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

Platform 9 3/4

Thu Jan 1, 2015, 2:15 PM

2014 has now passed and I hope you all had a good new year's eve. I was hoping to celebrate the clock ticking into 2015 from the comfort of my new flat, but sadly I've hit a few new problems so have yet to officially move in.

In short, the boiler for my flat doesn't work. This leave me with no heating or hot water in any of rooms, which coupled with the couple of inches of snow we got last week, makes it difficult to spend more than an hour to two in the building without getting too cold.

Initially we hoped it would be a quick fix, but after two trips from the maintenance guy, 2 separate plumbers and a number of phone calls, I now have to wait until Monday when the boiler manufacturer can come over to inspect it. Whilst I'm a bit annoyed at the situation, it's not really anyone's fault, so I'm now just sitting and waiting until I can move in.

Despite the problems, the move seems to have gone reasonably well. Most of my stuff is now over at the flat (except a new ornaments and other items I need on a daily basis).

I now have internet installed, which I geekily called 'Platform 9 3/4' and the 'Room of Requirement', though my phone line has unfortunately died so I have an engineer coming out tomorrow morning D:

All in all, I've actually really enjoyed running around a load of shops buying the items I needed. I was fortunate that I'd saved up a lot of my wages over the past months to allow me to pick out (within reason) the version I wanted rather than having to always go for the cheapest option. So the place definitely feels more like a home.

Whilst on the topic, if there is anyone out there that already has my address and would like my new version, let me know and I'll note you a copy ¬.¬

Anyways, here's hoping that 2015 will bring less problems and less stress, and I can settle in and enjoy my new home. I hope you all have a fantastic year and best of luck for whatever comes your way.

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 recently graduated from the University of Birmingham, UK with a degree in Computer Science (Programming) . 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
