MenInASuitcase first began creating emotes after finding a French tutorial on how to create smileys. Shortly afterwards, he discovered the deviantART community. He was intrigued by emoticons and began to study the work of other emoticonists. In time, he started creating them on his own.[1]

Smiley Offerings

Faby's deviantART gallery sports over 160 animated emotes, 17 static, and 10 pack and large format. There are even more creations in his personal collection. MISC estimates he has created over 250 emoticons in his career. His emoticon offerings range from small chat-friendly graphics to intricate emote-art creations sporting colorful backgrounds and complex animations.

Smiley Style

MISC is well know for his intricate and large pixel-art canvases. His proficiency in pixel-art shows in the attention to detail. Faby enjoys incorporating movement into his emotes, particularly bouncing. He likes to try different things, including different shading styles. One of the features which has become a trademark of sorts is his elaborate pixelling of hair.[1]
