Hmm, okay, this one doesn't make a lotta sense.
I mean, Sonya is blowing a kiss, and the opponent is in pieces?

- The idea is a little unexplained, you can't really gather exactly what's happend (well, HOW it's happened is more like it) by looking at it.
- The lifebars contain no character names.
- The win marks should be under the run meter, for MK3 stuff smile.
- The font for Sonya Wins isn't from the game, it looks okay, but it's better to use the in game font (which is italic for MK3 I believe).
- The quality really IS terrible. If you saved it as a jpeg in paint, then do it in another program, ANYTHING, even Microsoft Photo Editor, or something.
- The blood looks like (I can't tell because of the quality), that it's just loads of blood splats pasted all together, and it looks terrible. It would look worse if it was of better quality if you did that, if you didn't, well, I can't tell, but there is too much blood there.
- The timer above the lifebars looks odd without the win texts there.
- I think there is a shadow underneath Sonya, which isn't bad, however, you can do much better ones in Paint using the Skew tool. Then making the skewed image black.
- The blood from Jax's head is a little square, it should be more natural "drop" looking.

Good things:
+ It is nice that you included a shadow (I think tongue)
+ The blood actually coming OUT of Jax's legs and his torso is quite good.

Basically, the idea needs to be much improved one way or another, you don't know exactly what happened by looking. Keep going though.

LOL. I just have lots of free time on my hands, and if a rank increase happens, well that's just a bonus isn't it, hehe.
I guess I don't mind it, especially as it will be nice to see some good quality fakes in the future from these people (well, hopefully tongue).

Hmm... well, since I'm not sure what's going on I can't say much on the creativity of this fake. Is that Sonya's taunt, or was this a kiss fatality? Include an explanation, always, like I said somewhere else, it helps.

Anyway, on to the fake. I immediately see no names in the lifebars, and if you did put them there, they are covered and aren't readable. While the 'spurting' blood is good, I think the blood is in excess here. A little less would have been better in my opinion. I did notice the shadow as well, lol, at least you are trying it. Keep at it.

As for the originality, as it stands, is very poor. Just Jax lying on the ground bleeding, nothing special. Usually fakes when the opponent is being killed, or just has been killed, are better than ones like this.
