Fatal Friday in the Lost City has Sektor today.
The red cyber ninja was easily my favorite character when Mortal Kombat 3 came out. Sektor simply appealed to me in some way and I found him to be exceptional to play as.
I believe this is the second or third piece of Mortal Kombat fanart I produced. I wasn’t going to any particular style with this redesign, though I did work in some fun elements.
Sektor’s helmet is derived from the design of the “Predator” mask. I was (and still am) a fan of the Predator franchiase so I worked some of that into the image. I also worked a few elements unique to Sektor into this drawing. Sektor has a teleport ability and his “Animality” had him transform into a bat. For this drawing I have him teleporting, with the smoke from his teleport taking the form of bats. I don’t think that part translated very well, but regardless, Sektor is awesome!
Photomanipulation of myself as Mr Burns from the Simpsons.
Being afflicted with pattern baldness, I’ve been shaving my head of and on for around 10 years. A few years back after letting my hair grow for a while, my wife shaved my head for head. She decided to have fun with the clippers and shaved a huge cul-de-sac into my hair before finishing the job. Whilst I sported “The Fringe” she took a some photos, some of which I struck a Mr Burns like pose. Fast forward a few years and I finally sat down and messed around with the photo and this is the end result…me as Mr Burns.
This Anhk Scarab tattoo design is the basic outline for the back piece I plan on having done.
The full design of for the anhk scarab tattoo includes colour (mostly gold and purple) and many more details including my name and the names of my wife and children in Hieroglyphs.
The wings of the anhk scarab tattoo will extend across my shoulders with the “loop” going up my neck. Looking forward to when I can get this done (probably by Derek at FXInk in the West Edmonton Mall)
Photomanipulation of Kid Quantum 2 from the Legion of Superheroes.
This manip of Kid Quantum is the first I created in a new series of Legion of Superheroes based photomanips centered on the post Zero Hour Legion.
Sumner Kagan is (was?) my character for DnD 3rd edition.
He was a Shadow Dancer and was accompanied by a halfling woman called Luciana.
So here is the story of Sumner Kagan’s name, as with so much else I do, it is derived something I enjoy.
I’ve been working on a comic story for the majority of my life. Eventually, as the story evolved, it became known as Radix (still is, website coming soon). While browsing a bookstore one day I stumbled across a book called Radix by A.A. Attanasio
Of course I bought the book just because of its title and it turned out to be very good (still have to track down an read the other 3 books he wrote). The main character in the book was named Sumner Kagan and the name stuck with me. When time came to roll up my Shadow Dancer I gave him the name from Radix, Sumner Kagan.
This photomanipulation of Andromeda is part of a much larger photomanipulation I call “The Mother of all Legion Manips” (to be posted soon).
Andromeda is a Supergirl “replacement” and has similar powers, though Andromeda is from Daxam rather than Krypton like Supergirl.
Above is my Supergirl wallpaper.
When browsing the fabulous tubes of the interwebs I encountered the original image of this young lady. I exclaimed to myself “Self, now THAT is Supergirl!!” I loaded her up in my trusty weapon of choice at the time (Photoshop 7 I think) and set to work. The image to the left is the result of my efforts which turned out pretty good. I liked it so much I made a Supergirl wallpaper from the image. You will also see that this is the Supergirl who appears in my near infamous “Mother of all Legion Manips” (to be posted soon).
All in all this Supergirl wallpaper is one of my favorite photomanipulations. There are some flaws of course. This version of Supergirl is the 80′s version who guest starred in the Legion of Superheroes so she is missing her red headband. Her skirt also looks a little flat.
It’s Fatal Friday again here in the Lost City, today we have Meat
This is a more recent redesign of Meat from Mortal Kombat, created shortly after the release of Mortal Kombat 9.
I originally made this as an entry for the “Love for the Unloved” contest over on DeviantArts MK Rebirth group.
So I was thinking about what could make Meat more interesting and fun to play? Really not a lot I can do to a flayed man to make hime more visually interesting.
Then it hit me…what if, in the new timeline established in MK9, Shang Tsung’s experiment was not human, but Tartakan.
After all he does has a history of Tartakan experimentation.
Thus we have another Tartakan/Human hybrid, this time resulting in Meat.
That was the basis for Meat’s general look. His costume is clearly inspired by Mileena Flesh Pit costume.
This Butterfly tattoo is a commissioned piece, done for a friend around 2001.
She wanted a butterfly tatto that incorporated her initials in some way. I worked her initials into the wing on this butterfly tattoo. She has since told me that she has gotten the tattoo on her shoulder,I’ll try and get a picture of it in the future
