Granted, I do more models than figures, but the fold lines are usually 5 pixels or wider. Scoring the line, there is room for being mis-aligned. Lining up tabs keeps everything straight. It shouldn't add more work for OneMonk basing, yet it makes things substantially easier for flat-basing
Colombina is next. I am starting to have doubts about how I chose to do these. It might be a whole lot easier to convert the Maurice Sand images into figures, and adjust the Epinal figure backs to my figure. On the other hand, I feel like this method pays a bit of homage to both, the Sand artwork and the Epinal Theater Figures
Correction. Even though Maschere e Personaggi della Commedia Italiana N.16 looks like one of the Epinal Theater pieces, it was actually from Rome in 1896 roughly. We had talked about how Commedia dell Arte evolved over time. It is interesting seeing how Sand images they used to create their figures are given different names than the ones Sand gave in the first half of the 19th century. I almost wish I had the book. In the text, he tells about his images, sometimes giving us the date of the costume being drawn. It's no wonder that his images are still being sold on Etsy and online Art shops and in tourist shops. He put in the work to get things right

As it was mentioned on Facebook, there are a number of folks wanting to include Comedie delle 'Arte in Carnevale, so I will need to come back to this. But I think I will want to take another tack with it. The figures that I have been working on have been done based on the Maurice Sand illustrations from his book. His illustrations are poses. And there is a place for figures like this, but they feel static. Makes sense when you realize they were people standing for hours posing.
Benjamin Pollock took over the J. Redington Print Shop and turned it into the B. Pollock Toy Shop, where he and his wife did paper theaters. His figures look more cartoonish in style, but they are posed as if they are in a performance. I really think I need to blend all three styles.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
