Oh noes, I have dared to revamp the world's most popular emoticon. However, I wouldn't be doing it if I didn't think it was any good.

The clean, simplistic style of this expression is admittedly inspired a little by `brokenboulevard, who has always been a pioneer of expression. :)

A subtle blink animation on a ten-second delay gives it a tiny flavour, without making this classic icon too distracting.

All input is very welcome.



This submission is for the Emoticon Legend Revamp Project at *EmoticonHQ. See more.

Endearing buddy :laughing:
It seems like your revamps looks more sincere.

Ah, I like this one better than the one in current use! :D Nice work!
The shading, along with the expression looks overall better, and the blink is a nice touch, as well.
Rock on! :santa::horns:

Yes, I understand what you mean, but a full smile (raised on both sides) looks way too cheesy. :lol: This is more of a casual smile, and I think it does fairly well in expressing the same thing.

I meant to mean that I love this new version, because it's not a : ), and in a whole new league altogether. I like it. :)

very nice, smooth and simple :)
looks more amused (almost typed abused, there) than happy, though.

I like it better than :), but I can't really describe why. I mean, it's more... happy like. :hmm:

Good job though!

I guess it must be because it's simpler, and therefore the happiness is perceived faster. :hmm: :giggle:

Thanks. :)

It's tricky to know which theme to continue with, as I'm not getting many comments. I guess people are just getting fed up with all the revamps everybody's making. :lol:
