    I'm not sure what it would denote though....
    When you've figured it out, and you've created the smilies, post here to let us know about it.
    Infinite complexity according to simple rules.

      You've got me curious about making smilies now, darn you to heck! Am checking tutorials... I know how to create the image itself, I think... just keeping the background transparent I'm not sure about... hmmm... Oh, the tutorial doesn't say! How mean.

      I presume by "Watchmen smiley" you mean the one with the bleeding eye? I would imagine that it denotes that you've just assassinated someone on the orders of Boss Smiley?

      Holy crap! I've just discovered that Neil Gaiman didn't create the character "Prez"...

      Sorry, this post is all over the place. Hail Arioch!

          I like the ruby throne, Dee - nice light effect. Way cool!

          _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
          _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
          _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

              Cheers. I don't think the good folk at Pixar have much to worry about, but it wasn't too bad for a first attempt.
