FMM- Lanterns to the Otherside by tohdaryl FMM- Lanterns to the Otherside by tohdaryl
Inspired from the ending of Fatal Frame 3 and in memory of those who lost their lives in the 2011 tsunami in Sendai, Japan.

FYI:
Toro nagashi or “lantern offerings on the water, “Toro” means lantern, whilst “Nagashi” means to stream. Small paper lanterns containing light candles on a wooden or bamboo base are set adrift on calm water. Usually a message is written on the outside of the paper lantern. The purpose of this event is to send off ancestral spirits or the recently departed.

a red one for a relative that passed away during previous years and a white one for the recently deceased, a way to supposedly guide the spirits of the departed back to the other world.

I don't forget to add a comment, but I think that all it has just been said. I don't want to add something that will result as trite, only I can do it's fave. In my personal view, fave it's the only way I knows to say: "I love it, I don't know why, there'are too many reasons, that all have just said, so..."

I always enjoy how subtle you make everything with Fox Mask Man. Eveyrthing's understated, colours are muted, it just adds a bit of class.

Isn't there a festival of this sort annually in Japan? I thought the FF3 ending was sort of a weird version of that.

Amazing. And even though your mask is frozen in that "smiling face" it doesn't even really look like that. Good use of angles there.

I can't not favorite this. It's a moving piece for what has been happening in Japan, and a nod to the end of an installment in one of my favorite series of games. Nicely done.

Before reading your description I knew it was a reference to the Fatal Frame 3 ending. The feelings of the picture don't need words to be understood. Great job.
