Karen's FAQ

What programs do you use to make emotes?
I use 2 programs - PaintShop Pro X2 to make the individual frames and then Ulead Gif animator 5 to animate the frames together

How do you make an emoticon?
That's not something I can easily explain here. However, there are over 200 different emoticon tutorials over at Emotication, or you can check out my personal tutorials here

What programs would you suggest for making emotes?
There are a range of different programs out there and its about finding one (or two) that suit you. There's a list of free programs and trials on this page which is a good place to start

How do I use your emotes in a comment?
I've written a nice tutorial to explain this which you can find here. You can also check out my list of plz accounts on this journal

Will you make me an avatar?
I sadly no longer take free personal avatar requests. However you can check out my commission details on this page and my list of free to use avatars here

Will you comment/critique an emote I made?
As long as you ask politely, sure :) It may take me a while to get around to it, but I really don't mind. Just send me a link in a comment or note.

Useful links :D

About Me

About me

My name is Karen though a number of people around dA call me Syn or Synfull. I joined deviantART back in 2006 as an art appreciator, but over time I have tried my hand at a number of different art forms, before eventually finding my place in emoticons.

Offline,I graduated from the University of Birmingham, UK with a degree in Computer Science (Programming) and now work at a computer software company in Derby. I like to spend my free time relaxing with friends, watching films, travelling, dabbling in crafts, helping at my local Scout group or messing with one of my Rubik's cubes.

Please note:

Instead of thanking me for faves, please spend the time looking at stuck-in-suburbia's gallery

I thought you were a boy because of your avatar xD
Synfull Featured By Owner 12 hours ago
:giggle: It used to be even more confusing as my tagline was 'A Mysterious Spanish Gentleman' despite the fact I'm neither male or Spanish xD

I'm just a bit of a tom boy so chose to make my emote character a guy
