On artist Sergey Svistunov's Mortal Kombat art, Kabal and Shao Kahn (with Sub Zero hands) look like members of a vicious, post-apocalyptic gang from Mad Max, and not characters of a game with mystic realms and gods.

Their masks are so badass. There's a bunch of characters from the artist below, check out the rest on his DeviantART page. Even Cyrax looks like something from a abandoned, post-war building in the middle of the wasteland.
