Big Minnie by Synfull Big Minnie by Synfull
2011 was a rough year for the emote community with a lot of drama cropping up in the second half of the year which wasn't particularly pleasant for any involved. However, as 2012 seems to have brought a fresh start to the community, I have one last point from 2011 I wanted to lay to rest.

Though not directly involved in any of the drama, from being a well respected community member `Mirz123 always seemed to get dragged in sidewards. I know some of the comments and clashes thrown around hit her quite hard, so for a while now I've been wanting to make her a piece not only partly as an apology, but also to show the respect I have for her. Through all the troubles and issues she remained strong and stood by her roles in the community where many others (myself included) jumped overboard. It was a noble thing to do, and at several points I felt she was the last rope keeping the community together.

As `Mirz123 and I share different opinions we often work in opposite areas of the community and sadly most of the times we exchange comments it's over some small disagreement, or debating a point. I don't feel I often get the opportunity to tell her thanks or show her some respect, so I thought a deviation would be a nice gesture.

I've lost count of the hours I've spent on this. The large base was fairly quick and easy to construct but I've spent a good couple of days getting the features and emotes looking right. I'm proud of this piece and I hope Mirz enjoys it too.

And sorry for the deviation name. I couldn't resist xD



Special thanks to =Kyramy and =BlissfullySarcastic for offering opinions and ideas all the way through. Flove you both :heart:

That is so adorable, especially the monkey and the emotes on it, and the background. :love:

As well as that...
I like how Syns sitting there, making that face... forever and ever and ever... oh god stop staring at me! I'm not in the mood for staring contests D:
Stop it! D:

*Forever being watched*

What program did you make this in?

Paintshop pro 12. Though you can make emotes in a range of programs from MS Paint to GIMP to Photoshop

This is a wonderfully kind gesture. I hope that the community will stay strong through out 2012, I think you may have just started the repair. :aww:
I often wonder how you create such wonderful big emoticons, I wish I was as talented as you. :huggle:

I always have a knack of stumbling upon gifts. I always miss them in my message center, but peek in at someone's page and then am like "WTH?" :giggle:

This is very sweet and I thank you for this. I have said it before, I know I can be painfully insecure and it really does add to so much of the drama--though that is never my intention. It's kinda crazy how we all just have the inherent need to be accepted, be it at age 13 or 40.

I have long told you I admire you much. Have admired what you did/do in the community. I still do. I hope we can work together in new areas to keep things moving.

I do think this piece is lovely. I adore Minnie's bow, and Syn looks particularly cute. I laugh, because I read Krissi's comments on your dragon emote about the sky and I was thinking "I like how she does her skies" and here it is on this one. :happybounce:

I am game for rebuilding bridges and starting things fresh in 2012. Thanks for taking the initiative. I hope we can make this work. :hug:

:giggle: I wasn't sure whether to post a comment linking to it, but on the advice of friends decided to wait a few days to see if you found it on your own.

:nod: 2012 has got off to a good start and I really hope it stays this way :cuddle:
