Welcome to the latest volume of so i herd u liek emotes??. This is the 123rd volume in a fortnightly series aimed towards promoting emote and emoticonists from the dA community. It features emotes posted within the past few weeks from both well known and new emoticonists, as well as featuring emote projects, contests and news.

:bulletred: Featured Emoticons :bulletred:



1. Your call is important to us by pjuk
Your call is important to us by pjuk really captures how people feel when placed on hold. The simple animation works well with the emote’s expression to create a cute little emoticon.

2. :thumb251383258:
dA emote community by LedMaiden is an adorable representative of the emote community. The full spectrum of colours just goes to show how varied our community is and the wave of bouncing really catches your eye. Be sure to look past the preview.

3. Member of the Community Stamp by PokeartKid
Member of the community stamp by PokeartKid is a brilliant stamp for any emoticonist. The emotes used are simple but effective and the fun border gives the impression of a linked chain of emotes.

:bulletorange: Other great emoticons posted recently :bulletorange:

Mailbag project

Just saying it here, but a lot of my contestants entries are ending up on this page. :)

:clap: I guess Antimotes is the other newest emoticon group on the list along with #Emotitars

I didn't even know that there were legend emotes! :omfg: :wormnomnom: :leetcrab: :DEVlANT:

I don't like the :leetcrab:! It seem useless. :saddummy:

SynfullHobbyist Artist
I think all are pretty useless, but i reckon they are practices to do with the ew emote system
chrsfaria's avatar
chrsfariaHobbyist Digital Artist

YOU'RE WRONG. There are, in fact, three new emotes (though one isn't on the legend :XD:)

The third is :DEVlANT: :DEVlANT:
Synfull's avatar
SynfullHobbyist Artist
Then its not on the legend. Just like :wheat: and :llama:. They aren't legend emotes either :B
Phlum's avatar
PhlumProfessional General Artist
Llama isn't on the legend?
I'm sure it used to be...:hmm:
Synfull's avatar
SynfullHobbyist Artist
I think it was at one point, but was removed cos its so big. So now its a usable emote not on the legend
Phlum's avatar
PhlumProfessional General Artist
Ah. That makes sense.

In that case they really should replace it with =Caeser1993's llama :shakefist:
