ok those are the tiles of the sprite.
in some games your able to fully see the sprites such as CVAOS and CVHOD but in others it'll be nearly imposible to fully see them.
to help align them simply use the + and - keys on the keyboard to try to make it look more "normal".
for Soma's sprites from Aria of sorrow you must first scroll down untill you find them.
soon you will find something the resembles soma exept it'll be all screwy.
then simply do wut i said above and you should have a full picture of him
