Update on his outfit, and proportions along with Liu. After reviewing the rips for la_luna, I'll have to change his robe.
I think Kang is too muscular still. Especially his arms. Will fix. Should start rigging tonight or tomorrow.
Ok that's it, let's just realize it's not going to be perfect and move on.
Bleed, I think is perfect. don't need any modification.
Mortal Gojira, About liu kang, i think he have a bigger pants. About Shang Tsung in the brown cloth ( down part ) need a vertical line or something like in this pic.
and the Katana, the rest is perfect.
It IS perfect! Can't wait to break me some Rubies with this guy.
Fantastic job man.
Shang and Liu looking badass!
Few suggestions, I think Shangs sleeves could be a little bigger.
Also I'd try stronger shadows around his eyes. They are always
in dark, like Goros. I'm not too good with Photoshop, but something
like this.. sleeves and eyes:
Oh and Kangs pants could be more baggier above the knees:

Both Lui Kang and Shang still seem to have oversized hands. The wrists seem too thick and the maybe the fingers also.
MORTAL KOMBAT ! ! !
In looking at this more...also the forearms for both characters are veryOriginally Posted by tremor_
Muscular. They don't have what I would characterize as Asian hands, wrists or forearms. Also their should be a vertical slit where the robe overlaps on left hand side of the skirt/bottom part of his robe. You are doin,g a fantastic job and I think both of these are getting close.
So I think both Kang and Tsung have proportion problems. I wasn't able to figure out what was wrong, so I sought the advice of a friend of mine who works in VFX. He quickly picked out what I couldn't see and it has to do with proportions. A tall human is 8.5 heads tall. A short human is about 7.5 heads tall I think you are clocking in at 6.5 heads tall. Since I'm betting you are more visual, as I am, my buddy did a quick photoshop mockup. Take a look so that you can see that proportions are off.

Liu Kang is the shortest character in the game I think.
Ho Sung Pak is a relatively small guy, below average height.
Judging by the game, I think it's safe to say both characters
should be around 7 heads (maybe a little more) in height:
Calactyte's proportions seem a bit off, I don't think 7.5 heads is typically "short height" proportions, and anything past 8 is kind of veering off towards comic book "heroic" proportions. While I can see that maybe the model's head is slightly out of proportion, I think something around 7 heads tall is perfectly acceptable for someone of below average height. The ideal of course would be to find a decent full body shot of Ho Sung Pak to compare the proportions to those of the model...
While we're at it, what do you guys think about the size of characters?
Should they all be the same height or different? In the arcade game
- Raiden & Kano are biggest (Raiden appears even bigger because of the hat)
- Sonya seem equal to the ninjas, maybe a bit taller (probably because of the hair)
- Scorpion, Sub Zero and Johnny Cage should all be the same because they
are all played by the same actor
- Liu Kang is the smallest, Shang Tsung appears to be a bit bigger then Kang
probably because of the robes and flying/floating, even 'tho it's the same actor.
As they stand right now, these characters have Street Fighter 2 character proportions. It works for stylized art, but not for reality. Even if it's only a half of a head based on what laluna posted, That's alot and it influences the size of the hands and the length of the arms.
