Planning to make a new norn breed!

So I'm planning to make my first breed since I'll be getting a lot of free time pretty soon. The concept of these norns is kind of like the Deep Norns, except more of a freshwater fish, and like the Deep Norns will have an agent to come with. I'll post a concept soon. It would look kind of like a trout, but still look cute. Do you see where I'm getting at?
Either way, does anyone have little tips to help me start? I've never done this before, and I understand it will take time. Maybe some tips for spriting and the code? All help is appreciated! [ngrin]

I never attempted to actually create a breed by myself, but I think out of reading lots of forum entries I remember that the sprite builder is really necessary as a tool and makes stuff easier.
Furthermore you can't use completely black colors as they will be counted as background by the game.
There are some errors when using 3D spirtes ( I think ghosthande hat some errors with it where it showed in green).
Also there is a size limit to the sprites. I think Izumisabi or Norngirl created a tool to increase the data size.

I hope some of my advice will help ^^

Thanks! I already have spritebuilder, and making the ATTs is what I dread the most.

Actually, scratch the concept. There are already deep norns. I think I will wait to hear what people think, or I'll do my pet bunny, Pillow.
