Wow, that's pretty severe, I like it.

Cut and paste but very nicely done. The picture flows well, nothing really out of place. You could have given him more of a grip on the left side but no biggy.

It is a slight improvement over the last, but of course, it's still a basic pic. This is your first (or second if you count the first version) right? Well, pretty decent for a first/second.

Here are the things you need to concentrate on, perhaps:
- Lifebars are okay, but the text within them, needs to be bigger, italic and all in capitals for MK3 fakes.
"Reptile" in the lifebar is at the wrong end.
- Are those green thingies win marks or are they eyes in teh background? Whichever, they don't work well, lol, use the original win marks, and if they are eyes, remove them, lol (mainly because there's no face of course).
- Stryker and Reptile's lifebars need to be inline with each other, I would say Stryker's is about 2 pixels low (lol, just a guess).
- In MK3 fakes, and I recently learned this too, the lifebars and texts also fade with the background.
- Speaking of which, is the background faded?
- "Reptile Wins" text should be in all capitals, and italic.
- Add some shadows for extra effect.

Good things:
+ The blood is pretty nice.
+ Simple, but reasonably well done.
+ Pretty standard/decent for first/second.

Keep it up.

Wow! You copied and pasted sprites, used a lame fatality idea, used stupid green crap for the dragon icons, and put the names in the wrong places.... GOOD JOB!

Ok, this is an improvement over the original, but there are still some things I'd like to see. Reptile still looks like he isn't holding the victims, you should edit his win pose some to get that effect. The smoke is a nice touch though, its quite good. I think the skeleton's should be worked on though, as it looks like you just palette swapped them. The idea itself isn't that original, but it still can be good if worked on a little more. The font needs to be larger, and capitalized, as this doesn't look anything like the font used in any MK. And use the regular win tokens, the dragons are much better looking than these explosions.

You could put in the shadows to help this out some. You know, this would look alot better if you tried something with that zattera BG you posted, since this fatality is being performed by Reptile, just a thought. Its just simple as is, a custom BG, or a sprite edit for Reptile maybe would liven this up some. Not bad for just your first try.

I could be wrong but aren't those the mush skeletons from when Shang does the soul steal. I'll have to refresh my memory.

LOL, yes I've done it again tongue. Sorry MK Team, don't mean to critique actual parts of the game, but in my opinion you guys should have done a little better with those skeletons!
