With all acknowledgements to the original creator (Dr Diesel, I believe?), here is a Girl version which took its inspiration from the Happy New Year kolobok.

Thank you smile.gif The girls will be happy. wink.gif

Almirena.... really nice yahoo.gif

I am glad to add to the "Girls' Gallery" of Koloboks...!

I've a few more here - with all acknowledgement to their respective original inspirers:

<-- Girl examining the heavens through telescope
<-- Girl version of the "facepalm"
<-- Girl composer (or conductor) fixing wrong note

Posted by: Aiwan Jan 11 2018, 05:39 PM

There was some problem with adding works to the gallery. sad.gif

Posted by: Almirena Jan 13 2018, 08:07 PM

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?)

<-- A girl physicist; all acknowledgement to Laie who created the wonderful original on which this is based (Einstein).
<-- Girl version of the Shakespeare kolobok (or poet or writer of any sort).
<-- Phlebotomist / Venepuncturist.
<-- It always struck me that the ideal way to present a kolobok on a magic carpet would be with the kolobok wearing a turban...

He is added to the server, but not to the gallery. Our gallery shows images from the database.

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


Posted by: Aiwan Mar 16 2018, 07:18 AM

I think you need to work on the smile. It's bad when the meaning needs to be described in words. wink.gif

Posted by: Almirena Mar 16 2018, 01:48 PM

You're right; I'm hampered by my lack of drawing skill, I admit.

Hopefully this is better.



Here is an atom with electrons whizzing around:

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.

Good job good.gif

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

Melon ball.

Girl version of Champagne Drinking:


Cellist (orchestral/classical cello) - with all acknowledgements to Laie's original jazz bass.


Posted by: Reny May 22 2018, 06:41 PM

Nice, Almirena... clapping.gif I really like the Champagne drinking girl and the airoplane smilies.

Posted by: Almirena May 29 2018, 08:35 PM

Thank you, Reny!

I was especially pleased with the Qantas aeroplane smilies.


A few more:

Girl version of falling asleep in an armchair:
Girl version of "It's HIS/HER fault!":
Girl version of Sherlock Holmes / private investigator:
Scales (also could be used for Libra):

(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.)

Posted by: Almirena May 30 2018, 11:34 AM

2nd version of the scales / Libra:

Nice new smileys, Almirena good.gif I really like your girl versions. And the traffic lights! yahoo.gif

Posted by: Almirena Jun 18 2018, 11:11 AM

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.

Posted by: Almirena Jun 19 2018, 12:40 AM

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

Posted by: Aiwan Jun 20 2018, 06:04 AM

Хорошая работа! Но на будущее, я бы посоветовал избегать сложных мелких рисунков в смайлах. Это я говорю про сердце, например. Его можно обозначить схематично и это будет правильней с точки зрения стилистики и реализации задуманного. Ждем новых работ.

Good job! But for the future, I would advise you to avoid complex small drawings in smileys. I'm talking about the heart, for example. It can be designated schematically and it will be more correct from the point of view of stylistics and realization of the conceived. We are waiting for new works.

Posted by: Almirena Jun 20 2018, 06:58 PM

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.

Posted by: Almirena Jun 23 2018, 02:39 AM

In the meantime, I think I will do a circus set.








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.




Posted by: Reny Jun 23 2018, 09:54 AM

Yes, the heart is much better now. clapping.gif

And such a nice circus set yahoo.gif

(Also Aiwan's incredibly touching weeping girl in gaol, if you do not mind, Aiwan... I think that girl kolobok is outstanding in its verisimilitude.):

More for the circus set...

Circus elephant rearing up.

Circus lion jumping through fiery hoop.

Of course I do not mind smile.gif Draw if you like it. wink.gif

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.)




Larger / longer version:

Posted by: Almirena Jul 12 2018, 09:13 PM

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.

Version 2: Waxing and waning moon.

And with the moon actually kolobok-based:

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