I LOVE this piece.

Its something so violent, but still, there is a strange "romantic" beauty to it.

I agree with what most people say, Scorpion and Sub-Zero look like they had a romance in this pic, but the thing didn’t end well obviously. At first I though Scorpion was holding Sub-Zero, preparing to give him a kiss, and Sub-Zero looked confused about it, but willing to “give inâ€?.

And all that is not a bad thing at all, I actually happen to like that unintended detail, you didn’t mean for the pic to look or resemble anything romantic…or gay for those who don’t get what Im saying, but I love it that it looks like that.

Its so different. If this was actually a “gay romanceâ€? portrait, I can easily say that this is a much much better work then the Jade and Kitana pic. This is one of my favorite fan art pics. Excellent job with the colors and outfits, the drawings are superb!

The art's all very good, but from a purely anatomic standpoint, the intestines wouldn't come out from a cut like that unless Scorpy pulled them. 9/10, because I'm picky for technical errors. Excellent expressions, though.

Awesome. Though, most usually smoke after sex, but disembowelment's good too. (j/k) grin
5/5

I love the picture, i will give 5/5 drags for it but i see some flaws...

First, like Mantis_Caine stated the guts would not come out from that type of cut. Second, the pattern on Scorpion is a little too fake imo. Third, the way Scorpion has Sub's head would cause the hood to be back more, but then again it is a drawing too. Lastly, the right side of Scorpion makes it look like his entire peck is larger than his head and sticks out way too much.

If you read all that and understand it thanks for listening.

I'm ignoring "flaws" in anatomy and realism of the wounds, things like that, since a) I don't know anything about that kind of thing, and b) I think its all nit-picking anyway. Your art style is your art style, and how you size things doesn't matter as long as it looks realistic enough in the eyes of the viewer. Personally, I look at that and I don't see any problems with how the characters look. I am rather picky about mood though, so I'm going to give you a 5 but with some points of contention.

Firstly, the blur on the spear and Scorpion's hand is all fine and dandy, because the way the wound is spurting and the look of surprise on Sub-Zero's face match the speed of the slash shown in the picture, but I think I'd like this picture that much better if it was slower. If you removed the blur and just had the blood oozing out of the wound. You could keep the eyes on Sub-Zero though, since he would be going into shock anyway.

The shimmer in Scorpion's eye could be done away with in favour of a look of malice, but I suppose that is what the shimmer is meant to represent anyway, so fine.

To be fair, I didn't see anything even vaguely romantic about this picture, probably because it depicts Scorpion disembowelling Sub-Zero rather than holding him tight. Still, it does feel a little bit too touchy-feely for Scorpion. He's an aggressive soul, and I'd picture him more repeatedly stabbing Subby than slicing him. He'd probably look a tad more passionate than patient, as well. That said, he's a bit of a sadist (why else would he have the spear?), so I suppose it does suit him.

Body language wise, its perfect for the pose they're in. How they got into that pose, I dunno, but I would assume Scorpion tricked Subby into accepting a handshake and then stabbed him. Its certainly not a combative pose, I can see that much, since Subby seems to have had his guard down.

All-in-all, while its not a picture I can visualise as appearing at any point in the actual Mortal Kombat (since Subby would never drop his guard, ever, let alone around Scorpion, and besides, Scorpion isn't out to kill the younger Sub-Zero anymore either), it is a really, really nice picture. We can just say this is a "what-if" from MK2 I suppose. Anyway, good job.

DeadlyFrost6 and Weskerian: Thanks for the input. You guys really put some thought into your comments and I appreciate that. My only response is one of explanation. Basically, the way I envisioned Scorpion getting that close to Sub-Zero is by beating him. Subby was completely defeated, Scorpion picked him up off the ground by the scruff on his neck, and proceeded to "gut" him. This picture is really depicting a fatality. It is one possible way that Scorpion could have murdered the original Sub-Zero at the end of the 1st tournament.furious

I like to think Scorpion burned him to dead (happy skull), but like you said, its one possible way.

