That is friggin awsome!
I love the detail, and the ripped clothing looks pretty DAMN fine.
The only thing I dont agree with is Scorpy's eyes. They dont seem to exist.
friggin awsome,

This is great! I really like the foreshortening job you did, and I see that you like the original concept Art of Scorpion for MKDA the best too huh? grin

Good use of shading and colours on the whole and little details such as the steam crack where his foot touches the ground make it an overall great piece of Art!

This gets a rare 5 Dragon vote from me! wink

Wow, I must say this is pretty excellent! I love the colors you used here, I think it fits Scorpion quite well. I sword looks brilliant, and I love the details on his right wrist, I am really liking that taped look. Its cool to see him actually using one of his swords, nice job there. The spear is nice of course, and the whole chain its running on looks well drawn, colored, and shaded. The only thing is the eyes, I can't tell is he has them closed or not, but the rest of this is just so awesome I am going to give you 5 dragons anyway.

Wow that is really cool, i can see nothing wrong with it at all. You are a really great at drawing. But there is one thing i dont like, how u made his get over here thing a chain and not coming out of his hand, it sorta takes the scropion feel from him, well thats just me. Still really awesome! 5/5

Sweet work man. Everything seems good to me. The only problem that i see is there could have been the eyes. But other than that this is some great work. Keep it up.

Thanks a lot for the comments.The thing with the eyes is that I wanted the shadow to cover his eyes completely.I guess it didn't work that well.And I didn't draw the spear coming out of his hand because in the first Scorpion concept for MKDA he appears holding the the chain with the spear and that's how I wanted it to be.

Darn! You said it all! Yeah! 5 bonus points on the foreshortening. Very original, and you pulled it off nicely. *cheers* Yay for true and original ideas! *gives it a 5*

This is magnificent... and scary to me at the same time...

You see, this easily deserves 5 dragons; it has excelsior shading and anatomical accuracy.

The weird thing is that I can give you pointers on how to improve, things to think about when doing this design of Scorp in the future, and how this could have done better, but there is no possible way that I myself could do any better even if my life depended on it. This has never bothered me more than it has today. Wonder what it is...

Please feel free to elaborate on the pointers.I'll be glad to know what to change or improve in my submissions.

Well, there are only about 3 things to say, and like I said, I can't draw better, so you can choose to pay attention to me or not. Hell, I could be just 'hallucinating' when I tell you these hints and there could be nothing really wrong.

1. Where is Scorpion running to? It looks like he's running at the viewer, but his foot would tell otherwise. If he's running in the direction of his foot, then his shin pad says otherwise.

2. The spikes on his left shoulder pad look like they're pointing out too far in their direction. It could just be me, since Scorpion is 'reaching down' with his left arm.
But one hint of definite advice is that when drawing something resembling a pyramid (in this case, the spikes) from from any view where the lateral edges aren't apparent, there have to be at least 'disappearing and reappearing' lines from the top of the spikes to the 'base'. Maybe some shading on one of the sides this would create.

3. This is only a suggestion, but I would recommend that you try integrating solid black lines into your metal somewhere. Keep the solid white as well. Your metal looks just fine as it is right now, so you can ignore this if you want to. If you want me to elaborate on this later however, then tell me.

4. This is only a suggestion as well, but try making some of the bandages stick out more than others. An alternative is to make each bandage look like it has individual shading.
Something like this:

Again, this is only a suggestion, so if you want me to elaborate later, then tell me.

Well I must say that this is a great piece of artwork, but I will agree with Zentile on this one with the eyes. That's my only little problem with this drawing, but other than that, it's very well detailed and colored so I also have to give it 4.5 out of 5 Dragons.

That's quite a good eye you got there.
1. Damn, I didn't think anybody would notice but yeah I admit I made a little mistake there, only thing is that I noticed it after I did the inking so it was too late for me to fix it. I should have made the foot aiming more to the lower left corner of the paper.

2. I also forgot to shade the shoulder pad spikes. When you draw you got to look at every single detail no matter how diminute it is if you want it to be a great piece of art. I guess I was a little careless.

3. I understand what you said about the metal, and I've seen it and I think it looks cool when people incorporate that technique, but I just wasn't feeling too confident in doing it that way since I haven't used that technique that much, and I thought I could've messed it up.

4 I also forgot that little detail. I really think that if I would've looked at all those details while I was creating my piece of art it would've had a better overall look. Thanks for studying my work, axeman61.

Really, the eyes are not an issue, it is personal choice, but less subjective things are the foot pointing the wrong way and no indication of his other leg at all ( it is unrealistic to assume he has it bent straight up against his back) and his body posture is set as it would be if his OTHER leg was forward, giving the overall impression that his body and legs are completely detatched from eachother. The color job is great, and the detail is very neat and consistent, 3.5/5

um, except for the physically inept, it is quite possible to get your body into that configuration. (look at pro baseball pitchers) he just didnt represent the hip on the left at all and the leg on that side seems to just end behind his arm. the pose is very possible. but some better planning could have helped. for instance, if you used the method of drawing the simple shapes to represent body parts before adding in greater detail (circles, cones, rectangles, squares, dodecahedrons, you get the idea), it's important to draw ALL of the body portions, even the ones that will be hidden from view in the final work. this will help prevent those cases of bodily dismemberment that scorpion is suffering from in this image. i do agree with you about the foot though, it should be facing to the left instead.

Yes, please pay attention the next time you read a post. I said it was unrealistic, not impossible. I am not flaming the pic, it has plenty of good points, but the foreshortening is not particularily accurate. And seeing as human posture and muscle structure is for the most part non-debatable, you cannot really have an "opinion" about it. He could have (almost) solved this problem simply by pointing the foot the other way.
