These aren't all of the mugs present in FE games, but it's most of them and they are more than enough as far as splicing goes. (I may add missing ones eventually)
FE3 Book 1 and 2
FE4 Both Generations
FE8 Prototypes Seeing as how these are prototype portraits they may not be the best for referencing. (Though, as far as I can see they aren't that bad).

Posting your images
If you want to get advice on your sprites, it would be a good idea to post them on this forum. You could just attach your files to the post, but it would be tedious for viewers to look at your sprites, so they probably won't even bother. This is why we use image uploading sites. When you upload an image to an image uploading site it will give you a link to your image. You can then put this link in between IMG tags so that your image will be viewable within your post.
List of Image Uploading sites (They are all free unless otherwise stated).
Photobucket: You will need to make an account for this one. Make sure to save your finished sprites as PNGs before uploading them to photobucket. Otherwise they will be JPEG'd.
Imageshack: As far as I know you don't need to make an account for this site, but I think your images will be removed after some time. *This needs to be confirmed*
Dropbox: This one is probably the easiest to use. You will need to make an account for this one. I don't use it for uploading sprites as last time I tried it JPEG'd my sprites even though they were PNGs. I didn't look into it much though so its possible I did something wrong. Nevertheless, I recommend this site anyways because its convient for quickly backing up files.
Gyazo: Real simple. You just start up the program, click and drag your mouse over your sprite and it will give you a link to use. No account needed.
Min.us: An account is optional for this site. It's seems pretty easy to use. You just have to drag and drop the file you want uploaded onto your browser.
Imgur: Another optional account site. Simple easy to use. More or less works the same as Min.us.
*Feel free to suggest anything that is not there. Just post the name of the site and a short description.*
