muy bueno para novatooos!!!
me encantan estos emoticones...
PD:
en ves de usar ese degradado te recomiendo usar el radial (el que es como un circulo)

One question. How do you use emoticons in deviantART? Is it just html or what?

Jamaal10 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2009
You need to submit them and then just use the thumb code that dA provides.

oh. Sorry. I meant how do you use your emoticon if you aren't a member of DA?

It's just a tutorial, so anyone can view it. If they want to use an emoticon, they'd just have to make one. Hope that's what you're meaning! :D

well, actually I mean like, if you make an emoticon, how do you use it. But how do you use it if you are not a member of DA. I don't have a subscription.

Thank you so much for this. ^^ I used it to make my first emote, which is basically just yours except two shades of red. xD Anyway, it gave me basis of how to do it, and I really appreciate that. Thanks again!

This is really awesome. The cropping thing can be a little unuseful at times making it to big but not cropping can make it to small. But anyways. Its awesome. And by chance if you have any information on animation on mac please tell me. * favorites *

Helpful and uncomplicated, however I've asked around and have yet to get an answer on the following question perhaps you can help me: Is there any way to grab the entire emoticon (all the layers) and move (the eyes mouth hands body) as a whole? That would really help me on my way to making my emoticons walk, jump, etc. across the "stage" thank you for your consideration in advance. :teamwork: Oh and check out my first emoticon on my page (it's the newest deviation) lemme know what you think. Hit me back :phonecall: thanks again.

First off, thanks for the :+fav:! Second, your emoticons look awesome. I love the clapper! :D

As far as your question goes, if you want to move the entire thing, you can just highlight all of the layers (Ctrl+click on each) and then press Ctrl+T. That will pop up the free transform tool and allow you to move it as a whole.

aa XD. it's so useful ^^. But um XD. i need to ask you something, when I filled in the white, some white went on the outside <.< [i'm really new at photoshop :P] ummmmmmm how do i not have it out XD?
Reply
:iconjamaal10:
Jamaal10 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2008
If you use "fill", it will get outside the lines. It's best to just color it in with the pencil tool.

Takes a little longer, but looks much better.
