Making "Emoticons"

Recommended Posts

Yeah, we all use them in MSN and Skype, so I gave in and made one for my MSN Messenger, which is an X D face. It was actually really fun to make (made with Photoshop BTW).



Tell me if its any good please, I want to make more and eventually post them on DeviantART or something :P this is my first one so please dont be so harsh.

Its 40 X 40 pixels btw, normal size for smilies.

That X-D emoticon looks beaten. Also, Doomworld has disabled emoticons, presumably to save space. Only post-hell still shows them, perhaps in response of some admins' dislike for them.

Not bad. The only suggestion I would make is that the world already has a ton of generic yellow happy-face-type emoticons, and maybe it would be cool to make some more esoteric or themed ones. (The Public Commander Keen Forum has an interesting set of Keen-themed emoticons, for instance.)

There certainly aren't enough of these on the web, better make 9000 of 'em.

I don't think I've ever heard of emoticons as huge as that one being "normal size". Something like half that, maybe.


From tutorial and info I read, most smileys are made at 40 x 40 to be compatible with all messengers, MSN scales them down to the size you are used to from 40 x 40 smilies. They are made bigger for things like Skype (which has larger smilies) and most apps scale them.

I could turn that cacodemon into a : D smiley. I would need to rip some new doomguy faces those ones are way too tiny. Ill finish them and post them when they are complete.

Too bad Doomworld doesn't even implement those as "smileys" (I hate any word containing 'emotion', from now on).

I made doom related emoticons some time ago. Some of them are now used on Newdoom.


I also made this set of emoticons:

If anyone wants to steal these, they're more than welcome. Gave up on my forum a while ago:
