I really hated my last Kitana drawing so I redrew it with her in her primary MK9 costume. I like drawing it better than her alternative. It's hard to capture their face shapes on paper x.x
I tried a different technique suggested by my boyfriend, some highlights on certain parts of her body as if light was bouncing off. I should note that my shading and lighting is never exact. I never try to make the shading/highlights look realistic. I just apply to where I see needed.
Anyway, the fan was so hard to draw! I copied the blades and pasted them, but most copies came out strange so I had to redraw over the copies and get them all lined up perfectly. It was hard! I enjoyed drawing her face and body though. I love the designs in MK, I just wish they would give them more hips, stomach and less balloon shaped breasts. I hope I captured it more realistically.
I plan to redraw a couple of pieces and draw some new people. I doubt I will draw every character though unless there is high demand.
I hope you all enjoy though! I apologize for the wait. I have been writing for an upcoming Mortal Kombat site called "The Kombat Tabloid" the UK's first MK fansite! It launches in June. I am so excited to see it finished!
