Sprites In The Style Of The Cousin Emoticons!; Currently accepting requests

To start out with, here's a remake of an old off-model emoticon of You that I made with :prince 's body and :huey 's head:
Posted Image

And next up, some KOTW Member emoticons :D (but only a couple)!

First, vix!
Posted Image
Unoriginal poses: Posted Image
EDIT: 4-Frame Version: Posted Image
My computer couldn't properly recognize the first gif, but it worked fine when posted, so, oh well... :shrug

And now, Slowbro!
Posted Image
Alternate: Posted Image
These are both based off poses from the Slowbro sprites of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers Of Time And Darkness. The first one is the walking animation, and the second is the idle pose. Sorry it looks so fat and silly, but in the end, is that not what the Slowbro species truly is?

And finally, yours truly (this has been in my signature for the last day or so, so you've probably already seen this)!
Posted Image
I am clasping my hands together. I have not, as you may have suspected, replaced my arms with wings.

And, well, that's it. Be sure to give me feedback and suggestions! Please please please please please.

Thank you! :D

...So you're not going to demand FEEDBACK and SUGGESTIONS, so that you can "grow as an artist and keep the sprite train rolling"?

Well, I wasn't going to, but then I realized that if I tricked you into saying it, people won't think I'm rude! :D

:angry ...

As long as we're on the topic, vix/Slowbro, what did your avatars look like in the past? This seems to contain some erstwhile avatars of yours. Are there any other members you feel deserve an emoticon? And who are the other people in that image? Do you think THEY would like some emoticons?

I really don't remember what other avatars I've had over the years. I might still have them on my computer, who knows.

As for the sprites, I really couldn't tell you what else to do. You could always make custom cousins?

I've no particular desire to make custom cousins, as I don't really have any good ideas and we have more than enough already.

I'd be tickled if you looked for your avatars of years past. I could make a little retrospective! On that topic, could you also please answer the other questions in my last post's final paragraph? Thank you. :china

Since no-one seems to have any suggestions or feedback ( :angry :unsure :( ), I'll posit some of my own:


Well... you seem to have the scale and outlining rules down (though your Katach314 is a bit big and your Slowbro's arms are iffy), but I think you're using too many frames and making the animations too smooth for the jerky style you're trying to emulate. And is your You remake made from the palette of the existing emoticons? IS there a palette to the cousin emoticons?

Perhaps you could make the fans of WLK/TMK and/or the animals of MMK? You could also do the stage entrances of BK. Something easier could be doing the KD versions of the rest of the first cousins, replacing the smiley face in :roll with a katamari, or changing the cousins' animations to match their WLK/MMK-onward idle stances. I wonder what happened to those TMK cousin emoticons someone made a while back...

(Thanks for the help, guys.) (We'll always be here for you!) (Thanks, but don't talk to yourself in front of other people. It'll scare them.) (Oh. Alright.)

But beyond all that, thank you for the compliment. It was short, but it made me feel good. :china :D I might make some more emoticons based on prominent members or take up one of my own project ideas, but I've been kinda busy lately, so I dunno.

In closing, I can't believe I started a thread on India Ink! :woot

This may have been one of mine at some point:

I think this one was a really old one of mine:

I don't think I have any others. There might be some buried on my photobucket somewhere, I'd have to look.

And I don't think I really have any answers for the other questions. :shrug

Behold!
Posted Image
Posted Image (I gave up on using preexisting colors on this one and just grayscaled/tinted it)


Katach is making me present the rest of thess to "make our posts more visually interesting". I'm ASSUMING that means he's using me as eye candy. But it makes sense, considering I am FABULOUS. :heart :princess :love

(Ahem!) Anyway...

First up to the emoticon... plate... we have Carrot!
Posted Image
No literal carrot because it would be too visually distracting. We're all about ASTHETIC here! :D

BUT I'VE GOTTEN DISTRACTED! Don't bother sitting down, because you're just going to S*T*A*N*D U*P when you see Kyun!
Posted Image
(The member, not :kyun , of course)
Everyone's favorite CROWbar! :lol
(I hope that's a crowbar or else this joke won't work)

...Uhhhhh, Marbig!
Posted Image

And... those are all the Cousin members we could find with working (I'm sad too, Drouge, I was looking forward to doing yours) and recognizable (sorry, FoominFan and June Showers... unless you have some suggestions...) avatars! So now we have to step back in time (past the Missing In Cosmos people who don't have working avatars) to the Lost In Cosmos members with working, recognizable avatars that we felt like doing!

