thats excellent, his face does seem older, and it does give him personality, shading is magnificent, it all looks realistic as if someone from midway made it! or a olden times artist, five out of five dragons!

Wow, this is incredible!
My immediate reaction, similar to the above, was the face. It definitely looks a lot older than I'd expect for Rayden. He's a God, and has never really shown much in the way of wrinkles or aging.

Still, it's small enough a detail to be overlooked. You've got a great style, that's detailed without becoming cluttered. I'd have to agree with ~crow~, definitely some of the best stuff in very recent time.

I'd love to see more!

Merow(hello)
Wow thankyou =)

noob_sareena: Oh wow thankyou! Wonderful you'd say that! I really was trying to go for personality filled, but also keeping a older wise look to him...

Mick-Lucifer:
I totally admit I was going for a more older rayden. Mainly due to I love writting/roleplaying him as a grumpy acient god..=P
LOL just wait I love designing warriors wearing so much layers of clothing its a mirical they walk XP
I'll upload more when I can, don't want to flood, but most of my MK fan art is fan characters, or re-designs..

Eiee thankyou, great knowing people in the fandom like my art =)

I'd definitely like to see some of the new designs you've done for existing MK characters. I've seen some great ones pop up around the place, always worth looking at.

Do you do sequentials?

This is superb work, I love it. I personally like to see different styles for MK characters, copying the same style from the game itself can get a bit boring and repetitive. The face is interesting, I've always viewed Raiden as a wise, intelligent god. The face here defiantly helps that look I believe, it has a very asian feel. I also like the details you put into his hat, especially how you have it connected to his head, rather than just having it sitting there.

The attire's detail is also wonderful. You captured the look and feel of the various ropes very well. The lighting on the plates is very well done, accents the details that are present. The way you did the shading is something that I like here, the fabrics all have great texture. The small details such as the rises on his hat, the asian writing, and the nice flow of the cloths make this perfect, 5/5 from me.

Congratulations your drawing is excellent, and wonderfully done. I wish I could do something at least nearly as good as that. It's very good

Especially the shading, which gives the right volumes to the entire drawing, the clothes, the face, the clouds... I'm terrible with shades and I know it's one of the hardest things to do. But you've done a perfect work.

Congratulations again!!

That is a flawless drawing. I've seen sketches before, but yours blows them away... How long did that piece take you to draw?

Outstanding! 10/10

Merow(hello)
Thankyou everyone =)

Mick-Lucifer:
Yup I do sequentials. I'm working on one right now of an MK related one, based on a RPG I'm in.

~Crow~
Wow thankyou, honestly his hat just sitting has confused me. But still neat at the sametime, but gave me an excuse to put more ropes on him =P
Eiee *yay* I admit most of my MK art is either fan characters I RP or my friends do, Or my re-designs. Which I know isn't very popular in fan art areas or down right not allowed.. But great to know I can upload them here!! =)

Leno_mk
Shading isn't that hard, just force yourself to go really dark and then get one of those niffy eraser pens to place highlights..
Honestly I admire those that have the pacients to ink...I..hate...inking... Numbs my brain...=P

the_sim
How long? Ummm two days, honestly once I get the sketch done its kinda all down hill... Getting the sketch is the hard part for me...

This is an excellent piece of art! I have a slight issue with his face, but, that's a matter of opinion. Great job!

That is very but I mean VERY nice. You really got artistic skills. The shading, and textures are flawless. The only thing I don't like is the face like NovaStarr said, but this is something you hardly see on this board especially this kind of shading. Awesome job. Your avatar is cool.

Wow Tammy,

I've just been looking at your website. Very impressive artwork. Your shading skills I must say are top notch. This picture is no exception. The clothing is my favorite part. Excellent interpretation of Raiden.

Welcome very much and I can't wait to see more.

Woa, someone called me T name!
Not use to that, been called Meezer for a few years now in RL and online...
=P

Thankyou, I need to update my site and change the layout -yet again-
Kinda proud how my MK fan art is turning out since I rarely get a chance to draw huumans, normally skulled or animal skulled ones..
Glad to know you like all my work, thanks =)

Oh and trust me, I have more.. Fan art is an addiction for me...Sad to say..as is roleplaying =P

Yeah I noticed the skulls. wink The cat drawings are really cool I think. The dancing cats was probably my favorite on the whole site. Made me laugh. I'm getting a new cat today that my brother had no place to put other than putting it down. That brings the total up to three and that pic reminded me of that. I've a feeling that they won't be dancing when I get home though. wink

The PC I'm sitting at took awhile to load the actual image galleries, don't know if that's what you mean.

Take it easy

OMG. If all art was like this, then I'd be the happiest man in the world. This is simply amazing. The details are absolutely perfect on Raiden's face, in his cloak and in the background. Wonderful.

5/5

This was my initial reaction when seeing this drawing: wow

Your Raiden drawing kicks ass!! I like the great attention to detail and the drums. I also like the info you gave us about that whole connection with Raijin and the drums. I give it a 5 out of 5.
