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 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

Time for an update

Sat Apr 1, 2017, 2:46 PM

Well, two months seems to have past by without me posting some sort of update, mainly because there's been nothing to update people on.

Life continues to plod along at a nice pace. Work is going well, and I'm enjoying my spare time (though there never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done).

I'm enjoying the fact the clocks have moved forward and the evenings are getting longer. It's nice to return home whilst it's still light, with enough time left over to consider doing something before retreating indoors.

At the end of next week I'm going to be heading up to the land of lochs and haggis (Scotland) to visit Kyramy for a few days. I'm really looking forward to it, both for the opportunity to catch up with a friend and to explore part of the UK I've yet to really venture into.

Recently I can't say I've had any motivation to do any art, and that's ok. I have a few projects to do at some point in time, but I'd rather wait until I want to do them, rather than putting stuff together for the sake of it.

Other than that, no real news. I'm deep in spring cleaning mode right now, so guess I better get back to tidying. Hope you are all having a great year so far, and catch up with you soon!

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 a-kid-at-heart's gallery
