This is my third style attempt at spriting the Thing and I think I finally have something close to what Capcom would do in their fighting games. The Thing's rocks are not supposed to be so symmetrical but I had to make the rock design in a way where he'd look the same if he were facing right or left. It's what real game artists have to do with 2-D games so that's what I try to do as well. He's intentionally smaller than the Capcom Hulk sprites because the Thing isn't supposed to be as tall as that Hulk. I'll probably make a few more poses of him in this style.
