Well, I don't think I would be calling her a demon chick, she looks like she would kill me tongue.

Still though, I quite like this.
No doubt the most distinguishing feature are the wings, bold, big, and noticeable. They are very well done.
I also like the design of her dress/gown. It seems very demonic in it's design, and the way it flows, and rests on the ground.
I'm not so keen on the whole three fingers deal, lol, but she is demonic I guess, so what the hell.
I do also think she could look a bit more evil, lol, and perhaps we could see some more detail to the face. Is that a mask, or is it the shape of her head? Either way, I would definately like to see something more of it.

I must ask, what are the things on the floor?
The man with axe and socks on his helmet, and the ninja snake? Lol. Servants to her I would imagine, and they are a nice touch.

I like this drawing, nice details and design and a nice style too.
Nice work smile.

This is pretty nice, interesting idea. I do like the details to the dress, the pattern is very lovely, extremely well done I think. The idea for the way her gown 'buttons' was very cool as well, kind of a 'tuck' look. Also, where the gown touches the floor, was very well done. The upper part of her body could use some small details though, the head in particular. I assume its a mask, but even if it is I'd like to see 'creases' or folds in it. Or maybe some designs and such would have been a nice touch. I do like the hands though, I like the originality of them.

Wings are well done, very large, they cover a great diameter. I like the addition of 'claws' at the end of them, very nice indeed. I like the height of them, pretty cool indeed, different than Nitara's wings.

As for her henchmen, heh, they are pretty interesting looking. I wouldn't say you didn't do a 'background' because I would consider them to be part of the background in a way. It adds to the picture, they add to they picture, so basic idea I think. The details on them are pretty good, given they are smaller elements to the picture. I like the design on the snake one, pretty snake like pattern. The look on his face is sort of mischievous, lol, its nice. I quite like this, though it is something like I've never seen or thought about being in MK, its still cool looking.

I like that actual art on this picture. Looks cartoony with a realistic approach mixed into it. I don't see how it would fit into MK though. Anyways 4/5 dragons I give it.

The only way I see that fitting into MK is through Nitara's storyline. This is not Devil May Cry. It's Mortal Kombat. I just don't see that as a MK character. Don't get me wrong, the actual picture and art is great. But Nitara is the only storyline I could see it fitting into.

The picture is very nice and detailed. The only problem that I see is the actual character design. You drawing skills are excellent, but your imagination might be needing some inspiration. Your "Demon Chick" looks like a generic demon. She doesn't stand out enough to hold her own as a n actual character. Keep working at it, and you'll get it.

I'm actually having the same problem m'self. I've been spouting nothing but generic pictures for weeks. Looks like we both need inspiration...

Nice avatar, Hydro

Nice sig, Star

An awesome drawing, but like Hydro pointed out I don't think it won't fit to a MK World. Those 2 characters on the left and right side has preety good details like that "Grim Reaper" sword, and the 1 in the right looks like Dark Vader from Stars Wars LOL. The characers doesn't really resemble a demon but Im guessing you try to focus on 1 of those concept drwings in the krypt in MKDA. The wings are awesome, good job. The rest could use more shading, w/ your tip of your pencil do more shading here and there.

Hate to break it to ya chum, but this isn't really realistic at all. I have some criticism to impart, but it's all constructive. I'm not trying to be harsh; I'm trying to help you get better.
First, you need to plan your pictures better. It looks like you made the wings smaller to fit on the page, so next time make a small rough sketch for proportions on a practice sheet and/or start out real light and don't press hard, then refine as needed. Don't be afraid to change the position and layout of things halfway through the drawing; remember that drawing itself is a process of changing an image from the way it was in your head to graphite form.
Research is another important part of planning. Even though this came out of your head, you can grab bits of real life subjects to base your work on (it's what your subconscious did!). For example while doing the wings you could have a peek in a biology/zoology book to check on a bat's skeleton. See where the membrane is attached, where the joints are (and aren't), how long the bones are in proportion to each other (once again, you may want to make a practice sketch of this). This will make a HUGE difference in making your drawings look natural. The same goes for the female figure. Look at the proportions of the human skeleton and musculature and learn the rules of measurement e.g. from shoulder to shoulder is three heads wide, and a person is normally 7-8 heads tall. The crotch is almost exactly at the midpoint between the top of the head and the bottom of the feet, possibly a little higher for females.
In your picture the upper body looks a little awkward. Remember to draw the neck, and the shoulders extending ou at an 80-85 degree angle. Draw the shape of the ribcage and arms hanging down, then you can draw the pectoral muscles _slightly_ in front/on top of the arms. This will prevent the appearance of the arms sticking out awkwardly. The breasts you drew are kind of large and spherical; it looks a bit like she has implants. To research this, get a few women to flash you (j/k, unless you can make it happen. then try - I know it's hard - to turn off horndog mode and go into scientific observation mode.)
Seriously, though, breasts are never round and they should never be larger than the character's head. Draw them over the pectoral muscles. They extend outwards slightly further still. Their shape is a bit difficult to describe, kind-of teardrop shaped, but not quite. This is where firsthand experience would benefit you. Failing that, take a look at what some of the other artists on this site have done, like The Suit's renditions of Jade, _bathori_'s Nitara, raptorman's Sindel and Mileena, JAX007's Kitana,
or John Tobias' original sketches.
Also remember to make the hips more pronounced.
In a female the top of the hips is on the same level as the navel, and the bottom of the breasts are halfway between the navel and the tops of the shoulders.
Also remember the joints in the hands and make them more pronounced. Taper the forearms and exaggerate the knuckles if necessary. Make the claws thinner and more curved.
Finally, study how fabric drapes. You may actually want to borrow a dress and see how it folds where it hits the ground.
Once you've got these down, you can start upping the level of detail in your pix.

