While waiting on an edit to today's DRS Highlights post to finish,  so it wont get blocked on YouTube, I took some emotes I sketched out on the tablet this morning and threw some color mock-ups on them. I think there are some promising ones in this bunch. Which ones do you like? I'm working to update all of the sub and bttv emotes on the channel for the new year. Some current ones will stay as they are, others will be updated to stay in line with my current style. Here's some ideas I have sketch mock-ups on so far. 

It looks like that edited DRS Highlight video has finished rendering/ saving out so I'm going to try and upload to ewYouTube again. Look for that to go live this evening! 

Sketched on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 with spen and put together/ slapped some colors on in Inkscape on the PC. 

Update: 1/13/19 - I'm trying to push for new ideas and emotes that I haven't thought of before. Trying to come up with new versions of existing favorites as well as push for new and original combinations that would work really well. Here's where I've ended up for now. I've taken the emotes above, reworked a few and even added a bunch more. Now I have about 35 different emotes and want to keep pushing. An old graphics teacher of mine used to say thumbnail 100 ideas so that you work out all the cliches and start reaching for bold new and original ones. I don't know if I'll do 100 but I'm having fun with it. Maybe 50? Here's the 35 I have for now. Some obviously wont make it. Some will be saved for some other time. This whole exercise also does not include holiday related variations and items. This is simply exploring everyday use emotes on my twitch channel. I only have 3 sub emote spots and 25 bttv emote spots though. So obviously after I feel like I've explored all my options, I will pick the best ones to use/finish. Some aren't great or practical but I want to hit all the possibilities.
