smileys from scratch

hi guys!

this is my 1st topic for dzygn.com members, i want to know if anyone from this pixel industry knows any special sofware for creating, designing, animating, customizing "smileys" or "emoticons".

I recd an enquiry from a friend of mine to do around 300 smileys..... they will be providing the static gifs and using that as reference we have to give the motion to that smileys....

the major inspiration for me is the yahoo smileys, including the static ones.. which shows the real expressions on each smileys....

i find good and sweet smileys here in this forum tooo

Can anyone guide me on how to do these smileys with any easy tools or is thr any kinda procedure to follow this? i m looking for animated smileys.

hi hitesh,

as far as i'm aware, there is no special sw for smileys creation....you can do them in photoshop and animate in imageready or just do them straight from imageready...

here's a site to give u reference on hundreds of animation...u can see how some effects are done and such..
http://www.mysmilies.com/

might also wanna chekc out http://download.com to see if they got any smiley-making application....

welcome to dz

There are also heaps of neat applications and makers "out there", like these:
http://www.geocities.com/laithie2000/index.html (download standalone application to run on your own pc, only "weakness" is that images are saved as bmp and have to be cropped later on)
http://christian.net/smileygenerator

- but then, they wouldn't be "yours", if you kwim.. *shrugs*
