Olympics Project - Closed by Synfull Olympics Project - Closed by Synfull
Edit 6-8-09: This project is now closed :)

Edit 30-04-09: And another :slow: If your interested in emoticon projects, i now suggest you check out this page rather than entering here

Edit 29-04-09: Over 4 months since my last entry i randomly recieve another. As i didn't want to turn them down, i've added it to the sheet

Please note, i am not planning on re-opening this project. If i recieve entries i will still add them, but please don't go out your way to make one.

Edit 21-12-08: I never expected to still be getting entries for this, but i will continue to add them until they stop :P

'Lo and behold The Emote Olympics 2008

As i'm pretty sure all of your are aware that the Olympics are currently taking place. So i thought it would be a nice idea to make allow all the emotes out of there to have a go in there own events. Below is a few details:

What size emotes can we submit?
To make it easy i've created everything in blocks of 50x50 pixels. Therefore you can do any canvas size (within reason) in multiples of 50 pixels. So if you wish it to be taller, a 100x50 pixel canvas is fine :)

Are you accepting animated entries?
Sorry but not this time. Static (not moving) ones only please

Do they have to have a background?
For this one yes please. You can either create your own, or use my template backgound here - [link] or the double height version - [link]
If emotes are submitted with a transparent bg, i will place it on my template background

How do i enter?
Draw out your entry, upload it somewhere on DA and please NOTE me with the link.

Do they have to be official olympic sports?
No. Let your creative juices flowing. Normal sports will be accepted, but so will any new sports you wish to create :D

Who can take part?
Anyone! Static emotes are very easy to make. So even if you haven't tried before, give it a go now. There is a list of good tutorials at the bottom of this journal - [link] and a set of emote bases here - [link] if your unsure about shading them yourself

I have another question, hows best to contact you?
Just send me a note or drop me a comment on here

This reminds me, I always look forward to winter because skiing is my life! My dream is to be on the Olympic ski team. Do you think that's completely unrealistic?

I never officially closed it even though the olympics are over. So i don't mind people still submitting to it. In the format its in, it only takes me a matter of minutes to update each time

:giggle: That turned out a really cool emote. I'm glad that you came and told me. If you want to submit a frame of that to the olympics, i don't mind having two of one sport if they are made by different people. After all the olypics is about competition ;p
