The Minotaur 6: A 3D Myth in the Making

Ever wanted your very own Minotaur? If the answer’s no, you might just change your mind when you meet Minotaur 6. This is the latest in the DAZ Original stable of characters for Genesis 2. Interestingly, Minotaur seems to have been paired with Lilith 6, which when you think about it does make sense — being both mythological. Besides, a beast needs a beauty, or so the tales would have it.

Just about all the content hitting the store today has been created to enhance this new beast of a figure. I’ll list it all below and leave you to make up your own mind, since time is short and there’s a whole lot to explore. Also, I think either you’ll be crazy about this new guy and what he can add to your fantasy digital artwork, or it will be the wrong genre and you’ll move on with barely a glance.

Happily, you’re not out in the cold if the Minotaur doesn’t grab you… and yes that’s a scary thought. There’s a wonderful freebie today with Morphing Rocks And Formations by EmmaAndJordi (though you will need to have an interest in the Minotaur if you are picking up the other free 3d model: Freaky Horns for Minotaur 6 Horns).

Stone Borders is a lovely modular prop set by Merlin Studios, which could be used for many purposes and is heading for my own wishlist. Meanwhile, the Medieval Interior is a new release from Dexsoft-Games that includes 23 props.

The other 16 or so products are all Minotaur-themed, though Genesis 2 SWOLE for the Minotaur 6 is a muscleman that will give the beast a more human (if still extreme) look. For me, the most appealing of the themed releases (and, admittedly, I’m not the target market for any of these) is the Gentle Bull Morph and Textures for Minotaur 6 by Sickleyield. Nice work on this one, and a less aggressive figure who could fit into a broader range of artwork.
