Johnny Cage from Mortal Kombat II on the living forest stage for the Game Art HQ Mortal Kombat tribute.

After the first tournament, Johnny Cage disappears following Liu Kang into the Outworld. In this place, the balance of the Earth Realm will be decided on another MK tournament. And also another fantastic script for johnny's newest movie!

Johnny Cage is mostly known for his punch in the crounch move, but I portrayed the Shadow Kick, my favourite special from the Martial Arts Superstar. If I remember right, it was easy to execute- back, forward, kick!

Also one of my favourites is the infamous living forest stage from MK II. These haunted woods have living trees with faces that groan in hunger. So the unsuspecting traveler will often times become it's prey, ending devoured. As a kid I thought that it was possible to execute a fatalaty in this stage in wich one of the trees would eat the fallen fighter, but I guess it was just a rumour.
One neat fact is that sometimes Smoke can be seen lurking in the background, behind one of the trees!
This stage has so much happening, that it's impossible not to love it!

As usual I used a regular pencil, white paper, black inks and coloured in Photoshop.

Please enjoy!
