Sonicstar's logo looks good, got a chance to preview it while browsing his dA.
Should the logo contain Shantae herself as well, or do you think that'd make it too crowded?

Equal props to Luke's emote. It'll be fun to see those animated ^ ^
I'll probably do a second draft of pixel emotes sometime this weekend

I look forward to seeing what you create this weekend if you have the time, Nai. XD

I meant that ShantaeVocaloid's banner replaces our current one.
Along with the picture of Shantae and the city in the background.
I think it looks better by itself, then inside that current banner we use.
It looks a little wierd inside there. At least to me.

No misunderstanding, I think. I actually presented three choices and that was one of them. XD Ah well, once I can figure out how to get the text to cooperate the way we would need it to tomorrow, I'll switch it out for SV's shiny new logo and find some other use for our now officially dated banner. =P (Not on the forums, of course. I'll probably repurpose it as a minimalistic promotional banner for members to use in their signatures on other communities, if they like.)

Okay, as it turns out, my emoticon idea will work at a 64x64 resolution, it just has to be drawn at a that size, (i.e, no working resolution above that size.) and inked in with 0.03 sized lines with variable width disabled. As shown below :



So I will be able to make emoticons each weekend until we have a large enough amount of them, and maybe with the help of others too if anyone wants to contribute. So that means I can start work on my requests again next week, finally. ;__; As for pixel-based smilies, I'm literally too sick of pixel art right to come up with anything good, so that's a dead-end on my part until at least two dozen emoticons are done. I wound up getting bored and used earlier this afternoon to install/configure the MATE DE on my Xubuntu install, instead of actually making pixel art, that's how bad it is and I normally don't back down from a ton of work that needs to be done, physical or desk-based.

Here's my second draft of the smiley sprites:


Again, nothing too complex. Just slightly bigger.
Was kinda wondering too if people may prefer the same set of smileys for multiple characters.
Perhaps labeled like: :ShanHappy: and :RottyHappy: as an example

Those are pretty good!

And that's actually not a bad idea. If people have different favorite characters, then they could...use them...

...I-I lost myself there, sorry. >.<;

I second SV there, Nai, nice! ^^ They're definitely cute and expressive. :3 You can add shading or highlights to them if you want as well, but the lack of either could mean less bandwidth to hog if we animate them too. =P Ah, the choices!

I was thinking maybe different characters could carry different expressions, because I feel making sets of characters with a variety of faces might be redundant. Unless each character expresses emotion differently and obviously in their own character, hmm. Either way I'm hoping not to spam each smiley section with hundreds of them, that would extend the page loading time more than I'd like. (Like maybe sixteen emoticons and smilies for every section.)

Also, I forgot to change up our logo yesterday. :# I'll go do that and then get to making an angry Risky Boots emoticon, I've got the perfect face in mind, it's so evil! >:D

Looks great. Extra Smile

But now the white text is impossible to read.
A change of text color is in order I'd say.

Besides that, why not making it bigger?

That's what I've been trying to figure out for the past fifteen minutes. XD Once I find the right variable to do that in phpBB3, (Because all the stuff I'm finding is for phpBB2!) that and maybe some text bolding too, but right now the text has to be readable. #_#

EDIT : Haha! Just needed the HTML tag <FONT COLOR=#490BB5></FONT> wrapped around the site's descripion. =P Shaved a few characters since we hit the limit anyway, but it's done right. ^^ Let me know if you want a different color for the description, you can decide on some new ones here : http://html-color-codes.info/

I think you have overlooked my last question.

How about making it bigger? :/

It's done, but I had to reword some parts of the description because of the lack of characters. XD So what do you think? Is it still okay?

I meant making the logo bigger, not the text. :/

I would make a terrible genie. @_@ Didn't realize you meant the logo! Ah well, at least the text is more readable. XD

Turned the knob to wombo size! How's it looking now? =P

I'm so glad we have that properly implemented now; looks tons better too. XD This place feels a lot fancier now! I gotta thank ShantaeVocaloid again for creating the logo, it's like that perfect finishing touch the skin really needed. ^^

It does look incredible now. Funny how that logo and a bit of background can make such a difference. Good work, guys!

Really glad you guys like the smilies : ) (no pun intended)
Here's the finalized sheet:


Some of these may actually look better animated: I could draw additional frames if need be,
but would have to have somebody else make them into transparent .gifs
