The Magician

    Hi Planeters!
    This time I want to show a genre scene of stoling a purse from an old man.
    Some explanations here should be given.
    These two figures - is a part of bigger composition I'm working now. The general idea is to make a scene we see in Jeronimus Bosch's picture "The Magician". An old man pay his attention to real magician showing tricks while a young man behind him stoling his purse. There is much extra figures there in the paintind and I'm planning to make them all. Not to make a 3D copy of Bosch but to arrange them different as I see. The trick the magician is demonstrating will be very well known nowadays as a game with three thimbles and a ball (how do you call this game in your countries?).
    I decided to make a figures dressed in costumes of the end of 15 century - when Bosch painted his Magician. So an old man is dressed as a stranger from Italy in a bit older-fascioned gown and expencive chaperon cap. Maybe he is money changer or merchant. The thieve looks like a student, I think. Not as a beggar of course. It's Ok - students of all the times suffered of lack of money - so why not to try to stole something of the rich man?

    Vlad,
    The game is called the "Three shell game". With larger cups it is called the "Cups and Balls" Great sculpt and a great idea.
    Cheers

    Vlad, Just awesome! The drapery very well done. Your faces are also full of character. These will paint up nicely.~Gary

    Vlad,
    this is some interpretation of Jeroen Bos paintings. We call the game "balletje-balletje".
    I'm looking forward to your vignette, because as a Dutchman i'm a great addict of the Jeroen Bos paintings.
    Looks great to a 3D rendition of it.

    Well done, Vlad! Superb rendition of an original idea. What scale is it?

    Some may find the heads a little too big for the 'modern' standard but I think it adds to the character and the period look.

    Looking forward to the next step.

    Guy, John, Garry - "to be continued" as they say...
    Here's one more picture of my try to arrange this mega-mass composition. Btw there are only main actors. A child and the dog are missing as well as two more figures in the mob.
    But first of all I have to give appropriate finish to the portraits of figurines I've done. When I see their faces on photos i guess need to work harder on them.
    To that's the name of the game! 'Cups and Ball' - so simply! Interesting that in russian we call it 'thimbles' even if a thimble will be as big as bucket.

    Marc, I'm glad to knew you are fond of Dutch school of painting. As to me I love it too. Landscapes of Ruisdales (both of them - Jacob and Solomon), portraits of Frans Hals, as well as all Bruegel with his country fests.

    Quang, you are completely right - I make here 'big heads' - bigger then usual 'seven and a half' or even 'eight heads' rules as I use for military figurunes. It's between 7 to 7.5 heads especially to show proportions of a simply men, nor heroes or warriors. I hope it will add a funny look or will help to underline charactrers. Yes, I want to bring a little fun in all this composition and I hope you'll enjoy it.

    I can't wait to see this one finished. I wish that I could sculpt as there are many great paintings out there that I would love to copy.

    Great Idea! I like it a lot! It's something different the single scale figures!

    Here's some new additions - the Magician itself and a nun. Nun is'nt finished yet that's why I hadn't filmed her.
