Origami Golem by AustenMengler Origami Golem by AustenMengler
A 30 minute creature design done for the Daily Spitpaint speed painting group. The theme was "Origami" and although it's an old topic I couldn't resist so here he is!

He's around 8 ft tall, a monstrous construct of folded, twisted and torn paper, his long razor sharp whips slashing his foes.

Might tighten this up a bit in future, will keep you posted.

A nifty concept. If you're looking for a way to improve it then you could further emphasize the way that this thing is dangerous. Make the parts that it uses to slash people look bloodier, toughened and dangerous. At the moment its weapons don't really look too menacing.

Squirm in your torture as your life is picked, piece by piece, until nothing but bone remains! My flimsy scalpels shall never tire, my unending paper shall persevere over your frail life! 
And you will know...
To fear the paper...
