Rabbi Judah Loew unmakes the Golem.

For *pallanoph's Contest, Theme 1: Myth Reimagined.
I honestly don't know why I chose the golem. It just popped into my head and I ran with it. ;)

When I originally heard the story of the golem, I got the impression of this sinister being, almost on par with Frankenstein's monster. Not that it was evil, but that it wasn't 'natural' and therefore it frightened people. When I researched the story this time, it all sounds so much more benign. ;p But I wanted to keep the darkness of my original impression, so my golem is monstrous in form, but helpless and bewildered by its destruction.

Woah! :dance: Awesome pose in the golem, with that sort of blind gesture he has going. Really effective! Also love the way you've handled the sort of smoke/dust he's emitting as he disintegrates. The way you've handled the rabbi's robes is also really awesome and feels really dimensional. :D
Thanks so much for entering! :aww: I'm going to submit it to the entries folder right away.

So glad you like! :)

When I originally heard the story of the golem, I got the impression of this sinister being, almost on par with Frankenstein's monster. Not that it was evil, but that it wasn't quite 'normal' and therefore it frightened people. When I researched the story this time, it all sounds so much more benign. ;p But I wanted to keep the darkness of my original impression, so my golem is monstrous in form, but helpless and bewildered by its destruction.

Thanks very much for including this in the contest. :D And of course, for hosting the contest! :la:

I'm so pleased, I usually have a war with hands and feet, and these just went along so neatly. :D

They are the trickiest bits sometimes. I usually have to refer to my own hands/feet in the mirror just to get the general forms.

What the crap? :O_o:
The nerve of some people. :no: But that was back in 2008. I trust common sense prevailed?

Then you came along and here we are with an article. ^^
But hey. I hope so. ;)

You know... I generally consider myself a liberal. But don't mess with my boys [and girls] in uniform. :fight:
