Some new emoji today:
Will add more flags on request.
Name suggestions for all of these are welcome :)
Will also remake them with blobcat graphics later.
Recreating the blobcats from the original source material .
Source material is Google’s Noto font: https://github.com/googlefonts/noto-emoji/blob/bf295c4/svg/emoji_u1f610.svg
Left: recreated blobcat from the original blob emoji source.
Right: the png I grabbed from mastodon.
In fairness to the right part: I did blow this up from 128px to 750px because I wanted some room to play with.
From here I’ll add a ghosty tail and start making them with flags
Introducing Queer Cats:
You can request other flags if you want
Introducing a few new friends:
@moiety The true formes of the ghosts from Pac-Man~
@moiety Well into this, I made a few custom ones based on existing blob cats but had to trace them all first >.< I'll be keeping an eye here, and let me know if you need a hand =p
@Shrigglepuss I can share the .sketch-file or .svg-file if you want. I’ll create a GitHub repo too when I have something to show for.
The previous ghosts are pretty crappy in terms of how I made them. So I wanted to do these right 🌟.
@moiety =D Keep me posted! Might be a good opportunity for me to finally learn how to use git too
@Elizafox is there consensus on what the flag is? I see one with a pi sign and one with an infinite sign.
@moiety I'm pretty sure the one most people use is the one
@moiety thank you!
@a_breakin_glass perhaps with community contributions, yes. The initial goal was to create a blobcat ghost with all the flags. Creating a blobcat along the way was inevitable. Adding all the flags to that was trivial.
I will create a github repo this week with the source for this stuff so that people can contribute .
@moiety brb going to the admin panel to adopt all these cats
@moiety !!!!!! we need these on queer.party!!!!
@moiety i'm definitely on the wrong instance
@ThatWallflower you’re always welcome here if you had wanted to join another instance
@moiety is there a repo with all of these?
@moiety Great! may I ask why did you use github? (I'm sorry I just get kinda triggered when I see someone using github)
@void it’s convenient for me. You don’t have to use it.
You can suggest new emoji on this thread if you want. And Mastodon has a handy “copy emoji”-function.
Is there something I’m missing?
@moiety nothing, just techbro bullshit (github is owned by Microsoft and is closed source/pretty capitalist)
What The Duck
@rick_777 oh I like that. Yes, I’ll work on that. Keep an eye on this thread or the github repo.
@rick_777 I have added all of hem

@moiety I made some more, if you are interested!
@kemonine since I only made those and not the whole set, no, but feel free to gather the ones I made with the other ones somewhere.
@kemonine sure! But that will take a while, since at the time I'm not sure of when I'll have time to use the computer again. ^^'
@kemonine @moiety here's the folder with what I made (a psd and pngs with two sizes): https://send.firefox.com/download/7f5d77974f58d929/#k9QkX1t2hWLKCdwdg5SxWA
