Construct



Hi! This time the concept is of a creature which is called a "Construct". Constructs resemble more wild animals than humanoids, but are made of pieces of gear, iron, blades, armour and also bits of stone and crystal. On this I tried more for the overall feeling of the machinery and scale. Constructs are also Golems, that according to Jewish folklore, are artificial mythical beings, brought to life through magic. According to the stories, having a Golem as a servant was considered as the most elevated symbol of wisdom and sanctity. The tiny figure near the creature was added for a better sense of scale. Speed painting 2H.
