Avatar: Golem Hunter












Sooner or later I had to come up with an Avatar. It's based on a drawing I did years back, only cleaned up and colored.

And just so you know: a Golem is a stone or mud man created by a Rabbi to execute vengance on his enemies. The only way to destroy a Golem is to pull the magical parchment that keeps it alive out of it's mouth. Once this is done, it falls harmlessly to the ground as rubble, sludge, etc. My Golem is wearing business casual. His tie is made from Moss; next best thing to silk.

Moss tie, eh? What are his pants? Don't tell me he isn't wearing any.

hey have you ever met my friend grundy the golem? he's funny. and more than a little blunt. he's as insultive as a kender. his magic talent is he is able to communicate with any living thing... and zombies.

Hans, welcome. And thanks! You're doing some amazing work. I'm inspired. Thanks for sharing your talents with the rest of us. I wish I had a gift for animation design. I fancy myself a character designer, though I'm not sure how much truth there is in it. I'm getting into the children's book market. I know most people think it's a soft option, but there's a need for good art in the kids market and I hope to take some of my animation experience with me into children's books. And, have you visited Toon Club. They're doing some great stuff too (and they're almost all animators or storyboarders). Be seeing you.

Eric the Leet, just a tie. Take it up with the Rabbi who conjured him.

Beth, Never met him, but he sounds like a likeable enough guy. Zombies... creepy. I have no excuse, I just didn't think of it. I guess I need to do a mass e-mail and let everyone know, rather than assuming that you guys will stumble across it by accident.

Ken Chandler said...

Marcelo, Thanks. It's good to finally have an on-line presence. With graduation pending, it might open a door. I'll see you around.

Ken Chandler said...

Thanks Patrick. Kid-friendly monsters and animals are my specialty.
