Almost a year ago the ASM, historical-modeling Association of Civitanova Marche, asked me to realize ia miniature of Nicolino, their mascot, dressed with the uniform of a Voltigueur of the Kingdom of Naples, flanked by the “pupa” or the Hoopoe, symbol of the city of Civitanova. This miniature was made for the Ludica Marche convention (June 2017)
As usual, I proceeded to draw some sketches, then draw the final concept of the subject:
From this I started to get to the final result that you can see below:
The figure is around 35mm tall, and it’s sculpted in two parts, in fact for casting reasons, the rifle with the hoopoe has been scukpted separately.
