Emote Project: Building a Tower
Emote Project: Building a Tower
Project Status:
This project asks of you, the community, no matter how large or small your experience with making emotes, to make a simple, unanimated, emote according to the following description:
~An emote that appears to be holding another emote above it's head.
~All participants will be stacked in the order entered, so seeing as I entered first, I'll be at the very bottom, and the next person that enters, will be above mine, and the next that enters above that one, and so on.
[Last entrant]
[3rd entrant]
[2nd entrant]
[1st entrant]
At the very top of the "tower" I will most likely place the DA logo.
Here's a quick sample of what I'm asking you to do:

The white circle over the emote is not really mandatory, but whilst I'm doing the stacking process, it will make things easier for me if I know where to put the next emote if you show me how to fit yours in

Emote Project: Zombie Nation

Journal Entry:
Emote Project: Zombie Nation
Project status:
So, yes, from the title, I'm sure you can guess that this project is gonna be about those lovely, undead, creepy/crawly and somewhat decayed looking things we all know and love as zombies.
What I've constructed is a simple background, sorta like a diorama or a stage of some sorts, with a building on the far right and a street in front of it, where participating zombies and/or survivors will stage a huge battle. :P
I've submitted the "beta" version of what this looks like. Click the thumbnail to view the full version:

What I will do is extend the street as entries are added, so that it's almost like a never-ending mob of zombies allong a never-ending street. Hopefully you get what I mean. :P

Wow! What can I say - except of course a huge thankyou to Queen Liv! :glomp:

There I was happily just going about the usual - check the email, a quick browse on DA... and then I saw a big pile of messages waiting for me! :aww: I was rather surprised to say the least.

The only downside is that I'm just so damn busy with various projects at the moment that I haven't been able to spend more time on here, if only I'd started my DA addiction last year when I had a lot more free time! But I'll def make more time for this wonderful place :nod:

But anyhoo a big :hug: to everyone having a look and... :w00t:!!!
