I would like to see your koloboks. I had a vague memory that the boomerang kolobok was one of yours, but I have double-checked and realise that it's DrDiesel's work.

Yep. The boomerang was DrD's work.

I don't even know where my smileys ARE anymore. I know I posted a few on here, and a few on the (now deleted) SmileyGenerator forums. I probably have some scattered across a few of my old backups too, but they are certainly not all in the one place. Some of them I've probably lost for good.

Oh no!

When I was in my first year at uni, I had some unpublished manuscripts on a computer which was misbehaving. While I was out of the house, my father called a so-called computer technician who decided that the only fix was to reformat the hard drive... I lost writings and some other files that could not be retrieved, even though I ended up paying a data recovery company. (They retrieved about - 90% of the files. Murphy's Law... the really important stuff was gone for ever.)

If you do find any of your works, I hope you post them here.


EDIT: I had to edit "eighty" in numeral form to a html character, as otherwise it kept on rendering as a kolobok. mega_shok.gif ... (see?)

I am not so worried. They were all fairly simple to make.

Besides, now I have even more incentive to make some newer/better ones. wink.gif

curtsey.gif Thank you, Reny. These were amazing to work on; the court cards in particular (K, Q, J) took a great deal of time and many moments of frustration to get the colours and details to look right at 100%.

Those must have taken ages. shok.gif clapping.gif
Maybe they could do with a border on the card edges though, so it doesn't "wash" on a light background?

I mentioned that I would be making a kolobok with its arm in a sling... so I've finally got around to it.

A boy kolobok with his arm in a sling, and a girl version with her arm in a sling:


These are wonderful too!!! I forgot to comment on them earlier. clapping.gif yahoo.gif

QUOTE (Almirena @ Jul 26 2019, 04:38 AM) *
Have you ever been to a carnival or fair, where one of the stalls offered the Laughing Clowns game?

They always fascinated me, those inexorably turning clown heads with the gaping mouths!



This is really well done. And I think you have nailed the turning movement.
One small change I would make though is to make ithe head turn just as far in the other direction.
Then it would be perfect! wink.gif

I hope you don't mind my suggestions too much. give_rose.gif

BradLee, I do not mind suggestions at all. Sometimes they give another perspective, or added weight to something, and I'm very conscious of not being a gifted artist and having had to learn kolobok-making from scratch by examining other people's koloboks in detail, sometimes frame by frame.

My koloboks are done pixel by pixel in close-up, then reducing them down to 100% again to examine them anxiously (to see if what worked in zoom works in the correct size), zooming in because almost always it does NOT look the way I want it to, and so on. It can be frustrating when the little kolobok or its accoutrements look muddy or unclear at 100%, and I have to play around with the colours or amount of detail or any of a number of factors.

With the card koloboks, I have a grey shadow line (single pixel border, #DBDBDB) and rounded edges on the right and lower sides of the cards, to give the definition that I hoped would be just enough to stop the cards from disappearing against light backgrounds. I think it works, but if it turns out not to, I would reluctantly change it. (I wanted just that subtle definition!)

Thank you re the boy and girl kolobok with slings. (I used the memory of my own arm in a sling as the mental model.)

Re the Laughing Clowns - oh rats. I think you may be right. Another person has insisted that the neck movement doesn't go far enough, even though I tried to base my kolobok version on this video (especially from 16 seconds in). I am going to increase the movement to 180°. Thanks for the honest feedback!

Sometimes those little koloboks feel the spirit of adventure take hold of them. They want to go off into the wide blue yonder, seeking out thrills and excitement.

I couldn't resist answering the kolobok's call for adventure, and gave this kolobok a jetpack.

And now... another kolobok idea which I'd been thinking about for a while... a girl kolobok jumping out of a cake.

tender.gif Thank you, BradLee.




How often do koloboks need to eat? In case they're feeling hungry, here is a kolobok heating up his lasagne in the microwave.
