In the absence of any other reply after three days...

Those references are likely the best you're going to get. Many original 
images came from Apple and Google, and some from Japanese telcos, but 
it's important to reiterate -- possibly to the Twitter group as well --  
that there are no "standard" or "official" (by which I mean normative) 
glyphs for emoji or any other characters. Any rendering that maintains 
the basic identity of the character is fine.
