Just wanted to explain that another reason why the fake took so long to make, was because I edited a Reptile sprite to make Mortar, not Smoke as the gray uniform may lead you to believe. I also had to do the pallette swap on Cyrax to make Sektor and Smoke, because the Warehouse didn't have their jumping sprites.
And at first, Mortar was going to be holding Liu Kang's soul, not ripping out Kung Lao's lung. But the soul sprite edit turned out so bad, I decided to change. Besides, soul stealing is so unoriginal.

Oh, and I said in the comments that I only used Paint and 2Pic, but Microsoft word deserves some credit aswell, for the blood pool and such.

Now, critisize away.

Ahh, here it is.
Few things:

- The lungs don't look like they come out from a sensible place, i.e. the mouth, I would've done the chest (being as that's where they are tongue).
- The "organ bits" coming out of his mouth are quite a distance from those on the floor, and look just a little naf tongue.
- Shadows are good, however, I would've liked to see them go up the wall as well, which is more than possible in paint. You just don't skew it tongue.
- Kung Lao doesn't look like he's in pain, but rather, quite ready to fight.

Good things:
+ The sprite edit is simple, but well done.
+ The blood and lungs are also, well done.
+ The background is nice (though I wouldn't place blue walls in the Lin Kuei hq, but thats just me grin)
+ Another good fake from you smile
+ I LOVE what you did with Cyrax, Sektor and Smoke, good job there, and the little detail of making Cyrax's tube that little bit bigger in the middle grin.
+ Background is pretty nice.

We can't really say the screen should be dark as that could ruin all the extra detail that was put into the background etc. and for all we know, it could be dark tongue.

Another good fake Zentile, do keep it up grin.

Okay, that stage looks like such a rip off from a stage I have seen from MaxDam or Murdoink. I can't remember who. I don't really like the background's patterns. I don't really know what to say. I don't like it that much.

Yes, I was inspired by Murdoink's Lin Kuei HQ, like I said on the comments. I'm not sure if it's considered rip off, but I dont really think so.

oh, and thnks TimsMK grin

Well this fatality wasn't quite what I expected but that doesn't mean it's bad. Overall I give it 4 out of 5 Dragons. I can't wait to see what's next. grin

LOL I LOVE YOUR SIG Skorpion, how will you like to combine "Mk5.org Original Gangstas" w/ "Mk5.org Original pimps"?

Zentile you did a good job trying to make a background but to be honest I kinda don't like it. There some patterns that don't really connect maybe is the colors but I kinda like the way the cyborgs are like that except for the color that covers them maybe you should make it transparent.
I kinda don't lie the idea the blood looks kinda little and to fake and the way KungLao is like that eh me no like grin but good attemt in making a sprite your getting there smile

Actually, the pods where Cyrax, Smoke and Sektor are in are very transparent.

Thnks for the tips and for the criticism. I'm sure my next fake will be better than this one.
Oh, and can anyone guess how I created the pods? grin(the parts holding the glass around Cyrax, Sektor and Smoke. I dont mean the transparent part)

Another good fake from you, I must start by saying I LOVE this background. Seriously, you can produce some great ones in my opinion. I like how you didn't just rip off the original background, and made the cyborgs in this sort of 'curled' position. The screens are also a nice touch, pretty good idea I think.

The Mortar sprite is pretty good, he's pretty well detailed, but I would have liked to seen some sort of design on his belt or mask. But its still better than alot of plain ninja edits I see around sometimes. I also LOVE the idea of this fatality, the chain looks in good position, but like tim said, he should have pulled the lungs out through the chest. It would have taken alot of precision to pull out lungs through someone's mouth tongue. Though, the lung itself looks great. Shadows start good, but they need to also appear on the back wall.

Lifebars are good, though I still don't like transparent ones, I still think these are nice. Maybe a little too short though, the timer just seems lonely to me. As for Kung Lao, he doesn't appear in real pain, in fact he seems rather mad to have his lung removed! All in all though, its pretty nice.
