ArtHeart Vol. 4: Emoticons

ArtHeart Vol. 4: Emoticons

HELLO EVERYONE! :happybounce: :heart: Welcome to a new edition of my ArtHeart Feature!. This month's topic is: EMOTICONS! Emoticons (also known as Emojis or Emotes) are small but beautiful pieces of art that allow us to express thoughts and emotions without using words, or complement our sentences so that the receiver can perfectly understand what we want to communicate. Originally, emotes were created using a wide variety of characters, such as punctuation, numbers, and letters, but they evolved over time thanks to great technological advances, becoming incredible pieces of digital art :) Since then they have become very popular on all social networks, and also in artistic communities like DeviantArt, where there are artists who are dedicated to creating them for others to use. There are hundreds of emoticons with different shapes, sizes, colors, and themes for all tastes and interests. No matter what you are thinking or feeling right now, you can always find an emote

Phlum is a younger emoticonist, but that does not diminish his enthusiasm for the artform or his love for the community one bit.
He is active in various projects and community events, and you can often see him watching and supporting newcomers to emoting.
