This year, I volunteered to take over the project because Krissi001 discovered she was unable to due to time constraints. Bear with me, as it's my first time organizing such a project.
What is an Advent Calendar? An advent calendar depicts the 24 days in December ending on Christmas Day.
Okay, so what's special about an Emoticonist Advent Calendar? It's special because the calendar's days are filled with things made by anyone who makes emotes, or emoticons!
Who can sign up for this awesome project? Anyone who can create an emote! Skill doesn't matter, but you must be willing to commit to the day you choose.
Will we be able to do animated entries? As it's my first year and I'm quite unfamiliar with flash, thi

just because frisk is most likely nonbinary doesn't mean that other people can't see them as male , female , genderfluid - hell , even transgender .
their gender is up to the player to decide .
not everyone has to see them as their canon gender .
it's not like toby is going to come up to you and be like "nnO YOU CAN'T SEE FRISK AS ____ BC THEY'RE NONBINARY AND CAN ONLY BE NONBINARY YOU DUMBFUCK" lmao .
this shouldn't even be a thing to fight over .
it's just a pixelated character - why does it even matter ??? just because someone sees frisk as a different gender than what you see them as doesn't mean you have to have a shit fit jesus christ lmao ,,,
personally , i see frisk as a demigirl .
other people may not agree with me , but that's okay .
i don't mind if people don't see frisk as a demigirl .
it's called accepting others' opinions and actually being open-minded .

RANTING ABOUT FANDOMS YAYI'm so sick of the mediaRANTING ABOUT FANDOMS YAY4 months ago in Personal More Like This
this is seriously the last god damn straw
I can't take gaming anymore if this keeps happening
I HATE it when someone makes a video that compares two characters
because you know what comes next?
THE HATE STARTS GUSHING IN THE COMMENTS SECTION YYYUP
Why does the media always ruin my favourite characters for me?
why? It's stupid
It always ends in something like "Mario's fat and stupid" or "I can't believe people play that game" or "get lost fanboys"
I've never seen any two fanbases get along, they're always fighting about which character's better
It actually hurts me physically and mentally
I'm not gonna lie, it makes me sad and angry to watch my favourite characters get insulted by other fandoms like that
and yet I've never posted a single hate comment
People should start to control themselves, think before they type
But no, no one listens to those people that actually try to be positive
And everyday there's less and less of those people because the god damn medi
A Guide to Effective TaggingA new method to promote and discover art has been released to the community in the form of Tags! When submitting art, adding relevant tags to your deviations will help viewers discover art of interest to them and give your work more exposure.A Guide to Effective Tagging1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
You can add tags based on a variety of things, be it subject matter, themes, medium used, fandom, or anything else you feel is important.
Use these tips to make the most of tags and help your art to find its audience:
Keep it simple. The less complicated the tag, the easier your art is to discover.
Be specific. If you take a picture of a rose, tagging it as #flower, while correct, won’t get your art as much attention as tagging it #rose will. You can, of course, tag both.
Tag efficiently. If your art is based on Lord of the Rings, tag it #LordOfTheRings and/or #lotr. You don’t need to tag every combination — t

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: How to Make a Large EmoticonHow to Make a Large EmoticonPE: How to Make a Large Emoticon3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have been asked many times how I make my big emoticons. How I shade it, dither it, etc, so I am going to make a step by step tutorial on how I make large emoticons. Even if you already know how to, you might find something useful in this. Be aware that I am using photoshop elements 3.0, so this technique can be preformed in almost any program that has layers and custom pencil brush sizes and or a hollow and filled circle tool. If your program doesn't have layers or adjustable circles of any kind (whether it be the pencil tool or the circle tool), you should be able to get around it somehow, but if you can't figure it out, I would recommend gimp. It works on Macs, Windows, or Linux computers. You can get a free download at gimp.org.
Start by making a hollow circle. The color of it should be a really dark shade of the color you want the emote to be. I'm making a blue emote, so

PE: Tolerance Towards Daily DeviationsIf you're like me, one of the first things you do every morning is turn on the computer to check the DDs for the day, if you make this a habit sooner or later you'll see something featured that you won't like at all, making you spill your morning coffee all over the screen.PE: Tolerance Towards Daily Deviations3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Oh the crime! That poor coffee going to waste.
Before you hit the Caps Lock button and begin an essay about the drop of quality of DDs, stop. Take a deep breath, maybe walk around for a bit to cool down, and think about what you're going to do. To begin with, complaining about the DD leaving a comment is extremely disrespectful for the artist because most of the time, they didn't even ask to be featured. Instead, take a moment to consider why was it picked, DDs are chosen for far more than just being visually attractive, as the article Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend explained; we often look f

I'm honestly so sick of Scar's bullshit so ,,, here i go--
Just because you don't agree with someone's gender identity doesn't mean that you PURPOSELY refer to someone by the incorrect gender and pronouns .
You don't just go out and talk about people behind their back , saying shit like Scar did - "Emilly is a girl" - when you KNOW that they don't like being referred to as that specific gender and set of pronouns .
It's just plain cruel and disrespectful to do such a thing - honestly Scar , haven't you heard of something called the "Golden Rule" ??
It means -
TREAT OTHERS HOW YOU WANT TO BE TREATED .
And you seem to want people to respect you and such . .
But look at how YOU'RE treating ShAcKmO .
Do you really think that you'll get respect by purposely misgendering someone AND treating them like complete shit ?
Oh , and to add on top of that all - You HARASSING me , my f
