MK Artwork (MisuCra)

Yeah, I understand. Motion is one of the things I always tend to keep in mind. And her hair was supposed to look like it was going up, but it was lost in translation, when I mixed up two styles in chaotic mess. This time I will go for more anime(sh) style with thicker lineart so it should be way easier for me to make are more flexible position. She indeed looks too stiff.

Forgot to upload it here. In case anyone still plays MK9 and was looking for female skins (They technically count as Art as I had to paint that stuff) here is download link https://www.deviantart.com/misucra/art/Mortal-Kombat-9-TRIBAL-SKIN-PACK-779684366

People have been pestering me FOR YEARS, since I lost my original hard drive, so I though I had lost all of them, but turns out, I forgot I had them stashed away in online storage (in case my hard drive got nuked)

Might as well start putting back some MK related stuff.

Early sketches. Got the general look, now just need to refine it and add/remove certain details.

Thanks to [MENTION=4889]BBBLP[/MENTION] I got an inspiration for Skarlet outfit. I think this one sets in the final look for her.

Now I can start refining her.

Ah I see. Nice idea then. I thought the Shadow Priests were great in Conquest. The actor was also pretty good and fcking strong.

Yeah I want to keep her ability of absorbing blood through skin, by exposing the said skin, but also want her to feel menacing.

Will need to work with her skin though. I want to add some Tattoos on her that represent Blood Magik. Imagine something like Blueprints on her body or... factory number.

According to MK9, I got an impression that her entire existence came to be, thanks to Blood Magik, and Shao Kahn himself had a hand in her creation.

I imagine he had Shadow Priests work the factory (they are known to be Master Sorcerers and the only ones Shao Kahn can trust completely), but then it came to imprinting, it was Shao Kahn himself. For example at final stages he put his blood in the blood pool, so to bond Skarlet to him.

So I am thinking that she should be this assassin version of Shadow Priest.

I played with some ideas about her hairstyle first.

Trying to create some exotic looks that would make her stand out from the rest of female ninjas. After all Jade, Kitana and even Mileena (being a clone) come from Edenia. So they have their own look going, but Outworld is harsh place that unlike Edenia has a pretty brutal environment, hence why most of citizen there have horns/spikes on their body. So I decided that Skarlet should represent that and stand out from the rest of females. Also Shao Kahn victory poses tend to show him being surrounded by beautiful females. Buuuut... after talking yesterday and remembering Shadow Priests, I think Shao Kahn prefers function over looks. So his assassin shouldn't be sporting extravagant hairstyles, but actually represent what she actually is. An Assassin, for then Shao Kahn needs a personal touch.

Literally a female version of MK Conquest Shadow Priests. Almost invincible, with only Shao Kahn holding her under control. Because I liked how Shadow Priests in Conquest there immune to Soul Stealing and other spells. They were prepped for that. So I think Shao Kahn could also have invested in her quite a lot. Protections, buffs, knowledge in Sorcery, etc.

I'm not a fan of that hairstyle. Looks like Sonic the Hedgehog or a DBZ character. Keep it simple. Nice story by the way.

Eh it is just a sketch. I am looking at Tribal hairstyles. Mixing Mohawk with other hairstyles. I am sick and tired of generic hairstyles.
