Mini of the Week 10-4-19

Welcome back to Mini of the Week, where every Friday I will find a miniature from around the web that exemplifies an aspect of our hobby and share it with you.

Loonboos by Sadziu on Cool Mini or Not
This is such a cool idea! I absolutely love the use of light here. You really get the sense of this Loonboss skulking around at night. The object source lighting is top notch, but what really impresses me are the colors in shadows. You get the sense that they are in shadow and almost black, but at the same time you can still clearly tell what color they actually are. The glowing red eyes are really eerie too. The perfect touch though is the bad moon being reflected in the blade of his weapon. It's not something you notice right away, but once you do it's amazing.

The OSL is also handled wonderfully. The choice of the green and purple help push home the fantastical nature of it. They are painted very convincingly, with the glow on the green mushrooms being particularly good. I also like how they went with two different levels of intensity with the glows, with the purple mushroom being more subdued. This mini is really a masterclass in object source lighting and shadows.

Be sure to check out more views of it on Cool Mini or Not.

Until next time,
