It was my first time making Cheermotes, and this is the result! Rifkin of BaseTrade, Starcraft commentator fame desired a very retro pixel style. Each Cheermote concept was his requested content. I tried to maintain the pixel vibe, but realized pure pixel art might not read well for the intended application, so I used a hybrid of pixel animations (produced in photoshop) and motion graphics (using Animate CC, formerly Flash). I feel the results turned out well.
Twitch emoticons I’ve been working on today to submit to Kripp. Any feedback is appreciated.
