this is my entry for `CookiemagiK's contest :)
More about the contest here : [link]
the aim of this contest was to revamp this emoticon
I got alot of idea for this emoticon and it look alot different than the original one but i tried to keep the same idea as the original one a green emoticon is frustrated to be ignored by the other one and wonder how to get attention :) so i did choose to make his wondering with speech bubbles to show little action ( first : "hey!" text ,second : explode emoticon, third: punch action, , and a big ending scream because the green one get really annoyed to be ignored :aww: i hope you like it

Ok, so I must say that before we get anywhere with this, you are really, really good at pixel text work. Your emotes are also full of amazing bouncingness and are constantly moving.

Ok let's start off with the emotes themselves. I love the fact that you made them the same color as the original, and you do an excellent job with the shadows. The expressions are cute, but I personally don't like the eyes. I'm more of a very wide eyed-emote person :meow: But I like the shading, and the movement is very fluid, and the red on is very bouncy and stretchy, which is always good in an emote :meow:

Now let's move on with the whole idea of this emote. I must admit the very first time I looked at this emote I had no idea what was going on. But after watching it a few times, I got the idea. How the emote is imagining the whole thing is very original. I haven't seen anything like it.

How ever, the entire thing is very, very busy. As much as I love your text work, you did too much of it. The shading is very nice in the little bubble, but you really don't need to do the fading out with the hey, hey, heys. And there are a little too many flashes. With the imagining thing it's fine, but with the words it's a little unnecessary.

You also need to work on the mouth movement. If you just look at the mouth, all I can imagine him saying is "hap-ap" in a very shrill voice :| You also need to work on the facial expressions. When he hes screaming there needs to be more of anger in it, with some squinty eyes and stuff.

And all together, the emote moves to quickly. You need to exaggerate more on the giggle after the image of the red one all beaten up. The entire emote just needs to slow down a little bit.

Also, the DON'T YOU IGNORE ME doesn't line up. Just need a little more on that.

All together, this emote is really great with a lot of motion and business. The animation is fluid, and the shadows and text work are great, but it's too busy. It needs to slow down and stay on a subject for more than 70ms ;P
