Another of Australia's weird yet wonderful animals is the echidna - specifically the Tachyglossus aculeatus, known as the short-beaked echidna.

I like the "mixing up" kolobok...and the animals are wonderful. The animated water looks very good. clapping.gif clapping.gif

Thank you - I think that water is always interesting to draw with koloboks... So is glass (and mirrors).

I'm always fascinating by how the exceptionally good artists that were here drawing kolobok-style emoticons have conveyed glass and water and so on. Those are the koloboks that inspired me.




I think that I forgot to upload my music box ballerina...

... and the Chinese kolobok with a classical Chinese topknot:

I was asked by a fellow forum member (a different forum) to create a Japanese-style kolobok emoticon:

(Perhaps I'll also re-use this Japanese kolobok in a more active way, wielding a samurai sword!)


Another idea also came to mind - the Dr Frankenstein experiment / the Modern Prometheus. (I always feel overwhelming sadness for the creature reanimated by Mary Shelley's Dr Frankeinstein. If he's a monster, he is so by man's design.) Anyway, here he is - the creature made by Frankenstein:

This is a light version of Aiwan's "dwarf" character. (I see it as a berserker with an axe!)

I think something must have gone wrong (in the fourth frame) when Aiwan uploaded his original...

I've also made a girl version. It tickles my funny bone to see a berserker girl kolobok complete with lipstick raising her axe threateningly.

Oh yes... that carousel involved quite a lot of work!


Here is a new kolobok - relaxing in front of a cheerfully blazing fire in the fireplace.

(It's so cold here at the moment. The winter chills inspired this kolobok.)

After a hiatus in making koloboks, here is a girl with lawnmower:

(I did not feel like creating any more for a while; I have been so full of grief because of my father's death.)

Hello Almirena.
I am a forum site manager and we'd love to see more work from you and the kolobok smiley series.
We could offer a modest retribution if we reach an agreement. We have periodical designing needs at our communities.
Please tell me of your thoughts.

Hello, pcasfer,

That is extraordinarily flattering.

I am nowhere near as skilled as many of the other "kolobokers" who created their koloboks/emoticons and posted them here. If your forum needs are not too onerous, I would be happy to make the occasional kolobok emoticon for you to use, and would do so without requiring any remuneration.

If your forum needs are more than that, and it ends up involving more time than I can easily spare*, we can talk about a payment situation. I do want to make it very clear that Aiwan is the absolute master of all things kolobok - the original maker and the inspiration for all other koloboks - so it would always be a good idea to acknowledge him as that progenitor.


*Some of the kolobok emoticons that I've made are very complicated and take quite a long time to create. An example is the carousel/merry-go-round - insanely tricky to make. Some are far less detailed and haven't been so taxing to make.

Thank you, Reny. It is a very difficult time for us, and I still find myself bursting into tears for no apparent reason sometimes... But I've got to be the strong one, especially for my mother.


Yesterday was Australia Day. In honour of it, here is a kolobok showing off one of the most iconic land features in the world - Uluru.
