Thank you, dear Stenfalk, Wolfgang and Egbert, for your feedback.

your very complex work. Nothing has been not thought out, each part finds a place and complements the previous one.
Well you are absolutely right here, Stenfalk. Not only technically but also the logistics and the time planning of developing ships, and crew that fit them, is hard and difficult. I have to think in advance for a year or more.

I remember so well when Alex Gusef made medieval rowers for a boat that was made not by him. And then the figurines did not fit the riverboat. The figurines were not too big, the boat was just too small (scale 1/90 or something like that.) So Gusef had to make a bigger boat himself. It is very difficult to avoid such situations. Once a figurine and a boat is moulded and reproduced, there is no way back.

Yes, it can be solved if I design digitally. But I don't want my whole life online and digitally with my eyes only focussed on a screen.

Last summer I made the Gyptis rowing boat with sail.

But I only have standing sailors at the moment. Or sitting rowers.
In such a small boat its not logical to sail when standing.
Sailors treat sails, yards, lines, cables and rudders while seating.
Otherwise they fall overboard.

So I decided to make new sailors: sitting.
But it takes me much longer to make the crew than to make the boat.
That boat is already for sale.
Now the dummies for the sitting sailors are almost ready.
How long will it take me to receive them back from the forger, get them dressed, send them to the forger again and receive them for selling?
How long will it take before I have them painted in the rigged boat for a promotion picture for selling them :o
I need patience. I will be patient. I must be.

So here they are, my SITTING SAILORS, unfinished dummies, just the raw sculptings.

Hello Mr C.

Your knowledge of human anatomy in your sculptures is starting to give Michelangelo a run for his money.

Super stuff and great imagination on display.

Best wishes,

Chris

Thank you dear Egbert and Chris.

CLIMBING MEN DUMMIES

In 2016 my first group of sculpted figurines ever were 4 climbing male dummie in Green Stuff.

I re-sculpted these poses in 2020 to add them to my dummies series.

But I am still not satisfied.
For some reason my bare eye can not judge the bodyproportions, only the small details by using strong glasses.
I always need macro camera pictures to see whats wrong with the proportions.
It must be pictures made with standard lenses or long lenses.
Never use wide angle lense pictures for judging proportions: it usually makes heads and hands too big and legs too short.

Here is such a picture taken with a medium long cameralense.

I thought these dummies were finished but after taking the picture I knew there was still very much work to do.
Here is the final result after correctings.
I took off the arms for enabling the casting mould.

Hello Mr C.

You might like to investigate these.

I have one and have found revolutionary.

Great for electrics as well.

Best wishes,

Chris

Very nice anatomy studies.
They are really right, these are real ancient sinewy people, no modern times clumsy fat muscle studio reenactor types :lol:

Chris thank you so much for your suggestion to help me. I appreciate that very much.
But regrettably, I bought several of those Headband Magnifyer Visars in the past and found both of them pretty useless.
The plastic magnifying lenses can't compete by far with a simple +4 binoculars I bought for 5 euro's on the open air market. The extra round glass is too small and may work better if it was duo. But I may have bought cheaper ones that do not have the quality of the one you show me. Maybe you are using one of much better quality at home. I have seen Franznap using one so he must be satisfied with it like you.

Thank you Frank. To be honest during sculpting my anatomic dummies become muscle men as you describe. Its the natural result of adding muscle accents to a wire&putty skeleton. With the putty sphere (ball) technique every piece of putty I add to a body becomes a heavy muscle. When finished adding putty spheres, I scrape, scratch and file down those muscles and drill depressions in the bodies so I end up with a slimmer sinewy atonomy.
I found it impossible to sculpt such a sinewy body right away without removing hardened putty afterwards.


GYPTIS RESIN COPY

I have painted and rigged a resin copy of my Gyptis boat from the 6th century BC with 'sewed' planking contruction which can be seen best at the inside of the hull.

Eine fantastische Arbeit!

Mit deinen Schiffen und Figuren muss ich in Zukunft unbedingt ein Diorama bauen!
