I'd also like to add that to make the fake I used Paint, and I used 2Pic to change the colors of a few sprites and props.

Ahh, yes, I told you I liked it before, and now I'll tell you why grin.
But just a few things:

- Baraka would probably get blown backwards and be airborne, being hit by a shotgun and all, heh.
- Johnny should probably hold it with two hands, but it doesn't always happen I guess, so, tongue.
- The effects on the bullets are a bit naf, lol. But it's good for some part.

The background could well be dark for all we know, so I won't mention that.

The good things:
+ I LOVE the background, it's great imo and it shows you have put in considerable thought into it's making.
+ I also LOVE the lifebars, and you've included everything, win marks and win texts and timer with a reasonable time.
+ The blod effects are VERY good, not exessive
and not one colour either tongue.
+ The conversion to Jpeg was very good (oh wait, I did that , tee-hee grin).
+ Shadows included.
+ The shotgun isn't that bad at all really, especially being made from scratch.
+ The BEST thing you have ever done imo, and worthy of a good rating.

Nice work Zenty smile. You really have a talent for backgrounds, and the other stuff isn't bad either grin.

Very nice, I thought when I first clicked here this would be another cheap 'matrix' rip-off, but I was wrong. I actually like the idea of this one, wouldn't make sense for anyone to do this but Cage.

I do like these lifebars, unlike most custom lifebars they make sense. You have everything in that region, excellent work there. I do enjoy the background, if I didn't know better, I would have said this was right out of an MK game. The lighting effects in it are perfect, and its all textured nicely. I agree with tim on the fact you are quite talented with BG creating.

The effects on the bullets aren't perfect, but they are better than average. But Baraka should be stumbling back at least, something to indicate the force of the bullets. The shotgun is pretty good considering you designed it yourself. Cage's pose isn't all that bad I guess, he's cocky so he may try and hold a shotgun with just one hand. Blood effects are good, you have enough there to be respectable, but its not overdone or sloppy. Also Baraka's arm looks good lying there. You even put shadows in.

This was a pleasant surprise from what I was expecting with that 'matrix' thing I mentioned, this is a good fake.

The fatality itself is lacking action...I know baraka is out of It but I think the fake would have been better If baraka was in a different pose. The bullets and shadows and stuff look pretty cool. The background on the other hand is magnificent...I like it alot.

An original background. Thank you.

Anyway, I don't really like the gun cage has, and the shadow bullets look kind of weird. I don't really know what else to say really.

Well, thnks for the opinions, everybody smile Yeah, I dont like the shotgun myself neither...but I spent quite some time trying to give or take details, and changing the colors, but I never got one that fully satisfied me, so I kept this one.
The shadow bullet trails...well, yeah, they're a disgrace I'm afraid. You see, I once made this great purple colored shadow trail effect for this other pic, and I tried doing the same with this one, only green. But it didn't turn out too well.
As for the bg, yeah, I took my time creating it grin
Thnks again, everybody.

I really like what you did with the background and stuff. My only little problem is that it should be a bit darker since this is after all a fatality. I know that there are also a couple of other little issues but I didn't care. I give it a 4.5/5. I can't wait to see more! grin

blacksaibot your sig looks familiar wink

The fake pic I don't like it that much....
The background doesn't really look mkish even though theres a dragon it looks more like a Doom2 inside wall levels when I get my ass kill (yes even the great Marcel unbeatable met his match besides being Tomb Raider... which I hate grin)
The lifebars are o.k but kinda familiar like you got inspire by some1 with the same color lifebars.
The way Baraka is getting shot eh I don't know it would look better if you can work on the effects a little bit more detail like. Cage holding the gun and the bullets look more like lazer shots than bullets. Good attemt on shadows. and yeah the screen should be dark.

After looking at it, one of the greatest things is that you are making your backgrounds from scrath! I give you credit for that!
-The idea of the Shot gun is great, I like it.
-The blood could have use more diferent tones of red color, and a little bit more drops would have being nice, knowing what damage a shotgun do!
-Good thing about making your own lifebars, icons,...
-The only thing don't really like is the bullet time effect that you wanted to add. Not the idea, but how it turned out, you should have tried another effects imo, like "liquify" maybe or something similar!
Overall, you are improving!
Keep up the good work!
