Group Info

This is not your normal emoticon group. This group is dedicated to emoticon art. Basically emotes that are created for viewing as art pieces rather than for chat or forum use. These emoticons are typically distinguished by detailed props and backgrounds, as well as high-level animation. They are oftentimes showcase pieces and display a greater level of pixelling skill.

Many people argue that emoticons are simple and don't qualify as true art. This group is here to prove otherwise!

There were a few journal entries published recently about a new co-founder to the group, as well as announcing a new contest.  These journals WERE NOT authorized by me.  Actually, there was a glitch in the priv system that allowed this person to auto-join.  They proceeded to do all sorts of things in the group without contacting me first.  Of course, this is totally unacceptable behavior.

Needless to say, I was very upset awaking this morning to find these changes and immediately deleted all journals.  This person also has been banned from the group. Please disregard anything that came through in that manner.

Thank you and apologies for any inconvenience.

Submission Guidelines

As this group is just starting out, we don't have a lot of rules. That may or may not change!

:bulletgreen: This group accepts pieces that are considered emoticon art. They are generally larger, more details pieces. Because of their size and theme, they are typically not useful for chats or comments.*

:bulletgreen: Members may submit up to 3 deviations a week. That may not sound like a lot, but this Group is not here to feature your whole gallery but to showcase your truly stand-out pieces.

:bulletgreen: All submissions are subject to approval by our staff. If it is rejected for quality reasons, please honor our decision and do not re-submit. However, if the piece is re-done, you may submit the updated piece for consideration.

:bulletgreen: Please try to submit to the proper folder. However, if you submit to the incorrect area, out staff will move it to the proper place for you.

:bulletgreen: Feel free to suggest faves! If the piece is good enough, we will considering adding it to our main gallery.

*There are some exception to the "chat-emote" rules. Those particular pieces usually include additional pixel art, props, disguises, or other features which make the piece stand apart from regular emoticons. It is the staff's final decision if a piece of this nature qualifies for inclusion in our gallery.

is it ok if you request to add this [link] to your gallery? its a cool little emoticon i made, and i want to share it with people, but i'm not looking to join any new groups.

also, i have a group about emoticons as well :iconemoticon-universe: , so it you would be interested in affiliating with it, that would be cool. it doesn't have that many members, so people hardly ever submit to it, but if your interested, then send a affiliation request or something.

I'm sorry, but even though the piece is sized to be an emote, it is not an emoticon. It is not a "ball with a face", so it doesn't qualify for consideration for the group.
