MK Legacy I am Lord Raiden by Esau13 MK Legacy I am Lord Raiden by Esau13
I'm a little late (and off schedule) with this image. I was inspired to do another Raiden after his reveal trailer back in July. This was my first attempt at Rain both close and far away. I thought it came out well. Obviously the outfit is his new design for MKX. You cant see much of it but its MKX. This plans to be the first image I post on the MK Kollective site that was recently made for us MK fan artists. Wish me luck on that!
Done in photoshop CS5 with wacom tablet.

LOL Thats the best Sub zero ever! I think the goal for some artists (ME) is to get it on the feature page. Ive had two featured so far, should have had more. I would like to at least have more than Flavio. I consider him my rival for MK fan art. I will say that not only did they feature my Baraka but they posted it on Facebook so that was nice. I thought they would feature my breaking the Ice pic but nope, probably cause Scorpions getting hurt. ;) Then it turned into a DD so Ill take it!

Last week I submitted them a screenshot of the MK Tribute and a link, but no reaction..guess they really don't like any MK related fan art if its not directly connected to them through such a page like the kollective. That Boon never cares about crediting anyone in tweets speaks for that too I think. Oh yes www.game-art-hq.com/79638/i-am…

Flavio is indeed your Rival. Him and Sergei /FearSas

Thanks I saw that feature before I saw your reply! I like Sergei's stuff especially his Kabal pic but he likes to add his own touch to the characters which is something I don't do a lot of. So I don't consider him to be much of a rival. Both of them are excellent artists but my passion for all things MK is unmatched.

Simply perfect. I really like it how the setting makes me think of MK4's intro. Facial features and expression are spot on. I wish NRS would release Raiden promos that are at least half this good...

You know what I didn't even think about the MK4 intro but your exactly right it makes me think the same thing now.

The rain was done perfectly although I have to say that his facial structure looks more native american than chinese. Either way it's a way better job than I can do.

Esau13 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well I never thought Raiden was completely Chinese. Its funny that you think it looks Native American like because i"m half Native American so maybe that's how I see him. I still think the rain can be better but im satisfied for my first stab at it!. Thanks!

Another Fantastic work of Art from You! Thank you for your on going creativity and fine fine detail and quality. If I didn't know any better I would have said you worked for Netherrealm with art like this lol. Please Please keep this up. Your work is inspiration to me and I say that to very few artists since normally music is my inspiration. Look forward to more. Again thank you

Does he say blot or block?

:iconazureflamegod86:
AzureFlameGod86 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2014
Well now that I think about it... He might say "block". But I'm sure it's blot. But I also think I'm miss using the word. Blot is a dark mark or stain, typically one made by ink, paint, or dirt. I think you might be right my friend.

you do some damn good raiden pieces.  while this one isn't quite as powerful as your dark raiden there is still definite power to it.  i love the lighting and textures and the fine detail you put into it.  you never cease to impress
