Yesterday night, before I went to sleep, I had my usual time that I just lay in bed and think about everything while my mind drifts off into things. And it was, in that moment, I gained inspiration for the forum smileys you see before you, in this pack. It was an idea so magnificent, so simple, and yet so brilliant in my mind that I nearly wept in the brilliance of this idea. A concept so simple, an idea that only takes a couple minutes to make, but (as far as I believe) matches the theme and blocky style of Minecraft so well, and doesn't fall into such a generic decor that it blew my mind. Today, I woke up and worked on these smileys.
Very cool. This is pretty much what I was hoping for myself (Too much to do otherwise I would have done it myself at some point. Also, I was considering yellow backgrounds, although I think I like this better)
A few thoughts, though. I think the Surprise faces should have their eyebrows going up, in a _--- ---_ sort of way, and the regular surprise face should maybe have a circular mouth instead of square.
Finally, the flirting smilie could use a few dots next to the right eye, as if they were eye wrinkles or something, just to emphasize that that eye is in fact closed (and not just lazy)
