-- ABOUT THE DEVIATION --
HOMI-FUCKING-GOD. :love:

I have been getting absolutely nowhere with my traditional art. :| I'm just so damn fed up at this point that I decided to try and dabble in other art forms! And this is my first ever animated emote. <3 I'm so damn fucking proud of myself. I've been sitting here, glued to the computer, for the past five hours trying to get this thing finished. ;~;' But I'm actually really proud of the results. More proud than I've been of one of my art pieces in a long time. I'm going to do some more experiments in animation and emoticons and then I'll move onto photography. Then photo-manipulations and then either vexel/vector or space art. Although ultimately, space art is my final goal seeing as it's my favorite art form ever. And thrown in all that will be CSS and maybe some traditional stuff if I can get some inspiration to do so.

So anyways... :eager:

This is going to be my emote character. She's called Stealycat. :giggle: She has funky blue glowing eyes and I'll probably give her a tail. I couldn't be bothered incorporating a tail into this piece -- it would be far too much work. .__. She has a buddy named Alphacat and you'll see her later on!

And the idea behind the emote... I am terrified of spiders (among many other things) so that's where this came from. And a big big big thank-you to the following people (because without you I couldn't have finished this!).

:bulletblack: `bad-blood and your Emote Shading Tutorial!
:bulletblack: `LeoLeonardo and your Animating in Imageready Tutorial!
:bulletblack: `CookiemagiK and your Running Tutorial!

Gosh I'm just so darn happy right now.

Please please please give me critiques! I want to be able to improve so I would definitely love some helpful tips! <3

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-04-05
Eek--A Spider by =Nekoori is absolutely excellent. But what makes it even more amazing is the fact that this is this deviant's very first try at emoting. The idea itself is really original, the animation pretty smooth and adorable, shading technique as well as facial expressions subtle but efficient. A promising work by a promising deviant. Can't wait to see more! ( Featured by AndyGassner )
:icondavecheesefish:
Overall, a very good emote! I can see elements based on work by other emoticonists around dA, and shows that a very good way to learn the basics is to look at others' work but making sure to adapt it to your own style to maintain originality and interest.

The shading on the cat emote and spider are done very well - subtle, but still enough to show the round shape of the emoticon. The animation is smoothly done, although the transition between sliding along and sitting still at the end is a little abrupt. It would look better with the emote slowing down smoothly rather than stopping suddenly at the end as it does now.

Apart from the stopping animation, I can see very little that needs any work to make it better here. Congratulations on making your first animated emote!

:iconwaluigi-prower:
For her very first emote, =Nekoori shows much promise as an emoticonist. Her sliding / walking technique is excellent, and the way the spider moves with the breeze made by the emote is an idea I would never have thought of doing. Plus, the idea itself is something original that I'm pretty sure no other emoticonist has done yet. All in all, the little details put into the emote is what makes it amazing.

As davecheesefish said, the only little tiny problem with it is the stopping of the emote, but it isn't a big enough problem to stop anyone from loving it.

Hopefully we will be able to see more emotes from her in the near future as she develops even more talent and technique for emotes.
