Welcome to the Hero Forge Miniature Masterpiece Countdown.
Every day I post a miniature that exemplifies a designer’s use of at least one of my critical design principles: technical skill with the tools, innovative thinking, and expression of theme or subject matter.
At the end of the week, I post the number 1 Miniature Masterpiece. This mini demonstrates the designer’s ability to employ all 3 creative elements in their work.
After 7 weeks, all the winners of the countdown are placed on a single list, and you vote for your number 1 miniature.
Who will be the season 2 All-Star?
I found this particular Miniature Masterpiece to be simultaneously stunning and haunting. Better still, it subtly expresses the subject. Lycan Blood Hunters is the unofficial class that employs werewolf abilities and fighting prowess.
What struck me most about this mini were the eyes. The designer, Ari15, manipulated the lighting tool and silvered the eyes so that they gave off an iridescent glow. This blood hunter looks as though she is being called to the moon as she attends her bloody work.
Expert implementation of the Hero Forge tools and expression of thematic content made this miniature A true masterpiece.
