:bulletred::bulletyellow::bulletgreen: My first shot at an emote scene. :bulletgreen::bulletyellow::bulletred:

All this week I've been wanting to do small, intricate work that didn't require me trying (and failing) to draw something small in GIMP. So when I stumbled upon `Mirz123's Emoticon Lane Project, which came with it's own house template by the way, I was thrilled.
I don't know if she has the space to include mine in her project but I had fun completing it anyways. Plus it's scratched the artistic itch that's been bugging me. :)
I had originally thought to do something similar to the Norman Rockwell classic America, but then decided to create something more realistic.
I know my emotes expressions are a bit off (again, I usually don't create emotes) so let's go through them shall we?

:bulletblue: Big Blue (Dad) is tired from blowing up the kiddy pool. As usual no one's swimming.
:bulletwhite: Little Blue has noticed the family has a visitor.
And he's trippin'.
:bulletpink: Mom's noticed Lil' Blue's behavior and is wondering what's up with her kid.
:bulletred: To the right, Sinister Red is sitting in the bushes being all sinister.
:bulletyellow: The tween queens are enjoying a nice day tanning on the lawn.
:bulletgreen: Little Lime is having a blast pretending he's Superman.
Or maybe he's just hyperactive. :O_o:

:bulletblack: Black Cat fail in the window.
:bulletorange: WHERE'S WALDO? :la:

In total about 12 - 15 hours work. :faint:

P.S. New manipulation out this Thursday! :la:
Taking the night off but will be working on it tomorrow for sure.
Any suggestions or inspiration by the way? :O_o:

:iconimthinkingplz:BTW What is "GIMP"? A program? Software?
Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you! :icongwomp:

GIMP is essentially the free version of Photoshop.
It's what I use for EVERYTHING! :nod:

Can you create EMOTICON gifs too????
Do you have to download it from the inernet? Or buy the software to install?
Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep, if it's an image file, you can create it. :D

And NO, it's completely free!
There is no way I could afford it.
You do have to download and install it but it's worth it really. :meow:
