Emoticonists on dA (9)

Fri Feb 17, 2012, 9:44 AM
:iconkrissi001:
 
   I asked in a previous Journal that every Emoticonist should write a comment there.  
You can still do it on this Journal if you haven't commented yet.
I sent notes to all of those who commented there and asked them a couple of questions.  
And now I am going to feature all of this deviants and their answers :dummy:
 If you saw that I have featured you and i didn't include all of your answers/or any answers, you could write a Journal and include all of your answers there. ;D 


What is your first reaction when you find a new Emoticonist? 
I'll take a tour through the gallery if I had the time and if I like what I see I add him to my watch list.


Pick 5 of your most favourite Emoticonists and describe why they are special to you, what makes them stand out from the others?  
camelhijackation The best emoticon shader I know, also his expressions was phenomenal.

darkmoon3636 I love her tards and the little stories she tell us in her emoticons.

CookiemagiK His animations are superb he is really talented with perspectives and have a nice humor.

clairebearer I love the details she put in her work.

Bad-Blood I love the way how he animate his emoticons. 


  Is there anything that you want to say to the whole Emoticon community? 
Mmh if you see a nice emoticon leave a comment and add it to your faves, you are going to make an emoticonist very happy with it. Or just feature the emoticons you like in your journal, together we are strong.


How could we strengthen the connection within the Emoticon community?
if we support each other with the things we like we spread the word and more and more people recognize our community and maybe we inspire deviants to join our community.


  What kind of things do you want to see less / more in the Emoticon Gallery?  (miscats excluded :stare:)
Miscats :paranoid: really I don't want to see them in our fantastic gallery. Ok but in my eyes we need more chat friendly emoticons. :)


Do you have any words of encouragement for the next Emoticon Community Volunteer? Anything that, you think that, could be important for the next CV?
The most important is that the next volunteer has a lot of fun to communicate with the emoticon community. And love our art we do. You can never make the whole community happy, don't get infected from these mad people.
 

  What did you like and what didn't you like in the time when I was the Community Volunteer?
I like all the features and informations you bring to me, also I liked the regular give away from DD's. Also your projects was very nice for the community. Mmh I did not like that you get infected from something and thought that you did not do a good job, because you've done it in a perfect way in my eyes!

What is your first reaction when you find a new Emoticonist? 
WATCH 'EM. :eager: 


Pick 5 of your most favourite Emoticonists and describe why they are special to you, what makes them stand out from the others?  
JaiLatte, litecrush, otohime0394, Mirz123, and SparklyDest

I feel like I have become closest friends with these emoticonists, and I think they all contribute a lot to the community, especially SparklyDest's EMTC (which everyone ought to know about already Anime Emote by Abfc). There are so many other emoticonists I wish I could mention here, because it's so hard to narrow my choice to just five. ;~;  


  Is there anything that you want to say to the whole Emoticon community? 
I hope that all of the petty disputes from this past year are behind us, it really seems like our community is taking a positive turn!! 


How could we strengthen the connection within the Emoticon community?
I don't think more groups or contests will help, I just think we need more new emoticonists in our community to bring another dimension of life to it! Then hopefully everyone will be creative and connected! :la: 


  What kind of things do you want to see less / more in the Emoticon Gallery?  (miscats excluded :stare:)
I would like to see more collaborations and artwork featuring everyone's OCs! :la: I would also like to see a lot of animation because I'm a sucker for animated emotes. :happybounce:  

I don't want to see less of anything in the gallery! D: 


Do you have any words of encouragement for the next Emoticon Community Volunteer? Anything that, you think that, could be important for the next CV?
Well I'm sure that anyone who takes up the position and really means well will be an awesome CV for our community! I think that it's extra important after our past year for the next CV to be a good mediator. :nod: 
 

  What did you like and what didn't you like in the time when I was the Community Volunteer?
I liked all of the news articles you posted, and how connected you were between all of the emoticonists on dA. :D I think that you did very well with choosing DDs, as well. The only thing I didn't like was all of that drama, but I'm sure I'm not the only person. Um by LittleAlienGirl We shall not speak of this! :iconraegplz: 


If you haven't been really active in the community, what could be done that you get more active again? 
I would like to enter more contests, but the only reason I haven't been so active is because of my schedule with college. :C

What is your first reaction when you find a new Emoticonist? 
I get so happy when I see a new emoticonist. I watch them instantly. I love seeing emoticonists grow and improve. :nod:


Pick 5 of your most favourite Emoticonists and describe why they are special to you, what makes them stand out from the others?  
Oh gawd. This is gonna be so difficult. :faint:

Ermm..

