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.
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 in Blender Artists.
The advice I got here helped me a lot in creatign this.
