An interesting aesthetic caught my attention while watching an opera on TV.
Searching I found that this rich visual is called commedia dell'arte, and then I started drawing sketches with the theme.
These studies led to the idea of creating a Jester using a wooden leg, based on the aesthetics of the commedia dell'arte.
The mask is a very present element in commedia dell'arte, but in the character, I decided not to put a mask, but to make his face with exaggerated proportions, similar to one.
The image was made in 3dsmax and completed in Photoshop.
Some steps of production are shown as follows.
