Emoticons.

We've all got 'em, some use 'em, and some even collect 'em...

In this thread I suggest to those of us who collect emoticons that we can share them with each other.



P.S.: Please only post emoticons that look good on any background colour...
This: rather than this:

And, please, none of that white fluff left over from a bad removal of a white background.
Like this:


Do feel free to post unfinished projects of you own, like this one of mine:


And anything you might have found since we last had one of these threads.

Around the net, threads like this one, tweaking something that exists to make a point of your own, make them from scratch... the possibilities are endless!

This, for instance,

Overall I like them, but there are a few that annoy me. I particularly hate when it is used in response to another person's post (as opposed to a ridiculous news headline or something). It is just rude and childish.

It is simple, but I really like

Re: Emoticons.

^tweaking them is just (very) small scale photomanipulation -use PS or The Gimp or whatever you have.

Or you can draw them in whichever app you have to draw in.
