Welcome to this week’s volume of so i herd u liek emotes. This is the 89th volume in a weekly series aimed towards promoting emotes and emoticonists from the dA community. It features emotes posted within the past week from both well known and new emoticonists, as well as featuring some other great emote projects and contests.

As i’m still in Sweden we have another guest section from the lovely zachriel :love:

:bulletred: Featured Emoticons:bulletred:

1. Summer Ice tards by Droneguard
Summer ice tards by Droneguard fits the sunny weather perfectly with a cute arrangement of emotes, brilliant shading and simple but nice animation.

2. skittles Matryoshka doll by MixedMilkChOcOlate
Skittles Matryoshka doll by MixedMilkChOcOlate is a real eye catching emote with great use of colour and movements which flow nicely together.

3. My new pet by Colorcatcher
My new pet by Colorcatcher displays a really great concept that has been well executed with nice pixelling, great shading and perfect use of expressions.

4. :cantdonate: by Yo-Bonewire-Boy
:cantdonate: by Yo-Bonewire-Boy is another nice emote submitted this week with a fun concept and a fluent bounce motion

5. :thumb170086941:
I can’t help but smile at Fancy tard by LedMaiden. The detail packed into it shines through to make an emote which fits ‘i say’ perfectly

:bulletorange: Other great emoticons posted recently :bulletorange:

:bulletgreen: Swede's Packs Galore Personal Picks :bulletgreen:

Back in April, a contest was launched to kick off the new emoticon pack group called Pack-it-in. This contest spoke to me (zachriel) on many levels, as it combined both useful chat-friendly emoticons and uniform packs with emoticons that looked nice together. I decided long ago that I would take the time to judge these packs on a personal basis and pick my own winner squad, without having seen the announcement of the actual winners first. As Synfull is still in my apartment I figured now would be a great time.

Judging these packs was an interesting process. I started off by going through each pack, one by one, and adding 1 point for each emoticon I felt was useful. From the 59 entries still available, I then ended up with 10 packs with 6 points or more (50% good stuff). I looked at the top four best ones and gave each emoticon from these four packs a score from 0-2 (0 means I wouldn't want to use it, 1 means I'd use it, 2 means I'd love to use it often), and this is how I ended up with the selection of winners.

4. EMOTE PACK by stuck-in-suburbia

With a total score of 9 points, stuck-in-suburbia reached 4th place with the "EMOTE PACK". I especially liked the excited emoticon.

3. Multicolored Emote Pack by CookiemagiK

With a total score of 10 points, CookiemagiK reached 3rd place with the "Multicolored Emote Pack". I especially liked the angry, frightened, and rocking emoticons.

2. A Pack by Mr-Jaunty

With a total score of 13 points, Mr-Jaunty reached 2nd place with "A Pack". I especially liked the sad, angry, evil, and pouty emoticons.

1. Pack Galore Emote Entry by JulienPradet

With a total score of 14 points, JulienPradet reached 1st place with the "Pack Galore Emote Entry". I especially liked the frightened, excited, and shocked emoticons.

Some of the pack entries included themed emoticons of odd shapes, such as various animals or characters. I myself much prefer ordinarly circles to display my emotions, but I feel the Bunny Pack by KlauS92 deserves an honorary mention for highly usable bunny emoticons.

:bulletblue: Get involved:bulletblue:

Get involved is a newish section to the news article where each week i suggest a way to get involved in the community. This week the suggestion is ....

Step into the #WeEmote chat and say hi. Just be aware that the chat isn’t always active, so if at first it seems dead try again later :la:
