Random Emote Awesomeness
Inspired by ArtByCher's lovely "Random Acts of Kindness" gift, I have taken to honoring some of the outstanding dA emoticonists. Whether the emoticonist is heavily involved in the community, makes exceptional art that inspires other emoticonists, or is simply a kind deviant that helps and supports others, many of these individuals deserve a bit of additional recognition for their efforts. This award will be given out to 1-2 emoticonists a month as a special "thank you" for their work around the emoticon community. The emoticonist will be chosen by me, but may be recommended by other members of the community.
The final two badges for November 2011 go to and
I have long admired Kyramy Relatively new to the emote community, she has jumped right in, becoming active in a variety of groups, as well as making wonderful emotes. She has a positivity about her that is infectious. Her Community Spirit week, as well as her work on the emoticon teams, is definitely worth a mention.
BlissfullySarcastic is one of the most recognizable names in the community, and it's no wonder why. Her emoticons are amazing and her support of emoticonists, new and old, is well-known. She has hosted many contests and other projects to help motivate and unite the community. Not to mention, she's simply a sweet person, too.
Aside from those things, these emoticonists are being recognized for their work on the 2010 Secret Santa. Coordinating a project like that is not easy, yet they have been dedicated to the project, pushing hard to get others involved, and pairing everyone up in a timely manner. With their dedication, the hope is that the project is a roaring success. For that, they are truly awesome.
The special badge may only be displayed by Kyramy and BlissfullySarcastic Congratulations!
