Ha ha vvicked! grin

That's a nice, simple Scorpion edit. Neat seeing a DA era fake.

Drahmin looks pretty cool! One of the things I really like about that sprite in particular is that it remains fairly consistent with the look of the digitized characters, but I can't all together place how it was made. If you can make a sprite and not have it obviously look like a mix of Jax, Kano, and MK3 Sub-Zero, you're on to something pretty cool!

If there's one glaring critique, it's probably the club.
It's hard to tell if it's an issue of angles, or if it just looks a fair bit on the short side. Should probably extend higher up on his arm and maybe look a bit... less organic, shall we say?

I quite like the Scorpion! It's always cool when a fake goes the extra mile to create a new character for the victim. Doesn't do much for the plausibility of the image, which I guess is why you might use a conventional existing opponent, but it shows much more ingenuity and design.

MKDA Scorpion is easily my favourite of the designs, but I'm not entirely sure about the little nublet thingys on his overthrow ninja sash thing. They look a little bit too contrasted against the bright yellow in the sprite, and even in the real design, they're probably not something I'm very fond of. I could probably do without the skull belt too, but in terms of accuracy, that looks really cool, too. The skull maybe looks a bit out of place in digitized era terms, but it's a really good effort! Wristpads are great!

Nice dude. I gotta say it's a very well structured fake. I like the concept and the way you executed it.

I agree, it could probably have been longer. You should have seen the first one I did. It was like half the size of what you see now.

Thanks guys.
