it looks like a mustache , fade the nose in some other sprite, not similar to the yellow hair, then it will be perfect i think

I see it as highlights on her nose and chin rather than facial hair

I think those Twinsen smilies are too big. They would make the lines space bigger when used.

Notice those:

LOL!

We can definetly see a difference between the first one and the second one. It's like two line breaks are used there.

That's not what I'm concerned about. I care more for the esthetics and visuality of the posts.

well aesthetically speaking I say my smilies are still a step up despite sometimes increasing a line of text 11 extra pixels, theyre nicely made and display the emotion clearly

it's not a completely correct example because of the image inlining. The Twinsen smilies are 10 pixels taller adding 5px to the top and bottom of each line.

I think you should make the skin colour lighter, now they look way too tanned, I think the perfect skin colour would be like the Twinsen in your avatar has. Anyways they are sweet .
And I voted yes, we need new smilies, and theese are cool.

Nice, but I think they show less emotions than the current smilies. , for example, doesn't look very snobbish at all. In fact, it looks like he's smiling .

Perhaps the default text could get an increased line-height value so that the text won't be further apart whenever a smilie occurs. Instead, lines will always be a bit further apart, which could even improve readabilty of long texts.

The ones with new colours are much much better btw. Very well done.

I think it's a "sigh" emote. You might do a "sigh" emote tough, looking into a corner and breathing deep, but fast - once.
