Official Emoticon Submissions

Postby Capellini on Fri Mar 13, 2009 9:44 pm

Ok, so after a few days of brainstorming, we're ready to start accepting official submissions of FSM emoticons.

To reiterate the standards - there really aren't any. We are looking for appropriately themed emoticons, but that can be interpreted broadly. As a basic starting point, here is the list generated at the brainstorming thread. This is just to get an idea of what users are looking for, you don't need to stick to it for submissions.

Head meets brick wall
the "Anti-Pasta"
Mad Scientist
Head up the arse
Tongue-sticking-out
Laughing
Really Angry/Steaming Red Face
Zen
Whip-cracking
Nephew Killing
Facepalm
Worried
Shrug
Barf
Sheep
Idiot
Angry Mob
Fed up/waiting
Exasperated (or whatever the heck Ken was talking about)
Lightbulb/Idea

So, that should get y'all started. Please post submissions in this thread, and I'll worry about collecting, sorting, and then running any polls if we get to the point where we have, say, 12 Idiot FSMs to choose from.

I can't believe how quickly you're pumping these out, they're awesome. I LOVE the whip-cracking one.

I don't know jack squat about animation etc, but as an aesthetic suggestion, if it is possible to make the idiot one have googly eyes rolling around, that would be perfect!

Thank you! The compensation for *blah blah blah* is that I get to spend a lot of time *blah blah blah* with little to do except play on the laptop. 8)

Your wish is my command! Image

I'd help fix the background on some, but I'm hella busy at the moment. Damn you, school!

Take your time! No-one is actually dying for lack of a few emoticons! :D

By the way, the colour-switching stuff and the 'individual pixels' seems to be something Photobucket is doing to the things when they upload. They run fine on my computer…

Here's the mob. Grab your torch and pitchforks! Image

Tig, you are amazing. You should be the official something-or-other for Venganza.

You could start a business doing these things for other websites and make millions overnight! --Well, maybe hundreds in a few weeks.

Seriously, those are fantastic. Some potentially helpful suggestions:

head up arse(ass) - donkey with FSM emergent from backside, scaled as the sheep?

Ken's exasperated look - Start with Zank's avvie, and work from there....

Don't forget your embarrased one!

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

OK, now let's look at four dimensions on the blackboard.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Thankee most kindly! I am embarrassed by your praise! Image

Three kinds of finger-drumming:

Fed-up Image

Irritated Image

Pretending to be innocent Image

Again, sorry about the colour problems!

How about one for panic? Arms going every which-way, eyes wide with pupils dilating...
Just a thought.

The Anti-Pasta is being a right pain. Never mind just messing with the background, Photobucket is mangling the rest of it.

The horns, hands and tongue were supposed to be red (they are on my computer)
but they have uploaded as white (?) Image

So I uploaded a version with the red replaced by blue and it uploaded as - green! Image The lettuce turned blue…

Perhaps I should just give up!
