Howdy all, how was your day? Wow, it's snowing here in the forum! Looks like PiratesForums is ready for 'tis great season! It's hard to believe that I actually have 10 followers now!! WooHoo! As always, I am super thankful to all my followers and whoever supports my artworks. You guys and girls are the best! In today's post, I will be giving away 10 watermark-free, super festive, iconic, christmas-ish animated emoticons, which I had so so much fun while creating. Each of them is sized 100px x 100px square, with transparent background. === SO... Why are they pixelated?? I have struggles for smoothing outlines when exporting animated gifs in Photoshop. After making my research on the internet, I found that this be a common issue to GIF format, unless it is changed to the newer APNG format. Sadly, APNG format is uncommon to use, and not adaptable to every platform. Then I think to myself, since the outlines are jaggy, why not i just make use of this disadvantage and invent it into something cool? Fine, let's make pixel art instead!! P/S: This is my first try-out ever on creating pixel icons, I am sorry if it doesn't meet your satisfactory. Overall, I am quite happy with the outcome. Plus, I really love the cool embroidered texturized effect!! For anyone of you who wants to start a Christmas Project, I hope this post ignites your inspirations on nail-art, cookies decoration, scarf & sweater embroidery, DIY gift cards, and more! You may save these images for the usage such as festive emoji for your chats, icons for your private websites. Enough said, let's get straight to the results, shall we?
