This 54mm scratch built diorama depicts Napoleon Bonaparte at the coup d´etat in the French directory in 1799, which ended the french revolution and in short time created Napoleon as first consul. The diorama is based on a famous painting.
When doing scenes based on paintings one has to remember to adapt and slightly do some delicate changes to the composition as we are creating a 3 D scene bases on a 2 D painting. But you will find some great work, composition and storytelling when studying these famous classical paintings. Diorama made in 2013.
Another oldie I know, but be patient, new creations is coming on these pages very soon... !

    Do you have any other photos on your facebook or elsewhere to admire the scene with a little hindsight to see the sides and the back ... This allows people like me to learn a little about the art of arranging characters…

    Hallo Mike,

      Diesen Eigenen sehr besonderen Stil , den Du entwickelt hast , ist
        herausragend . Es ist für einen Betrachter so , als würde er in einem
      Museum vor einem sehr historischen Gemälde stehen , oder er sei
      im Publikum eines Theaterstückes !!! 

        Ich schätze Deine Kunst sehr
