Bath House- ‘Feudal Japan: The Shogunate’.

This is a scene I made in Unreal for the Artstation competition ‘Feudal Japan: The Shogunate’.

A Bathouse Sentō (銭湯) is a type of Japanese communal bath house where customers pay for entrance. It is an old tradition that has become widely popular in modern day. I'm following the Shogunate style and incorporating some story elements with the lighting and some Yokai. The Yokai I chose is the Umibōzu, the umibōzu,a very well known yōkai as it is also recognized in modern Japanese culture. They are said to live out at sea and capsize any boat if anyone speaks it's name, usually shipwrecking fishermen. It is believed to be a drowned priest, exhibiting a shaven head and typically appears to be praying, along with having a perpetual smile. It is usually reported as having a grey, cloud-like torso and serpentine limbs.
