MY FINAL ENTRY:
I hope that you will enjoy it! I had lots of fun while making it and while postprocessing it in sketchfab!
Hopefully I managed to catch the more lighthearted mystery style like those found in Scooby-Doo cartoons
Island of Boatmurdered is a peaceful paradise during sunny days and a dangerous beauty during stormy weather. It is full of talented people who come there to pursue their artistic nature. Artists from all over the world migrate here because the local government completely funds their work. In return the artists promise that their work will never leave the island, making it into the perfect tourist attraction. Many collectors from around the world visit this place, dreaming of owning at least one of the displayed items.
However, this paradise has a problem. It is haunted by the Ghostly Fisherman! It's a ghost of a fisherman who left home during a storm and never returned. The rumor says the poor man hit an old naval mine - a leftover from a mine field set up during the war. There he is! But what is he doing? And why?
SOLUTION (SPOILERS AHEAD - DON'T READ IF YOU WANT TO SOLVE THE MYSTERY YOURSELF):
The ghostly fisherman is in fact a local jeweler named Carl Stark. He bypasses the export ban by dropping his work into the ocean. The exact spot is marked on a message in a bottle left near the buoy by his accomplice. His accomplice fishes it out the next day, pretending to be a regular fisherman.
After one of such drop offs the net was cut by sharp edges of the box in which the jewel was stored. That's why Carl decided to drop off his jewelry without any packaging. This meant that someone could possibly notice the crime. To avoid being spotted Carl decided on doing this only during a stormy weather. Unfortunately he was still spotted by a local fisherman who wasn't afraid of the storm. He had to make him disappear.
To prevent such situations from ever happening again he shaved fisherman's distinctive orange beard and dressed up as his ghost. In this disguise he spread rumors about the naval mines to any passing sailors. Soon the local townsfolk completely avoided this dreaded place.
