"Bunraki theater is a pretty popular form of entertainment. Puppeteers used to travel the roads to make a living, telling stories like the Shortest One Ever : the Tale of the Ocean Maiden. One day ( or night ), a shrine maiden undertakes a journey across the sea only to sink when a giant wave wipes her boat."
Uhhwee. Lots of fun with this one. Everything is procedural, a few megascans textures as usual. Rest is, again, prim colors. Guest starring the Female Simple Model ! As always render with Karma, though I tend to prefer the CPU mode for now. XPU lacks reactivity, imho. A possible inspiration for the piece could be Kubo and the Two Strings, which would explain why I felt compeled to go with a small stop motion effect with slighly out of sync elements, Akira style. Fun to experiment with this kind of little things!
