I think this is a better version for the defibrillation. The "Valentine cushion" heart was a nice clear image, and after a bit of fiddling around with a nice sinus rhythm on it, it seems to have worked out well.


To my embarrassment, I realised I had left an extra set of hands on the surgeon at one point!

A quick break from the circus set - to present the moon waxing and waning...

I'm not sure whether I should enlarge the black area; it looks a little odd as a black rectangle. Any ideas welcomed.

And with the moon actually kolobok-based: Attached Image

Thank you!


I have another kolobok for the circus set; however, it's almost 300K and I can't reduce the file size any further without compromising the quality of the kolobok presentation...

It's a circus high-wire trapeze act.


Is it possible to increase the maximum single upload size to 300K?

(In the meantime, I've linked the image.)

Aiwan, I had exactly the same thought about that heart. I have four other versions with different heart styles.

One of my attempts has the heart looking a little like a roast chicken - ai, ai, ai! Another looks a little like a Valentine cushion in the shape of a heart. The third... well, I can't help thinking that this heart looks a bit like a red Santa sack full of toys.

Anyway, I'll upload them here, and will be happy for any advice or for your suggestions about which version is most successful. (I also played around a little with the "shock".)

I will keep trying different heart ideas. And I think I'll go back to the first "shock" version as well.

I hope this kolobok conveys the story properly; it is a defibrillation (getting the heart re-started).

Thank you for the encouragement! <--- one of my favourite koloboks; it expresses acknowledging thanks so gracefully and gorgeously...

I'm currently working on a complicated kolobok which is truly like a mini-drama episode.

Thank you, Reny!

I was especially pleased with the Qantas aeroplane smilies.

(I'm not entirely happy with the mouths in the scales kolobok. I also don't like the look of the ribbons; they somehow look like a shower cap.)

I don't feel 100% happy about this Kolobok, but I do like the idea.

I don't know if you're aware that the national flag carrier airline of Australia (the third oldest airline in the world) is Qantas Airways. Qantas aeroplanes are instantly recognisable to any Australian, with the red and white colouring and the distinctive kangaroo design on the tail.

Here are the boy Kolobok and girl Kolobok Qantas Airbus aeroplanes.

I did not know about your birthday, so this is VERY belated.

Very many happy returns, Aiwan.

New - a gong. (The poor kolobok probably has his brains scrambled by the repeated whacking and swinging...)

Aiwan, I'm sorry to hear that! I hope that whatever the problem is can be sorted out soon. (Is it something to do with the version of PHP on the server? Or the permission settings for the folder?)
