Happy Birthday Fella :D by zakarranda Happy Birthday Fella :D by zakarranda
Edit: Thank you everyone who :+fav:ed, everyone who commented, everyone who suggested this as a DD, and thank you ^mintyy for featuring it! :tighthug:
:woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo:

My birthday present for Fella: juggling nine happy deviants in the air ^_^

This emote nearly murdered me. If there was an easier way to animate each individual flying emote, then I don't know it. But I am open to critique hehe. I thought about nixing the ^^ eyes, instead going with happy mouths, but decided I'll start using mouths on an animation that isn't already giving me a stroke.

Factoid: I realized that I was short one color, and I wanted them to be distinct from each other. I didn't want to have a black or white emote, so instead I went with a brown one, which became labelled "chocolate" in the layers palatte.

Photoshop CS4
90 frames
~10 hours

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-08-07
Happy Birthday Fella :D by *zakarranda was suggested by more than 10 deviants ! And I couldn't do anything else but just feature it on the 10th dA birthday ! Stay devious ! ( Featured by mintyy )
:iconindae:
I love this. I really do. One of the best basic-idea anitmated emotes i've seen in a long time.

The way you have perfectly managed to spin the emotes, by moving their faces is stunning, i'm very jealous of your patience ;) . Though maybe a variety of expressions could help? To show the diversity of dA's deviants. :)

Also, i know that when you use photoshop, you can't change the order of the layers, withing the animation. So the layer at the front. [The red?] Always has to be at the front. So i think that you've done a brilliant job making it appear as though it changes.

Overall this is a stunning emoticon. And i've suggested it for a DD ;) So good luck with that too!
What do you think?

I absolutely love this! Completely worthy/fitting for a DD especially for Fella's awesome Birthday.

I love the array of colors on the deviants, and I love how they don't just go up, they wiggle, they turn, and they twist. Although their expressions are very hardened, I can tell you already put so much work in at this point, expressions were at the bottom of the to do list.

Now I'm not sure if my computer is just lagging a tad behind, but Fellas motions seem just a bit robotic. Other than that, he is perfectly fitting of the Deviantart mascot, juggling a hanful of deviants.

Even though its a loop, this is one animation that just keeps you smiling, and doesn't get boring.
