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 inSFII and one inAlpha.
