[PL]

Zębatek to straszny śpioch. Przesypia niemal cały dzień - dziesięciogodzinny sen to dla niego norma. A jako że Zębatek jest Nocną Furią, aktywny jest w nocy a w dzień śpi. To powoduje sporo problemów.

Teraz Zębaty ma 7 miesięcy - sypia od 10 do 12 godzin na dobę; budzi się w południe lub wczesnym popołudniem i jest aktywny do północy albo i dłużej. Ale teraz jest i tak lepiej niż kiedyś. Zaraz po wykluciu Zębaty spał niemal 2/3 doby - głównie w dzień. Kiedy się budził nocą, kwilił domagając się karmienia i uwagi. Niełatwo jest iść potem na 7 rano do pracy po całej nocy zabawiania tego małego urwisa ganiającego po pokoju do upadłego! Ale miesiąc za miesiącem, czas jego aktywności zaczął się przesuwać z nocy na dzień, dopasowując się do mojego cyklu aktywności i jestem pewien, że pewnego dnia Zębaty będzie prowadził w pełni dzienny tryb życia.

Mimo to nadal łatwiej zasypia mu się w dziennym świetle, toteż jego posłanie, które zrobiłem mu w wiklinowym koszyku - strasznie trzeszczy gdy się w nim wierci - stoi w osobnym pokoju, z oknem na południe, przeznaczonym tylko dla Zębatka, gdzie może się bezpiecznie bawić i wygodnie przebywać: nie ma w nim ogrzewania, bo zauważyłem, że Zębaty nie lubi zbyt wysokich temperatur i lepiej mu się śpi w chłodzie. Raz, kiedy biegał po mieszkaniu, porwał z mojego łóżka stojącego tam pluszowego misia, którego dostałem od mamy w dzieciństwie. Zaniósł go do swojego koszyka i zadowolony położył się na nim głośno protestując gdy chciałem mu go odebrać. I tak już zostało. Teraz co noc śpi ze "swoim" misiem. Słodko wtedy wygląda...

Po wykluciu, mały Zębatek głośno płakał, więc chciałem go utulić i uspokoić. Wtedy przypomniałem sobie o starej kołysance; jest znana w Polsce - ma tytuł "Ach śpi kochanie". Pochodzi z filmu "Paweł i Gaweł" z roku 1938 i śpiewali ją Eugeniusz Bodo i Adolf Dymsza. Postanowiłem jednak nieco zmienić jej tekst, tak aby była dobrą kołysanką dla małego smoczka. Zębatkowi się spodobała. Szybko się uspokoił i wkrótce potem zasnął. Oryginalny fragment filmu z kołysanką możecie obejrzeć na YouTube, żeby poznać melodię i zaśpiewać kołysankę swoim dzieciom (smoczym też) - www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZI3vN…

P.S. Nie wiedziałem, że taki maluszek może tak głośno chrapać!

[ENG]

Toother is an incredible sleepy-head. He sleeps through almost all day - ten hour-long sleep is a standard for him. And because Toother is a Night Fury, he is active by night and sleeps in day-time. It causes a lot of problems.

Now Toother is 7 months old - he sleeps between 10 to 12 hours per day; he wake up on noon or early afternoon and stays active to midnight or longer. But now it's far better than before. Just after hatching, Toother have been sleeping almost 2/3 of all day - mostly in day-time. When he woke up at night, he was whimpering and demanding feeding and attention. It's not easy to go to work at 7 a.m. after all night of entertaining this little tyke, who was running around room until he was blue or maybe white, on the face... You know what does I mean? It was hard time. But month after month, his activity-time has been slowly moving from night to day, matching his activity-time to mine, and today I'm sure that one day, Toother will become a completely diurnal creature.

Even then, he falls asleep easier in day-light, so his bed, which I have made for him in wicket basket - it cracks awfully when he wriggles in it - stands in separate room with south facing window, intended only for Toother, where he cans play safely and reside comfortably: there is no heating, because I have noticed that Toother doesn't like high temperature and he sleeps better in coolness. Once, when he was running around my flat, he grabbed from my bad a teddy bear, which I have had from my mom when I was a child. He took him to his basket and bunked down on him with pleasure, remonstrating loudly when I was trying to take him back. So, that is haw he get him. Now, he sleeps with "his" teddy bear every night. He looks so sweet then...

