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 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 :)

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.
