    I guess i'm out of the running for guessing who/what that is. I really hope someone surprises us and knows all about it, haha.

    I'm probably the only one here who does. But I'm sure you will soon.

    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Well i sort of know who/what it is from our discussion(s) about it, that's why I'm disqualified from guessing or impressing you

    Very experimental smiley I whipped up earlier today in around twenty minutes.



    It's based on an expression from the Outlaw Star manga. I'm not sure whether a manga smiley set is worth pursuing. I mean, the manga is really important right now so it's not like it doesn't deserve recognition. The characters in the manga are very expressive. You can use a more general template for the anime's art style and a set of expressions for all anime smilies, but with the manga, Takehiko Ito probably drew Gene in a hundred different ways!

    So it's unclear what a general manga smile would look like. This is based on a smirk. You might notice that it imitates the dot b/w shading style found in manga by using a technique called dithering. It doesn't work that great but it was worth a try.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Finally added a smiley I've wanted to add for years, which sounds kinda stupid because it's not that different from the following grin:

    This new amazing smiley is "Ecks Dee"! You remember how everyone used to write the two characters as an emoticon a decade ago? Well, remnants of that exist on OSN from the Outlaw Star UK days. You see, back in the olden days the forum was a lot more basic and lacked Outlaw Star smilies, but it did have a default set and people happened to particularly like Ecks Dee graphic. (Yes, I'm typing it that way because posting the actual characters will create the smiley.)





    I know it sounds stupid that I waited a long time before doing this. It looks simple, but honestly it's difficult to make the "X" stand out. I tried various shading methods and this is the best I've come up with. Seriously, I'm stumped. I can't make it bolder without totally fucking it up. Guess it'll do!


    I've been working on a couple of smilies today. I've had a stomach bug for a few days now. I'll spare you the details but it's been a way to pass time for now. I've started working on a "laughing Gene" animated smiley. I'm not sure how that'll turn out, but here's hoping. Next up will probably be Hanmyo. I've already drawn the basic smile so that's the hard part done. Maybe Hilda after that.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Hey Gene, did you ever find out that Cowboy Bebop is getting a Netflix series?!



    Yay, it works. For this, use "lmao" in colons or the smiley menu.

    Hanmyo set completed... for the time being, anyway. Honestly I'm not completely satisfied. She was certainly one of the trickiest. It's mostly due to the child proportions which is something I had to tackle with Jim. If anyone ever wants to improve Hanmyo, be my guest. Hanmyo also has the same issue as Melfina: dark hair isn't as visible on a darker website. You can pretend it's there. Here ya go anyway:

    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
