Chun-Li: Sprites Over The Years by TheMikko Chun-Li: Sprites Over The Years by TheMikko
Despite the title, these sprites aren't, far as I know, in chronological order per se, but at least I start with the original and end with the latest one, going for a sort of showing the evolution angle. Just wanted to pay some tribute to the first lady of fighting games, though of course she isn't TECHNICALLY first, Yie Ar Kung Fu and it's sequel had the first female fighting game character and the first playable one respectively, but Chun-li is first in our hearts, the one that drove home the point that women do have a place in the genre and can go toe-to-toe with the men. I first played Chun-Li on my copy of Street Fighter II on my Amiga 500, I don't think it was even the Championship Edition, though my memory may fail me on that, and to this day I would not describe myself as a good Chun-Li player by ANY stretch, maybe not even a passable one. lol Still she holds a place in my heart and as a fan of female fighters in general I have great appreciation for the role she has played in the genre.

For those wondering, the games the sprites are from are, from left to right, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter Alpha/Zero 2, SF Alpha/Zero 3 (both Alpha costumes used in the Marvel vs series as well), SF the Movie The Game, SNK vs Capcom for the Neo Geo Pocket, Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix aka Pocket Fighter, Street Fighter III: Third Strike, Capcom vs SNK, SNK vs Capcom: SVC Chaos and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. The background is from Street Fighter II.

Chun-Li and Street Fighter are trademarks of Capcom

Well, one could do a 3D model version of this.  Remember you have the Street Figher EX series to use.

True, so it'd be EX, SF4, MvC3, TvC... I think that's all though. With sprites I could've done one or two other games too, but I wanted to stick to sprites in fighting games.

That's technically not a sprite so I think he left it out intentionally :)

Yeah, this. Polygonal models aren't sprites. I DO like her model in IV though. I'm one of those who appreciate the exaggerated proportions.

I agree, her IV model just managed to stay loyal to her spirit, and keeps all her exaggerated features of Chun Li we know so well :)

Exactly. She's always been "the strongest woman in the world", that MIGHT mean having some muscle on her. lol
