Polycount Smilies Public Stampede Homepage|
Inspired by the original polysmilie: -and based on a crapload of smilies found everywhere.
All new skins for the 'polyblob'
I made these smilies so that we could have a 'designed' set for polycount's Message Boards.
Graphics at polycount, even such mundane things as our smilies, should not be taken from anywhere I feel. The kind of community we are demands that those things are our own creations, and they should be better than all the others too! - So that was what I tried to do ;)
One thing that bothered me with our old ones, was that they appeared different in size. This was because some of them had a very dark edge. This effect is not there with the new ones, they all look even in size.
Another problem was that some of the old smilies didn't display the 'emotion' well or you could hardly see what the thing was. I worked to make 'em clearer, funnier and have them 'emote' *at you.

|Unassigned Smilies: (They're dropped - *or they're new!)|
Remarks, explanations and attemps at evading responsibility
*11.20.02 Update: 145 :blab: added.
*12.04.01 Polycount's 2 year b-day and Smileyday! - They're active! WoooHoo!
*11.20.01 Update: 144 :vov: has been touched up.
*11.19.01 Update: Added three new smilies: 142 'YesYesYes!' and 143 'NoNoNo!'. Heh, I wonder why nobody thought of these before. I don't remember having seen 'em on any of the smiliesites I've been to.
*11.19.01 Second update: 141 and 144 has been touched up.
*11.18.01 Update: 141 'hmm' has been added to enhance and elaborate on 132 . Comes about coz' Sundance wanted Spock really. ;) - Harlequin did one that actually looks like Spock, this one is the polyblob trying to act like him.
*11.16.01 Update: poly112, 'big toothy grin' has been slightly touched up. poly140 'evil grin' has been added (this is an alternative to 123 ) - The new one is less similar to the devilgrin.
The 'green outline' set is in honour of the original polysmilie, icon60. The idea was to do a representation of the most basic plain text emoticons while preserving the look of the polysmilie. However, the outline smilies are dropped in favor of the 'green polyblob'.
poly115 is an attempt to make the 'Donald Duck' smilie look like it belongs in the set. Hard to do, coz' the original icon is a nonstandard 19x16 pixels, which explains why it can have so large eyes. This new one is the correct 15x15 size.
poly114b.gif - is a blue variant of poly114 by popular demand. (by at least two users, and noticeable ones too!) - What has been done to it is that the dark color along the edges has been lightened, so that the icon doesn't look smaller than the others, - gave room for a tooth more too. - However, green is beautiful, so poly114 is green unless 'blue supporters' send me personal nudiepics! - Ehh.., on pondering that a bit.. Don't do that, just tell me you prefer the green one.
A note of Caution! - The smilies will be removed from this homepage when they are finished. By which time they hopefully find a new home at polycount. This is by no means certain, and will only happen if they are good enough!
While they are here, I work on them and they may - will! - change appearance. So, if you use them in a ubb from this url, you risk that they are gone all of a sudden. That's if I don't get inspired to do a prank on you and exchange all of 'em with a pic of a naked butt! - hehehehe.....
