big part of my childhood was video games. nintendo. super nes. nintendo 64. although i spent the majority of the time watching my sister dl play roger rabbit, zelda, and a million other phenominal games for hours on end, i did love to play. dl and i had a special bond with the game clay fighters and now i'm craving paintings of blue suede goo and blob and ickybod clay, etc !
anyway, i did a sketch of kitana a while back and i was very excited to have the opportunity to do a nice painting of her to show my love of the 90's. mortal kombat was one of my favorite games of all time. i loved learning crazy moves for kitana and subzero, and using them repeatedly in a row until my opponent got pissed off, fed up and quit. i despised when people would do that to me. i would have liked to do a more detailed and complex tribute to MK but i cornered myself into having no time for it.. so this is the result
