: 2000AD Smilies: Make your own!
: VinceBot 18 December, 2009, 05:01:33 PM
You might have noticed I've fixed the smilies - we now have a consolidated smiley set (the phpBB3 style, as voted in by you guys (http://2000adonline.com/forum/index.php/topic,26844.0.html)).

What this means is we can now add some custom smileys to the forum. Seeing as this is the official 2000AD forums, I don't want to just add any garbage willy-nilly, so there are a few rules.

what rules?

Can't be offensive.
Must not look hideous.
Must be of the same style as the current smilies.

Same style?

Yeah. Basically we want the smilies to all look similar and not a mish-mash of different head styles.
To help you guys out with that I've made a .psd file (zipped attachment (http://2000adonline.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=27147.0;attach=1019)) with a bunch of different facial features and a blank face for you to work from. I've included my attempt at a Judge Dredd smiley so you get an idea of what to do.

(http://2000adonline.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=27147.0;attach=1020;image)

Once you've made the smiley pixel-by-pixel, resize the image by 50% (from 40x40 to 20x20 pixels) and you'll have a nicely aliased smiley, with soft edges.
Save this as a .gif and attach it to your post.

Go hog wild!

Doesn't look too clear at 20x20, I don't think-
It's supposed tae be Middenface, but there might be too many lumps!
: Re: 2000AD Smilies: Make your own!
: Dog Deever 20 December, 2009, 03:23:51 PM
and a Tharg as well (building on the 'cool' smilie)

Thought I'd take a back seat and let others have a go for a bit. Seeing as no-one else has posted one just yet, I thought I'd have another shottie as I had an idea. This one is based on the winkie smilie- it's Nikolai Dante...
: Re: 2000AD Smilies: Make your own!
: Dog Deever 11 January, 2010, 01:03:08 AM

I forgot tae shrink the bastard!
Not sure if it's clear enough at half size...

I thought I'd give this a try. It is Ampney Crucis.

I like that, Nev.  Most amusing.

I'll have to add some of these soon. Pretty awesome so far.
: Re: 2000AD Smilies: Make your own!
: Dog Deever 08 March, 2010, 12:59:23 AM
Again, it looked ok at 40 x 40, but maybe a bit ambitious at 20 x 20...

for when somebody pisses you off, or when things are going against you...
: Re: 2000AD Smilies: Make your own!
: Dog Deever 08 March, 2010, 01:34:25 AM
Is this getting too far from the look of the basic smilies?
: Re: 2000AD Smilies: Make your own!
: Dog Deever 08 March, 2010, 01:35:28 AM
One of a set?

Hmmm- forgot his helmet wings!. I'll try to add them.

shouldn't all these be above the typey-in box??

Here's some Tharg smilies I made using Vincebot's template
: Re: 2000AD Smilies: Make your own!
: Dandontdare 10 June, 2010, 02:35:35 PM
those are very good, real emotion in those faces - but has he had his Rosette of Sirius amputated?

(http://www.2000adonline.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=27147.0;attach=1866;image) You're right. That was the first time I've drawn Tharg.

I'm a complete and utter idiot when it comes to these things, I save them, then how do I use them in a post?

oh, I think I did something wrong.  :(
When I said I'd saved them, I meant I'd saved the ones people put up, how do I use those?

If it helps anyway I found this linky and they do work. It provides an ICO file extension for use with Photoshop (mac and pc) and paintshopro

Oh, I thought they were going to appear with all the other smileys for anyone to use without downloading them first. Is that hard to make happen?

cheers mate! theyre fun to make, any requests? though some are more suited than others, i couldnt think how to make hammerstein as a cute smiley, and his head doesnt fit the square dimensions very well so i added the helmet thing he used to have. I wanted to do Finn but no idea how those pipes would fit in the picture
: Re: 2000AD Smilies: Make your own!
: Dandontdare 18 July, 2013, 11:51:16 PM
Excellent stuff.

cheers mate! theyre fun to make, any requests?

Nemesis & Torquemada - but they've both got long pointy bits, so may not be easy.

: Re: 2000AD Smilies: Make your own!
: Dandontdare 19 July, 2013, 01:54:29 AM
nice  - maybe narrow the snout a bit, shouldn't be as wide as his head, but I like it!
: Re: 2000AD Smilies: Make your own!
: GrudgeJohnDeed 19 July, 2013, 02:10:16 AM
yeah im not very familiar with nemesis the warlock, most of it was before my time and then i mustve missed book ten..

i was using images like this for reference http://www.internationalhero.co.uk/n/nemesis.jpg

i thought it best to pronounce it for the smiley? makes good use of the space too.

but here it is a little narrower - (http://i.imgur.com/74l6hKt.gif)
