:iconupdatedsignplz: At the request of several people, and to allow as many people the opportunity as possible, we have decided to extend the voting period for one week.  The new voting deadline is March 14, 2013.

:pointr: Kindly note there was also some questions as to some of the deviants listed in the newcomer category and the fact that their first emote was created in late 2012.  Due to the fact that the Emote Awards had an erratic timeframe before now (an uncertain date from December to December), we allowed those additional 2 nominations as they would have been in a window where they would have been excluded. Now that we have moved to a Jan 1 - Dec 31 timeframe, that should not be a problem in the future.





:spotlight-left: We'd like to welcome everyone to the 2012 Emote Awards. :spotlight-right:

First of all, we would like to thank everyone who took the time to make nominations. We were staggered at the number of people who participated!  Now, before we start, we will recap the voting process...

:star: Voting will run for 2 weeks. They will open on February 21, 2013 and close on March 7, 2013.

:star: Votes will be cast through note. Notes should be sent to EmoteWatch -- Please do not note Krissi or Mirz's personal accounts.

:star: You can only vote once per category.

:star: You cannot vote for yourself.

:star: In the spirit of sportsmanship, nominees are not allowed to offer any incentive to others to vote for them.  You may advertise that you have been nominated and encourage others to vote in the awards, but you can't tell them to vote for you, nor can you offer anything like points, or prizes, or anything of that nature to entice others to vote.

:star: In the case of a tie, there will be a special tie-breaker vote for a period of one-week.

:star: Winners will be announced within a week of the close of voting (or a tie-breaker round if there is one).  We will also announce the date of the special chat event at that time.

All right. Now on to the nominees!

PE: How to Make a Large EmoticonHow to Make a Large Emoticon

I have been asked many times how I make my big emoticons. How I shade it, dither it, etc, so I am going to make a step by step tutorial on how I make large emoticons.:D Even if you already know how to, you might find something useful in this.;) Be aware that I am using photoshop elements 3.0, so this technique can be preformed in almost any program that has layers and custom pencil brush sizes and or a hollow and filled circle tool. If your program doesn't have layers or adjustable circles of any kind (whether it be the pencil tool or the circle tool), you should be able to get around it somehow, but if you can't figure it out, I would recommend gimp. It works on Macs, Windows, or Linux computers. You can get a free download at gimp.org.:nod:
Start by making a hollow circle. The color of it should be a really dark shade of the color you want the emote to be. I'm making a blue emote, so

If you have a question, feel free to post and we will do our best to help you.

Good luck to all the nominees!
