Emoticons (aka smileys) are little pictures created from plain text. Larger pictures created from plain text falls into the category of ASCII Art. The older emoticons were right-handed (EG: :-), smile), but there are left-handed emoticons (EG: <3, heart), verticons (EG: o/, waving), etc. The older emoticons are ASCII, but there are also emoticons involving non-ASCII characters, esp. in Japanese. Note that I have set the code font on this page to the traditional Courier.