After hatching, little Toother was cheeping so loudly, that I want to console him and calm down somehow. And then I have remind an old lullaby; it's well known in Poland - it's titled "Oh, slip my lovely". It come from movie "Peter and Gall", from 1938, and it has been sung by famous Polish actors: Eugeniusz Bodo and Adolf Dymsza. I decide to change the text of this song a little bit, to make it a good lullaby for little dragon baby. It appeal to Toother. He calm down quickly and after a while he fall asleep. You can watch at YouTube an excerpt of the movie with an original lullaby to find out it's melody and sing it to your children (baby dragons too) - www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZI3vN…

P.S. I have no idea, that so small creature can snore so loudly!

// Oh, slip my lovely //                                                         // Ach, śpij kochanie //

So many stars above,                                                        Tyle gwiazd na górze,
As many hearts in love,                                                       Ile cudów w chmurze,
Stars telling them from hight:                                              Gwiazdy mówią, że już czas,
Let's fall asleep tonight.                                                      I do spania kładą nas.

So, slip my lovely,                                                                Więc śpij kochanie,
If you wanna yummy fish - you'll got it,                               Jeśli rybkę pyszną chcesz - dostaniesz,
How can I you happy made,                                                Co ci szczęści może dać,
You have just to indicate,                                                    Daj mi o tym tylko znać,
And, finally, go to bed.                                                         I nareszcie idź już spać.

Oh, slip cause at night,                                                        Ach, śpij bo nocą,
When in dark sky stars are shining so bright,                     Gdy na niebie gwiazdy już migocą,
Every baby - dragon's too,                                                  Każde dziecko - smocze też,
Should be sleeping, what you knew,                                  Spać powinno, dobrze wiesz,
Everybody, but not you.                                                      A ty jeden spać nie chcesz.

Shuiu, shuiu, tell me baby what to do?                               Aaa, aaa, były sobie smoki dwa,
Shuiu, dragons two; big and tiny; me and you.                  Aaa, smoki dwa; mały, duży; ty i ja.

So, slip cause right now,                                                     Więc, śpij bo właśnie,
Moon is sleepy, close his eyes and yawn,                           Księżyc ziewa i za chwilę zaśnie,
When at morning sun will rise,                                            A gdy rano wstanie świt,
Moon would be so embarrassed,                                        Księżycowi będzie wstyd,
Cause he fell asleep - not you.                                           Że on zasnął a nie ty.

Sweet dreams my lovely tiny reptile...                                Słodkich snów moja kochana gadzinko...

1). I have no idea; I just take some Toother's photos to have a still picture and just draw what I see. Simple. But, trust me - it's more patience and precision than talent and skills. I'm not an artist - I'm a craft-maker in fact.

2). Sometime even 3 months, but I draw not day after day. When I have time, I draw. That's all. Doodles consume much of this time. But they are very useful.

I think that is a thought all aspiring artists possess.  It is always 'There is someone out there who can do this better than me!' It's really depressing to think about, but then again, you have to think that everyone has their own unique approach to art. It is very difficult to replicate something to the exact same standards.  All we can do is try our best and to carry on with what we love doing.

Świetna praca. Jestem zszokowany tą dbałością o detale - posadzki, kosz wiklinowy, smocze łuski - aż miło się to ogląda, prawdziwa uczta dla oczu. Chciałbym móc coś skrytykować, ale nie widzę nic co mógłbym obrać za cel. Mogę tylko dodać, że fakt iż jest to praca wykonana tradycyjnie dodaje jej niesamowitego uroku.

Jak długo zajmuje Ci wykonanie pracy z tym poziomem detali?

Och, szanowny kolego artysto! Jest mi na prawdę miło, że tak ci się spodobał ten rysunek. Jestem z niego wyjątkowo dumny bo wszystko mi w nim wyszło i jestem wręcz niepoprawnie zadowolony z efektu, aczkolwiek z czasem zapewne dałoby się dodać nieco szczegółów i poprawić to lub owo, ale to tylko taka niezdrowa obsesja - jak tik nerwowy ;P . Cieszy mnie fakt, że oglądanie tej pracy sprawiło ci przyjemność. To dla mnie najważniejsze!

Ten konkretny rysunek powstawał 3 miesiące (Tron Siedmiu Dusz to rekordzista - 5 miesięcy), ale terminy w moim przypadku nie są zbyt miarodajne; sporo czasu schodzi na bazgroł-arty, zdarzają mi się kilkutygodniowe przerwy a potem rysuje dzień po dniu, zaś innym razem kilka dni dumam z ołówkiem w zębach nad jednym detalem bojąc się skalać kartkę papieru nieprzemyślaną kreską. U mnie czas na prawdę jest względny...

Toother is an artistic challenge for me; I have promised to myself that I will never show a Toother's photo but I will try to depict his so realistic as it is only possible. So, I'm happy that in your eyes, Toother is like a real. Thank you, my dear!
