I haven't posted here for like five years and I am kind of nervous about it because the posts are just so freaking awesome these days and I feel humble amongst all of you illustration and concept rock stars. These concepts of Mortal Kombat characters I did while working for Midway games on my own time.
I had wrote a pitch for an MK game that would go back to basics with all the original characters just redesigned to look like the game was made for the first time today. The pitch was pretty cool but unfortunatly for me the MK team already had bigger and better idea's lined up with the franchise.
So here are the concepts:
Scorpion as a wraith wearing the yellow blood of the demon that helped him resurrected to exact his revenge against his mortal enemy.
Raiden as a god who's feet rarely touch the ground.
Sonya, the daughter of a Texas Ranger who's sex appeal weakens her opponents while her Special Forces training kicks their asses.
Kano, half Japanese half US military bad ass.
These are the only four characters I designed and presented with the pitch. The game idea is definatly not going to happen now that I no longer work there. I still would like to one day redesign all the rest of the original characters if I ever find the time.
thanks for looking.
