How many colors are allowed?

I was under the impression only 8 separate colors could be used (and half-tone gradients can create the illusion of other colors. Looking around however, I think I have found many designs with far more than 8 colors.

Hi, 8 colors are allowed and only very occasionally do we do more. Artists here are masters of making other colors appear only using a very small number of colors and some halftone skills. Kharmazero has some great examples – Check out this piece using just 4 COLORS! http://www.designbyhumans.com/vote/detail/215379

Absolutely incredible. I really need to better understand the half-tone technique. I will look into it.
