Critique you want, ey? <img src="…" width="18" height="20" alt=":plotting:" title="Hmm. Evil plotting in progress." />

Although fairly short, you've managed to handle the simplicity of this emote extremely well. The shading is perfect, the animation of the string looks fine to me, and the expressions are really great as well. The 'holy crap wtf' look on the balloon fits it so well. But, although it's fantastic, I think they're are some minor things you can do to improve this to make it perfect! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";P" title="Wink/Razz" />

For starters, the stationary hand of the green, the one holding the balloon, could be bobbing up and down to show the physics of the balloon slightly more clearly. Of course, not that it's a problem now. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":B" title="Bucktooth" /> I am clear of the fact that if you do decide to follow through with that suggestion, the whole animation of the ballon, the bobbing of the balloon's hands and especially the string will have to be changed. That's something I'm too lazy to create, if you ask me. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" title=":P (Lick)" /> But go ahead if you want to.

I think you could also add some frames for the greenie to blink. His blank never-ending expression doesn't really suit the grin and the idea. However, I understand if the green's expression is supposed to be looking creepy. I just don't think, personally, that the two-pixel eyes suit the creepy look. Maybe tard eyes, or large white eyes with small diluted pupils could fit? Just a suggestion. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":shrug:" title="Shrug" />

Overall though, you've done a great job on such a simple but excellent idea. It's looking fine now. Unless you want to improve this, keep it as it. I'm just fussy sometimes.

i don't really know much about emoticons but this really drew my attention.. the expression on the little green dudes face is just priceless! (he reminds me of a little kid that has just convinced his parents to buy him something cool) and i really love the 'balloon's' blank look and how his arms swing as he moves..

i like how the animation isn't perfectly smooth because it gives the impression the he is walking with the balloon or jolting it around..

i think the green and the blue go really well together and are not too bright and the shading you have done makes them almost look shiny

i was just wondering where the green dude's arm is?
is it behind him?

i think this a simple but awesome little emote <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)" />
