Sprite Comparison

The following is a comparison of major visual modifications to Blanka and Chun-Li's in-game forms. We can observe that after Street Fighter II, Chun-Li's torso is pushed forward to better balance her stance. In SF III, it is pulled back again and straightened, and her left toe pointed. Note that her Alpha 3 sprite is pictured in her alternate costume.

Blanka, unfortunately, is only given two main sprites in the series (not including palette swaps), one in SFII and one in Alpha.

    Chun-Li's legs could snap the necks of 15 male elephants stacked on top of each other. And the Legend of Chun-Li movie wasn't very good IMO.

    Wow Tyler, nice article. Looks like a fuckton of work. I thought the character art in Capcom vs SNK 2 was the best, while I prefer the in game sprites of the alpha series.

    The best Chun-li is that presented by Jackye Chan...ahahahahah! See that video guys is awesome! ^^! Jokes are finished, the best version of Chun-Li to my opinion is that of SF III 3Rd Strike, with the awesome pose on her legs retook in the motion against C. Viper in SF IV! A sprite realized awesomely n every particular abovelall in the SenretsuKyaku! Chun-Li is the best gal's fighter in the entire world! Rulez!
