Sprites (Self-Insertion)

Okay, quick thing. Your sprite must be something creative and has some relativity to the games your hoaxing for. DO NOT have just a plain ol' Tails standing around- recolor him or give him a costume. Notice that my sprite is Knuckles in a spy costume. Sprites are your self-image on the internet. It is best to choose a sprite and stick with it.
Here is an example:

Knave the Beaver

Types of Hoaxes
   Normal hoaxes are when you just use the paint program and mess around.
   Crossover hoaxes are when you take a sprite from another game and stick in a Sonic game like that red guy from MegaMan X and stuck him into the Hidden Palace Zone 1 of Sonic 2 Beta.
   Techinical hoaxes are when you sneakily change something in the game. Such as if you moved a palmtree in Sonic 1 over a few pixels or if you place a character in the wrong level (i.e. Sonic in an area that only Knuckles can get acces to).
   Jokes are, well, just jokes!
