I think anger, the ‘yes’ emote (which reads as happy), confused, dead, bored, and scared read pretty good. Laughing reads fine as well, same for clown/devils of course. Many of the rest I wouldn’t be able to guess the emotion on if the yellow emotes weren’t there to give it away.
The ‘don’t know’ emote looks like he’s worried/going to throw up. The :P emote lacks the smile that conveys the ‘joking’ emotion. The sunglasses emote needs darker shades, I think. The ‘blah-blah’ emote looks violently pissed rather than dejectedly dismissive. The ‘kissing’ emote looks kinda like a puffer fish, a distinctive mark of ‘kissy faces’ is that the cheeks sink in rather than bulge out. The slightly open (and wide) mouth also throw it off.

Guess I'll throw my hat in the ring.





Some of them are really awful and need to be redrawn, especially cry and lol.

EDIT: updated with a few more
EDIT2: more updates. animated ones are on their own because I don't know how to combine multiple animations into one gif.

Green = Reading okay
Yellow = Need to refine
Red = Need to start again


Do you agree?

Comments?

I don't sit too close to my monitor and a lot of the expressions are hard to see from here (4ft away- I have my monitor undermounted on my loft-bed). A bit more contrast could help in these areas. But I really like your style.
I really don't see why people should go to the PJ mascot; while it's a bit of a tribute, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the basic smiley schematic. Well done!

Made a few more... (not sure which one is better for love/fav)



Fun to see so many variations amongst the contributions. Jinn's work is great (and I love the logo) but for emotes I really prefer something clean & simple like Hatch's... think mine might even be a bit too complex for my own taste! :D

Well, tried some more contrast here:



Guess I'll have to outline the tears somehow since they don't show well on bright bkgs.

Jinn, I love them soo much, but I am afraid I would never be able to look at a post containing 3 smileys and then concentrate on the text!
Therefor I so far would vote on Cure or Hatch

@cure - they're all very expressive, but unfortunately, I think your use of colour is much too strong and as a result upstages the emotions themselves.

I quite like cure's.  They seem very clear and crisp. No fat on the edges to trim, y'know?

@Jinn: I'll admit I'm not a big fan of yours as smilies, but I I thought they were as pixel art until I tried to view them on this old computer at work. There is so much detail in most of them that they just turn into yellowy brown messes.

@Cure; Zero AA on the borders while there is a lot of AA inside is a bit contradictory. Love the expressions though.

I like the ones by Hatch and the pencils. =) Jinn's emoticons are way too good to be used, in my opinion: they might become annoying because of their detalisation level.

I'm talking seriously, pal... I think my pieces are becoming less and less acceptable with time, and I'm not talking about just this emoticon set...


Anyway, another attempt to make it look better. (The one in the center.)



Honestly, I don't think Less Details make it better. But anyway, it was fun to do. ^^



Good luck, pals!

C'mon... you're not letting a few (negative) remarks about your frequency of fan-art bring you down, are you? I just think ppl are impressed by your skill & energy and curious about what you can/could accomplish in other areas.

For the icons; yours are great gfx, just as Dumbo's...the Nerd is just a tricky character to portray as easy-to-read Smilies.


@Cure:
Yeah, they are a little washed-out for Smilies...will add a bit more color & contrast in the base yellows.

Some really great stuff already.
Imo, Likandro's set has the best overall look because they read the easiest. Hatch's set and the pencils are cool too.

Jinn and Dawn are (insert emo smiley here)

I want one of these for my profile badly, so I had to make a set.
