|Emoticons compo||Invite by blackpawn|
You may have a noticed a bunch of new emoticons floating about Sketch Club this past week - they've been created by a few of the artists here and now it's time to open it up to everybody in an emoticon compo!!
To make your own emoticon just open the layers panel in Sketch Club and choose load image then scroll down to select the Emoticon Template in the Compos section. Pick the Pixel tool and set the size to 16 if you're using an iPod/iPhone or 32 for iPad. Then just draw whatever you like in the black box! (You can even decorate outside the box if you like but only the boxed area will be used in the final emoticon) After you upload your sketch, set the emoticon tag and the server will extract and generate your emoticon! It gets displayed in the details section of the sketch page.
If you'd like some inspiration or examples check out the Emoticon Guide on the BBS to see what's currently available!
The top 20 entries will become public emoticons for everyone in Sketch Club to use!! And that's not all, 3 of the top 20 will be picked at random to win their creators $10 Amazon.com gift cards! And even that's not all, everyone will be able to choose one of their own creations as their personal emoticon to use in comments and chat!
Now let's see what we all can do with just 400 pixels!
