In Chinese fancy lantern and the ACG 1, I have told about the flexibility of wire is not enough to express a complex cartoon character face. Then, how to make a complex cartoon character face or human face in the lantern festival? The answers are two ways:
1.Use a special FRP material which is translucent.
- Merit: Can easliy finished the complex face or other complex shape.
- Demerits: It’s not the traditional material of making the lantern, cultural connotation is very low.
- Picture for example: You can see that the fairs faces were translucent.
2.Using high-level shape benchworker and art designing try to finished it.
- Merit: Keeping the Chinese lantern original crafts, it will make many amazing lanterns.
- Demerits: The product depends on the Chinese Lantern craftsmen, it’s cost much more money than using the FRP material.
- Picture for example: This was from Changfeng park of Shanghai Lantern Festival when we were in partnership with Disney.
