Continuing the puppet-animation based (loosely) on the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh.

The Goddess Aruru has sent a new hero called Enkidu to challenge Gilgamesh. Rather than confront him directly, Gilgamesh sends Samhat the Harlot to tame him. Episode 2 of 10.

I must comment on the backgrounds - they are perfect. Nice shots in the woods.

I really liked the middle section asking the woman to visit the wildman.

All the dialogue is great and the scenes seem to me to be the perfect length.

The "I've seen more women than grains of sand" section had me giggling.

Sorry, can't stay, off to part 3.

Dolphinlee -

Thanks so much for the encouragement! The backgrounds in the woods were actually shot in the woods, but the backgrounds in most of the other scenes were done by green-screen, using Blender - this is my first time using either green-screen or Blender to any extent, and it was a major part of the project as far as I was concerned - so it's really nice to get some positive feedback about the results.

You are most welcome. I particularly like stuff which is clever but doesn't try to ram it's cleverness down your throat. Three years of watching North American TV and so this series was doubly welcome.
