Oh I misunerstood you, anyway I still agree with Modanung, I like the way they are now, even though this one could be a nice and innovative idea which should not be discarded, I'll keep evaluating it...

I don't want people to spam my chatwindow with truckloads of smilies.
I don't mind them having a maximum of one smiley floating above their head though.

I think it would work best if the emotion icon was only sent with a chat message and not by itself. Theoretically, it wouldn't take any additional space in the chat window since it would appear next to the message.

It could also be regulated by all of the standard chat functionality such as time between broadcasts and other anti-spam techniques.

There could also be a checkbox to turn this feature on/off.

I think it will cause people to send a lot of single character messages just to show an emoticon.

Ok the contest is over. We have no winners though but Modanung will probably continue to work on his smilies set when not doing other tasks.

Thank you anyway for ideas provided

thinking in particular at those you can find in anime:

and many others such an beating heart, broken heart, waterfalls when crying, black smoke and whatever you can think on
awesome idea ^_^
one could easily do that, too, simply by increasing the emoticon size (and subsequently use only parts of it) so it partly overlaps the player, like so:

we'd want animated images then, to let the sweat drop flow down a few px etc

To be honest, i've played games with both and it doesn't really matter. What's important is that you key in on the emotion and really get the player to identify with it. Everything else is a footnote of a footnote at best.

Just posting the latest update:

Added some smilies and I changed the base sphere, they're all more spherish now.

If i may:
Bottom right, the confused one. Try making his mouth a smaller version of the mouth of the one above it (minus the tongue, of course). And if you're looking for emotion ideas, all the ones like O_o are great inspiration. i'd suggest one with the smiley narrowing his eyes at the player in scorn.

It was meant as a frightened/schocked smiley... the confused one is still to come.

This one is for "WHAAA, GIANT SLIMEY MONSTER!!!" and "WHAT?! You sold the heavy armor you borrowed from me for 50 GP?!?!"

But ofcourse you may. ;)
