Woah, k somebody really exagerated giving Zombie 5 dragons =/. I sort of don't like it. The lifebars are perfect. The edits on Reptile is frawless I like the rip cloth detail a lot! The bg doesn't well fit to Mk world in fact it looks like a real Forest with some edits here and there. KungLao looks like his just looking at the cut, make him look like his in pain. The blood are 3 simple different pallet swap put together and they don't really connect.

But nice effort I guess. I like your Jax vs Kang better it was funny.

Calm down, Zombie. Sheesh. What I said was my opinion is not a fact.

Though I hardly ever do this, I'm going to have to defend Marcel. The background is far too blurred to look pixelated.

Personally, I think the forest background is pretty rad though it doesn't really remind me of the Living Forest. But like I said, I think the background is absolutely fantastic grin

Living forest or just forest?

I noticed a hard line where the background meets the floor. A good idea would be to carry over some of the vegetation and underbrush from the background so there isn't as abrupt a change.

hey people whats up

yeah its more of just a forest, i did add faces to the treees in any early verison but didn't like how it looked.

hyuga/matrix the BG is blurry?? hmm... it must be a different in screen resulution cuz in my screen its as clear as can be?.....

rameir yeah there is still a line, i did add lots of vegitaion., should of seen it earlier. i think its pretty decent still.

perterbi yeah his body is out of place,
because reptile spit acid at his chest, and its eating away at his flesh, hence you can see his rib cage. so his limbs and head are starting to fall off the body, thats why it looks out of place


hope that explains anything quesitoned...

I agree, it's a good idea for an arena. Problem is the shadows, lighting and the floor. It's lighted very much like the game would be with dense shadows and a solid floor. That works in the game because the backgrounds are animated, the floor scrolls and the shadows move. For a still like this you need to be more specific with the lighting.

A forest would have more abient and diffused light because of the foliage. Therefore the shadows would be scattered all over the place making it very undefined. It should be brighter up front to match the backgrounds intensity. And the floor, well I've already said. Place some branches, bushes or grass to make it blend better with the background. Right now it looks like a room with a forest painted on a wall.

I kind of reject this notion that fakes need to be perfect copies of the way the games are presented. What is the point of doing one if you are just going to copy Midway. Sure that makes it easier but do the extra work and make it more realistic. Look at the way MaxDam does his. I don't consider his fakes, they are much more artistic than that.

Hopefully that clarifies what I was trying to say earlier. I get what the characters are doing, that looks good. I really like Kung Lao's face pointed at the injury, nice touch.

Take it easy

"Living forest or just forest?"

A tree doesn't need a face to be alive. All forests are living. :P
