Emote Freshmen SuggestionsHello, this is where you suggest emoticonists for my news series "Emote Freshmen"! Please follow the suggestion rules below.Deviant must have not been an active emoticonist for more than 1 year(but if they just made 2 or 3 emotes like 2 years ago, then that's fine). Deviant must have at least 10 emoticons in their gallery to be interviewed. You may suggest yourself if you wish. You may suggest as many deviants as you wish. If you see an emoticonist on the list that you were going to suggest, you may suggest it again, the more times they get suggested, the more of the chance that they will get interviewed(but that doesn't mean that only the popular choice will get interviewed.)!List:EightenceTanteTabataSuggested emoticonists that got interviewed:Nice-Spice(5) http://fav.me/d4sd0q5Piirustus http://fav.me/d4zqjiwWeb5teR http://

Seniority Announcements - January 2013This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.:faq29:So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community. Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many other

It's a special project where emoticonists sign up to create an emoticon picture for each of the days. Depending on how many people sign up, each emoticonist can do one or more entries. The fun of an Advent calendar is that the piece is not shown until the day arrives. So the piece for December 15th won't be revealed until the 15th!:

So I heard you like emotes? - Vol 126 - relaunchedSeries re-launchAfter quite a gap I've decided to try re-launching my long running emote news article series. I've had a couple of people mention how much they enjoyed it and now I've got a bit of extra time I feel I can give it another go. It's coming back in near the same format and with a slight change to the name 'So I heard you like emotes??' instead of the old 'So i herd u liek emotes??' as I wanted to drop the chatspeak element. I hope to post it every 1-2 weeks depending on how busy the community is at the time - So if you want more frequent articles keep posting more art .If you enjoy the series please do let me know, and if you have any suggestions or news you'd like advertised give me a note Featured emotes 1. As a fan of The Avengers I thought both of these Avengermotes sets by EmotiKai were rather clever and well designed. Each of the characters is easily recognisable and nicely pixell

January 2012 EMTC! + 22 Entries! + 1 DAYS LEFT!! Two legs attached, only four more to go! There will be pictures before this day is over. And we are only 3 away from my 25 mark. New prize added! A few points...and a small plushie! And...if we can manage 25 ENTRIES this month....I might be tempted to offer yarn creations for future contests as well. TIMEI admit, the EMTC hasn't been getting a lot of love from me lately. Real life interceding, and all the stress and craziness of the holidays. But, with the start of the new year, things will slow down and there will be "time" to do more things. Hopefully. [:shifty:] This is suppose to be the last year and all. [Cough] Anyways, I decided this would be a good theme for the new year. Perhaps your emote finally has time to focus on some of its hobbies....or it is obsessed with clocks. M
