I'm going to give this a 2/5 because you give low score to most fake.....

Spoilers: (Highlight to reveal)
Just messing with you.



Well, looks like you used Kano original fatality and changed a bit. He is ripping off the head rather than pulling out the whole skeleton. Great transition and concept. Great job with a the background. In most fakes, the background is not dark enough to refer the action as a fatality. None of the characters are casting a shadow. Although the background is dark, you could user a darker shade of black to make shadows. There are no life bars, but that is optional. Overall, I give this a flawless victory.

EDIT- You know what after having a second look I realised that this is actually crappy and very boring.

This just may be the shittiest fake I've ever seen, which is quite a feat. Not even worth a critique. 0/5

Wow, a pretty boring idea - head ripping, never seen that in MK before tongue

Stryker's head seems a tad too small also - very blurry head as well.

It's not. Are you viewing it in its full size?

The background is very dark. You have to be able to see something man! All I see is red clouds and black.

Stryker's head is really small. (Even in full size.) The blood is great though.
Shadows? Probably, but you can't see them. tongue

Score: 3/5 You can do much better.

That's the effect I wanted for the background. Just the clouds and the Shadow Priest are colored.

And yeah, I thought the blood was much better than it used to be.

alright I forgot to tell you my opinion on this.

The blood is pretty decent and the way you made the background was nice, the only thing I did not like was the lack of sprite edits but since I love the way you did the blood.. 4/5

Good dark atmosphere. Poses seem accurate and the blood is spot on.

Stryker however seems to lack a neck, and possibly a spine.

Pretty good. The blood is done nicely, the background is really awesome, but yeah... Stryker's head looks small. At first I thought it was boring, but its pretty good actually.

3/5

This is good, but not spectacular. Let's go through it together shall we?

Pros:
- Background = very simple but amazing. The colour contrast between the dark and bloody red clouds is very pleasing on the eye. And of course, it looks like a real fatality because its darkened.
- Sprites = I commend you for editing your sprites and giving them original poses, because that's ultimately what saves this fake from being a cut+paste job. The Kano pose is good, as is Strykers, and I don't see a problem with his head tbh. Doesnt look too small to me
- Overall very crisp and clean, even the blood.

Cons:
- Overall the concept is too simple and we've seen it done so many times before with other character
- The blood. It's crisp, yes, but it's completely unrealistic. The way it's just spurting everywhere looks dumb. It looks like he's a human party-popper. I think there should just be one major spurt of blood and only little bits elsewhere. Sorta like how they used to look back in MK II with reptile's fatality and stuff. U get what I mean? I'm not good at explaining myself

2.5/5. Definitely far from being the worse here, but nowhere near as good as what we used to see with the classic fake makers like MaxDam. Keep it up though, I still wanna see your work, unlike almost every other fake maker around today who I couldn't give two soggy shits about
