Everything is admirable! Great detail, nothing too blurry or smudgy. Fire looks kickass and... and... and... THE FIRE LOOKS KICKASS!

Its definitely much more refined than the previous version, but theres still something about his pose that bugs me. Sorry but I cant tell you exactly what it is, maybe it's the way his feet are positioned? Maybe its the way his torso is completely twisted 90* at his waist? Honestly I cant tell you what it is, but I like it somewhat less than your other works.
Haha maybe its cos Taven is a fucking unoriginal character who has no unique physical traits of his own and could easily pass for an MK4 Jarek with fire abilities? But in that case its not really your fault.

4/5

Hmmm

I'm wondering if it's just that people are used to seeing the usual pose of the character standing straight up.

The pose is about perfect as I used a 3D skeleton for the base.

The only thing off would be maybe the thickness fo the limbs, but I'm not gonna mess with this one any more. I'm working on another picture of MKA Motaro now.

No it isnt the legs this would be flawless if there was some kind of surrouding and a solid ground showing where hes getting his foot hold to exert that much force into his actions.

Alright, though I see no point in making a picture based on the worst mistake in MK's history. Unless you're planning to give him his other two legs back?? Wait.. then he wouldnt be the "MKA" Motaro....
I dunno, i'm still mind-boggled at their whole retarded choice of adding him there with 2 less legs....

I'm making a bunch of pictures for a strategy guide that fans are making for MKA.


Motaro's legs were removed because of time constraints.

They didn't have time to spend making motaro play correctly with the rest of the characters using 4 legs. They would have to make a ton of changes just for him.


I don't like the idea of the 2 legs either, but he's still fun to use in the game and he still looks pretty cool IMO.

Awesome.
Something about the hair bugs me though.

5/5.
I am... Teh Muffs. Werdical. You about to get pwn'd. 'Fooo! Percha. 100% of MK fans like MK. If you are one of the 0% that doesn't, put this in your signature. I have a Nintendo Wii. =D

I understand that dude, but I really think it was actually MORE unfair to the fans to comprimise his look so much than not including him at all.
I'm sorry but I disagree, I really don't like his look. He looks only a fraction as menacting and diabolical than in MK3. I mean, even without the horse legs he still shoudl have towered over the other MK characters. I havent havent actually played the game yet though.
Time constraints seem to be a major problem wiht the MK team. But obviously it's something they dont really give a shit about because if they did they would have done something back in MK1 (which was also unfinished to my understanding).

You might change your mind once you use him. That is unless you have an unthwartable bias against the very idea.

If I ever play MK armageddon then I will definitely play as him after I give Rain a go. So even if his look shits me, I still love Motaro as a character enough to give his MKA incarnation a go ^_^
