3 fake, it should ideally be the MK3 font (all MK fonts can be downloaded from the warehouse).
- I think you should've included the "Wins 01" texts with this, which would make it that little bit more perfect.
- The texts in the lifebars should also be in all capitals (and italic, MK3, but just use the font).
- You're gonna hate me for this one, lol. The win marks are a tad too far apart, lol, sad isn't it.
- I learned something new about MK3 fakes recently, the lifebars do actually do dark with the background as well. I didn't know, but there we go, the lifebars should be dark tongue.
- Shadows are very good, but I would've liked to see them on the crumbled wall that's before the sand as well (they would go vertical).
- Idea is a little bland.
- Liu Kang looks like he's enjoying this, lol, make him look a little more in pain. He's also not dead, rethink your title, lol.

Good things:
- Nicely executed.
- I like how the thing in the background makes the unused space to the left of Scorpion look used, lol, good thought there.
- Blood, very nice, not excessive and the blood on the floor is very well done.
- The sprite you used for Liu Kang is a very good choice (just change his face slightly grin)
- Everything else is in order.

Nice fake for a first, nice that you put thought into everything, and edited alot of things.
Good work, looking forward to a second.
But uh next time, less of the extra white space please, lol.

I think this is pretty good for a first. Nice to see a good artist venture over to the fake world. You did MUCH more editing than most do for their first fakes, and I praise you for that. All that extra white space is a bit strange to look at, nothing too major though. You got alot of the small details in, Win tokens, shadows, but the font in the lifebars should be MK3 font. This looks like just ordinary font, courier or something, it just doesn't ever fit in on an MK fake.

Your choices in sprites were good though, I like how Liu Kang looks as if he's hopping around, lol. But a face edit could have perfected it. Blood is PERFECT, just the right amount considering the damage that has been done. Scorpion choice was good as well.

I like the little touch you did with the BG, wouldn't have been as good without that in my opinion. And like I said, its not that common to see some sort of edit on the BG in a first fake. This is pretty good, you seem to have talent in fakes as well as drawing.

Im not sure about this one, i expected better from u zombie. This fake looks like it is soo simple, nothing in this picture catchs my attention. I think u should try to add some of your own art to it because ur good at that, then i think ur fakes could be alot better then this.

Hmmm... not bad at all for a first. I like how scorpion is in a different pose for his spear then usual. I also think it's kinda neat how you used those pillars and made them look like gallows. Good work.
