    Howdy all,:coffee:
    how was your day?:cat1:

    Wow, it's snowing here in the forum!:snow:
    Looks like PiratesForums is ready for 'tis great season!:elf:


    It's hard to believe that I actually have 10 followers now!!:spring:
    WooHoo!:excited:
    As always, I am super thankful to all my followers and whoever supports my artworks.:thanks:
    You guys and girls are the best!
    :cheer:

    In today's post,
    I will be giving away 10 watermark-free, super festive, iconic, christmas-ish animated emoticons,:dance1:
    which I had so so much fun while creating.:D

    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.:smh:

    After making my research on the internet,
    I found that this be a common issue to GIF format,:cry:
    unless it is changed to the newer APNG format.

    Sadly, APNG format is uncommon to use,
    and not adaptable to every platform.:sigh1:

    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?:cool:
    Fine, let's make pixel art instead!!:thumbsup:

    P/S: This is my first try-out ever on creating pixel icons,
    I am sorry if it doesn't meet your satisfactory.:sad1:

    Overall, I am quite happy with the outcome.:happy:
    Plus, I really love the cool embroidered texturized effect!!:shades:


    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!:party:



    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?:bounce::D
