I was thinking the same thing, but a much more mature UR... If you look closely, the sprites are edited a bit, and the background actually meshes very well together.

Overall, it's a very realistic looking fake.

Did you do the Nightwolf (With the green wolf effect) fake, Fed? This reminds me a lot of that one.

The effects look great, the lightning isn't overdone, and the colors all blend very well for a clean & crisp image.

I hope I didn't offend with the UR comment, because this is actually beautiful, it just has a UR feel to it with the effects you used.
Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but some peoples' eyes need some serious medical attention.

Yeah that nightwolf one was mine, I've been wanting to do a similar piece to that for ages with a different character glasses. No offense taken man, at either of you. I'd be lying if I said I put as much time and effort into this as I usually do.

I'm glad you appreciate the background K1LLKANO cos that actually did take some work to get right. Bleed gave me some awesome tips a while back on how to make distance & perception look more realistic, so I'm glad you thought it was successful.

Effects: No, this fake isn't your best but it works very well for what it is, the dragon is a great effect and lightning looks quite nice. The mist over the water is perfect.

Sprites: They look perfect for the situation, the colours of their outfits compliment the background quite nicely.

Background: Superb, I love it. Very Mortal Kombat, yet still very real looking. Water, something I don't think is seen enough of in MK, even if only in the background, the body of water here adds so much to the background. If there was a hybrid of MKII dark atmosphere with MK1's asian architecture and design, it would be this.

I have an awful habit of cluttering fakes with overly complex sprites and backgrounds and effects. You are able to find perfect balance and I envy that. A great fake. Very well done.

You rarely see fakes that seem to pay homage to the classic MK1 so I defintely like this fake a lot. It's not really your style but I can see you were experimenting with some effects. Great job, bro. smile.

0 / 5... 'nuff said, u noob



I agree with illu§ion about paying homage ot MK1. I definitely don't see that very often, and I personally hate using their sprites because they "R TEH SUX kwalitee" - venomark

I wouldn't really say this looks like a UR fake simply because the background and the props go together. That and there isn't an overuse of picture tubes (or whatever you call them). I like MK1 backgrounds because I admire the asian architecture. But what I'm not too fond of us the Pit 1 being back there. I like the effects, but I think the lightning should be blue-ish. I am not too sure why Smoke's smoke is forming a dragon, but it definitely looks cool.

Because it was more than obvoius some one or some people gave you zero dragons, I gave you 5 to bump it up to where the score should be (in the 3.5 - 4 area)

Mutha fucka, if you wanna impress me with you're PIX skills, fix sonya's face on the MKvsDC render sad

Well it's obvious he isn't going to make a picture just showing someone on some spikes or some piled mess of gibs because that would just look horrendous. I give it a 2/5 because the effects are there but that's about as good as it gets.

I think it looks nice, and the level compliments the fight scene too.

@ Keith: Thanks man glad you liked it.

@ illu§ion: yeah mk1 fakes always strike a good cord with me too. It was visually a beautiful game

@ XTREEMIST: hehe I used the ink blotter to capture the purpleish tinge of MK1 Raiden’s lightning, but it definitely doesn’t come out the same when you add it to an effect =P. Oh and my PIX skills suck...

@ ThaReal: Can’t it be a pit without having a bridge? He can still be uppercutted off.

@ everyone else: thanx for the comments!

Good job. But it kind of reminds me of an overused comment:

If you don't know what's going on, nobody else is going to know what's going on.

I like it. The fact that you used the MK1 sprites gives a true MK feel.
Good job!
