Images- & Sprites-pages

Okay, I know the wiki is still in its infancy and needs content more than anything right now, but I've quickly hacked together a template (see it in action) to link to yet-nonexistent image- and sprite pages à la Ace Attorney Wiki. (go have a quick look at that, the links and the pages they link to I'm both talking about should be below the header but above the page's content)

The concept can easily be carried over to this wiki. Though, the potential main problem is that we might not have enough official/concept/promotional art to justify an extra entire separate page for every character. Plus, most promotional images feature multiple characters and since you have to pay for it you probably can't just copypaste most of the Sights of Neo-SF artbook into the Concept Art section for that character.

A Sprites page for every character that has a close-up face in-game should be reasonable and doable though. Worst-case scenario is that we have to build the animations ourselves from spritesheets, which though it's a bunch of work shouldn't be too extremely hard to do.

On the Images page: Unlike Ace Attorney, whose wiki this concept was borrowed from, all images in ROM are sprites/pixel art. The AA Wiki also has promotional and concept art on its Images pages and while this wiki could also host a gallery of all of MidBoss' ROM art, but it may be wise to wait and see if they provide one themselves.

On the Sprites page: Instead of a separate page per character for their sprites, we could put them in tabs in Template:Infobox npc. A quick demo of that is in place on Turing's page. Currently the alignments, margins and paddings are a bit off and the downscaled images are blurry, but I've already got (most of) the CSS I need to fix that - I just need to apply it.
