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.

I actually can not get over this piece I kept trying to scroll down to continue looking over things but just couldn't until I made sure I faved this.  This is just a wonderful piece.
I hadn't actually noticed the boy doing the summoning was in a wheel chair til I read your commentary. It felt like something most over look at first glance. And I think it's that strong presence he has that is over shadowing the wheelchair, his ability with magic overshadowing his handicap quite completely.

Love all the little details in this. I think my favorite part are the two cuddly looking birds on the balcony. :3 And those panties on the clothes line! haha!

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!
jdpalmquist Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013
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 :)

Do you mind if I write a short story to go with it? Keeping in the vein of what you yourself wrote, I mean.

Hi there, love your excellent magical artwork, beautiful stuff, thank you.

I was just wondering if you had heard of a group called magicandfantasy they seem to be in need of some support and I was searching for fantasy artists like yourself that may wish to join or submit work to them, or contribute in any other way, thank you very much, Mike.

Amazing! I get the impression that it is merely curiosity coming from these kids, like scientists observing and critiquing their little project. It's very interesting, a story all on its own.

You are an amazing artist. I would NEVER be able to do something this amazing in a million years. Even the smallest details like the symbols and writing in the book are crazy. Great job.
