Hearthstone Hex Frog

Hex, in Hearthstone, is a spell for the shaman class which transforms a minion into a 0/1 frog with taunt for 3 mana. It is one of the best removal spells as it permanently changes a potentially powerful minion into a nonthreatening amphibian.

I wanted to make this model for a while as there are not very many easy subjects to capture in Hearthstone and a frog seemed pretty basic. This differs from most other origami frogs as it sits upright just as it is portrayed in the card art.

The design revolves around the eyes. Sometimes when I design models sometimes there is one specific aspect I want to capture and then I design the rest of the model around it with the remaining paper and in this case it was the surprised eyes. If I were to change anything I would try to make the legs slightly longer but overall I am happy with how it turned out.

Finally I couldn’t find the usual camera I use so I tried a different camera and different techniques so hopefully the pictures look slightly better.
