How do you see the already submitted pieces??

My favorite is Voldo... but he's already old lol.
Can they be one-player-type fighting games?

Hmm, I never play fighters, besides Smash Bros or this crappy godzilla game I have for the GCN. I suppose I could go with Smash Bros...

Too bad I never really played any fighting games.

Would like to have a go at this one as I love a lot of proper fighting games.  Just don't think I have the time though.  Finally (hopefully) fixed my PC after two weeks of things screwing up, and I'm behind schedule on my project.  If I can find time and think of a character I'd like to do then great I'll have a go.  It'll be fun seeing the other entries.

Someone needs to draw Mai [King Of Fighters] as an old woman. IT NEEDS TO HAPPEN!

I'm not going to be able to participate since I am still learning and busy with my first little piece of pixel art.  However it will be great if someone choose Goro from Mortal Kombat.  I'd love to see that.

Gee, a Blanka entry would be outstandingly funny 8D

But he's not my favourite. Maybe Jin Saotome or Terry Bogard.

SuperSmashBrothers lends so many options...
I'm definitely going with Chun Li though.
Great idea, something simple enough that most everyone should have the time to enter.
