Now that it's 2015, emoji have officially become just as much a part of our lives as memes, social media and Iggy Azalea. The miniature pictures that can convey a thousand words when you're texting/chatting with your friends and your bae are clearly taking over, and I've just discovered a site that takes the obsession to new heights.
Welcome to emoji.ink. It is going to fill your hours with glorious emoji-induced glee—the fun of drawing with emojis. Yes, you can now create your own ~art~ constructed purely out of emoji symbols. If I could, I would insert a heart-eyed emoji here, but, now that I have emoji.ink, I can do this:
(Okay, so maybe I'm not the best emoji artist, but you get the idea)
Here's a rundown of how the site works and how you can create your own emoji masterpieces.
First, type emoji.ink into your browser—you don't even need the "www" because this is 2015 and the internet is getting fancier.
You'll be confronted with an array of all the standard emojis. Now, select the one you want to use as your initial paint brush.
Once you've selected your emoji-brush, you'll get a blank canvas to work on. Remember MS Paint? (All the Photoshop experts roll their eyes.) It's kinda like that.
Now you can begin drawing whatever your heart desires. One MTV staffer spelled her name out in Turkey Legs:
Once you're done with your picture, you can click on the link on the left side of your screen to "Save Image" and download the creation.
You can also change the size of your emoji brush by using the tool down in the righthand corner.
And how do you draw with multiple emojis? Just press any key after you're done with whatever you're currently using, and you'll be transported back to the main screen to select a new one.
Happy drawing! And TGIF, amirite??
