I love the new smilies! So cute!
I hate to say anything negative at all about them, but I don't think the Moluccan too icon looks anything like an actual M2. Wrong color, and that bar on the crest...it's cute it just doesn't look quite right. I think it was an inaccurate MM2 at first. IMO it should look more like the sulphur-crested icon but with a very pale salmon pink body and a dark salmon crest.

Re: New smilies

I'll look into it

Can't even remember which one it is now. Made them a while ago.

They don't work on tappatalk so will have to be tomorrow as I'm at kids bday parties and stuff today.

Any better?

It's hard to do lot of detail or get exact colours as I'm compressing s very small files to save space

It looks much better! It might just be my monitor, but the pink still looks a little too fuschia and not salmon enough. However it is definitely recognizable as an M2 now. Sorry to nitpick, lol.

Re: New smilies

There's one more colour I can try lightening for the M2. I'll try it a bit later on. Due to the way I'm doing these I don't have the colour wheel I just have the presets and have to darken or lighten the whole images. Tis a bit fiddly lol.

{edit} how about this? I know it's still not quite right...



For some reason they aren't uploading quite the same a they show on my PC *sigh* oh well...I am just dabbling here. This is what they look like prior to upload (you can see change of colour on M2' better )
