0.3.0 sketches

A medium gray area with some black text. On the top right, there is bold text that says 'お前お殺す!Testy test test', on the left there are 3 rows of text. (1) Three chunks of text in a row in condensed, normal and wide fonts, and they say 'Condensed', 'Normal' and 'Thicc' respectively. (2), written notes that points to somewhere off to the left side of the picture and says 'This approach', (3) '1234567890'.

Endless, endless testing.

 

0.3.0 was partly a new emoji update, but also just trying to tie up more loose ends for the future. I wanted to be super-satisfied with various core elements of the aesthetic and design philosophy so I could move on with bigger changes and more new emoji without feeling like I have things left behind or unresolved design issues.

It also means that updating Telegram sticker sets and merch would be easier because existing designs won’t keep continually changing from version to version.

 

I was not prepared for how many sketches I had to publish for this.

Housekeeping

Hey, I’m going to break away from normal emoji release schedule for a short while to do a few things that need to be done, both with the project and personally.

Mutant Standard 0.2.4 Sketches

Here are all the sketches from 0.2.4, and a very long commentary. I am now making notes as I’m making the emoji, so giving you commentary is more efficient more detailed, and less scary to post at the end of a version because I have all the content already available.

Remember, sketch file names are just the date they were begun, so there will be disjointedness from file to file. Enjoy!

0.2.3 sketches

The sketch progression for the shark emoji

Here are the sketches behind the emoji in 0.2.3 and some of my commentary on how they went for this version.

I think from now on, I will be batching the sketch posts to every few versions. It just works out easier for me to do it this way.

Remember, the dates on each sketch is simply the start date, not the end date; I can be picking at an emoji sketch for months before I actually release that particular emoji.

Enjoy!~
