I would like to give BIG "thank you" to all sprite artists! Not only the ones in MMV here but also the ones in other MUGEN places.
MUGEN is incredibly fun, I guess it cannot be denied?
To me, 80% of MUGEN content is sprites. It is like the "The human body is 80% water" phrase.
As a MUGEN fan who don't have any drawing talent/skill (like, merely a simple Franken-spriting a jumping upper body into a crouching lower body took me several hours ), I admire those who can draw so much that I sometimes envy them ("I wish I can draw something".......in my everyday dream... .....). I have a few artist friends and when there is a pen in their hands, just anything, imaginable & unimaginable, can be drawn by them. This is a magic to me really. So you sprite artists are truely magicians! Without your magic, MUGEN contents cannot be so rich!

le doy las gracias por lo que a mi me toca,y ademas secundo su agradecimiento a todos esos spriters que consiguen hacer que nuestra imaginacion vuele con cada trabajo que realizan ....personas positivas como usted hacen que el trabajo en mugen merezca la pena. I thank you so my turn, and also seconded to thank all those who get spriters make our imagination fly with every work done .... positive people like you make that work worthwhile mugen .
Ah, yes! As much as I love making sprites with 3D models, nothing beats some good ol' classic true spriting. My appreciation goes out to you artists as well!
Sprites used in MUGEN include both 2D and 2.5D and 3D and whatever-D as long as they are PCXs/PNGs "put-able" in MUGEN SFF files. So your awesome XNALara 2.5D/3D sprites and LM_MAVERIK's 2.5D/3D sprites have the equal importance as that of pure 2D pixels!

uh, not sure if you all would consider me a sprite artist yet,.. actually, wtf am i saying i made a char,... but people might not call me one yet, but i don't care,........ you're welcome Borewood, and I am actuallyworking on my second char as of now (at the same time as doing any fixes anyone asks of me concerning Emperor Sin)
While some MUGEN fans say, "sprites are not the only thing that makes a MUGEN character", I still want to say that, without interesting and unique sprites, there is no character in a MUGEN character at all!
For example, Capcom hasn't made a 2D Dormammu (ever?), so it is up to all interested MUGEN artist fans to try to sprite one. Some time ago a Japanese MUGEN creator ahuron made a 2D Dormammu, with only SNK KOF Rugal 2D sprites (D-Rugal).
When comparing to the true MvsC3 Dormammu version by Capcom:
It plays well but it is not the true Dormammu. It cannot show Dormammu's real character. A true Dormammu needs the actual Dormammu 2D sprites like this:
This is why and when and where talent 2D sprite artists (MUGEN fans as well) are needed very much.
