Vintage. Of old, recognized, and enduring interest, importance, or quality....Classic. This world has many meanings, applying to wine or old skool geekery, like record players and VHS. Since "old" seems to be a word associated with it, it seemed a fitting theme for the recent bout of seniority. I want to see your take on this, whether it is an emote using a rotary phone (google it, they were awesome to use), jamming with a boombox, enjoying a fine wine, or just chilling with some old folks (they are vintage too ), I want tons of goodies from yesteryear. Heck, some discotheque emotes could be cool. You explain it's vintage origins, I will take it. Help this old lady remember the past.

help corner: EmoticonsWelcome to the help corner:Emoticons. If you have any questions about anything Emoticon related go ahead and send me a note. Not all questions have to be serious, I am looking forward to all kind of questions ;D The questions will be answered in the next edition of the help corner.help corner: Emoticons2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I had the idea for this News article when I recently went through the Tutorial list of Emotication. I normally send deviants to Emotication when they need help to create Emoticons. Now that I went through the list I noticed that many tutorials aren't helpful at all. It is "just" a list with very good but also very bad tutorials.
In the first edition of the help corner I want to share tutorials with you that I find helpful. These don't necessarily reflect my preferences in the emoticon creation process
Let me first tell you something about different shadings. Every Emoticonist has different preferenc
Random Emote Awesomeness - Volume 12Volume 12 in the series that showcases a random variety of emoticons: some old, some new, some by seasoned emoticonists, some by new artists. There's no real rhyme or reason as to which pieces are featured. Sometimes I pick a theme such as animals, other times it's just whatever strikes my fancy. Below are the current group of awesome emotes hand-picked by me (and sometimes a guest). Much like the title, this News feature will publish a bit randomly. Maybe weekly, maybe every third Thursday, maybe three days in a row--but hopefully at least once a month.Random Emote Awesomeness - Volume 123 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Magic. I wish I had magic. It makes sparkles sometimes, this magic. Wouldn't you like to make something magical with emotes? Now's your chance! Be it pulling something out of a hat, using a magic wand, or perhaps fan art of a certain wizarding world. The sky is the limit! And if you add sparkles, I will dance for you!

Make an emote that is not a little ball of animated pixels. Make an emote out of clay, paint one on canvas, make a chalk drawing, whatever. Bonus points if you can animate it.

Master of Elements by KinnisonArc is a really impressive emote scene. Each of the elements gives an intense sense of power and the image in the middle just helps the elements flow together. The emotes in each corner fit really well and the expressions help give a sense of individuality to each Master.
The bright colours of the lava in Hanging on for Dear Life by PokeartKid really grabbed my attention. The details included in the whole background really help bring the scene to life and give a realistic feel to the situation.

This is the official journal for the Emoticonists Support Stamp Project - which aims to update mintyy's old stamp!
Go and fave the news article here: http://news.deviantart.com/article/154130/
This will be updated on every new stamp and every new update.
Due to an unplanned hiatus, this project hasn't been updated for a bit. I'll get on it as soon as possible.
This project won an award! You probably noticed that big gold thing up there! Probably an incentive to update it
There are still a number of stamps that have been permission'd but have not been made. If you can, please finish your stamp ASAP as they have been there a while.

Emoticonists Support Stamp ProjectA NEW PROJECT APPEARED!Emoticonists Support Stamp Project3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Way back in 2009, mintyy created a stamp, supporting all emoticonists. Unfortunately, it has since become sorely out of date, featuring many emoticonists who have since left us. Phlum and myself devised a plan to create a new support stamp for the current generation of emoticonists. And, out of that brainstorming session, came a plan: a project.
Individuals making an entry must use this template.
Individuals can make up to two (2) entries.
Individuals cannot make entries supporting themselves.
Individuals can only make entries for emoticonists who they have gotten permission from to do so.
Individuals can only make entries for emoticonists who have made at least nine (9) original (none derivative, revamps are acceptable. As for clarification if you are unsure) emotes i

And I thank WendyW for the tag. LOL!Memes and Stuff3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's the old, "answer these 10 questions" meme! Okay, here goes...
1. If you had to pick three words to sum up your day (which you do) what would they be?
I assume this means any day in general, so: Typing, fretting, art.
2. What's your favourite album?
OMG, I don't know, honestly. One of the Phil Collins ones. Maybe "No Jacket Required"?
3. Frantobelgrot isn't a real word, but if it was what would it mean?
It is a strange stew which you make to get rid of all of that mystery meat in your freezer.
4. What time is it and how long have you been awake?
7:30 am and I've been up for 4 hours.
5. Other than my comic what should I draw next?

The Sorcerer's Apprentice by stuck-in-suburbia is an adorable emote with easily recognisable characters. The animation is simple but effective and really brings the emote to life and the small details really enhance it as a whole.
I always love emotes containing special effects so eat THIS! by CCpotteranimator really caught my attention. The animation is fluent throughout with great detail and awesome expressions.

PE - Welcome to Digital Dolls!Hey everyone! Welcome to Dolling week of Project Educate! I suppose I'll start it out with what the heck I'm even talking about.PE - Welcome to Digital Dolls!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Digital dolls! A term coined by DeviantArt, but a very fitting term indeed! Dolls are basically small pixel-art (usually of people) typically created from a base-body (a naked, bald pixel-person) that another doller has made.
That was a mouth-full, huh? Just think of them as digital paper-dolls.
So what's this about a base-body? Bases are actually a huge part of the dolling experience. If you notice, in the three example dolls up there, the artist credits another artist for the 'base'. Almost every doll is like a collaboration between two artists, making dolling that much more fun! Some people choose to edit the base they use til it's barely recognizable, and some people prefer to leave them as they were!
So where can

It's that time of year again...the time when school starts. For most of you, it is a slightly depressing time as it means homework, studying, tests/exams, etc. Of course, it also means getting to hang out with your friends again and having something to fill your time. For a select few of us...it means quiet

Positive Commenter's Day!Positive Commenter's Day!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Please / this and spread the love!
Earlier today, I posted a journal. It contained not the most thought-out of ideas, but still an idea.
What if we, as the deviantART community, set aside an amount of time to comment on every piece of artwork to enter our inbox? It might be a little time consuming, but think about it! If at least even 50 people commented on the new art pieces of everyone they watched, that would make the artists feel more appreciated and inspired to create more! Not only that, it could make the community in general shine even more positively.
I know, it would be almost impossible to comment on ALL of the stuff in your inbox, especially if you get 500+ deviations a day. So, at LEAST try to comment on all the artworks from individual artists only (NOT group submissions). I'm sure a ton of you guys out there wat

TOPLESS CHARACTER COLLABTOPLESS CHARACTER COLLAB2 years ago in Personal More Like This
IMPORTANT: I am only going to accept one character from each person, because of the sheer volume of participants. If you've already made two, let me know which you would prefer in the final collab.
Alright guys, this Collab is now set in motion.
Your mission is to doll one of your OC's without a shirt on. Nudity is totally permitted and encouraged, but if you'd rather have something covering the boobies to make it more demure, feel free. Male and female characters are both allowed, and if you'd like help converting the base male just ask for help. I'd be happy to help.
This is the base, by zapatones
I'm making a list of those who want to participate in this journal just so I can keep track. I don't want this collab to drag on forever and never end. You can post here to sign up, get me in dollchat (http://chat.deviantart.com/chat/digitaldolls), or over msn.
