Fun Thresh lantern just in time for Halloween! Not full sized, this lantern is lighted by small LED bulbs located on the inside. When it came to designing the lantern itself, I only detailed out half of the shape. Once I got that all completed, I sliced the lantern in half, deleting the non detailed half. From there, I mirrored what was left. Once the lantern was finished, I took a tube and cut it in half, having it serve as the hook on the top of the lantern. I had another half tube for the purpose of hooking the other tube onto the lantern, and from there it was already almost finished. Finally, I went into CorelDRAW X7 and traced out a simple lock, importing that back into 3D Studio and extruding it up.
Once again, feel free to change up the design, and if you find an even cooler way for this to look, send me a message! I'd love to see what you guys can come up with!
