Second Bird Golem by ursulav Second Bird Golem by ursulav
The second bird golem fell in love with a statue. It was very beautiful, but it could not love him back.



...yeah, no clue. That was the story I got, direct all complaints to the management.

I love the expression here. Only you could make something so weird looking so endearing and melancholy.

Go Golem go!

Loving statues is a cold affair, their affections should not be taken for granite.

Looks great.

This really reminds me of the Skekses creatures in the movie "The Dark Crystal"! He's a bit spooky looking, but I believe his story has won me over. I especially like the different textures in the background and on his wings.
