Introduction In this tutorial, I will explain you how to use a couple techniques I used to improve Planet Centauri's sprites before implementing them into the game (or before animating them). Some of the rules shown here are very easy to use, and/or are purely methodical; so even if you aren't very skilled, follow those simple guidelines to make your sprites cleaner.
