I actually really like it and think it's just as good as the other others you've done.

Why hasn't Midway hired you yet? This pic is amazing!
Turn on your light and they'll see you. Make a sound and they'll hear you. If you think it's scary being lost... Just wait till you're found

I see a mustache. It's just not all the way under the nose like it should be.

But I'm willing to forgive such a minor detail, in light of the fact that there's far too little Shang fan art out there and I'll takes what I can gets.

I don't like it. Where's the details of his face? I just think its horrid, sorry, but you did a good job at drawing Tsung's body but it looks like you rushed this one, 3/5.

He looks like Jafar.

Nice skills, though.

I don't think MK fans are used to art styles that don't try to adhere to standards of CG pseudo-photo realism.
Different styles infer details in different ways. The moustache is there. The face is there. It's all very vibrant and graphic! Apparenlty, a little broader perspective helps recognise that, though.

If I had a complaint, it would probably be the pose.
It strikes me as a little more Mandrake, than Shang Tsung. Not necessarily a bad thing in general. I like the idea of seeing some more familiar mystic iconography in Shang Tsung's treatment, but the straight legs with the flourish strike me as a little too fancy. I like Shang Tsung to maintain a little bit of stature. A bit more Dr. Strange, with his own strong vein. (On that note: I'm not much of a fan of this outfit. Much prefer the red robes).

I don't know what use Midway really has for a talented graphic artist (unless you have other skills), but if you aren't working up a sequential portfolio for comics, or at least working on covers or pin-ups, there really is something wrong with the world!

If I had any money I'd try to employ you myself!

Has Ahnka ever said anything nice or positive about anything?

I'm beginning to think his entire life is a sad, lonely affair where the only thing he can find or think of to do to pass the time is complain about things.

I hear excessively good things about obtuse second-tier female characters of tenuous, but noteable, importance!

You do realize I don't know what your idea of "second tier" is?
Assuming you used the word "obtuse" correctly and this isn't just another one of those times where you're trying to be a clever wordsmith and screwing it up...I'm gonna have to guess you're saying he's a...Mileena fan?

"Selective"? That's...not the word I'd use, but whatever.
Anyway, back to the artist and his art. I like your style Jax. Keep doin' what you do. Can we expect to see your rendition of Kahn too now that his render's out? There's not nearly enough fan art of him either.
