those are one of the best emotions I have seen. You should keep making them.

To Banjo: If you don’t have any feedback then insulting others, I advise you to shut up.

WeirdEars, if you’re going to spend an amount of time creating something, spend a decent amount on it till it looks good… everything you do (weather it be brickfilms or a job in MSpaint), you rush, and it shows.

when I was first designing the mini-fig emoticons (now referred to as “Blunicons” by some, which is innaccurate, but has a certain “transformers cool” sound about it) I started with a photograph of a real mini-fig head too, infact, probably the same one WeirdEars is using, taken from the mini-fig head database someone has been collecting on brickshelf. (I’d find the link, but I’m lazy).
The reason I gave up and drew up my own “blank” from scratch is that the photo of the real head is FAR too tonal for pixel art to EVER look “normal” on it, pixel art is about clean, sharp, defined lines, the “real world” is too of tonal variation, the result of mixing the two can be cleary seen in WeirdEars’s “realistic” emoticons, you can see “seams”, patches and the stark, distracting contrast of the solid black lines drawn on the blank. it looks horrible.

*pet peeve rant, ON*
an now a note for some of the other people that have been trying their hand at making some mini-fig emot’s … cutting out the face from an existing emoticon and sticking it onto a lego face blank, is NOT a good way to do it, more often than not the face details don’t fit on the head properly, and don’t look “lego-y” at all, it ends up looking like a regular smiley deformed, rather than something you might actually find in your lego pile, whch is what I try to aim for in the look of mine.
also taking credit for “being creative” by using this cut and paste method is decieptful and dishonest, so don’t be cheep, use some imagination, if you can’t create originally and be imaginative, you’re in the wrong place.
