In part two of this add-on, you’ll draw and program your own emoticons. If you haven’tdone part one, close this video and watch the video for part one first.
To start, create a copy of the blank thought bubble. Click the costumes tab. Right clickthe blank thought bubble, and select duplicate. Think about which emotions to show in yourproject. Is there an emoticon that you wanted to use that didn’t already exist in thisproject? Once you have an idea for what you’ll create, check out the different tools available.
The rectangle and ellipse tools draw shapes. The “color a shape” tool fills shapeswith color. You can even draw freehand with the pencil tool. This slider will change thewidth of lines, and the color palette allows you to change color.
If you make a mistake, don’t worry! The “undo” button will take you back one stepeach time you click it. If you want to alter any of the shapes thatyou’ve made, use the “reshape” tool, and drag the points on the line.
Once you create an emoticon, give the costume a name.
Then, program it to show just like you did in part one. Add a “switch costume” block,and select the new costume name. Switch to the android sprite, add a “broadcast”block, and create a message for that costume change. Then, add a “when I receive” blockwith the name of that message to the “switch costume” block.
Once you have programmed it, try it out. Great! Now, it’s your turn:Duplicate the blank thought bubble sprite, and create an emoticon in it.
Program the costume to show using “switch costume,” “when I receive,” and “broadcast”blocks.
