More Smiley Faces

Since the smiley faces on my post "Smiley Face Game Markers" have been so popular, I made a few more. It's amazing how expressive a smiley face can be since there is so little to work with, just a yellow circle, eyes and a mouth. These were made in Adobe Illustrator. I like to keep them simple and as true as possible to Harvey Ross Ball's classic smiley face design.

Changing the eyes to half ovals gives the illusion of raised cheeks, creating an expression of delight or satisfaction.

Ah, yes!

Tilt the eyes to make a smiley face look up.

"Look at that!"

Ever wonder what a smiley face looks like from the side? Me either, but now you know.

  1. Every time we encounter failure and disappointments in life, we run to our friends first rather than to our parents maybe because we are more confident to tell everything to them.Our parent can also be our friend, but sometimes we distance ourselves to them because of fear which should not be in our mindset.
