First time I make an emoticon on Photoshop, as I can’t use Ulead Gif Animator and Paint on a Mac.

Initially, I was going to make a huge emoticon playing drums. But pixelling a drum kit that big? Too much effort. Enjoy an adorable couple, instead.

Colors of Music

In case you’re wondering, this is a part of an instrumental song of mine called “Broken Soul”, ignoring sharp notes.

My intention was to make the animation perfectly match with the duration of each note, but unfortunately I had to cheat at the end, making it last longer than the duration of the note, otherwise the loop would look choppy.

"Colors of Music by marcphx has had such an overwhelming response from the community. The animation is so fluid, and colourful. It’s brilliant."

"Why did you make a pixel art plushie Cthulhu?", might you ask me. My answer: I don’t know. I was listening to Metallica’s "The Call of Cthulhu" and made this. Don’t judge me.

Silly little quick emote. Came up with this idea while preparing dinner. Weird. Anyway, the blue emoticon is supposed to play a D chord, then a G and an A one.

So, this is my original character rage flipping Sinibug, Sinister-Starfeesh’s OC. First emoticon of 2012, after an emoticonless 2011.

Frame delay alternates between 0.08 and 0.07. I don’t remember why, though, but I suppose it was because I was trying to sync it up with a drum beat audio file.

The colors of the emoticons match with the colors of the Rock Band drum set.

This emoticon was going to be part of a pack of emoticons for a contest. Got too lazy to finish the pack. Typical.
