This has to be 1 of your best fake pic you ever done! you did some actual editing, you made a attempt to add shadows and the idea is original on my opinion. I never seen no1 done this before. Couple things....
The lifebars should be up not down.
I don't really like the bg since is space is a bit boring =/

Your getting better keep up the good pace, son sad you make me proud grin

well the life bars should be uptop as mentioned before, i like the jet pack it looks pretty sweet...it would be better if it was actual screen size, also i cant tell what is coming out of cyrax & sektors head it looks like a hand to me lol, maybe i just dont see it... still this looks good.
2.5/5

I think the background is kind of weird. I don't like it, but I don't hate it. But what I DO hate is what you did to the health bars. I think it's nasty looking.

However, you have improved greatly on your sprite editing. That's impress coming from you. The jet pack is a nice idea, and the fire effects don't look like ass. It actually looks like Stryker's gun effects if you look at it closely. The only thing I don't like about the sprites are that they both have their faces showing. I really don't think it fits either of them. Nice shadow detail and excellent image quality.

4/5

Judging by the stone cones, the shadows are going the wrong way. I won't hold that against you, though.

Well, this is pretty nice, its an interesting idea at least. Though, I don't really 'like' the lifebar setup, in this fake it was either place them on the top which would block out parts of Cyrax, or make an adjustment. I do respect that you at least tried to do something with the lifebars and such instead of just leaving them out completely, but I can't say I am exactly fond of the way it looks. One reason is of course because the lifebars have never appeared on the bottom of the screen in MK, the other reason is that it makes the fake pic size large vertically. There is a lot of open 'space' under the fighting platform to make room for the lifebars. Anyway, the lifebars themselves are okay, though I think perhaps another color of text shuold have been used because it is hard to see Sektor's name. The feel of the lifebars themselves fit well with the 'space' theme of the background, as do the win tokens. The timer is a bit bland to fit with the rest of the set up though, in my opinion. Their shadows do look mispositioned, but they still look alright. Again, its nice to at least see you included the basics.

I do think the background could use more work though. The way the bridge is just hanging out there doesn't look to realistic, I think a 'land' sort of fighting platform would have been better, or either place the land under the bridge. The lone planet is sort of boring, it might would have been nice if you included some other 'space features' in some way. I also feel this is a bit too much light to be outer space, you could use a few of those stars and incorperate the other 'space features' I was talking about. Perhaps meteors, comets, etc. Still, this is alot better than the majority of space backgrounds, so I'll give you credit there.

Okay, the actual sprites look pretty well done. The poses look nicely executed, and Cryax's jet pack was a nice idea. The jet pack itself is nice, and the prop selection for the 'flares' was well chosen. The edit to both of their heads is an interesting concept, but I have always preferred not to see the cyborgs actual faces. I didn't care for Cyrax's alt. in MKDA at all, but all that's just a personal preference. The edit itself looks quite good.

The 'sparks' on Sektor are really the only thing I don't care for on the sprites. They aren't a solid color, which is a plus, but I don't think they feel very 'electric'. They need some sort of small 'glow' effect to give them that feel I believe. Also, a few of the spark lines could be a bit less thick to give them a beter electric feel. Anyhow, this was pretty well put together, you obviously did put some effort into it, good job.

well its a change, instead of having to look at the top of the screen for life bars, you can look at them below the fighters so it would be easier, hell and those lifebars are cool
