'Shop Contest: Mortal Kombat Guest Characters

Illustration for article titled 'Shop Contest: Mortal Kombat Guest Characters

Mortal Kombat 11 was released earlier this week and it doesn’t have any guest characters in it, at least not yet. It will almost certainly get DLC guest characters in the future. So, let’s share some ideas and concepts for future guest fighters.


Your challenge this week: Add any video game character you want into the world of Mortal Kombat.

Don’t feel like you have to create something as violent as what I created. But also, don’t worry if you want to get more violent. This is Mortal Kombat, some blood and guts are expected.

Next week I’ll pick a winner and hand out some awards!

Please note that the image submissions rules have changed just a little bit. We’re looking for images that are 800 pixels wide now!

How To Submit — Instructions

1. Create your ‘Shop and save it to your desktop. Images must be at least 800 pixels wide.

2. Go to the bottom of this post

3. This brings up a comment window. Click “Choose file” if you’re uploading your ‘shop from your desktop

4. Alternatively, you can upload the ‘Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image’s URL into the field that says “Image URL.” Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

5. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn’t, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I will look at it.

6. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some animated .gifs upwards of 5 MB. If you’re still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels, or the whole thing under 2 MB.
