The Beginning
I'll join all the orher emoticonists and show my emoticon creations in this year.
My frined Lucy101 forced me to create a dA account more than two years ago (Apr 22, 2007).
The first deviation was The Bonehand 14 :+fav:

September 23, 2007


January to March

After some other digitally drawn pictures and a long inactivity I started to create some emoticons for my forums (2009). For inspiration I've browsed trought the emoticon list here at dA and decided to upload one of my creations.
It was wild tongue 1 :+fav:

I haven't created the base by myself and the animation wasn't that good, too. Secretly I hate this emoticon, but I'll keep it in my gallery to seee how I've started with emoticons.

After ten days I've created one with my own base.
Chomp Chomp 5 :+fav:

And I the most important thing was my style, eyes, which were bigger than usual.
