Straw Effigy 02

I created a straw effigy (straw doll) that has been used to curse in traditional Japanese way.
It was difficult to make straw materials and to adjust their shapes and locations.
But creating it was good study for me and I feel this is relatively best image for now.


Final render.


*I felt this render is too dark, so I replaced it with upper one.


The background is just a image not a model.




This is straw material test image.
I used three kind of materials of them.
I used only three types, but by rotating models, I thought that it would not look in one pattern. What do you think, guys?
I used photo “scanned texture”, I do not know if this is the correct name, but I scanned the actual straws. In order to apply this texture to very flat cylinders, I actually unwrapped the straws.

Please tell me impressions and advices.

Old version is in category of focused critiques.
The advice I got here helped me a lot in creatign this. Thank you.

これ日本人にしか理解できない代物だよね・・・

そうですねー、ちょっと分かりにくいかなあと思いました。
呪いたい相手の顔写真を貼ったりとか、胴体に赤い糸を結んでみるとかしたらもう少しみんなにピンとくるものになったかもしれないです。

まあ、藁自体の出来については今のところ良いかなと思ってるので次は案山子でも作ろうかなと思います。

作品そのものは、凄いよく出来ていて素晴らしいです。
でも、他国の方が見たら、ナニコレ?と不思議に思われるでしょうねw
それと誰かの顔写真は貼らない方が良いです。
特定の人物の顔写真を貼ってしまうとトラブルのもとになりますので。
案山子、楽しみに待つ事に致します。
