Damn, 2 years since the last one. Anyways, we’ve been through this by now - create as many mugs as possible in the span of a week.At the end of the week all of the submissions will be released as a package free for anyone to use in their projects.
All skill levels welcome! Even if you’ve never made a mug, this is a prime opportunity to get started!
Anything is allowed; Splices, full custom sprites, memes, halfbodies, and all others.
Images should be insertable in GBA or similar format like the halfbody format.
Using TLP minis or not including frames or minis is discourages, but not forbidden.
You are free to use any existing sprites you have made. If they’re edits of a previously submitted sprite, specify it.
Submit by posting in this thread.
Joke or meme mugs are still perfectly okay to submit! In the package, mugs like these (as well as any mugs not in the GBA insertable format, or aren’t properly insertable) will be placed in a separate folder from the regular mugs, just like in Mugging Blitz Round 4.
Halfbodies will also be placed in a different folder.
Edits or revisions of your past submitted mugs in the same thread will be replacing the old version you’ve submitted.
AI generated and AI assisted artwork is permitted. However, you are not allowed to submit them if they are not insertable.
Submitting someone else’s sprite as your own and not crediting them, splicing from a sprite that is not free to edit, or submitting someone else’s sprite that is NOT free to use is art theft and will not be tolerated.
Make sure to name the file by this format before uploading: [Creator] - [MugName].png

For reasons known only to me, I spent some time working on a project where I made splices inspired by each random chapter boss in Absolution by ZessDynamite (linked above). I ended up getting to Chapter 12’s boss before losing interest. A few of them - the ones inspired by the bosses of the Prologue, Chapter 1, and Chapter 5 - are being used in other projects and are not available here.
Section 2: Graveyard of Dead Projects
In the wilderness of FEU, projects rise and fall beyond the imagining of any mortals. For a few such fangames (some mine, some other people’s), I put together portraits for one reason or another, which happened to outlive the hack they were created for. Put these sprites to a better use than their original, dead projects.
Section 3: Miscellany
Not all portraits are created as something as lofty as a “hack” or a “coherent theme” - sometimes you just get a dumb idea and feel compelled to make it a reality.
Section 4: why
"Forward, the Horrible Idea Brigade!”
Was there a nerd dismayed?
Not though the hacker knew
Someone had blundered.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to splice and die.
Into the valley of #spritans
Rode the six hundred.
