Hiii, it's finally done! I wrote a tutorial on how I go about creating emotes and other types of small art, including some things to think about, tips and tricks, and a "cheat sheet" for Discord, Twitch, and Mixer emote sizes and chat colours.

I hope you like it! Please let me know if you have any feedback, I'd love to improve this tutorial if I can!

@dona Great job. I really like the additional pixel step, really helps with clarity.

@FimbulK Thank you! I really feel like the last step is crucial, I see so many artists make beautiful emotes that just... don't work when downscaled x-x Most websites ask you to upload separate files for each size, so why not take advantage of that? :D /ramble

@dona Recently I spent some time on making my comic emotes after I saw your tutorial. I had great fun, this is what I made so far:

@Ypsilenna Ahhhhh oh my gosh! I am so happy the tutorial inspired you to create these, they look wonderful! ♥♥♥

@dona Thank you, I'm planning to make more soon :D
I sent this tutorial to my friends :)

@Ypsilenna I'm glad! I hope you and your friends have fun making emojis!
