Scorpion Portrait by joshwmc Scorpion Portrait by joshwmc
Another addition to my Mortal Kombat gallery, I've had a few requests for Scorpion so I figure may as well do him next. Kept the painting a bit loose and rough, used the MK v DC Universe costume as the base for the design. Done in Painter using Gouache and Sponges, with a touch of Photoshop for some slight colour alterations, about 7 hours work.

I think it was a good call you used the MK VS. DC design as the basis in this case... some people have complained about his mask in MK9 looking like a facehugger that shriveled and died. I don't quite view it that badly, but I do have to say it was rather weak-looking compared to what he wore in a (not terrible, but still) lower-quality game.

The hand/arm seems a little bit too small, except from that, this work is really good! I like the feeling of it.

It's missing something from the main part of the costume in comparison with his mask, but overall I like it. I really like how you brought his eyes out, I think it adds a lot more depth to his face and character. I'm playing MK9 right now on my 360, and I love the fact they show more of his history and story. <3

I gotta say this.

This is by far the best scorpion art I saw in deviantart. Man, your details are just awesome.

My MK deviations pales in comparison to this. [link]
Awesome dude! hehehe.

Anyway, did you sketch this on a paper first for the outline or all of this are done on a computer?
