It's ALIVE by BlissfullySarcastic It's ALIVE by BlissfullySarcastic
I wanted to put my new shading to use really quickly.
I was working on it while doing math. xD

Quick edit: I added a frame in there to make it smoother. (Thanks for the suggestion, `Synfull!)

Lol, no. I've seen you comment on a lot of the emotes. But i thought some of my watchers should also have a look see at whats out there :D

Yeah. xD I watch lots of emote-people now. (I'd say "emotoconists," but I don't know if I'd be spelling it right. :giggle:)
I might ask Synfull for her list of people she watches...
But I already watch a lot of people. xD
If I'm gone for two hours, I usually come back with about fifteen deviations. :paranoid:
And when I wake up, I usually have about thirty in my inbox.

Nice work on this :)

Although the background is simple, its nicely shaded and all that is needed. It doesn't stand out too much, so doesn't detract from the emotes themselves.

I notice you use a 16x16 pixel body. Theres nothing wrong by that, but the norm is 15x5 so it makes the emotes look a little bloated. I guess its just personal preference though and my eyes are accustomed to the smaller size.

Your shading of the emotes has vastly improved and i hope you continue to shade your emotes in this way. :)

My one main suggestion is about the way the emotes float in the 2 side tubes. It appears to be 3 separate frames in the pattern 1-2-3-2. Its nice that you have made the emotes move slightly from side to side, but by repeating frame 2 after 3 it makes it a little jerky. My suggestion is to replace the repeated frame with another that moves in the opposite dirrection, so the emote floats in a circle. Hopefully it would make it look a little smoother.

As for the other elements of the emote you've done a nice job. I like the way you have created the spliting effect and the whole emote loops well. Its a nice idea and you've executed it well, so well done :)

I'm trying fifteen by fifteen more and more now, actually. o:
But with my new shading, I'm trying to stick to my sixteen by sixteen, just so it's not TOO big a leap for me. :nod: They just seem so tiny when I make them.
When I get used to it, I'mma try to do more fifteen by fifteen 'cause I've had other people saying the same thing. :P
I just learned them wrong from the start. BUT. I will try. <3

As for the shading, yes I'm going to keep 'em like this most likely. It's so shiny. :iconiloveitplz:
I taught myself how to do it when I was trying to shade two color emotes and was like: ZOMFG, I WANT IT! <3

I'll try to fix that now. *OpensGIMP* It'll probably be updated soon. =3
Yay fo' circles! =D
When I do update it, can you tell me if you think it's better?

Thank you very much for all your help and whatnot. And thank you very much for the compliments too. :blush:
