This latest update reveals the animator's experience of using Blender for the first time, which found it to be a steep learning curve at first, which was later alleviated by the helpful and engaged community and the youtube tutorials of Luciano Muñoz.
A big part of March was also spent on lighting and shading, with the film using a mixture of procedural Eevee shaders and handpainted texture to achieve its distinctive look.
