Welcome to this week's volume of so we heard you liek emotes. This is the 38th volume in a weekly series aimed towards promoting emote and emoticonists from the dA community. It features emotes posted within the past week from both well known and new emoticonists, as well as featuring some other great emote projects and contests.

:bulletred: Featured Emoticons:</u> :bulletred:

1. Spectrum of Emotions by priteeboy
The concept behind Spectrum of Emotes  by priteeboy is jawdroppingly good and the animation has been made to match. The use of colour and expressions is second to none and the splitting effect has also been made to an amazing pixelling standard.

2. :thumb126812583:
:i leik teleporting plz: by Kermodog is another brilliant emote posted this week. The animation is fluent throughout and details such as the door movement and teleportation animation really shine out.

3. Hot-air balloon emote trip by MixedMilkChOcOlate
Everything in Hot-air balloon emote by MixedMilkChOcOlate just fits extremely well together. The pixelling and animation, especially delayed movements is exceptional and the different expressions used just makes it a great emote to sit and watch.

4. PodTard. by Sinister-Starfeesh
It's always amazing to see how different people can include common items within emotes. Sinister-Starfeesh has done a great job with PodTard. The iPod looks brilliant and the way the emote interacts and dances to it is nicely done.

5. :OverInternetGlomp: by MenInASuitcase
What i love about :OverInternetGlomp: by MenInASuitcase is it overcomes the issue of glomping online friends. The pixelling and shading are done well and the concept has been executed in a cute and amusing manner.

:bulletyellow: Other great emoticons posted recently </u> :bulletyellow:

:bulletgreen: Legend Emotes</u> :bulletgreen:

I came across a rather shocking fact the other day. Did you know the original bucktooth emote only has 34 faves and less than 1500 views. After seeing how passionate you guys were about some emoticons on the legend, it's kinda surprising that an emoticon which is used thousands of times a day on the site has so little exposure. The main reason for this is probably how difficult it is to find the original emotes. The legend currently doesn't really make it easy to find the originals.

Therefore for this news article i decided to hunt out the originals of some much loved emotes from the legend. I'm also sticking the number of faves (when i wrote the article) that each have. I'm not saying you must go fave them, or even view them, but it is a reminder that all emoticons are art, and just because they are on the legend, it doesn't change that.

A Buck-Tooth Emoticon by ja22 - :bucktooth: / :B - by ja22 - 34 faves
D: by darkmoon3636 - :noes: / :ohnoes: - by darkmoon3636 - 78 faves
Hug emoticon by hprince329 - :hug: - by hprince329 - 44 faves
High Five by xray360 - :highfive: - by xray360 - 14 faves
Flirty by Tattered-Angel - :flirty: - by Tattered-Angel - 19 faves
Glomp emoticon by hprince329 - :glomp: - by hprince329 - 671 faves
NON-MEAN LOOKING blank stare by weaponzero - :| - by weaponzero - 268 faves
Awww by fraxyl - :aww: - fraxyl - 19 faves
Wiggling Eyebrows by matrix7 - :eyes: - by matrix7 - 2 faves
Number 1 emoticon by hprince329 - :#1: - by hprince329 - 6 faves
dev love by ralamantis - :deviation: - by ralamantis - 12 faves
Shocked and Appauled by lane - :omg: - by lane - 3 faves
Evil Laugh emoticon by hprince329 - :evillaugh: - by hprince329 - 70 faves

zachriel has also made a list of the thumbs for the new emoticons recently added to the legend. If you've been wondering where you can find the originals for them, certainly check out this journal

:bulletblue: Featured Projects</u> :bulletblue:

After last week's lull, we had a number of projects launched this week

Trampoline Project

Trampoline project by DEIDATVM

The trampoline project is a great new project hosted by DEIDATVM. To enter simply make a bouncing emote to be added to the background. There aren't many entries so far, so it would be nice to see a few more people participate

MS Paint Project

Mspaint Emote Project by luisy

One of the mistakes made about emoticons is that you need a fancy program to be able to make them. The MS paint project is looking to full itself with emotes made only in the program. So if you don't have a different program, or want to challenge yourself to make one, go check it out.

CD rack Project

:thumb127207848:

The CD rack project is a nice little project. The theme is a CD rack holder and to enter you need to design a CD cover. As all entries must be static it's easy to enter, so if you're interested, definitely take a look.

Another great selection!

I wanted to ask though, why the lack of emote DDs recently?
Reply
:iconsynfull:
Synfull Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009
I think a number of different things have contributed to this. I was previously DDing every other day, but have cut it down to every 3 days. I feel this is an ideal amount of time for me. It means a good number of emoticons are DD'd, yet not too many. With a small community its easy to run out of emoticonists who haven't had a DD in the last 3 months, and as suggestions make up around half the emotes i DD, its quite difficult to locate enough emoticons to feature without dropping the standard if one is needed everyday.

The plan is for Andy to also DD every 3 days, which gives an overall coverage of 2 DDs in 3 days. 1 DD everyday is quite intense and the day off gives some breathing space. However Andy has had some personal issues recently which have resulted in him having some time away, so DDs have not yet been set up.

Hopefully this will soon be sorted out as Andy gets into the swing of things and as we settle into the new rota for DDing. I have set one up for every third day for the next month and a bit, so we will never be fully without them.
