GOLEM - toys and magic by randis GOLEM - toys and magic by randis
The Golem

Kids got their hands on a real magic book, trying to summon a golem using their toys as a base.
I have chosen a less realistic style for this one, tho not too cartoony.
I wanted to have a certain fun factor but also serious elements.
The summoner boy is in a wheel chair, I want to show that despite a handicap he still is the leader here. With his pose and gesture I wanted to give him a more sure expression and take away the feel of a handicap, making the wheel chair looking more like he sit on a trone or something.
The other kids are placed under him, just a small symbolism.

The Kids are nit doing this for the first time probably. What I did not want were overstretched comic poses like WTF IT MOVED!!!
I tried to keep that I little bit more subtle.
The colors are fairly friendly here and the mood turned out fine I think,
It was important to have a friendly image despite all the pentagrams and black magic, golem. I don’t want Satanism.

The creation took me about 1 week. I used some simple 3d geometry for perspective and base, tho most of it is al painted. I will post the original linework later.

Crazy beautiful art, I just found your art. Magnificent
one of the best art pieces I have ever seen....I would like to see a process step for this. Or even a lineart. Cheers!
Love it! Oh, and it looks like the geometry on the floor and in the book is referencing a six pointed star, which in occult symbolism is a symbol of the balance of heavenly and earthly forces "As above, so below". Very nicely done :)
This will be so much better than any game consoles
