Now before everyone kills my FIRST Fan Art submission (just had to make it clear that I'm a rookie heregrin), I have a couple things to say first.

1st: I didn't get to write in Mao Shi Bais' complete bio, so what's there is abreviated to a significant degree.

And...

2nd: This is my first coloring attempt, so if you all consider it shitty, this is why. My b/w sketch looks much better that this P.O.S.grin I'll post it later in the day.

Okay. I'm gonna shut my yap now and let everyone tear it to shreds.

MK7 Concept Character: "Mao Shi Bai"

Name: Mao Shi Bai
Origin: Outworld
Alignment: Neutral
Allies: None
Enemies: Shang Tsung
Styles: Hawrangdo, T'ien Shan Pai(Wu Shu), Pudao Sword & Shield

Story: Long ago, before Liu Kang was Shang Tsungs’ mortal enemy, the nomad warrior Mao Shi Bai, also known as "The Wolf", was his greatest adversary. If fact, of all the warriors Shang has faced, Shang feared Mao Shi Bai the most. Mao Shi Bais’ fierce aggressiveness in combat was to be feared of all who heard his name.

Having been in countless campaigns, his supreme mastery of his sword & shield style was unmatched on the battlefield. Having found no further satisfaction for battles, Mao Shi Bai decided to roam the realms seeking worthy opponents to challenge his skill. Though a powerful warrior, Mao Shi Bai upholds a stern sense of honor, even after defeating an opponent by giving him/her a proper burial where that had fallen.

It was this trait that led him to an old sorcerer who had recently been attacked and lied dying. The old sorcerer told Mao Shi Bai of a powerful sorcerer who had killed his eldest son and consumed his soul. Both disgusted by the savagery of the attack and intrigued by the skills he used to kill the warrior, Mao Shi Bai vowed to avenge the old sorcerers' death.

With the ability too see into the soul of Mao Shi Bai, the sorcerer endowed upon Mao Shi Bai what remained of his powers that made him immune to all forms of sorcery. Then finally with his last breath, he whispered the name of the one who had killed him. Shang Tsung was his name.

After burying the old sorcerer and his son, Mao Shi Bai eventually caught up with Shang Tsung and challenged him to Mortal Combat. What Shang was not prepared for was the savagery of Mao Shi Bais’ attacks and his newly endowed abilities that made him invulnerable to his sorcery.

Finding himself clearly no match for Mao Shi Bai, Shang Tsung opened a portal to a voildless realm and flung Mao Shi Bai into the opening, leaving him trapped there forever.

It is when Shang Tsung recently re-appeared in Outworld, a weakend Quan Chi, seeking revenge for Shangs’ betrayal and knowing of Shangs' encounter with the legendary Mao Shi Bai long ago, used his sorcery to open a portal to the voidless realm and free Mao Shi Bai from his prison. Finding himself once again in Outworld, Mao Shi Bai was told by Quan Chi of Shang's existence and where he could be found.

Knowing the he was mo match for Shang in his present state, Quan Chi chose to exact his revenge upon Shang Tsung by releasing his forgotton enemy upon him once again.

Now to uphold his vow and his honor, Mao Shi Bai seeks to complete his quest to kill his ancient foe, Shang Tsung.

The description I posted earlier should explain things pretty well about his rivalry with Shang.

Thanks doode. I had to make someone his enemy. Shang naturally came to mind.

EH! I'm not too sure about the coloring. EH! There goes my perfectionist mind again.tongue

Yeah! I'm gonna post more stuff for sure. But DAMN IT! I fucked up on the texturing and I didnt realize it until I posted it.furious One bif thing that caught my eye was the 'wolf' character not being apart of the texture.furious

*smacks himself in the head*

OH BUGGER!furious FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK!! Oh well... sad


Basically, I have more than one drawing style. I chose to try a somewhat looser style for Mao Shi Bai so it would be easier for me to color it. My loose drawing style isn't much to look at, but, AS TT knows from seeing my other concept character, my tight style is much better. I'm more at ease when I'm putting in extensive detailed shading and characteristics. I need to work on my loose style more.sad

Welp! I'm gonna try working with more colored work in the future, but until I'm more confident with it, I'm gonna post more b/w stuff than color.wink I'm also gonna re-do Mao Shi Bai in a more detailed style so I'll feel more at ease with it.

OH! And TT, that other dude I showed you before will be on his way once I get his story down!wink

Xie xie to everyone.