I hope I haven't discouraged you with this long response. As an art major, I had to learn these lessons the hard way, so I'm trying to give you a leg up.
You'll notice that the more practice you have, the less research and practice sketches you'll have to do later on. This is due to your subconscious mind drawing upon the previous experience it has absorbed (You will still need to do SOME planning). So work hard, pay your dues. It's an investment for the future.
Keep slogging now and it'll pay off later!

PS
To whom it may concern:
Please do not ever write "Hope you like it!" in the description box. It's really annoying, all you people that are doing it!

No offense, but I'm tired of people using the MK5.org Fan Art Forum to post their NON-MK artwork, but labelling it as MK art so as not to get flamed or the posts deleted. Any true MK fan can tell what MK art is and is not- this IS NOT MK artwork, just an attempt to get other's feedback and attention to a fantasy/medithisthingisdisabled drawing. Sorry to vent- but this is getting rediculous.

Thank you all for the critiques. I will take some of what most of you said into thought... Like the shading, the details and whatever else I forgot to mention. And I will probably start it again.

Draconus, You said a mouthfull! I didn't start getting good at this stuff until about a year ago!
But that's okay because I could understand most of what you said... As for looking at bat wings... I actualy DID look at a picture of a bat and study it. And I actually DID take a peice of fabric and look at it fold on the ground....The boobs on the other hand are overseized and round because I'm an 18 year old boy who is wanting to give big boobs to a drawing... But I will try to do what you said next time to be more realistic.
I appreciate your constructive criticism... it will only help me, so thank you. smile ....Oh yeah, I didn't write "I hope you like it" and my name aint Chum! wink

Last time I cheked, I wasn't the MK-Fan Art board manager...so if you want to complain about something, do it to who ever that may be. because I'm not going to change anything I do for you.

I drew this picture. Not you. So you couldn't possibly tell me what this picture is.... But I can. I said to myself, "hey I think it would be cool if MK had a demon chick! She could come from the Netherrealm to help Shang tsung try and enslave the earth!" So I drew a demon chick for MK... But let's say you are right- even if it WASN'T an MK picture.... It would still technically be an MK picture... Why? because It wasn't denied... so the one who checked this picture thought of it as an MK picture. wink

Well, who ever let in this drawing and your other "maybe could be an MK" drawings couldnt prove they arent MK related drawings, hence they were allowed in. Its just my opinion they are not, as I said. If you want to get feedback on drawings of yours thats fine- but they dont resemble anything MK/fighter related IMO. Seems odd no one else has noticed this(or didnt have the balls to say so)or maybe I'm just too picky or too old school MK.
Im not trying to OUT you or dis you. I think your drawings have potential, just not with the letters "MK" anywhere near them. I feel your drawings may find a better audience elsewhere. Good luck with your art.
ps- your reasoning of whether or not the pic was denied does not confirm/deny this as an MK drawing-so that comment is of no merit. One last question- why do all your drawings have "fighters" in robes? I take it you dont do legs? Thats one more reason I doubt the MK in your drawings. No fighters wear long robes- makes it a LITTLE hard to fight. (im sure youll probably say those arent their figting clothes)

Okay...Now were on a sensible track. had you mentioned that it was your opinion, I wouldn't have been a dick about it..... Oh, yes I don't usually do legs unless it's cartoonish. this one was an attempt at a realistic pic. Nah those robed Are theyre fighting clothes... it will make more sense when I finish the one of her fighting scorpion.
