Just looking at blogblogblog by ~pyrofiend324 brings a smile to my face. The simple animation works really well in the piece and the expression just enhances the emoticon all round.
I really adore MONEH by ~KlauS92. The animation is extremely fluent throughout and the details in the shadow and background work really well with the piece.
For anyone sick and tired of the craze going through the gallery, : IDidntSayIdFightFairISaidId: by ~MenInASuitcase is the emote for you. Its original idea is displayed really well with an awesome piece of 3D work included too.
The animation in :sceptical: by ~TheUncle2k combines with a great choice of expression to make an awesome usable emote.
Hypnosis by !ManiacalMuffin is a great piece of animation work displaying a brilliant idea to make an adorable and original emote.

Building a stronger community
The emote community seems to have hit a bit of a low recently. Communication, support and projects seem to have dipped a lil meaning the community isnt as tight knit as it used to be. However to try and make some changes, i have spotted a few things this week which i would suggest to check out.
`Mirz123 wrote a great news article called Building a stronger community which is definitely worth a read
I also launched a new feature called someone old, someone new... which i really encourage you to take a look at and consider taking part by writing your own journals.
`Krissi001 also launched #Emoticon-Projects which aims at featuring and promoting emoticon projects which ones brought much life and entertainment to the community.
~flashfrog has relaunched the Monthly Revamp Contests (MRCs) with the challenge to revamp . Be sure to take a look at the info on this page
Since theres not much else in the emotes news this week im cracking on with the next part of my colour feature. This weeks colour is orange
