Krissi how would i go about suggesting a DD?

:iconkrissi001: Jan 8, 2012, 10:10 AM
You have to send a note to the appropriate Community Volunteer (with the title "DD suggestion") in the note you include the thumbnail of the Deviation and why you think that it should be featured :hug:
ok... i really really dislike the way i look... so i wanna do a vote...

10 is love at first sight.
5 is about average.
and 1 is really hate that face.

10 forever and always. every day that the sun shines and when it rains. I will forever always be there for you. if only I knew you sooner so that I could hold you and tell you I love you. that your never alone. no matter what storms may come even if the sun never shines again I will be there holding you and loving you. Ive seen you in photos and seen you on the streets I am sure..if only i knew you then like I know you now. your tears wouldn't fall into empty bed sheets..but I would be there to wipe them away. I love you forever and always.
hey, synful, almost all my old groups seem to have died out, what are some good emote groups i could join?

:iconsynfull: Jul 17, 2012, 4:06 AM
It depends what sort of group you are interested in. #Emoticiety is one of the oldest and most popular feature groups, #Emotication is a useful resource group, and #EmoticonOpus is a fun contest group.

You can find a list of most emote groups here, separated by category:…
you just make it look so easy, do you have a better way to animate?

:iconkrissi001: Nov 27, 2012, 8:54 AM
The only program I use is Photoshop cs4. I start with a black Emote and then I copy the layer and add something more to it, while i use the previous layer as a reference to see where I have to add or remove pixels. And I can preview the animation within the program. I work on it till it looks smooth to me.
thanks for commenting, even at all, i don't usually get comments, no one cares to critique on anything i do, ... even though i ask so many people...

:iconchli: Jan 16, 2013, 3:37 PM
I understand.

If you want more comments you could always join those critiquing groups. If you critique someone elses piece they'll do the same for you. Also, people are more inclined to comment when they see that you comment back. On some of your pieces I saw that you didn't reply. `Mirz123 posted a poll about artists not replying to comments. I looked all over for it, but sadly I couldn't find it. She might have removed it, I don't know :shrug:. But either way, everyone said that they commented more if they knew that the artist would get back to them, sooner or later.
do you happen to have a better way of animating, then simply copy and paste a million times?

:iconpix3m: Jun 16, 2013, 2:55 PM
Graphicsgale is what I use, though it is mostly the same copying and pasting. You get a better sense of how your animation looks in practice though.

I would not use MSpaint though, it doesn't have keyboard shortcuts so evry time you need to change tools, you have to move your mouse.

There are other ways to animate that doesn't require you to draw frame-by-frame. However, the mediums you want for that are vector, and 3D.


... i favorite a lot of very sweet pictures...

Do not send me your points until my work has been completed if you are commissioning me.

Points given prematurely will not be sent back.

I will show you my work in a way so that you will not be able to steal it, at least, steal it with good quality, so don't try to skimp me either.
