Apart from the shirtlessness, his design is incredible and suits him very well. I like that you've stepped away from the "wrapped in black leather pieces" of his mask but still kept the flowing ribbons (?) at the back of his head.
It turned out great, I love his outfit & mask! The pose is epic, and very fitting The shirtlessness is cool, I would've never thought it'd work for someone like Ermac. And much better than Johnny's tattooed chest, haha!
On a sidenote, it looks like an "artist" ripped off your other Ermac fanart [link]
Thanks for the heads up, I was at work all day yesterday and by the time I got home, it was self deleted or removed by dA. Appreciate ya lookin' out though! Was MileenaK the other one that noticed it as well? I'd like to drop by and thank her as well if so.
BTW, are you getting hyped now that MK is going back to it's origins, or are you still watching hesitantly from the edge of the dance floor?
No problem Yes, it was probably her, I can't fully remember the username but it certainly was a Mileena fan who posted the first warning. The deviation eventually got removed by the DA admins I most likely wasn't the only one who reported it, LOL, it was so obvious!
Hehe, I think I'm watching from the edge of the dancefloor, moving a bit to the rhythm but I know I'll never dance like crazy again I'll buy the game when it comes out, that's for sure. But artistically, I doubt I'll get back into creating MK fanart. A few stray pieces every now and then - at most.
MK1 subby being the one he takes off Chi's head? I don't remember any other Sub-Zero ones. As for the Reptile Sheeva one, I don't think that ever materialized into a finished drawing. It was on PSP8, so I don't even have access to the file any more
Mmm is that the fake? It wasn't a fake. I remember it being in the large group of pieces you posted when I first took notice back on MKInformer, but it was definitely MK1 Subby, in fact, I believe he was the beheaded one lol. And dang, no biggie though, it still exists in my memory. ;D
Yeah, you're going even further back than sheva now. That was a Scorpion pic with Sub's head on a pike. It had Moloch in there too. Another psp8 pic, but I think I've got the pieces of that one around. I still use Sub's noggin as an avatar from time to time.
