What Emoticons Are Made Of by =DEVlANT brilliantly demonstrates the depth an emoticonist can create when he or she properly explores three-dimensional perspective. It also goes to show that emoticons are apparently made of the Lithium-6 isotope, and even subatomic particles have feelings too!

To start with, This is such an awesome and creative idea! I love how fluid the animation is, not to mention how adorable some of those little guys are! It's an adorable twist on an atom. I wish I was made up of these cute guys to say the least!

On the vision. I'm glad you focused on lighting more than shading! It's really important when it comes to emojiis, because minimal shading allows the expression to be seen. I've seen some cases where an emojii looks like a faceless ball due to overshading. So kudos on that! The only thing I think you could improve on is deciding where the light is coming from but I'll get to that in technique!

On the originality. I think this is one of the most original emojiis I've ever seen on the internet, and that's saying a LOT! Everything about this is unique, I honestly don't have any idea what else to say about that topic! xD

On the technique. Like I said before, the way you focused on lighting was a very smart decision. It helps us focus on the expressions and what is happening! But I think you need to decide where the light is coming from a little better. I just noticed some emojii had lighting a little off and don't blame you, because shading can be hard, especially cell shading! O_O Boy. Another thing, it's kind of hard to see some of the tinier emojiis faces, due to the fact they are going so fast! Maybe slow them down in future works and let us admire their cute little round faces! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/l/l…" width="19" height="19" alt=":la:" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="577" title="La la la la"/>

Overall I'm in love with this piece and think it would leave a smile on anybody who happens to see them, I mean look at those cuties! 'v'

Here we go, amazing critique time!
Vision: The title says it all. You took emoticons to another level by making them into something more. You created the subatomic world of Atomicons! 5/5 stars.
Originality: I've never seen anything like it, and it is an amazingly creative icon. I swore to myself that I could never give an Emote five stars for creativity, but this is an exception to that rule. 5/5 stars.
Technique: While there were very minor spots where the Atomicons felt out of place, this emote was very well designed. I personally enjoy how fast it is, as it adds to the humor of the Emote. 4.5/5 stars.
Impact: I couldn't stop laughing, so in my opinion, this is hilarious. Thus, I consider that quite an impact, towards Comedy rather than Tragedy. 5/5 stars.

I honestly love this, it is very original and interesting it looks kind of sciency while being interesting and humorous as well.

I really like how they show emotion as well and it is definitely a different view of the regular emoticons we all know and love this is amazing overall, I believe this is what an emoticon would look like under a microscope you should do an "anatomy of an emoticon" chart XD.

The only thing i want to say is that i wish the blues were spinning a little bit slower so you can fully take in their emotions <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

other than that absolutely incredible <img class="avatar" src="a.deviantart.net/avatars/c/l/c…" alt=":iconclappingplz:" title="clappingplz" />

I like the way the blue is bouncing off the Red and White
I will give you five stars for everything, making a perfect score.
You really did well on the originality, I have never in my life ever seen anything as original as this. I like the blues suprised/scared face as it is bouncing off of.

You probablly took very good time on this peice of emotion. I bet you it is what Emotions are made of. (I like the title too <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/h/h…" width="17" height="23" alt=":happybounce:" title=":happybounce:"/> )

Overall this is a very good emotion and took alot of time, better than some of the other emotions and I have seen ALOT.

Good day and good work!

For this deviation, I'll give you a perfect score for that ^^
The combination of all the emoticons are so cool. There are some happy, some sad, some angry, all the things that an emoticon has ^^
The animation is so nice that I can't stop looking at it ^^
This is the best emoticon ever ^^
This deviation says that the emoticons are made up of different emotions of the people. Great work.
Like it, love it all of it ^^
So great, well created.
Keep up the good work and I wish you could do more emoticons ^^
I love you
God bless you

First of all, I like how smoothly this deviation moves. There isn't a glitch in the animation and all of the emoticons have been given their own special detail. I know some who would just detail the ones in the front; a lot of realism (as strange as it may seem) has been added by making everything well balanced.

I also enjoy the title and how it fits perfectly with this. I understand your concept, in the fact that this resembles a molecule, what with the protons (happy) and electrons(sad/depressed).

Thid was very well thought out and deserves much applause.

Well, when I first saw this I thought 'Lol'. Because this does have humor in it, especially the googly-eyed emotion flying across the front! I thought this was a very cool design and idea for a deviation and it was very original and unique, I really like it! The animation is also smooth and easy to too, and its good quality as well! I've tried to make animation, but its not nearly this good, nor is it good at all! LOL! Well; I think you did a great job and keep of the amazing work!!!
Cheers to you and everyone!

Okay, when I first saw this I immediately thought, "Wow, it seems like emotes are really made of these!" This is quite unique and I like it!

I love the way that the red and white are stuck together; red sad and white happy, and the blues are just bouncing around! This makes it seem even more like a real atom! Who would have thought that emotes had cells? <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/e/e…" width="15" height="15" alt=":O" title=":O (Eek)"/>

Another thing I liked was the animation! I never would have thought that anything could be animated so nicely! The emotes blend nicely together and I actually just noticed that the red one on the bottom looks hopelessly confused!

Overall, this is a unique and phenomenally animated emoticon of pure awesomeness! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)"/>

Well...first off LOL!

The individual expressions are just pure win. I can just imagine something like <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)" /> for example being made up of stuff like this. This is such a stroke of genius dude (i wish i had the time or tools to make stuff like this). You say 3 hours to make this eh? For 3 hours worth of work I'd say it paid off seeing as how it made DD and all that fun stuff. Absolutely amazing little animation man, people like you inspire me to go out and experiment with my own art to try and better myself.

A+++ job.
