I have been toying with the idea of entering the NaNoEmo this year, but I know me. If I am expected to come up with a new idea every day, I might make it four days....if I am lucky. So I pondered on and off about what I could do for the month, something that would provide me with some inspiration without tons of commitment from me....and then it hit me! I will do OCs, or ECs if you will, in my style! I love to see my OCs done by other people, and have always wanted to have a reason to do others (anyone remember the support badges?
) so this seemed like the perfect opportunity for it! So, every day I will *try* to add a new OC to my grid. And, as a call to arms, I would LOVE if you guys could suggest me some OCs of active emoticonists. I watch hundreds of them, but a lot of them are no longer around and I would really like to do some of the newer ECs as well...only I may not know you or you EC yet. So, if you would like to be included in my month long endeavor, just leave a comment and let me know. I have a handful I know I will be doing, I just need to be sure I have 30.
The basic grid, in case anyone else wants to try something similar, can be found here: [link]EDIT
You will notice a huge edit here....leaving for the next couple of days to spend the holidays with my family down south. I didn't want to fall behind so I have updated to Saturday. Happy Weekend, gais, and Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~List of Emoticonists Used
Love this guy!
This gal rocks...and it's her birfday today!
I have known this lady for such a long time. I decided to attempt a mischievous look with my big eyes....Syn certainly looks devious.
I am such a fan of her work. Her animation and pixeling blow me away! I added a penguin here as I am pretty sure she loved them once.
Don't mind the fail penguin, I have never been great at emoting animals.
This fine woman is my twin in just about every way! She's my sister from another mister, basically.
And this is how I picture Minnie as a vampire. So adorable and just begging for a hug, you wouldn't see the fangs...until it was too late!
Another emote appreciator, this dude has started up his own contest with fun letters (ECC) and needs more support for his EC theme challenges.
This chick does some awesome things with pixels...and she is just all around kind of amazing.
I love how this
GUY shades his work....and his animations are always sooooo smooooooth!
This girl has a style that is so uniquely hers. Her color palette is always spot on whatever piece she is working on. I am a fan, for sure.
This guy's emotes are so punny and amusing. He has got mad skillz when it comes to coding too!
This fella is new to the scene, but his little EC is cute and his pixels show potential.
This dude's pixels skills are so understated. His shading is smooth and he conveys much on his tiny canvases.
I love this girl's static pieces.
While this guy is still relatively new to me, his emotes are not the work of a newbie. His shading style is so shiny!
New to the community, but is doing all he can to take part in projects and the like.
Plus, I love me a dark EC.
This girly does some adorable pixels...and some majorly adorably plushies! (
I have a body and leg done, I haven't forgotten the trade!)
This guy's style....
His shading is so unique and his expressions are just too adorable.
I love this dude's work, and I love how original his EC is.
This lady is into emotes and more! I saw her NaNoEmo expression sheet and just had to do Icefire grumpy.
This sexy chick uses sparkles in her dithering....what is not to love?
She cooks up cuteness with his pixels!
How could I not feature another evil EC?
Pixels, drawing, comics....just wow, really.
I love clovers.
I wish I could get my hair that blue...
In my style, this guys is just downright odd.
I hope I didn't mutilate him too bad!
Love how this EC thinks in a box.
Pretty leave head attachments!