That pic is AWESOME!! Scorpions the best in my book and I disagree with the positioning being "gayish", to me it has a very strong dramatic feeling to it as Scorpion stares into Sub-Zeros eyes as his life fades into darkness. I LOVE it!

So sweet. Nice use of color! Great for the gore hounds. Don't listen to these people when they slam your realism. You're drawing VIDEO GAME charachters. Last I checked, MK had stepped away from realistic deaths anyway. (C'mon! A femur to the eye?)smile

Awesome. The gore is detailed and very nicely done, I'm no surgeon but it seems accurate. Scorpion's transparent mask showing his skeleton teeth is brilliant and the blood is spread just right.
Very nice.
And I'm a huge Subby fan.

wow This is flawless and badass!!! Excellent job on the blood and gore! Yeah, Scorp DOES look taller and I really love the expressions on both of my top 2 favorite ninjas and MK characters (Poor Subby, but who cares! grin). Great job! 1000000000/5 from me! *sheds a tear* ='D

In a word, perfect. You have a pretty good talent for drawing gore, there are no complaints at all other than that I wish it would be more realistic, but hey, can't have everything.

No, No, No,

I understand this picture for what it was ment.

This is farrrrrrr from Gay you stupid ass people. This picture, as incredible as it is, IS Predator vs Prey. A predator preferes to kill the prey up close and personal. Not shoot it from afar. Not even decive the prey, as the relationship between the two icons is known.

You see, this is what it might look like if you litterally, kill an enemy you know--wants to kill you as well. The true vendetta, the true hunt...ended...finally.
FATALITY!!!

Hug death, imbrasse it Sub Zero--Look into the eyes of your murdered killer...See what it is lik to DIE!!
Understand that I know what you see.....I know what you feeeeel all too well...
( If you have ever seen that scene in "Saving Private Ryan"////That scene were the Russian ever so slowly Lllllleeeeannnss on the U.S. soldier upstairs while the other has been shot and killed .They tussell and roll over him. Another is seemingly shell shocked on the stairs not acknowleging the stuggle, but hears the fight upstairs and does nothing still trembling in fear ( artillery firing of at ramdom in the background).
The Veteran Russian Soldier wins the battle of stregnth and ends up laying on top of the "rookie" sniper with crocidile dun dee style knife pionted directly down routed for the "rookies" chest (one hand to grasp the handle of the kinfe and the other to re-enforce well, force at the butt of the handel). Stregnth vs force is realized by the rookie and he says rapidly......
"listentome, listentome, no-no-no wait, listentome, listentome, listen to me......Mmmeerrrrraauauuuhhhaaww shhhhit....!!!) The six in. blade enters his body very very slowly and.........death becomes him as the lungs he used to breathe......let---breathe---go. No screams--he reluctantly accepts the sharp metal blade entering his body. He is dieing as the blade is shoved into his chest through all the protective bulletproof armor (the russian whispers[shhhhh--shhhh--shhhhhhhh quietly and slowly]........the rookies arms release from the struggle and drop////// the rookies eyes go.. into a blank stare ):::
A scene from Saving Private Ryan I actually apreciated.

This Is Steak & Potatoes people......You are Not Predators

You silly, silly, stupid people.
You obviously misinterpret THIS peace of art.......

I am a PREADATOR!!
I know what this means, and it is NOT, by any means, gay ninjas wit guts all over the place.
I am expectedly......insulted FOR this artist.


Big ups my man for making us a Master-piece. I know a little about the misinterpretaion of art. Even if it is Violent as a muthaF----

I have seen that on the Midway Boards as an avatar. Anyway 10/10
I too am a predator. And I see this artwork like this:

Scorpion looks in Sub-Zero's eyes and says to himself, I can see the life fading from him. He will finally feel what I felt. MWAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!

And Sub-Zero's thinks: His...... eyes......are.......evil...... I ...can...see....hatred...in..them. *Sub dies*


^That's what I see. Not this:
Scorp: Come kiss me!
Sub: Okay -*gets stabed* oh......Scorpion.....c-come...closer...smile

^ That is what a prey sees. I don't see that. And wonderfull detail. Did anyone notice the blood coming from Sub's mouth? Faaaantastic.
