Why is Ermac's face purple =P?
Anyway, I don't really understand the fatality done by Ermac. The blood looks good, but needs more editiing.

I know you wanted to make Shang Tsung's soul coming out of his body but you failed by doing so. The soul doesn't look like it is coming from his boby, Gravity problem aswell. You did better job in editing your own blood. It seams that you just pasted the blood props over.
Ermac should have being more orange or red.
Your Scarlet and Scoprion fake was a lot better imo.

Definately your best blood edited fake. However it has lazy written all over it. =(

Look at your own health bars and tell me you don't see a problem. There aren't in the right position, and the red is supposed to be on the other side.
Ermac almost looks pink, and his face definately looks pink. I think it doesn't make sense to have a skeleton come out of a blood splat. It should come out of Shang's body, not the blood.
I like the pose Ermac is in, and his fingers (but they still could use some editing). I'm glad to see you have a timer and the icons

I think I agree with Max, I liked your Scorpion/Skarlet fake more than this one. Your sprite editing to those two characters was much more thorough and complete than these edits. Anyhow, since you already mentioned your dislike for these lifebars I don't feel I need to go into that. But, no shadows? The background work seems pretty solid, the lightning addition to the portal was well done, and the darkening hasn't taken away from the quality of the image. So I think you darkened this to a proper level.

Okay, well your Ermac edit isn't bad. I must say first that I am extremely glad you decided to create your own pose, rather than go with that overused Ermac sprite that is used in basically every fake Ermac appears in. His right hands seems alright, but is it supposed to be giving off a light 'glow' effect? If so, I feel a stronger effect is needed to emphasize his energy. The fingers do seem somewhat large, but it still looks pretty nice. His left arm doesn't really fit here I think, I'd rather see it in either another position or a more relaxed state. It seems very stiff, and the hand he is using to summon this energy seems more relaxed; just doesn't fit in my opinion. Ermac's color should be a darker red, this looks to pink. I'm not really sure what you were thinking about when you edited his face that color, just seems like an unfinished idea to me. It would have been interesting for you to have tried actually altering Ermac's normal appearance somewhat, it may have been a good idea, but I think it looks unfinished at the moment.

The Shang Tsung sprite could use some work. It doesn't really seem to have as much effort put into it as Ermac's sprite. The facial expre-ssion should reflect pain, it still looks like Tsung is trying to do something here. The leg positioning is decent, but like the top half of his body still seem to be in an action when there isn't a possible way for that to be. The skeleton/soul should be coming out of Shang's body, not originating from the blood. If it is intended to be a soul, then it would need a slight slow effect with it. If it is meant to be a skeleton, well heavy editing would have to be done with the current pose to make it look realistic. The bloodwork is actually alright to be customly done, that's probably your best blood edit. I'd say this may be your second best fake, so its still pretty good.

Oh jesus no, this is very, very BAD, specially compared to your last ones, which- if I remember correctly- were pretty damn fine.
Ermac could use alot more editing. All you did was pallette swap Sub-Zero. In some places, the swap isn't even done correctly.
I seriously hate his pink face, and the bright green on his fingers just doesn't...shine enough. If BlackSaibot hadn't pointed it out, I would've missed it.
Why is it an MKII bg, with MKII life bars(which are too small and not properly placed), an MKII 'Ermac' (well, an MKII ninja anyway) but with an MK3 Shang Tsung?
Did you edit the blood? I dont think you did, except for that 'blood' from which the skeleton is coming out of, but it's just that one lightning or ice or whatever sprite pallette swapped to red.
It looks ridiculous that the skeleton is coming out of a splash of blood. If anything, it should be coming out of Shang's body, since I take it you meant it to be his soul?
I dont see why Shang Tsung would be raising his knee like that. I just dont.
Like BlackSaibot said, lazy written all over. You've done much better. I was completely disapointed when I saw this, I even thought ''nah, this cant be Marcel's work!''.
I hope you do better in the future.

*Dusts off the PM system*.

As for the pic, everything has been said, not your best, extremely lazy.

You've done way better than this, and, I have no idea what you managed to do with that pallete swap confused.
