Wh-wh-wh-wh-whoa.
Lol, nice, I must say,

But of course grin, just a couple of things:
- The two characters (or what's left of one of them tongue) are not in line. I don't think that is appropriate as they are so far away.
- I won't say lack of lifebrs, as I think they would clash with "stuff", lol.
- I see the dragon king sprite has no shadow, which is a shame as Kahn does.
- I guess the texts are interesting really, I quite like them, but not mk, but you like to do that, and it is effective, so I'll shut up about them for this pic, lol.
- The dragon king's face looks a bit simple, I think you should have added to the mouth a little (used to be Kintaro's right?), to make him look more angry.
- I think the DK could have worn something on his chest as well.

Good things:
+ The DK sprite is very good! I like your interpretation of him (just do something more with his front).
+ The blood work is superb! On the floor, Kahn, and on the blades, it's all good grin.
+ Kahn's sprites are well chosen, and well cut up, lol.
+ The reflection in the blood pool is an extremely nice touch.
+ I like how you edited the background as well, it's a nice touch, and well done.
+ The shadows that you have added are very good.

A very good fake here Gl1tch. Keep up the good work!

OMFG, that is pretty sweet. AWESOME job on Shao Kahn. I fucking love it! I really like the editing you did to the background, it looks great. The sky is pretty cool as well.

The dragon king looks pretty cool, but the skin, pants, and toes could use some work.

Nice job, 4/5

Yeah, His toes looked better in as a bmp....I dunno how they all got ploped together like that.

what would make the pants and the skin better?...so next time I edit pannts I can do it right ;)

A very good fake here Gl1tch. Keep up the good work!


Yup...I didn't notice that I forgot the shadow until after I submitted it.

The face and head is actually from reptile's MK2 fatality...I just stretched it out horizontaly, added longer jaw fangs,and gave him yellow eyes. I tried to make him look angry, but I couldn't
pull it off for some reason! The body however WAS actually kintaro's.

Thanks for the comments

Well I must say you are becoming one of the best fakers here Gl1tch. This is your finest work by far, simply awesome.

The DK sprite, what can I say? Originally Kintaro I believe? You can't tell it anymore! Fine job on editing his body, the use of green was well done. Though I agree, maybe you could have done something more with the chest. The Shao Kahn sprite is pretty good as well, good choice there. You gave the effect that Kahn was 'crawling away' much like what happens with the Hsu Hao fatality in MKDA. You even tried to put Kahn's reflection in the blood pool, very nice indeed. The blood on TDK's blade is excellent, basically flawless. You know about the shadows, so I don't need to tell you to visit the thread at the top of the page!

And by the way, I am glad you took my advice and used that 'fatality text' idea, as your sort of trademark. Its very nice as I imagined it would be.

I only agree to use the fatalty text when the victorious makes his winning poses wich it is the case here.
Great job Glitch, getting better every fake! wink

woah...









1000 visits for me eh I mean the fake pic... ahem...
The fake pic I have to say im impress you getting a lot better your editing and the way you take your time impresses me more. I like the way you edited the background it gives it a nice look plus more detail, nice job on that. I don't like the dragon king sprite that much, sasori right it kind of reminds me of the Hulk which resembles Rosie O Donnald whatever her names is grin and you left evidence that you obviously used a Kintaro sprite. The way you edited the Shao Kahn is awesome, but the blood color could use more shade maybe making it darker or something. I don't like the text how your deciding to making it, it doesn't really go right and its not in the middle.

Good job Glich I just hope you don't fall down and keep sending a straight example of what fake pics are all about smile

I really like this one, it's pretty cool.
I especially love the way there's so much blood, that you can actually see Kahn's reflection in it. Very nice touch! Instead of filling up the rest of my post with all the praise it deserves, I'll just say what I think should be improved about it:

- screen size is a little stretched out, you should use the normal resolution (which for MK3 arcade is 400 x 256). I think you could get it to fit.
- I think you should have used the regular MK3 text for "Dragon Wins" and "Fatality" instead of your own.
- It looks like Kahn was killed with just one slash. Only one of the Dragon King's arm-blades should be bloody.

Yes, very nice :) You've improved alot, Gl1tch, this is one of your best, I really like it.
The sprite edit is very cool, though it kinda reminds me of hulk...
The effects are nicely done, overall.
I like this alot.

Thank you all for the critiques...Yes he kinda does look like the hulk...But I never got the chance to see the hulk so I wouldn't know wink

I would have used the text from the MK warehouse for where it says the dragon king wins...but honestly, The MK warehouse was experiencing techinical difficulties. So I had to improvise.

Again thanks for the critiques.
