Dune Emoticons

Start topics here about Dune that are not bloody likely to be screwed with by me.

Dune Emoticons

Postby Himachil » Sun Feb 03, 2008 5:56 pm

Just thought I'd contribute a couple of smilies I worked up in Photoshop and ImageReady a few months back.

Enjoy, and feel free to use (and abuse...)

Shield

Harvester:

Jihad 'thopter

Landsraad diplomacy

And that, children, is how the little bunny rabbit got his fluffy white tail.

That's awesome!

Now you've got me thinking: what would be some other useful Dune emoticons? How about....

A Fremen face with glowing blue eyes.

Someone getting their water spilled via crysknife.

A worm bursting out of the sand and swallowing someone.

A Mentat doing some heavy mental computation.

I only wish I had the skills to make some of these myself.

A sandworm swallowing a smiley would be great :)

It's a bit rushed (read slapdash), but I finally got round to it...

Good work again. It doesn't look rushed here, I like the starkness and crisp lines you've given it. Sometimes less is more.
Look, I'm not much good at big speeches, and I know I haven't always been an easy guy to get on with, and I know, that given the choice, I wouldn't have chosen you as friends, but I just want to say, that over the years, I have come to regard you as people I met.

We appreciate it Freak Z. I just want to make sure you're properly thanked, cause I know we tend to pester. But we have only the best of intentions :)
