You should get rid of the shadows behind the life bars, because It makes the background look more like a wall.

I hate the background.
This fake is TOO basic.
I don't like anything about it, but the blood catches my attention.

Yeah, it looks more like a wall, and I know I've seen better from you so, try again.

I thought Kintaro uppercut him do the river =/. That idea could of been 10 times better and not to mention MORE creative in this fake pic.

Yeah I get that, I don't like the shadows either. I just wanted different life bars.

Hmm. I'm not really sure what to say about this one.

Good points:
-You've included shadows, and the end at the correct place on the bridge, good work.
- The lifebars aren't too bad, although they remind of glass pills from Dr.Mario, so I wouldn't use them too often.
- I like the effect you've used on Scorpion falling, a nice motion blur.
- The blood on the floor is a good effect, and I like how you didn't fill the screen with blood.

Bad points :
- No timer, win marks, or win indicators at the top of the screen. MKWarehouse has all these resources, so use it wisely.
- THE BACKGROUND. Although it's a nice idea, it's not a good idea to mix gaming objects with real life pictures. Again, refer to MKW for all of the background from the games.
- Mixing elements from the games is a bad idea. For example, don't use MK4 lifebars with an MK2 timer, MK1 points, MK3 characters and MK : DA fighting styles at the bottom. Aim for consistency.
- The "Kintaro Wins!" text is a BAD font to use. And why does it have an exclaimation mark next to it? Also, use the names provided from MKW for the lifebars. If you can't extract the names, download the fonts, and give it a bash.

Take these points into consideration, and you can produce much better fakes. I'm sure of it.

Current score : 2/5
Fix the lifebars and the "Kintaro Wins!" text : 2.5/5
Use a proper background : 3.5/5
Go for consistency : 4/5
Correct the timer, win marks and win indicators : 5/5

Too damn basic.
The lifebars are lame and the background sucks.
Anyways, I like the dragon. :\

Here is a good example:


As you can see, I adapt the 3rd plan of my backgroung with a real forest picture, then I add the Living forest trees with the border of the wasteland on the 2nd plan. I took the water from the deadpool for the 1st plan of the Background.
Not telling you that you have to do it exacly like that but it looks more Mortal Kombat imo. wink

Yeah, based on common sense it could be 10 times better, 100 times better, 1000 times better, etc. Thats common sense. But you once told me that "The idea of fake pic making is to make some more original and creative and something even the MK Crew might get impressed." So really my whole point behind this is to try to impress upon any MK devs that may see this that they should use better arenas. That is really why I did this fake. Also I would not mind seeing Kintaro in another game. I see what you mean about the lack of creativity but this fake is about the background not the sprites.

Since you blurred Scorpion a little bit I thought you were trying to show the speed he's going down.

Your forgetting this is Mortal Kombat. A game that got its reputation for being bloody and gory/violent and the same time. Try to show a bit more creativity, but heh that’s just my opinion. Don’t take it so personal.