SanguineEpitaph - because he's a great friend and I love how much he has improved since the beginning of last year.

stuck-in-suburbia because of her pixelling skills. Her shading is probably one of my favourite styles right now.

happy-gurl - WOW. She was probably my favourite emoticonists that joined last year. She has just made gem after gem in her gallery. She is such an amazing pixel artist and I can't wait and see how much better she gets (if that's possible) by the end of this year. :dummy:

Phlum - His emoticons are so awesome. :> I also love all the projects he runs. Which reminds me, check out his Mario Kart project that he's running at the moment. :eager:

Krissi001 - I'll be honest, I get the biggest smile on my face when I see an emote of hers in my message center. Her emoticons are so... I can't even think of a word right now. :giggle:


  Is there anything that you want to say to the whole Emoticon community? 
You guys rock! :tighthug: Thank you for welcoming me into the emote community with wide open arms. :>


How could we strengthen the connection within the Emoticon community?
Watch ALL THE Emoticonists! :iconxalltheyplz:

And provide constructive feedback. I know I'm guilty of just complimenting things with no criticism. But I'm trying to work on fixing that. ;)


  What kind of things do you want to see less / more in the Emoticon Gallery?  (miscats excluded :stare:)
I'd like to see more projects, definitely. :thumbsup:


Do you have any words of encouragement for the next Emoticon Community Volunteer? Anything that, you think that, could be important for the next CV?
Go get em' tiger. :eager: Don't be worried about not being "a good CV". As long as you try your best and work your hardest, you'll always be a good CV in my books. :flirty:
 

  What did you like and what didn't you like in the time when I was the Community Volunteer?
I loved the DDs you featured. I must say, you have a really good taste in emoticons. ;D I don't really think you could've done anything better. You were awesome. :hug:


  If you are new to the Emoticon community:  Do you feel welcomed?  What could be done to make new emoticonists feel welcomed?
I'm new, but I'm also not new. I made my first few emotes back in August of 2009. :giggle: I didn't really know that there was an emoticon community back then. I just posted art because I wanted to. :slow:

Out of the emotes I made back in 2009, I think this would've been my favourite:

:thumb135260349:

Because it looks the best out of the few I did back then. :lol:

Anyway, I totally just went off topic then. But when I "came back", I did feel very welcomed. Quite a lot of emoticonists starting giving me tips on how to prove and I even made quite a lot of friends. :happybounce:

What is your first reaction when you find a new Emoticonist? 
:+devwatch: Go to their profile and watch them if I like their style.


Pick 5 of your most favourite Emoticonists and describe why they are special to you, what makes them stand out from the others?  
BlissfullySarcastic's emoticons have really pretty soft shading, great animation and very awesome ideas. And also, I like how she's not afraid to be her silly and unique self. :meow:

MerelyCubed might be new, but he's doing very well in the world of emoticons with excellent animations and ideas. I remember when he helped me on one of my emoticons too. :D

Nice-Spice has adorable emoticons as well as an awesome profile page design to go with them. She's also very nice to talk to, and gives lots and lots of love too. :la:

EternalxRequiem's emoticons are very sweet as they have a lovely use of colours, have beautiful ideas and are just extremely adorable. She is a really kind and caring person as well. :)

Krissi001's emotes have a unique style of shading as well as very smooth animation and great concepts as well. The emoticonist herself is also the very epic emoticonist who has supported the emoticon community for a very long time. ;P  
 


  Is there anything that you want to say to the whole Emoticon community? 
:wave: Hi! My 'name' is Toxic-Fox-Girl. What's yours?


How could we strengthen the connection within the Emoticon community?
:la: More huge events, contests, chats and just general emoticon making.

And also, my school had an activity during school camps every year where you had to write a nice comment or something that you noticed about each and every person who was in the room. Something similar could be done for the emoticon community (like a project) where everybody who signs up has to write a good comment about everyone else who signed up too, and in the end the comments are sent back to everyone. Kinda like Secret Santa.
But, this is just my suggestion. ^^;


  What kind of things do you want to see less / more in the Emoticon Gallery?  (miscats excluded :stare:)
:la: More cute, colourful, awesome, and epic emoticons. Just more emotes in general.

And less... I'm sorry, I'm gonna have to say miscats. :stare: (They're everywhere!)


Do you have any words of encouragement for the next Emoticon Community Volunteer? Anything that, you think that, could be important for the next CV?

:nod: Just try to do your best when you're in the position as being the Emoticon Community Volunteer, and everything should be fine. 
 

  What did you like and what didn't you like in the time when I was the Community Volunteer?
:) I really liked how you were very fair to everyone in the emoticon community and you tried to include as many people as possible into it so everybody felt involved in the emoticon community.

:D And, I don't think there's anything that I didn't like. Not that I can think of.

I felt indifferent

I loved reading everyone's answers. I'm brand new to the emote community (started this month) and everyone has been so welcoming and supportive. I've been a part of quite a few different da communities and this one is definitely the best so far :)

Pixacious is so verbose. It's refreshing. :giggle:

In all seriousness: :clap: Good job.

How many more of these are there?
