emoji review: cactus

some apple emojis look better bigger; this is not the case. strange spine composition and overuse of pillow shading, coloration feels a little off as well. 2/5, mostly for it’s #iconic profile in smaller size

google is trying something new with coloration and i can appreciate that. unfortunately, it feels a little drab here. the white stripes, while minimalistic, also throw me off. 2/5 would be stronger with a better color palette

now see??? THIS is what i’m talking about. bold colors, bold outline, simplified yet recognizable spines… i LOVE this. 100% the type of cactus emoji i can get behind. 5/5 masterfully done

all samsung emojis look like something you would find on a 2006-era messaging board, and the cactus is no different. boring coloration with uncreative black/white pillow shading. shape is off as well. 0/5 looks bad todd

now see, i really appreciate lg going out on a limb here having a prickly pear instead of a saguaro, but the execution is somewhat lackluster… again, an over-reliance on pillow shading, not enough spines, a little boring. i do like the color gradation, however. 3/5 creative concept execution needs work

a pretty good cactus! lovely coloration, iconic profile and minimalist design. the spines are lacking, but overall an emoji i would proudly incorporate into my conversations. 4/5 lovely but spines look like clothing stitches

oh man… nothing objectively bad about this jumping out at me, but still not one of my favorites… the colors feel boring i guess, also maybe the size/resolution is throwing me off. 2.5/5, i dont really like it but cant define why

ugh… hoo boy… i like the bright colors here but that’s where the list ends. poorly executed cell shading, exaggerated shape that looks shitty, DOTS instead of spines. recognizable as a cactus but only barely so. looks like a shiny fruit. 1/5 not representative of the plant

ugly. bad. gross colors, dots for spines syndrome, i hesitate to include it in my twitter bio. poorly done. 0/5 i expected more from you twitter

ok, not bad! again, the colors are not my favorite but this is a decent cactus. spines along the top look uncomfortably like cartoon hair but i can let it slide. 3.5/5 very decent design compared to others

again, not bad! the spines seem to be what trips everyone up, though. profile seems slightly off as well, but in relation to some other emojis this one gets the job done. 3/5 alright but try not to make it look like the cactus is wearing a pinstripe suit

i KNEW emojidex was going to be shitty but somehow i did not expect THIS. i hate it. would never use. -3/5 looks like a fucked up balloon

And when you go don’t look back, darling. Trust that there is more in this big beautiful World than tears and heartache. Trust that the lonely road will enrich your soul and strengthen your spirit. Don’t look back, because the World won’t wait for him to decide to love you and you don’t need to wait either.
