Syn's Dithering TutorialWhat is dithering?Syn's Dithering Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Dithering is a pixel art process used to blend blocks of colour together or help apply a texture to a pixelled surface. Within emoticons it is most commonly used when making pixelled backgrounds, however it can be used in a number of other areas, e.g. massive emote bases, pixel objects etc. In this tutorial, we will focus on how 2 colours can be blended with dithering.
To break dithering down into simple terms, it is achieved by simply taking the colours from the two blocks of colour and placing individual pixels of each on the opposite side. This creates a region where the two colours merge together to create a more blended colour transition instead of a clear line between the two.
Dithering can seem like a complex process, but it's really not. Once you get the basic idea and technique, it's just all about practice and over time you'll learn how to apply it to a number of different situations. There are many dithering styles which can be

I am Dr. Smart the brilliant scientist of the emote community. This is the first of 20 emoticon related news articles I hope to post in the next year between today (my 20th birthday) and February 10, 2013.

ResoucesDue to their small size it is common for emotes to be included in art pieces such as pixel scenes and stamps. These deviations can require other pixel related resources that are relevant to the emote community but not directly emote related.

PE: Smoooth Animation Tutorial: JumpingSmoooth Animation Tutorial: JumpingPE: Smoooth Animation Tutorial: Jumping2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today we will learn how to make smoooth animation! In this tutorial we will cover a basic movement, but sometimes difficult to look natural, jumping.
I am using a pixel black ball as the subject, but really, you can apply this tutorial to anything you want to jump! Like animals and humans (of coarse they would bend their legs instead of squish.;D)! If your animation starts to "trail", or you simply don't know how to animate, you can check out some other tutorials I have made that are linked at the bottom.
Let us begin!
Lets start with the subject. I am using a 13x13 pixel black ball, but you can use anything, even if it isn't pixeled.
Now for the squish! This is the set move to gather energy for the jump. You wouldn't jump straight legged, would you? For my ball, I made it shorter, and expanded it out some on both ends. If your subj
Emoti-Art Feature #1 What is Emoticon Art?Emoti-Art Feature #12 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What is Emoticon Art? As founder of Emoti-Art, that's a question I get asked a lot. What criteria is used that sets one piece apart from another?
First, it should be noted that I am of the belief that all emoticons are art. I feel a level of skill is needed to make them, and even a simple static emote is creative. Sure, it may not be high-art, such as a child's sketch is not a Mona Lisa. But there is still effort behind it and that's important. For more thoughts on this issue from the emoticon community, check out this article.
When we use the term "Emoticon Art," it's a classification, much like Chat-Friendly. Traditionally, Emoticon Art pieces are larger and more detailed. Because of their size and theme, they are often not useful for chats or comments. They are pieces that are simply lovely to sit and look at
Challenge: Journal Skin January (Sign Up)Journal Skin JanuaryChallenge: Journal Skin January (Sign Up)2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Journal Skin January is a challenge brought to you by bradleysays which involves the creation of journal skins.
The idea is to create a journal skin or gallery skin for every week in January. You will be given a generous amount of prompts to work with - these will include both words and deviations.
This means that participants are required to submit four skins in the month of January to successfully complete this challenge.
What prompted this challenge? Probably the lack of activity seen in the journal and gallery skinning community lately. It is a sad fact that most of 2013 was quiet compared to previous years. I want to start 2014 off with a bang.
December 9th: Prompts released. Participants will be able to start making their journal skins from this moment.
January 1st - 7th: Participants release their first journal skin.
January 8th - 14th: Participants release their se

So I heard you like emotes? - Vol 126 - relaunchedSeries re-launchSo I heard you like emotes? - Vol 126 - relaunched3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
After quite a gap I've decided to try re-launching my long running emote news article series. I've had a couple of people mention how much they enjoyed it and now I've got a bit of extra time I feel I can give it another go. It's coming back in near the same format and with a slight change to the name 'So I heard you like emotes??' instead of the old 'So i herd u liek emotes??' as I wanted to drop the chatspeak element. I hope to post it every 1-2 weeks depending on how busy the community is at the time - So if you want more frequent articles keep posting more art .
If you enjoy the series please do let me know, and if you have any suggestions or news you'd like advertised give me a note

All I Want For ChristmasGot this from :iconclub-kids:, so kiddies, here's how this works.... Pick ten of your own characters and make a journal about them asking Santa Claus for something!All I Want For Christmas2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, the first ten people who comment "Ho Ho Ho and a bottle of Nog" on this journal will get one of their characters featured here, and I will say what I like about them.
But his means that if you comment, you must do the same, with me in the first slot. The idea is not to get a free feature, it's to spread art around.
If you don't have a drawing of a character, I will take one of your works that I like. If you don't have an OC at all, I will still take one of your works here. But you still have to do this if you comment.
Hope you enjoy! Now on with the show!
Well, Santa, my hope for Christmas is for my beautiful, blue wild cat, Furball, to have the perfect home with a loving family, he deserves it. Preferably one without a ditzy red head who crushes his spine. Also for my

On the Subject of BasesFellow People of Deviantart,On the Subject of Bases3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I am here today to talk to you about Bases and Dolling.
I am not asking you to do it, or even to like it, but just to put out a standpoint that is sorely missing from this ongoing row over what a Base really is.
You may think a base is a large traced piece from anime with no skill and that the people who draw on top of them are lazy artists who just don't want to learn how to draw. Some bases are traced, but not every base.
Dolling is a hobby, something that is done for fun, and not every doller out there wants to be able to draw like a whiz kid. A lot of people hold down jobs, or full time education and just want a little fun. And so they are able to use a base that they like and draw some clothes and hair onto it, often very skillfully.
