:snowing: Just in time for Christmas. :giggle:

Because of the large amount of white, this emoticon looks best on a dark background.

Oh boy... This took a little longer than I was expecting, but still, given that Baseball Bat Ninja, my first emoticon, of similar complexity, took 2 weeks to make, I've sped up a great deal.

Moving on to the technical details of this: the basic animation of the snow fall is 6 frames long, and loops throughout the scene. Because the snowfall needs to be constant, there are many frames to this, and given that animation over transparency doesn't compress well, this emote falls just short of 30KB.

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

:giggle: I recieved the suggestion for this back in may and has to wait 7 months before featuring it :faint:

This is still one of the most impressive emotes i've seen. The amount of detail you managed to pack into this is truely amazing. It may be 2 years old but you really couldn't tell that.

Congrats on the DD :) glad to see this finally get the attention it deserves
