An icon (almost always a circle) used to represent an emotion; an advanced smily face.
Only pixel emoticons are allowed in that section of deviantART.

Emotion Icon.
A smiley face used to show emotion. Doesn't necessarily have to be a face, as MSN Messenger uses other things as well.
The best emoticons are on DeviantArt.
:D - Very Happy
:) - Happy
:( - Sad
:P - Sticking tongue out
and my favorite...
^o) - MSN's raised eyebrow emoticon... (the "what the crap?" look)
