This model was delivered to my amazing Patrons during the Lunar Festival, giving them a bit more to illuminate their scenes with! With a moderate poly-count suited for close-ups, this little lantern comes in the classic luck-filled shades of crimson and gold with dangling fringe and tassel, as well as blue, green, gold, purple, and white. It was my hope to create something that made sense structurally and also was something detailed enough that it could be used in high-resolution renders.
The paper portion of the lantern is mapped flat, for ease in applying textures in just about any type of suitable software, and the entire interior of the lantern was modeled so that it even works with transparent or cut-out paper patterns.
