Okay, but about Sukapon. It seems as if when he is done, he will be about 10 or so separate images.
One of the big things I was working on was a character designer:
I think for Sukapon, this would be really useful, because after you get the sprites made, you can assemble all of the animations directly into the game this way.
This may or may not solve the problem of people arguing what characters should be in the game, as any character made using this after the release of the game could be considered downloadable content. But I was originally planning to have this character designer to make it easier for me to add in 30+ characters by hand, not really to allow it to be possible for anyone to make a character.
