About the project
The site "Author's emoticons Kolobok Style
" - is a resource dedicated to the author's works of animators painting koloboks
). The main target of the site is to create a place with unique works of talented animators. As well as to allow visitors to see the original works on pages of the gallery, to download the packs for using them in their blogs, homepages, forums, chats and Internet-pagers. And also to give the painters the opportunity to publish their works in galleries helping them to preserve their distinctiveness, independence and originality. And to give visitors the opportunity to get to know the real authors and to communicate with them and with other visitors.
The history of the site creation began on November 9th , 2004
on the domain kolobok.wrg.ru, when it as created without any great plans and expectations. The only target of its creation was to publish my works in the net. there was a folder created on the server, a domain of the third level and a simple CMS. There weren't many visitors, as well as many works, the site was placed on a general hosting. Since March 2005 we have a gallery for visitors, where we published (and still do it) the works made by our site visitors. The wider koloboks
were spread in the Internet, the more visitors we had. The site began to overload simple hosts (the daily traffic of the site reaches 40 Gb). Then we had to separate it from other projects and to make it an absolutely independent resource on the new domain kolobok.us
. After we have published the part of author’s stencils in form of GDK-files, there was a community of painters from different countries created on our site. We consider it to be the new step in life of our site. Personal galleries appeared, that included only works of talented painters. At the beginning of 2009 the site changed beyond recognition, being moved to the new CMS. We had to work more than half a year. All the information is now available in two languages: in Russian and in English. The design has changed. The registration appeared. We also gave our visitors an opportunity to collect their favorite works on the pages of Featured works of the new gallery.
The main philosophy of our site is to give only positive energy to the visitors of our site, while there are watching our works. Our creation has a repugnance to violence, vulgarity and offences. Our works don’t show any aggression, malice or humiliation. In our galleries you won’t find any koloboks
acting vulgarly, offending someone’s religious sensibilities or demonstrating something shameless. The motto of the authors painting koloboks
sounds so: "We are kind and jolly! We give joy to people!"
Since our site was created, koloboks
officially appeared in many programs, scripts, game projects. The number of sites and forums using them on their pages just can’t be counted. Here is a short list of projects using koloboks
