Awesome! Though, it's better if the lighter colour is on top, since that's where the source of light usually is. :)

Hmm. well, you can either do it by hand (either from inner part of the emoticon with a light tone to outer with a dark tone, or start from the outer) or using a gradient.

I'm sorry, it's been a long time since I've done this thing, I'll try to make another one. :)

How do you get your background all 'checkery' like that for making the base of the emote?

oh, the transparency?

You right click the layer you want transparent, then click Add Alpha Channel, then slect the white, then press delete.

hope that helped! xD

welcomes! also, there's another way to shade an emoticon and it's WAAY better than gradients, but it'd be a pain in the butt to do with an emoticon as big as the one in your avatar...
