Default [PROJECT] 100 Rules Of Spriting ~ BANNERS WANTED!! ~ OPEN

Hello there, and welcome to the 100 Rules Of Spriting!!
Where you make the rules!!

Banners Wanted!!

I've seen many very bad, and many very good sprite shops
in this miniboard over the time I've been on this website.
And now, with the help of the members of pe2k who favor
in the spriting arts, I'm deciding to build up a list of 'spriting
rules', hopefully able to get up to 100 (or even more if
people get interested enough.)
So if you'd care to contribute to the list, feel free to do so,
by stating a rule in a post. ^^ And I will give credit to
whoever contributes a rule, and ends up getting on the list.

Also, people, if you see some newbie that isn't necessarily
the best spriter, and there is a rule that relates to their
problems with spriting, feel free to state a rule, complete
with number, onto their thread!
DISPLAY YOUR SPRITING KNOWLEGDE!!

Now, for Rule #1....
Rule #1 needs to be a very strong rule,
and the most important of all.
If you have any ideas for Rule #1,
state them, and I will post them up for
'Possible #1 Rules'.
Then, people can vote.
Once a Rule gets 7 votes, then it
will officially be Rule #1. ^^

The Laws Of This Thread:
- READ THE RULES LIST BEFORE POSTING A RULE!! ><
- DON'T OVERLOAD ME!! ><
- I decide if a rule stated in this thread
is "worthy" of getting on the list.
- I have authority to boot up, or bump
down a rule any # if I think it varies
in importance.
- I have the authority to rephrase rules
so that they actually sound like rules.
- No stretching the page.
- No whining.
- No flaming this thread.
- No quoting this entire post.

Banners:

#3 Do not make the outlines of your sprites all one color. If you give the outline a nit more of a color palette, it make sthe sprite look a bit nicer.

Eh, Im srry but this aint gonna get into the list....
People resize for pixel-overs, and I didn't always
recolour my fusions. But maybe you could rephrase #7,
and I might put it in ^^
