I don't know how else to say this but...

That Dragon King looks like he came off of Nick Jr. or something lol. It just looks strange, mostly because of the difference in the sprites. You just should not use sprites from completely different games unless you do some CRAZY editing to them.

I'd also fix the blood, particularly Reptile's (I take it that's blood he's laying in). It just looks green, there's no real detail in it.

I will say though I like the background, it looks cool. It's just the walkway and characters don't seem to belong there.

You're getting better though.

Dedicated, hopeless...Li Mei fan.

4 words. What were you thinking?

I have seen worse fakes, but I have seen a lot better fakes. The Dragon King sort of looks like he crawled out of 'Bear In The Big Blue House'. For a Juggernaut sprite edit, you can a hell of a lot better.

Why did you use one of the default Windows XP backgrounds for this fake? There's a level called 'Jade's Desert' with a much more detailed desert in it, instead of something Bill Gates came up with in his sleep.

The blood has just been pasted sloppily onto the chest, it doesn't look like there's been much editing on..anything, to be honest, apart from Reptile's blood puddle, which isn't too bad.

Why did you use a font from Word to type the names? An idea is to find the MK2 names, cut and paste letters from them to form the names if they aren't there, THEN paste them into the lifebars.

It's missing lifemarks, a timer, shadows (But that isn't that much of a problem)..and I guess, effort.

2/5.

I was trying to get another prespective of Jades desert (that background is played out) and it was supposed to be cartoony- thats why I used Juggy. If I wanted realism I might have edited Motaro or something.

I'm not a fan of this one.
The different elements just don't mesh together.

Yeah I get that looking back there are a lot of things I would have changed.

I don't like it.
That Dragon King fighting Shao Kahn would be as realistic as Orochi Iori fighting Gumby in my point of view. You should have taken more time with the editing on the King. I like the background though.

Hahahaha...?

I really don't like this one. The cartoon Dragon King just makes a mockery of the entire fake, dude. It looks way out of place.
