Mortal Kombat X - Who's Next? by ARCrebs Mortal Kombat X - Who's Next? by ARCrebs
So the new trailer for Mortal Kombat X came out the other day, and I literally lost my shit. It was probably one of the most beautiful things I've seen in years and got me all kinds of hyped up. I watched it a few times, drooled over Scorpion's new costume design on their site, and thought about it all night while I tried to sleep. I had to create a fan art. And I love Scorpion. He's probably my favorite ninja of all time, and I've dug him since I was a little girl, so I have no clue why I've never done any art of him before. Anyway, hope you all enjoy. That costume was a beast to create as there wasn't a whole lot of reference to go off of other than the trailer and the High res waist up photos on their site. And I noticed some differences between the two, so I hope it's accurate enough. So much detail in that suit! I would hate to render that sucker!

Photoshop CS3 - roughly 12 hours.
Textures really bring things to life. I used a multitude of textures from Texturez.com. Feel free to click on the Download button to see all the detail in the image.
I do not own Scorpion or Mortal Kombat. They belong to NetherRealm Studios & Warner Brothers.
Art by me, A. R. Crebs. :D

Are there any tutorials anywhere to do this kinda stuff in PS?

ARCrebs Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I don't have a tutorial for this particular piece, but I do have one for another piece that focuses on the same style and techniques that were used for this one. You can check that out Here
I also have another for a more 'cartoony' look Here 
Hope they help! :D

So you drew Scorp in PS and then coloured it? I use PS quite a bit, but I'm garbage at drawing. ):

Thanks for the help !

ARCrebs Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, I did the entire process in Photoshop.
I used to draw on paper and scan it in, but that process got tiresome and the quality wasn't always the best. So, I invested in getting myself a tablet. I'm still not the best at drawing with a tablet (pressure sensitivity helps a lot!)...but the colors really make a difference. If you have good color, value, and form, you don't really need "Lines" per say. Sometimes a messy sketch will do. ;)

Pretty cool picture! I'm planning to cosplay the MK X version of Scorpion in the near future (as soon as there are more reference pictures, like you said, right now, there aren't many of them). And yes, Scorpion is the best Ninja of all time^^

Thanks! Scorpion is definitely the best. I checked out your cosplay of him. Very cool! Let me know when you get the MKX costume made up! Would love to see it. ;) It's going to be a lot of work!

Thanks! ;) I have MK9 Kollector's Edition, and the box was decorated with some shadow art. So I kind of wanted to play off that idea.
