Question about graphcis limitations

Hello all.

I have seen some very impressive projects out there with awesome graphics in terms of special effects. However, I have noticed that most sprites are pixel art.

My question is whether it's possible to bring in sprites that have smoothed edges (transparency / anti-aliasing) - both character and backgrounds.

I ask because I sprite edit on enlarged images, and them resize for a smoothing effect around the edges of the sprite. If I use a pixel-resize in my software, the sprites look pretty bad.

Thanks for helping a noob out.
