Chat Event


To celebrate the holiday season, BlissfullySarcastic and I decided to run 2 chat events this month for the emote community. The first was held on Friday 21st, 9PM GMT and the next on Saturday 22nd, 4PM GMT to help open up the event to people living in different areas of the world.

Each day we had 3 different events lined up covering a wide range of emoticon related topics from a pixel challenge, to an Emoticon Legend quiz. Below you will find a round up of the second event. You can find part 1 on this page: synfull.deviantart.com/journal…

IRL Emote Challenge


In this event, we decided to take a break from the norm and challenge participants to make an emoticon without using any digital medium. This can be accomplished by crafting an emote out of objects, using an emote stress ball, or simply drawing an emote on paper.

The theme for this event was 'the holiday season'. This could include any religious holiday or combination of religious holidays or any other aspect of the holiday season (for example: winter, gifts, et cetera).

Once completed, they had to scan or take a photo of the finished work and upload it to deviantART (your gallery, scraps, or sta.sh). Participants were able to make only very minor tweaks to the finished work (cropping, adjusting color slightly), but they could not make any major changes to the finished image (no photo manipulations, no adding items/digitally made emoticons).

Check out the comment section of this journal for all of the entries.
