O Ilusionista (The Illusionist) AKA Douglas Baldan, is a Brazilian Mugen stage/character creator & the founder of the Brazil Mugen Team (BMT)
He has been active since December of 1999, making him one of the oldest known creators still active.
He is best known for his Street Fighter Spec Ops Characters & Megaman MVC custom edits, but being one of the longest active remaining known mugen creators, he has a wide plethora of creations under his belt.
O Ilusionista is primarily a coder, although he has done almost everything and anything that can be done in Winmugen & Mugen 1.0 as far as creations. He has made countless stages both low and Hi-res, and has made some incredible fullgames such as Battle Stormer Classics and Megaman Robot Master Mayhem, which he has released several updates for many years since starting the project.
His characters often feature his own personal touch as a result of him having no set standard for his characters - a concept that was very popular during the early days of Mugen when the community were still experimenting with different gameplay standards without the constraint or concept of "styles" like the modern day POTs/KOFM/VS style Tropes that make up a large majority of character creation standards in the wider Mugen community.
He is known for doing unconventional characters and boss characters that have sometimes been considered cheap and often come with a very aggressive A.I.
One little known fact is about O Illusionista is that he actually works proffessionally in graphic & design outside of mugen and his works can be viewed via his online portfolio here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] . For that, we salute him!
