How to draw with emojis

The emoji art editor is a grid of emojis. You can select a new emoji from the (very large) list at the bottom of the editor and then click on the grid to place it. You can also click and drag as you might in a painting app.

Searching for emojis

The emoji palette includes a search field. This helps you to find the emoji you want quickly.

Emoji art settings

There are 2 settings for the emoji art editor. These only affect downloaded images, they will not be visible if you copy the emojis to your clipboard.

  1. Size - This is the size of the generated image. The rectangular images are perfect for using in the comic creator app.
  2. Color - The background colour for the generated image. The colour is previewed live.

Sharing emoji art

The app allows you to share your emoji art in 3 different ways.

  1. Share on Twitter - this will open a new window with the emoji art already inserted. This makes it really easy to share on social media.
  2. Download Image - You can download the art as pngs. This is great for saving an image long term, or for sticking it on websites like Instagram.
  3. Copy Art to Clipboard - This inserts the emojis, as text, into your clipboard. This means you can add the text to other social media platforms, or send them in emails, add them to documents. Anything you can think of.
  4. Copy Link to Clipboard - This copies the current url to your clipboard. The url updates as you draw an image so that anyone who visits that webpage will load the art you created. This makes it super easy to share your creations.

Why is the grid so small?

The size of the grid is chosen because it allows emoji art to be pasted inside Twitter. Twitter has strict character count limits, so making the artwork bigger would mean you can’t share it on Twitter.

If you create something awesome then send if over with information about you and, if it’s appropriate, I will add it to the gallery. Keep in mind that all art has to be family friendly, nothig rude, violent, or illegal will be considered.
