: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:

Thank you! :icongwomp:

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

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:

No, none of that. It's not an internet program. You download it from the internet (for free) and install it on your hard drive.
It's too large of a file to run online. :nod:
Here's a screenshot: [link]
Again, completely on hard drive.

And I've had moments like that, I know what you mean. :ashamed:

Is it a DESKTOP program like Adobe?
I'm REALLY interested....but MY husband is very SKEPTICAL. I'm SURE that he would approve if KNEW how it would benefit him in his video making.
DAMN! I WISH I had MORE information about it!
If THATS the program THAT everyone uses I'm SURE my stuff would LOOK 100% better....
Right NOW all I have are CLASSIC line drawings on OLDSKOOL paper & SOMETIMES I use WINDOWS PAINT to draw & color.....IF I HAVE the patience and motivation!
.....What's the website's http so that I could go there?

Yep, Desktop like Adobe. :)

Trust me, it's a good program.
I wouldn't recommend it if it wasn't.
You can't use it to make videos (GIFs not Vids) but if he has to edit photos for his videos, this is the program. ;)
:nod: It's is THAT program THAT all the people who can't afford $700 for actual Photoshop!

You can use it just like Photoshop. You can edit, draw, create lineart, manipulate, color and everything in between. :D

And it works out MUCH better than Paint.

Sure, [link] - Gimp.org
The most current version for download is 2.6.11 [link] which is what I use.

Yeah, the vast majority of it was spent trying to get the colors right. :O_o:
Plus the time's also been scattered over about four days, so it really didn't seem like all that long.

And no, it' doesn't.

Good God, I can't imagine trying to make that into an animated GIF. :faint:
