How to make Emotes for twitch.tv

Here is a good guide for you to follow on to making a emote for twitch.tv.  https://help.twitch.tv/customer/en/portal/articles/2348985-partner-emoticon-and-badge-guide

But let me break it down for you, first you need to make sure it is your own artwork, or if you commission another to make one for you.  Which there are a lot of awesome artists out there to do just that.

Step 1:

Come up with an idea, best ways for me to go about this is to think of what people like to use most.

For example, Love, Shy, Hype, Fail, Hey, R.I.P.

For twitch.tv as long as it is your artwork you can come up with emotes that has copyright like Mario, Zelda, sonic etc.

But some streamers find it better to not have any copyright material in the emotes so you can print them as a t-shirt/hoodie and merchandise them.

Step 2:

You will need a program to create the artwork.

Paid programs: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop.

Free programs: Inkscape, https://designer.io/#hero, https://vectr.com/.

Step 3: Make sure to get your size correct. On twitch.tv they have 3 sizes to save the emotes. 112×112, 56×56, 28×28.

 

 

Step 3:

Make sure to save the image as a .png format.

Step 4:

As of this writing, you can have Global emotes as a twitch affiliate or partner. Once you upload you have to wait for approval as an affiliate but partners I believe get instant approved.