We'll begin with some somewhat-improvised JWtheMighty!
Posted Image

And some also-somewhat-improvised-not-to-mention-sort-of-deformed-in-the-legs-and-also-kind-of-weirdly-scaled Karppa!
Posted Image

Now for Queen of The Cosmos, who turned out surprisingly well, if I do say so myself!
Posted Image

And last but not least, the unexpectedly-hard-to-make-and-even-harder-to-see-depending-on-your-theme Trezur!
Posted Image

We honor you, great Cousins of the past; may you someday return to see what we created for you!

And we'll wrap this up with a KOTW MEMBER DANCE PARTY! (And I'm in there too BECAUSE I SAID SO)

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image:princessPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Everyone's together! That was another one of my ideas.

I'm planning on doing prominent Second Cousin members and recent members, and you were on that list. BUT NOW YOU ARE NOT.

Also EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE REQUESTS EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE :yay

EDIT (October 3rd): Alright, they're finally done and uploaded! Let's go!

Anything or anyone to add, board-goers?

Emoticon Parade:

I'm double-posting just so people will see that I edited my old post. :D

While I'm here, I just want to point out that I made a Halloween avatar (featuring :princess as Mary from Ib and Posted Image as... a reptile, I guess). In case you're reading this post-Halloween 2017, here it is, along with the alternate Emoticons:

Haha that's cute good job! :thumbsup

If I remember corrrctly I believe s0njas0n had an image of a ninja hanging from a building in the Japanese area in beautiful katamari. GappieMikan I think was a pixel art of mu with a disconnected cloaked body with bat wings? I could be slightly wrong though. Drouge's icon was a homestuck character, rose lalonde. I'm not sure how he did the multiple avatars either but I was able to find one of the icons he had or at least a gif that looks a lot like it:

If you're looking for gyhu's old picture it was this:

If you're looking for the base it was an old meme called fsjal.

Thanks, Jungle-King! :D Here they are.

Drouge!:

(I based the body structure after Homestuck's characters, hence the lack of arms and incredibly deformed body structure.)

Gyhujikolp! (thanks to various troubles during uploading, I can now type that name from memory):
Posted Image

Very orange upload today.
Jungle-King, thanks for the descriptions, but I need visuals to accurately depict them :( . Did you like your emoticon? (Posted Image) Any suggestions or feedback?

And I almost forgot the EMOTICON PARADE:

But these are really neat :D and thanks for making a little Slowbro!

I think my avatar was always my silly Slowbro. He used to smoke a cigar :wacko even though I never smoked and I dislike second-hand smoke, but I like him better without it.

Sorry I didn't respond for a couple days. :heh

Anyway, thanks for the compliment! Praise means a lot to me, especially from a katamari veteran like you. :D

If you'd like a cigar version (I considered making one back when I made the original one, but I didn't really want to so I didn't), just point me to a picture I could use for reference. I AM currently accepting suggestions, so if you want me to make someone/something else, just give the word :howyoudoin ...

EDIT (October 22): By the way, I made Testdummy!:

And yes, Iím very impressed with the detail you put into my emote. It must have not been easy.

Yeah, I rarely ever spend that long on an emoticon. :lol I think the stripes on his chest make the whole thing look a bit too detailed and busy, but unless you take umbrage at that, I feel no need to change it.

And extra thanks on the feedback. Got any suggestions for me? :howyoudoin

(And congrats on 500 posts :china )

EDIT (November 11th): Just realized my thread now has more views than the thread devoted to the Katamari On Ice fangame. And none of the devs are around anymore, so we can't even ask them what they made before they stopped :( ...

Also I changed my profile pic again is it cool

EDIT (November 18th): Decided to sprite :king 's stages of development as seen in the WLK cutscenes/BK's Chateau Notre Desir:
Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image (and a bonus:) Posted Image

(Yes, I know we already have a child King emoticon, but I wanted one with the pattern I was using for baby King).

And once I'd done those, I realized I should do versions of :king from each game like I'd always wanted so we didn't have to use his kid form all the time!

Behold!

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

(And here are version without cloaks, in case the cloaks made them too messy: Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image (WLK and BK King don't seem to have cloaks in any of their depictions, but if you find an example of them with cloaks, please tell me)).

And, er, that's really all I have to say!

Besides demanding politely asking for Posted ImageFEEDBACK and Posted ImageSUGGESTIONS.

Oh, cloak, defintely. I just offered the cloakless ones in case the others were too messy. Apparently not. :shrug

And if you're actually straight-up adding them, which would be AWESOME :yay, could I suggest ": kingkd"[1] for the KD King's emoticon code, ": kingwlk" for WLK's King, and so on?

And before we go ahead, is there anything you want me to change? For example, I only used colors already used in existing emoticons, so if you wanted me to add custom, more fitting colors, I could.

[1] The space between the colon and the rest of the code is just so that, were it instated, viewers would see the words instead of the emoticon.
