Great Job.

And Stryker actually looks hot in that picture. Wow. Styker and hot in the same sentence!!!

Only thing Im not keen on is his ties with the Black Dragon. We already have two of Earth's Warriors closely connected to them.
I like how you have covered his absence from the games in the bios and incorporated MKD's Konquest, with him in Seido. excellently done.

5/5.

Great work Aculeus, I would expect nothing less.

As for his ties to the Black Dragon, they're more of a small plot device just so I could give him a better reason to come back.

I like it, bit it reminds me a litte too much of the Batman:begins storyline, where sombody kills his family so he goes out to far away temples and trains to become a better fighter.
Still very good. I like the pic. 3.5/5

****Wow....another big great WOW.

Your talents have seriously improved Aculeus, I mean, this is by far your MOST realistic drawing of them all. Not only that, but also the way you are coloring your drawings makes them feel more real and natural.

This has got to be your best piece, and its no doubt one of my faves. You just keep improving. Where to start?

His head, face and haircut are all 100% amazing. The pose you gave him makes this pic feel more real if possible. While Im actually very happy with Strykers new outfit in MKA (very detailed and improved), and I think the “shirtless” thing doesn’t fit him well, I really think you did an excellent artistic job with his body, looks great.

As for the pants, they fit him, they might be a bit too simple, but still, I like them. Good job with the weapons. The overall costume for this Stryker is simple, its not a bad thing though, I just don’t think being shirtless fits him, still, no one can deny this is truly an amazing piece of art.

I love this Stryker, it looks fantastic and Im sure people would love him even more if he looked like this. Excellent job man, you should really work for Midway. 5/5

*****As for the bio, Im sorry to say SmokeNc, that I don’t like it as much as I liked your fist. I don’t think its bad, but maybe its because I don’t think that attitude fits Stryker at all. That was the thing I kept saying I loved about the first, that you avoided the cliché silly American tough cop guy who loves his country, blabla and all.

Also, the fact that you involved him that deeply with the Black Dragons makes his character, well, not something new in the world of Mk. I was honestly expecting something shocking. You should had explored the potential of the Seido storyline. That’s no doubt the bets part of your bio, involving him with Seido is a great thing, having the black dragons and special forces play a small role in his story is also great (like in your first bio), but making it that big is not good. Its just not original anymore.

Still, I think you did a pretty decent job. While I don’t like the attitude he portrays in this bio, nor how much you involved him with the black dragons, I still like the Seido part. 6/10

queve: I appreciate your thorough response. Y'know, I don't totally disagree that the whole shirtless thing isn't for Stryker. I just thought it would be funny and cool to take a character like Stryker, who is an average looking somewhat out of shape guy, and turn him into this super lean hard-ass looking fighter. In other words, take him in a direction that Ed and the gang would never take him in... for better, for worse. I suppose I could have done all that and given him a shirt, but it just sort of accentuates the whole thing.wink

Your feedback is more than welcome queve. If I intend to get any better, I need to know what's good about what I write and what's bad. I'm with you on the fact that having the Black Dragion involved with him that deeply was a mistake. And in hindsight, now wish that I left them only in his first bio. I guess I just didn't want Stryker to go on a journey for no reason. Characters like Kai who go out and "find themselves" aren't that interesting to me. So I thought that having at least something for Stryker to chases after while he betters himself would've avoided that. Now, I see that it's not as successful as I would've liked. It's definetly something I'll try to avoid if we do another collab.

I have to say that the biography was wonderful; it was well written, and incorporated what may be considered an unimportant element from Konquest, which was a nice surprise. The hunting of the Black Dragon didn't seem to go well with me, and I believe that if he had just isolated himself into training, that would've been better. Overall, though, I love it.
As for the picture, Stryker looks like the man. The way you draw your humans is spectacular, Aculeus. He presents himself as a noble warrior, and even has the batons and katanas, which seems to be a pretty unique weapon style to have. He looks good like that, but I feel as thought he'd have looked better with some armour, at least around his shoulders and chest. Also, it would've been neat if you could give him his riot gun, although based on the story, it wouldn't make sense for him to still have it, since he was discharged... Meh, either way, still a good look for Stryker.
Today, I feel like being biased, since Stryker looks so cool and since there isn't as much fan-art for him, so it gets a 5/5 from me.

Im glad to know you guys appreciate my opinions smile. I get what you are saying, and like I stated, while its not how I picture Stryker, its definitely a cool new image for him, and you are right, it does make him interesting. Its very different from the image we have of him. The pic is one of my faves.

Its great to know you appreciate my views on your bios smile. I also love to write, the arts and literature are some of my favorite things, that’s why I really like to explore and go deep in stories, I even tend to find out more then there actually is. While this wasn’t your best, I know you can write excellent stuff, I have seen your other collaborations, and Im a fan of the first Stryker bio you did. That one was superb. I hope to see more of your works.

Wow.......that's just.....wow.


Do either of you have a site where I can worship accordingly? Art and writing like that is just too detailed for words. I bow to you both.

You are hired for our demo album coverage.

Also, any word on recoloring my pencilworks? I knew you chose one in the past, but forgot which.
