Earlier this week I went to visit the Harry Potter studio tour and it inspired me to make a Harry Potter themed emote. It also nicely ties in to the current theme of the EMTC of 'magic' though I can't submit it as an entry as I'm a judge this month.
I picked the final battle scene from the 8th film and it took me about 3-5 hours to pixel the scene and add the characters. I've then spent a day trying to create some sort of animation, but the results haven't matched the quality of the background pixelling so for now it'll remain static.
Okay, so I was thinking about making something and this idea came to my mind.
•The blue and purple emotes are just sitting together •The orange one is just probably doing the same, just alone •Another blue emote is sleeping. (Why does he sleep in woods anyways? ) •And the green tard is running from cyan emote (probably because he did something to him).
Time: 3 Hours
This is probably one of the best of my pixel works But I still don't like the background
To get some inspiration I randomly Googled for different tree designs and came across one I liked at the top of a small hill. Using the scene as a reference I built up the background then found positions where the emotes would work. I quite like the end result as it allows each viewer to create their own story to go with the scene.
For the majority of the piece I was on join.me so thank you to all that came to watch and keep my company.
I decided that, for Gabby's birthday, I should get all the emotes together to say a big hooray for her ageing, to show that, even though she's left the emote community and dA, the emotes still love her very much!
However, emotes being emotes they didn't actually do what I told them to. I said 'Three, two, one, CHEESE!', and they all simultaneously pulled stupid faces at the camera, then scampered off after I'd taken the picture, meaning this was the only shot I had.
I don't even know how Bookworm, Sammy and a freaking Pikachu got in there either!
After much editing, hence the delay, I managed to get the picture to a suitable standard, because, I hate to say it, but some of the emotes were 'mooning' the camera. Naughty little things. I had to photoshop other emote's faces onto their arse cheeks, explaining why some faces look similar.
Anyway, happy birthdayfor two days agoGabby! We all miss you very much!
When I first saw the EMTC, I had a desire to compete in it. Now I've finally learned how to make emotes, I'm able to enter!!
This month's theme is 'Magic', so I decided to put a spin on the whole 'Witch's curse' thing. I mean, what if it wasn't on purpose? What if it was just an unfortunate accident?
Here we see a witch and a prince messing around with spells, then a spark (that you can hopefully spot) falls on the prince, transforming him into a frog. The witch, quite horrified, then alerts us that she needs a princess to break the curse!
My original version of this was really bad, and I hated it, but I love this version and I'm really proud of it. I don't care where I'm placed in the EMTC, I'm just filled with happiness to have actually made this!

The discovery of an emote-filled bookcase led Bookworm to find a rather curious book detailing some clever little spells. She whipped out her (plastic) cauldron and started brewing. Kitt, meanwhile, took a nap, which was disturbed by some odd noises on the other side of those books...
