I'm a huge Mortal Kombat fan. So much so that more often than not, my decision to buy a new console has been driven by the next Mortal Kombat game in the pipeline. I bought my N64 in anticipation of Mortal Kombat Trilogy, I bought my PS2 for Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, and now that Mortal Kombat X is on the horizon, I'll be facing that decision again in the next few months. I've narrowed it down to this: I'm either going to buy a PS4 or get MKX on Steam.
If I get the PS4 version, I'll at least know that I'm experiencing the game as the creators intended because the hardware is standardized. There will likely be less bugs/glitches/other issues because of that. Also, I'm already on PSN, so I can continue to use my account. Finally, a PS4 will be less expensive than a new computer (if necessary), and may be less expensive than upgrading my computer.
But these days, I find that I greatly prefer staying on my PC and playing games through Steam to firing up a console. And my PC is always online, whereas it's a pain in the ass to get my PS3 online (I don't know if this is true of PS4). But I want at least the same quality of graphics that you can get on the PS4, and I don't know if my PC (which was pretty current when I bought it in August 2011) can handle that. There's a good chance I'll have to upgrade my PC or even buy a new one to get the graphics I want, and that could be very expensive.
Xbox One is not under consideration because I wouldn't be able to use my PSN or Steam accounts. And I'm not buying MKX for last-gen consoles.
So, any advice on what I should do? PS4 or PC?

I will take commissions. I don't actively solicit them, but you're welcome to note me about them. I don't have a price list posted because it's not finalized yet, but I will get back to you with a price. I take Paypal, checks, and money orders.
I am open to art trades. If you want to do a trade, send me a note with your proposal and we will discuss. As for requests, I normally only take them if I love your idea so much that I absolutely have to draw it, but for special occasions (which will be announced in my journals), I do make exceptions.
Suggestions on how I can improve my art or my characters are always welcome.
Also, please be advised that I do not RP. I can't even figure out how a normal person is supposed to act in the real world, so forget about me playing an imaginary creature.
Other artists' drawings of my characters:
Eggplantm drew me a great picture of Turja with his character Taurus (top left) as a prize for winning a guessing game. I liked it so much that I commissioned him to draw Austra (top center-left), Sadie (top center-right), Ambiri (top right), Turja and Lacerta together (bottom left), a whole bunch of my ladies out on the town (bottom center-left), and a poster for Austra's movie "Agent Pink" (bottom center-right). I can't stop paying this guy to draw my characters! I also got Ming (bottom right) for entering his Zodiac fanart contest.
Also check out these two from Itchyscratchy:
On the left is a sweet-looking Sadie, and on the right is Lacerta with his character Beak Freak Geek.
And JoshuaVillaniStudios did a nice pretty Turja for me:
Zombies love stealing Loopy's shoes! Finally, this awesome gift art from Souzousha featuring Austra with his character Zuriel:
