Oodles o' Smileys

on: December 22, 2009, 11:23:52 pm
Hi, I'm back from my months of lurking.  :D
I whipped up a couple of smileys to replace the ugly ones on messenger, but I could really use some C+C as they have some obvious readability issues.



I appreciate the help in advance,
Jared

These are sweet! I don't see what you mean by readability issues, I could read each one instantly. The only thing I would change would be to have a border around each one. Doesn't have to be just a solid line either, look at the smileys on this forum.

Thanks for the reply, NaCI.  I took your suggestion even though I was trying to stick to 16x16.  I figured two more pixels wouldn't be the end of the world.



I also upped the saturation on the Caucasian faces.

These are pretty awesome. :) Readability is fine, I reckon; I recognised most of them right off the bat.

Size-wise, the MSN emotes are actually 19x19, so you're fine there. :p
