For something to be a sprite, does it have to be used in an animation, or can it just be something small and simple?
 
sprite



A graphic image that can move within a larger graphic. Animation software that supports sprites enables the designer to develop independent animated images that can then be combined in a larger animation. Typically, each sprite has a set of rules that define how it moves and how it behaves if it bumps into another sprite or a static object.


Basically it is the small parts of a whole such as in my icon there is a recolored crono sprite that I then placed in the space-like backround. It is a pic that is then used in other pics but what they really are is what is above this paragraph.
 
you wanna know what a sprite is? It is actually very often missunderstood a sprites are graphics used in any videogame 3D or 2D
e.g.

THESE are sprites and THIS is a sprite

And where did you read this? The second one is a 3-D image, it's was made by a computer artist, it's not even in the game.

what I meant was if it was in the game it would be considerd a sprite. Any iages in games are sprites

that wouldn't be a sprite either way.

No, a sprite (also known as a tile) aren't things that are 3-D, those are polygons, which are pre-programmed or automatically created by the game. Tiles are already in the game.
