hello,

beautiful pictures to see all this in the original would be a dream.
a female figure in this scale?
It looks as "Bonnie Parker" fits also nearly to the age.

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2009/06/48.jpg

If I lie correctly, it gives then "Clyde Barrow" also as figure?
There I have an idea for a Diorama!!!

I love some of the small details you put in your dioramas, its detail like that that gives an image heart, little things that are so easy to forget.
There are very few immaculate workshops out there but you see plenty in dioramas.
You grab that humanity and throw it into your work, love them.

hello John,

did you ignore my question concerning the figures?
I wanted to know whether the Bonnie and Clyde are.
If, which manufacturer is that?
I look for female figures in this Scale.

Thanks ,you are right! one of the hardest things to do in art is to avoid being too neat.Only man plants trees in rows.1gramps1

The last two vignettes are at the opposite ends of the scale in many ways.The crashed airplane is very somber in mood while the "Buds" piece is happy .One very dark and the other very light.
The airplane picture gives the eye very little visual information and looks the most real, while the opposite is true of the figures.Both tell stories but on completely different levels.Proving that in art sometimes less is more!

Less is more is definitely right on. The most difficult thing to do when you're making something is to know where to stop. That's what takes years to accomplish.

Thank you to the Aerodrome.com
for including my stuff in their Art Gallery.Until now only 2D paintings or drawings have been accepted.Not only have they recognized my dioramas as Art but also my digital picture compositions in 2D as well.
This is wonderful news not only for me but for all dioramists and photographers out there.
Sure it is not the American or Canadian Aviation Artists associations that we are talking about here but it is a crack in the door of what is considered Aviation Art.

Somebody asked me what do you call what you do? you know I had a tough time putting a handle on it myself.When you take a picture of a painting they call it a print.When you take multiple pics in a row they call it a movie.But when you take a 2D pic of a composition that you have created in 3D,what then would you call it.If your composition is totally scratch built and then you take a pic and then put it in a digital frame what would you call it ?A digital print? Interesting..........

Dioramas as a one frame movie!
"What we wanted to do at the beginning of all this,was to show what happens when you take human beings and put them through hell,then wonder how in the world they will approach life when they come home".

Steven Spielberg on his new piece The Pacific.

I was reading this in my newspaper this morning and it struck me how similar his idea for making a 10- part mini series on the war in the Pacific, and my idea for my latest diorama "Loss Of Innocence,Will it Ever Be The Same" are alike.(We must be reading each others mail.)
This is exactly what I have been writing about recently on the power of the storyboard diorama as a one frame movie.
A movie tells a story in all its thrilling detail and action,on a big screen with music,dialogue etc... a diorama does the same but with one frame.That is the magic and the challenge of the storyboard diorama reducing it all to one frame and still tell a powerful story.Sometimes the story is even more powerful in diorama form because it is left up to the viewer to connect the dots in his mind.A movie lays it all out for you ,a diorama requires a little more imagination on your viewers part.
This is why I believe storyboard dioramas are as much an "Art "as any of the other visual media.
