Still weird not using GIMP again, but I'm currently sitting in the living room on my laptop. Desktop is alllllll the way in my room and...mehhh.

I'm 19 and I still own and play with a slinky. I can still be a cool kid, right?

DONE! Finally!

I have been toying with the idea of entering the NaNoEmo this year, but I know me. If I am expected to come up with a new idea every day, I might make it four days....if I am lucky. So I pondered on and off about what I could do for the month, something that would provide me with some inspiration without tons of commitment from me....and then it hit me! I will do OCs, or ECs if you will, in my style! I love to see my OCs done by other people, and have always wanted to have a reason to do others (anyone remember the support badges? :eyes:) so this seemed like the perfect opportunity for it! So, every day I will *try* to add a new OC to my grid. And, as a call to arms, I would LOVE if you guys could suggest me some OCs of active emoticonists. I watch hundreds of them, but a lot of them are no longer around and I would really like to do some of the newer ECs as well...only I may not know you or you EC yet. So, if you would like to be included in my month long endeavor, just leave a comment and let me know. I have a handful I know I will be doing, I just need to be sure I have 30. :giggle:

The basic grid, in case anyone else wants to try something similar, can be found here: [link]

EDIT You will notice a huge edit here....leaving for the next couple of days to spend the holidays with my family down south. I didn't want to fall behind so I have updated to Saturday. Happy Weekend, gais, and Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it! :heart:

1. *marcphx Love this guy!

2. `stuck-in-suburbia This gal rocks...and it's her birfday today! :heart:

3. `Synfull I have known this lady for such a long time. I decided to attempt a mischievous look with my big eyes....Syn certainly looks devious. :evillaugh:

4. `Krissi001 I am such a fan of her work. Her animation and pixeling blow me away! I added a penguin here as I am pretty sure she loved them once. :giggle: Don't mind the fail penguin, I have never been great at emoting animals. :shifty:

5. `Mirz123 This fine woman is my twin in just about every way! She's my sister from another mister, basically. :giggle: And this is how I picture Minnie as a vampire. So adorable and just begging for a hug, you wouldn't see the fangs...until it was too late! :furious:

6. =I-is-smart Another emote appreciator, this dude has started up his own contest with fun letters (ECC) and needs more support for his EC theme challenges. :eyes:

7. `Quolia This chick does some awesome things with pixels...and she is just all around kind of amazing. :nod:

8. =Cmotes I love how this girl GUY shades his work....and his animations are always sooooo smooooooth! :faint:

11. =Eitvys200 This fella is new to the scene, but his little EC is cute and his pixels show potential. :meow:

13. =Kath602 I love this girl's static pieces. :nod:

14. =SnowSniffer While this guy is still relatively new to me, his emotes are not the work of a newbie. His shading style is so shiny! :iconlovelyemoteplz:

This is a revamp of :disbelief: by `cynic.

So, I got into a discussion about revamping emotes with someone today, and it made me realize that I don't know how many new emoticonists know what a proper revamp is. I'm not pointing fingers or anything, but I'm honestly curious because I might make a tutorial about revamping other emotes, how to credit the original, et cetera. Would anyone be interested in that/does anyone need help with that sort of thing?

I spent some 4 hours or so sleeping, just woke up again about 20-30 minutes ago. :slow: I'm getting sick again guys! =P

Was going to try to make a :tummyache: emote, but couldn't get the hands to look right because it looked like he was going to pass gas. :noes: This came out of it, though, which reminded me of a ">u<" face, which will work for now because I might go lay back down again soon.

I feel like this currently because road trip, road trip, road trip. :eager:

Animation came out a bit choppy, but I'm used to animating in Fireworks now, where I can actually preview the animation as I go. I only have GIMP on this computer, so I can only check the animation after I put everything in. :noes:

This was the one of back up pieces I did for the 2012 Emoticonist Advent Calendar
The day has passed and I decided that I can submit it now. :giggle:
It was the 8th piece I created :>

I am proud of this piece, even though I used a reference.
This piece has 50 colours, it would have been 28 without the Emotes (including the torch [they already have 23 colours <_< ]) and the stars.
I am proud of the reflection of the torch-light since I used solid colours and no transparency. :happybounce:

Been chipping away at this for about a week or so. First thing I thought of for the #TheEMTC May Contest themed Stamps! Being an animation I wasn't sure if I'd have time to finish it, but got a few hours today to do just that. =) I have a few other ideas for "Top Uses for a Tard" so you may see more.

Edit: Fixed a minor glitch caused by the transparency.

=EternalxRequiem passively inspired me to revamp one of my old emotes. :lol:


It was made on February 8, 2009 and was the first emote I was ever fully proud of and happy with.
I can't say I'm overly keen on the animation for this, but I was constantly trashing and redoing the animation over, so this is what I'm sticking with. It's weird to see how much I've changed over a couple years. :slow:
