Mortal Kombat combines two deep loves of our animators here at Powerhouse: storytelling and fighting games. We got the opportunity to take classic fighters from the Mortal Kombat franchise, like Liu Kang and Scorpion, and paint them in their full victorious glory for each final sequence. Our animators illustrated the fighters and their environments in Photoshop and finalized the moving illustrations in After Effects with flames, sparks, movement, and more. We’re proud to say that only the toughest of contenders get to see our victorious final sequences. That is, if the YouTubers don’t post it up first.
