Some time in last February I got letter from ICQ ltd. manager with question about a possibility of using my works. I answered, but not got more letters. I thought they just forgot about it. But couple of month ago I got a letter from them again. This letter was sent by a girl with good russian and I could understand everything. ICQ ltd. wanted to use all my ready works in their program, and to get exclusive rights for all of them.
Of course it would get grave consequences for all permits, agreements, contracts etc. That is why I decided to drow for ICQ ltd. absolutely new emotions. koloboks will stay koloboks, but they will look a little different. By starting I wanted to remake my ready works, but these koloboks are larger on 1 pixel and darker. The difference at 1 pixel changed everything: all works have been made from beginning, from first dot till animation.
New version ICQ with these koloboks will come out at this autumn. The progress of this series and our relations with ICQ, the future will show and of course it depend from your opinion too. If everything will be well, then there will be new galleries with these koloboks. Also in my plans to make GDK graphic set for emotion creation of this format.
But now its only plans. For now the ICQ have not made a place for feedback at their site. So you can write your opinion and wishes at my forum. ICQ managers promised to visit us regularly. Also I want to notice due to ICQ request, these smileys are not optimised for web. Probably they will lose weight through the time, but now we have them such as they are.
One more notice: all rights for using koloboks of this format in Instant Messengers like ICQ, MSN, QiP, Miranda belong to ICQ ltd. For other programs or projects: there is a possibility to get permission after co-ordination all questions with me. Simple users for private using can take them without asking, as always.
