Exploring 3D illustrations by recreating scenes from Miyazaki Movies
3D Illustrations | Cinema4D
This is a passion project started with the intention to learn and experiment with 3D modeling in cinema4D. I chose to design scenes based on the Miyazaki films Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle.
Spirited Away Storyline
Spirited Away tells the story of a 10-year old girl named Chihiro, who while moving to a new neighborhood with her parents enters the world of Kami (spirited) in Japanese Shinto folklore.
While there she meets interested characters in a Japanese bathhouse. This 3D render is based on Ootori Sama, chicken-like characters who serve as servants for a deity in the film.
The bathhouse is the main location for the majority of character development in the film. The interior features multiple floors, customer-use baths, tatami mats, wooden doors, and warm lighting.
When replicating this in 3D, I tried to stick as close to the materials and lighting as possible.
