    I have been working on these 4 little emoticons for the last couple of days... and I decided to share them with the group.

    this one is ranting:

    this one just realized a mistake was made:

    this one has something to say! but it has been censored:

    and finally ... this one thinks that this is all tooo funny:

    Let me know what you all think!

    no, right now they are beta... and I am hosting them at my personal FTP space... however, I have already shown these to the staff... and so far the feedback has been quite positive! These will most likely be used... Just wanted to get some feedback.

    I love them.......hope to see more in the future. Sometimes the conversations just seem better if you have a "emo" to compliment your post

    While I am sure there is more than one way to make a smilie... this is how I do it.

    Open up MS Paint (yes it is OLD ... but it handles BMP the best...

    I start with a base blue circle .. .the DH blue.

    then I make one fram of the animation... save it as f1.bmp

    starting again with the base blue circle... I create the next frame of animation, it gets saved as f2.bmp

    this continues until I have all of my frames made.

    Using Paint Shop Pro, I remove the white border from around the blue circle ... anytime that you have a circle inside of a square there is going to be white at the corners... I use PSP to open each frame, and remove the white... saving it as a gif image...


    so on , and so forth.

    Then using ULead GIF animator pro... I combine all the individual frames together in a full sequence animation... after being saved... the GIF animation is then opened in IE, and Mozilla to test the frame sequence.

    If anything is wrong, I go back and correct it.

    Finally... (this can be anywhere from 1 hour to several days later) the finished product is uploaded to my personal FTP server, and tested in the forum (hidden area)

    and then later is added to the forum if it has passed all the tests, and the staff likes it.

    and there you have it... the product cycle of EVERY SINGLE smilie that we have here on DH.

    I hope that you enjoy using them... as much as I enjoyed making them.

    :oops: this little guy went under a lot of work... took me many hours to get the coloration correct... you have no idea how difficult it is to get pinkish cheeks on a blue guy ... without it all turning purple!
