Here's the thing, I've been working on the prizes for the Kreate – a – Kombatant Kontest since the winners were announced. However, due to my schedule and my job search, it's been taking a lot longer than expected. So, I apologize for that (but you will be getting your prizes).


However, as a consolation, I'll be sharing with you something that I've been working on for a while. I've been attempting to write a Mortal Kombat novel (that spans the storyline from Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero and Mortal Kombat: Special Forces to Mortal Kombat: Armageddon), and along with that I've been redesigning all 63 characters (along with a number of minor characters).


So, since the prizes aren't ready yet. Here are five of my character redesigns, for the first five female ninja characters.


Enjoy!

Kombatant Description
KitanaRedesignCT For Kitana, I wanted to stray away from putting her in in a one-piece bathing suit, like she's usually been in. She (like all the characters I redesigned) deserves to wear pants. She's a princess, so I wanted to have her in something more conservative in appearance than a loin-cloth and halter-top. At the same time, though, she's a warrior, so she needs to wear something that can move around easily, so no high heels. I wanted to make sure that her shirt laced up in some way, as a nod to the fact that in the majority of her outfits there was some lace-up aspect.
MileenaRedesignCT For Mileena, she needed to wear something slutty. That goes without saying. That being said, she would be pretty conspicuous wearing a thong with suspenders (i.e. her current outfit). She needed to cover her face, but someone walking around wearing a mask looks pretty odd – so I decided to go wit ha scarf instead. I tried to make her look as similar to Kitana as I could (aside, of course, from her Tarkatan features). Because of her more sexual nature, I felt comfortable putting her in heels.
JadeRedesignCT For Jade, I wanted to make her a warrior first. I decided to stray away from any sort of jewelry or anything extra. She needed to look like she kicks ass! For her weapon, I decided to give her a spear instead of a staff for two reasons: one, in many of her appearances, her staff had a spike on its end to begin with; and two, I wanted to differentiate her from Raiden, who in my redesign of him, I gave a staff. I placed some purple feathers at the tip of her staff as an homage to how her staff glows in the game.
KhameleonRedesignCT For Khameleon, I wanted to remember, first of all, that she's from Zaterra. As such, I spent a lot of time making sure her facial features looked very reptilian, and to make sure that she had scales. I made her white and gray, as an homage to her appearance in Mortal Kombat Trilogy, but I wanted to provide clues to the fact that she's a combination of the other four female ninjas (i.e. her belt). I gave her twin cat o' nine tails as a weapon to represent her multifaceted nature.
TanyaRedesignCT For Tanya, I tried to think of her as a businesswoman and the ambassador that she is. I tried made her look very professional, while at the same time remembering that she was a warrior. I decided to give her a little bit of an Egyptian vibe (with the snake bracelet and the jewelry), because I got that feeling from her appearance in Mortal Kombat: Deception. For a weapon I opted to give her her boomerangs from Mortal Kombat 4 instead of the kobu jutsu, but I added blades to the end of them to make them sort of a melee weapon as well.
