Happy little splatters

We're excited to bring you some Mortal Kombat art from the talented Nick Huddleston as we check out some up-close and often bloody headshots of some of the franchise's most recognizable fighters.

Though these certainly have a cartoon feel about them, the intensity of the expressions and the tasteful smattering of blood in many give these pieces a very tangible creepy component that we just can't shake.

Our selection includes the likes of Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Mileena, Kitana, Liu Kang, Kano, Goro, Shang Tsung, Johnny Cage, Reptile, Baraka, and Raiden.

Many of these characters take the forms of their earlier appearances as we see MK1 Shang and Kano while we get the MK2 versions of Mileena and Kitana.

Huddleston made a light-hearted addition to his Scorpion image in the form of a somehow very appropriate Bob Ross. Ross adds the key ingredient to the picture: some happy little blood splatters.
