Hmm.. well it is drawn very nicely, but it doesn't have all that much originality to it. His chest design reminds me of Hsu Hao, or Kano perhaps. The gloves on his hands are nice though, they give him something of his own. His body is structured extremely well, the proportions look perfect to me. The pants seem original, but unfortuantely this picture isn't a full model. Hairstyle is neat, but with this sort of rugged look, it would be sort of interesting if he could be wearing something else on his chest. Maybe something like an alteration of Kenshi's alt. in MKDA would look nice on your character.

But... originality in these characters is also defined by their story. You aren't online at the present moment, but I am interested in hearing the story behind your drawing. As I said, its a very good drawing, but some more details on the costume would be cool.

Another good drawing, as always tongue.
However, I think by looking at this character, he seems just a bit too plain. Your others had something distinctive. To me, he just looks like a plain warrior. You know, well built, with the gloves, and long hair.
However, the story may change my view when it's posted.
But still, you've drawn him exceptionally well, like always. Proportions, the face hair, and as Crow said, the gloves are cool too.
I'll wait until the story to judge on the originality, but still, nice pic smile.

This his bio. Its pretty long, but I thought it was pretty kool.

Kain was a former elder god who became mentally insane. He was ensnared by a mysterious plague which caused him to lose insanity. It was strikingly odd for a god to engulf a disease. The other gods took it quite seriously so they sent Kain away as far as possible, Outworld. While subsiding in Outworld he became more archaic. He killed many innocent civilians in the most disarranged way. Many warriors came to put an end to his onslaught but they all failed miserably. Years past and Kain was becoming more violent. The days became darker as Kain's rain of terror continued. Kain didn't care who he killed, may it be children to babies to young pre-mature women, he slaughtered everyone. Everyone thought this was the end, the apocalypse, no more redemption. All faith was lost until a unknown warrior came to challenge Kain. This mysterious warrior showed no fear and had power to match the god. Everybody watched in awe as both powerhouses engaged in a unrelenting battle. The war between two beings lasted for two whole years. The entire fight was repugnant to watch and both unyielding forces wouldn’t give up. Time seemed to deliberate, weeks were months, days were weeks and seconds were minutes. At the end of two years, people watched in dread as this arcane warrior finally killed Kain. The Elder Gods were overwhelmed with fear as they saw a mere mortal subdue the strongest of all gods, Kain. The esoteric warrior had many twinges and gaping cuts. He was bleeding to death and there was nothing the human race could do. The Elder Gods were marveled over this prodigy, compared to the gods, the gods looked obsolete. The Elder Gods wanted no one to ever harness this warriors potent ness. After a long deliberation they came to a conclusion that it be best if they took away this warriors gifted powers. The warrior then was struck with a beam of light, his powers were then gone. Feeling frail and decrepit, he fell to the ground and took in his last breath. The warrior was given a ceremony worthy of kings. He was then buried on holy ground. As for Kain’s body, even though Kain’s spirit has left his godly form his body wouldn’t decompose. Instead , Kain’s body was sealed in a temple which held ties to the occult. Two thousand years later(Current Time), Shang Tsung was told of this old mothers tale and wished to seek it out. Shang Tsung was prosperous in discovering the body but was thwarted when he found out that the bodies spirit had left long ago. Shang Tsung searched high and low for Kain’s soul but reluctantly failed. Instead Shang Tsung decided to use a substitute, a soul with great potential and fighting competence. The spirit he chose was none other than Sub-Zero(MK1). To make sure that Sub-Zero wouldn’t abuse his new found powers, Shang Tsung implanted two bolts in his chest which sapped and limited the powers of his new body. The bolts also brought great discomfort and pain to Sub-Zero. Shang Tsung made a deal with the Lin Quei Ninja, if he can kill his brother(Sub-Zero MK2-MK:DA) and get the dragon amulet Shang Tsung will release his soul from the disoriented body. Sub-Zero unfortunately accepted, he would do anything to kill the throes he feels.

And interesting. A nice idea, and a very detailed storyline. Definately makes the character seem more interesting.

I agree with most people here in that it's a nice drawing, but needs a more original name and costume design. I'd like to see it completed though. Very nice storyline by the way. I can't wait to see it in a final form. Need any editing help, I'm available ;P. 4/5

How do I post a picture in my post? I can post a more updated drawing. As you can see the drawing is a bit of mess so its a bit of sketch.

The sketch is great. I'm glad you explained the chest piece as it made no sense at first. I wouldn't worry about cleaning it up too much, the rough look is very cool to my eye.

The story:
First you've got to work on the grammer. Everything was actually spelled right, just the wrong word in a dozen places. I dunno, maybe French is your native language. wink

Anyway, second, you know who I was waiting for to be the conquerer of Kain, Shao Khan. That would be a cool backstory for Khan if he came to power as the savior of Outworld after defeating a great evil only to become a greater evil himself. Sort of like Hitler. Or even better, say he united the Shokan and the Nomads to create an army great enough to overthrow Kain the fallen insane Eldergod. Afterward all that power corrupted him to evil.

Fell free to use that anybody, course you were talking about Kain not Khan grin

Take it easy

One have to be a registered user of the pictures current place, before one can see it... right now, it's a red X!

But your first main art looks cool, but the design should evaluate, and I'm sure that's what the other picture contain, though I am not able to see it!

The storyline is very awesome, reminds me of Drahmin somehow!
