Hello from Spain
« on: May 22, 2021, 05:42:25 AM »
I am Solé, a sculptor and lover of classical music and opera. I want to show you the collection of figures "Opera Composers". I would like to know your opinion. I am also modeling the collection of classical music composers Vivaldi, J.S. Bach, Beethoven, etc. And another collection of virtuoso musicians / composers playing their instrument, Paganini, Vivaldi, etc.

I’m impressed. You capture the figures and attitudes of your models with great realism. I especially liked Monteverdi, Rossini, Gluck, Handel, Britten and Puccini. I must say I wouldn’t have recognized Mozart instantly though  :).

Great idea to picture them from different angles (Benvenuto Cellini would have approved !) and to feature their music, of course !

Suggestion: make the display run for a little longer, with more music and longer shots ?

Of Mozart there are only three portraits:
1.   Mozart de Bolonia https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/ce/Mozart_Bolognia_1777.png/330px-Mozart_Bolognia_1777.png
2.   By Barbara Krafft https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/1e/Wolfgang-amadeus-mozart_1.jpg/270px-Wolfgang-amadeus-mozart_1.jpg
3.   By Joseph Lange https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4c/Mozart_Lange.png

Lithograh from Nissen’s Biography. Mozart's left ear.  https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archivo:Oreja_de_Mozart.jpg

I have been guided by reading: Physical appearance and personality of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.https://second.wiki/wiki/aspecto_fc3adsico_y_personalidad_de_wolfgang_amadeus_mozart

I have performed my interpretation, no portrait resembles each other.
Thank you very much, André. I appreciate that.

Very impressive!   :) Are you making them just for your own enjoyment or are you hoping to sell them?

And welcome to the forum!

Hello and welcome. Your statues are very impressive. Do you do the photography as well?

Bravo, those are excellent, Solé! Is that Jaroussky (but not Nura Rial?) in Monteverdi's Pur ti miro? Sounds lovely! Fwiw, I also think it'd be great if the shots/music clips were a little longer.

Bienvenido to the forum!  :)

Thank you all ;)

I ask for help in creating typical operatic characters, such as the Papageno I have already modeled.

I still do not have them for sale, I am reviewing the opinions of potential clients and the limitation of the series, between 200 or 300 copies, the price? Well, I still don't know.

Thank you.

Created using 3D modeling software with the style of clay, the size is 1:1 but I print them to scale 1/10.
