Rainy emote - free for use avatar

This is my entry into #ee-motes 'Rain' themed contest [link]
For anyone interested, there is a couple of days left in the contest and it would be great to see some more entries. There are some awesome prizes on offer, so do go and check it out.

It took me a while to come up with an idea, but I eventually stumbled across this one. It took a couple of attempts to get the umbrella to look right, but I'm happy with the result and think the emote is quite adorable sitting there.

Ideally I aimed to animate it, but I don't have the time to sit down and work on the movement properly and I found cutting corners ended up with poor animation which detracts from the piece. So for now I will just leave it static.

Hey - that's a nice idea - sweet :heart:

I am working on something, too. But I don't know if I will get it to work like I want it in time :roll:

:) Thank you

Fingers crossed you do

:thanks: You did a good job in finger crossing, too - it worked! I did a nightshift and was able to participate in time :D

I am always wondering how you all do those entries in such a short time :roll:
Is there a special trick I need to learn? Even if I am just able to pixel at weekends mostly - I need endlessly for just one entry and don't even get such nice results.

Tell me your secret - PLEASE! :eager:

:giggle: Just a lot of practice. You get to know how to do certain things like pixelling or shading in a simple and effective method and it all just slots in to place. Saying that, most of my emotes take 5ish hours to complete, so it's not as quick as they may appear.

Seems to me I need to change my priorities a bit ~ maybe work for living just on weekdays to be able to do pixel pushing during the week to get my practice :giggle:

Thanks for the kind reply :blowkiss:

Thanks Karen! :hug: I appreciate the promotion you've been giving as much as the entry! =)

I really am disappointed by the lack of attention your contests seem to get. They themes are attractive and can be approached from a wide range of angles, and the prizes on offer are fantastic. I really hope you get some more support and entries.

Thanks! :hug: I don't take it personal or anything. It takes a long time to build up interest in a particular deviants activities, and while some people seem to be able to do it quickly (no doubt because of their incredible talent) I'm very fortunate to have had the attention I've gotten so far.

It'll improve! :nod:
