Emoticons... ok fine Emoji

Recommended Posts

We can add custom emoticons emoji to these boards, and so we should.

I can install all the regular ones but i thought it might be fun to curate a cool selection of things, in-jokes, DF references etc.

So - if you have any favourite already existing ones you'd like added please post them here

however, if you'd like to make some custom ones then they'd be even more welcome! We have to have some rad pixel artists here, right? :)

I'll grab some of the silly ones from our internal slack also!

I'm not sure how doable it is, but it would be pretty neat to have emoticons themed after DF characters, similar to the ones you can use in forum posts and chat on Steam. Eg. an angry Oleander emoticon, a confused Boyd emoticon, and so on. Unfortunately, I have no pixel art skills whatsoever though.

you can upload two versions for higher dpi screen support

The standard sizes seem to be like these ones attached.

Psychonauts ones look a bit old and blurry, we can probably do better, pixel artists at the ready!

I'll throw some ideas around with Cheeseness later and see if we come up with any goodies.

I wish we could steal borrow some of the gems from the Idle Thumbs forum, like this one: spiraldy3.gif

I had a go at making one from the cute Broken Age achievement art. It's hard to get stuff look good when scaled down.

In the attached files, you'll see the original image, my crop, the 64x64 emoji and the 20x20 version. Should I do more? The dancing hexipal, Vella thinking, and the snake would be good.

Glad you like! I wouldn't mind making more Psychonauts ones, but lack good image sources.

EDIT: Would it be OK if I used fanart to make emoticons? Only with the artist's permission, of course.

Should have said it earlier, but I'm glad people seem to like the sprites! They work pretty well here.

As a side note, you can bet that I'll be back with another set as soon as Psychonauts 2 is released.

Your sprites are awesome! :pixel-pokeylopes:  I'm definitely excited for more.
