KITTY!!! That's MY pot pie!
« on: February 25, 2003, 04:46:07 pm »
Hello!
I've just completed a new set of emoticons for the board.
MasonMouse, of Yerf, was kind enough to supply me with a PSD file of the emoticons he did for that board, but I've used their expressions on a new head and instead of having the foxes or mice that Yerf's board has, we've got... kitties! (Meow...)
Enjoy them! '<img'>

They are very nice.  How about a full set, though; the  '<img'>  '<img'>  ':cool:'  ':blush:'  are still non-kitty.

And how about a Dragon smiley, just for me ]B=8)  Go on...
DC2. etc...

The full set's there. You just have to refresh your browser is all, and that'd fix the problem. '<img'>
A dragon's an option. If I can figure out how to do it in such a fashion that it suits the board enough, I just might go for it.

Ah, I see all the kitties now.  For some reason those four emoticons didn't show up as kitties until I refreshed the page.  As for the Dragon smiley - it was just a suggestion.  I'm happy with ]B=8) for now.

Yeah, you need to refresh the page since it's pulling up emoticons from your cache if you're still seeing the yellow faced ones. '<img'>

These ones are all gifs, and I'd rather not have anything bigger than 20x20 pixels.
WhiteShepherd would like some doggies too, of course.
Thing is, doing emoticons is not easy, as you may soon find out if you take a shot at it. '<img'>
You could always wait and see what I can come out with next, too. '<img'>

Chaz, I can send you the PSD file that I have of the kitties I made, if you want it. I'd like to stick to a consistent emoticon theme and "look" if at all possible.

I was just wondering, how do you go about creating a set of emoticons?  Is there a certain, specific way of doing it, or will any pictures that are small enough do?  I'm just curious, that's all.

There's no set way, really. Depends what you want it to look like. Getting a face to be recognisable at that size is fairly difficult, though. They pretty much have to be rather cartoony in order to be at all legible.

So you don't need any special programs to make them - just something that allows you to make .gif pictures.  So it's possilbe to do a whole emoticon set, just using MS Paint?

Yup, Very possible ^_^ That would probubly be better to use anyway, instead of a high almighty photo-editing program of uber doom o_O

It's easier to keep them consistent if you use something like Photoshop, though. Phothoshop's capable of doing some subtle things that MS Paint can't even begin to do.

Well, I've been playing around witn MS Paint for a bit and the consistancy problum wouldn't be a problum at all to me really. And also, working with something that small, you want exact placment. With PhotoShop you get a blured line if you are inbetween pixels. MS Paint will put the color in either one or the other. Personally I think MS Paint is more suited for the job. ^_^

And if you have problums seeing what it looks like in real time all you have to do is activate thumbnail mode when your zoomed in ^_^

You can set a paint brush in Photoshop to not do the blurring effects, so PS is still fine. I much prefer working with layers, as it is. You can't do that in MS Paint.

Really? hmmm... I guess I have some investigation to do. I'm still fairly new to it all ^_^

With the layering I agree. It does make for a very good setup, but with MS paint all you have to do is copy it. *shrugs* Aw well. I guess it really depends on which your more used to and stuff.
