Yep, it's a lot of fun, indeed! And at least for me, it is very easy, you just need to have a clear idea of what you are going to do. Layers will do the rest :3 (I do casual streams for these, if you want I can record one so you can have a first idea of how to start, but seriously, it's not a big deal TurmoilIcon ).

RazHappy So glad we inspired you. Course RazEmbarrassed Mine aren't exactly hard ... In the beginning anyway.
    First off all my smilies are made in MS Paint off the template I made years ago called "ProtoCam"* Image And from ProtoCam I then make adjustments while zoomed in all the way, pixel by pixels. I find this a good way to keep a consistant look to the smilies I create. If that is it, if it is still, I take it straight in to Photoshop, erase the background with the magic eraser and Save for Web.
    However... If you end up needing to animate smilies, because like me, you did all the static faces you can think of in one go and now need to get more complex RazCold now you have to start making the images frame by frame. It can be a simple two frame job like Madkatlaughing or HardDriveIcon but if you get more fancy like BacteriaDivide or ManxScared then you are gonna need to do a lot of them, changing the frames as you see fit to get the smoothest animation or jerky animation if that is what you are going for.
    Every frame has to be taken in to Photoshop, have the background cleared as normal. FeralStopSign BUT then you want to Edit in ImageReady. There you can then bring in other frames and add them as different layers to the first frame. Work out the timings and the order and soon you get Image
See? Not hard. Probably easier ways of doing it, I just tend to make more work for myself than is strictly nessassary RazSilly

Maaaaaaw RazEmbarrassed Thank you ^^ I really need to do more with TBone. At the moment, he only has TboneSmile and TboneWhistling offically. Course I have also got Image and Image in waiting but it is still not enough.


*((He is called that after my first SWAT Kats fan character Cameron Image whom I made a whole set for and used for his LiveJourney as it was for a Live Journey RP at the time... I'm rambling))
