Baraka has been loooong over due. I had at least three different versions worked on in between other projects before I finally focused just on him. I actually sketched it on an app on my ipad first then imported it into Photoshop. I wanted an action pose for baraka all my other sketches were to static and boring. The only thing is I should have fixed the composition to display more of his blades. Done in Photoshop CS5 with Wacom tablet.
P.S. How does Baraka bend his arms when his blades are in?
I’m a huge Mortal Kombat fan and I like even more Jade. She’s my favorite female fighter from the series (next to Frost). This is the first time I’ve done something related to Jade and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!. Hopefully I’ll do more Jade fan art.
