    The Butler

    I used a few tricks to get this with the mouse. The face (excluding ears and neck), was made by smearing paint tube on two layers I blended adding each layer relief. I used also pencil, roller, airbrush, hair stickers, layer blending and appropriate areas selections. It was just to have some fun and experimental test. I hope you may find it interesting nonetheless.

    Speaking of Fellini. . . looks like one of his characters out of his remembrances -- the one who was influenced by Rudolph Valentino. The look from a stylish era. I don't think he sees himself as a mere butler.

    Thank you, dear Jean! Each now and then my mouse want to practice and make some excercise. How can I deny it such an opportunity even if ends up mostly with silly outcomes ...?

    Dear DAkey, it wasn't by chance or a mere coincidence that Fellini was good at drawing, watercoloring and making caricatures I guess. He left plenty of sketches, often watercolored which in many cases were used to express some sort of idea of "imagination" he eventually turned into scenes of his movies. I think we used to live in a quite lucky and unique place especially when it comes at visions and fantasies where colors, beauty and grotesque as well are a topic. Even nostalgia here takes so many varied aspects and images You may hardly find anywhere else I believe. Thank You!

    Thank you, dear Rondo. You're absolutely right! He was a genius in his way and curiously looked like he might from from many different places physiognomically speaking.

    Thank You, dear BushcraftOnFire! Well I woudn't say it's easy, but, believe me, for certain kind of line drawing has its advantages too and as for menu opening and selection is somehow better for me if not faster than the pen.


    eheheh sei un verio intenditore, caro mio! Non posso che darti ragione! Grazie Damaso!

    eheheh You're a true connoisseur, my dear! I cannot but agree with You! Thank You Damaso!

    How interesting! I never knew Fellini did character sketches. Marvelous. We've got to admire the internet. Just Googled his sketches and voila!

    It's amazing how much it explains about his vision. You could see what he was exaggerating by so much focus on a circus performer's ass, or which characters looked like cartoon characters, or Picasso line drawings and probably Daumier as well. He was an eclectic fellow for sure. In many cases, he basically did comic books on the screen and cast humans who possessed those characteristics which he exaggerated in his drawings, didn't he. And I can almost hear him directing the wardrobe and costume departments to enhance those exaggerations. After all, he did love the circus.

    Thanks for that cultural tidbit, Caesar. We really must give you a film budget so you can take your visions onto the screen.

    Glad you appreciated, dear DAkey! So I revealed one of the secrets which can make special Italian guys stand out, often unexpectedly, even in any whatsoever new field. And the fun is that being an Italian is more a matter of a special nurture, treatment and character You may get only locally, more easily in the past, I'm afraid, and that You may take away with You as sort of benign disease that a matter of heritage, so anyone can become thus be, over a certain specific experience threshold, Italian, just as anyone may become American, a star and stripes citizen, and it doesn't require exclusivity either, since the Roman empire times where anyone ended up to be Roman. Certainly there are quite a few things you have to appreciate of life quite significantly too as an evidence You got such disease I guess ... LOL
