I dislike his head. Everything else seems be in order. The foundation is filthy, but the sketch is quite good.

3/5

I can't really see where the skin ends and the robe/tunic/skirt/MANCLOTH begins, but other than that, I like it. I love the symbol on his chest. Does it mean anything in particular?

I like your comic-like exaggerated style.

My Bio unviels the meaning of the symbol on his chest.....I'm still working on it though. I need to do some editing.

P.S thx for the comments so far...they're helping.

So what's wrong with the head exactly? It's hard to see the errors, when you're the creator of the artpiece.

Alright here's the bio:

Savage.

The Beast travels through the seas of the Realms devouring the sinful”. The inscription found on Savage’s 2nd ship, the Beast 2.

Story

Centuries ago in Edenia, Ho-Han worked as a faithful and assiduous sea merchant under King Jerrod. With his own bare but powerful hands, Ho- Han built his mighty and massive ship which he named the "Beast". Due to Ho-Han’s intellect and his knowledge for the science of Realms, Ho- Han was able to create a special device for the ship. This special device could create portals for which the ship could easily pass through other Realms. Outstandingly, the ship also had the ability to sail through the skies. The "Beast" was Ho-Han’s greatest invention and it had also become Ho-Han's home which he and his family lived on.

Ho-Han was truly an elated man for he had everything a man could ask for; He had money, a beautiful family, and he had the greatest ship in Edenia, but unfortunately this would all change in one dreadful night.

During one stormy night, Ho-Han was traveling through the grisly seas of the Netherealm. It was here that Ho-Han was ambushed by a group of relentless, demonic pirates. In that night, Ho-Han lost everything he had worked hard for, including his most treasured item, his family. In grief, Ho-Han watched his crew and family get slaughtered one by one. Ho-Han tried to fight back, but he was no match for the formidable Netherealm pirates. The pirates had destroyed the ship, and the treasures of the ship were stolen. Ho-Han, the captain of the ship was then thrown into the Sea of Blood to be eaten by the vicious, sea creatures of the Netherealm. Ho-Han became dramatized from the experience, and he accepted death to overpower him. But destiny had a change of plans for him.

The next morning, Ho-Han was amazingly found lying on the shores of the Island of Netherealm. It had seemed Ho-Han had miraculously survived his dramatic experience, but at a terrible consequence. Ho-Han had discovered that he had lost his left arm and right eye. Anger could then be perceived on Ho- Han’s face and he screamed to the Elder Gods “Why did you not let me die?!” Ever since the incident of the death of his family, Ho-Han's life was never the same again. Ho-Han was now a depressed man, and he even thought about taking his own life. When Ho-Han prepared a rope to hang himself, he decided that killing himself wouldn’t make a difference, and he decided to seek vengeance instead.

During his stay on the island, Ho-Han wrestled and slaughtered many creatures that tried to kill him. Fighting these vicious creatures had toughened Savage tremendously, making him stronger, faster, agile, and brutal. During one of his fights, a Netherealm hound puppy tried to kill him. Instead of killing the dog, Ho-Han captured and trained the dog to be a ruthless fighter, which would defend him at all cost. Ho-Han named the dog "Kroza" meaning in Edenain language "Son of the Beast".

Around the island, the ruins of other defeated ships could be perceived all over the shores. With the ruins, Ho-Han made a mechanical arm as his left arm, armor and a new magnificent ship that he named "The 2nd Beast". With the ship, Ho-Han along with Kroza escaped the hellish Island. Every night since, Ho-Han had nightmares that depicted the night where he lost everything. With anger, Ho-Han whispered “I will get my vengeance?.

In order for Ho-Han to obtain the revenge he sought for, he became a bounty hunter so he could kill those who killed the good and innocent. Without mercy, Ho-Han killed many that had bounties on them and he made precious money for it. He was named "Savage" by others because of his cruel nature.

In recent times, Ho-Han has discovered that a pirate, who has an extremely high bounty on his head, has been killing various sailors throughout the seas of different Realms. When he saw and heard the description of the pirate from various survivors that had survived the pirate’s massacre, it fit the description of the demonic pirate captain that had taken everything that he loved so much on that fateful day. “Vengeance is near” Savage ponder’s to himself.

Savage, with The 2nd Beast, follows the trail of death left by the demonic pirate. The trail has led Savage to Earthrealm, to an island where Mortal Kombat is hosted.....

Appearance: Savage is a large, gruff man, filled with anger. He is bold, and has an untidy, black beard. Savage wears a heavy, bronze, chest plate which states in crimson in an ancient Edenian language "Beast" in the center. He wears bear fur which cover his shoulders and back. He has ropes wrapped around his waist where he places his pirate sword. He has a mechanical arm which as been disguised to look like his other good arm.
Kroza, Savage's pet is a vicious Netherealm hound who is very large, vicious and has spikes running down its spine.

Savage wears a heavy, bronze, chest plate which states in crimson in an ancient Edenian language "Beast" in the center. He wears bear fur which cover his shoulders and back. He has a mechanical arm which can be used as a canon.
Kroza, Savage's pet is a vicious Netherealm hound who is very large, vicious and has spikes running down its spine.

Special moves:

Rope swing- Savage unties the ropes around his waist, and swings it across his opponent which then gets tied to the person's leg. Savage then pulls the rope which causes the person to trip, and he then swings the opponent to the other side of the arena for additional damage.

Hound attack- During the match Kroza fights along with Savage. Savage can summon his hound to attack his opponent.

Cannon blast- Savage's mechanical arm is detachable. When Savage detaches his arm, a hidden mini - canon is revealed. With the canon, Savage can send powerful blasts of gun powder. He can send 2 or 3 at the same time.

Fatalities:

Fetch- Savage pulls his opponent's head off, and throws it far in the sky. He then commands Kroza to fetch. Kroza leaps in the air and eats the head, a nice gruesome mess.

Rope trick- Savage throws his rope to his opponent's leg which then gets tied to it. Savage then swings the rope in circles extremely fast which causes the opponent to go around as well rapidly. You can then see the skin pilling off, eyes going everywhere, organs flying off. When Savage stops swinging, all that his left of the opponent is the skeleton.

I really, really like this. The concept is very awesome, his bio is very nice, and the arm cannon is very nifty. These are the type of characters we need for MK8.

5/5.

I think it looks great. A more prominent belt or waist-line could've helped, but it's fine the way it is. Alot of characters already hae the huge waist belt. It's kind of refreshing to see simplicity there.

I think what they mean about the head is that the angle he is looking exposes the back of his neck more than usually seen in a render like that. Kinda makes the front of his face look "flat" in contrast to how "thick" his neck is in the picture.

Preference of stance basicly. Looks perfectly fine to me because it was drawn correctly.

Good concept character, nice supporting bio. 4/5 overall.

Good job KJ
