Golem Girl

...and then I had this idea about a fantasy brothel setting, and it started hammering at my brain like death on a stick. Where does the Unseelie Court go to unwind? The best little whorehouse in fairyland, that's where! It has everything! Sex! Weirdness! Humor! Pathos! Really creepy dark freaky stuff I'm not willing to draw or even think about too closely!

So now I'm doodling supernatural prostitutes. Yeah. All those years of learning algebra and slaving with a protractor because my math teachers swore I'd need it later and four years of college writing papers on the dynamics of hunter-gatherer societies, and what do I do with myself? I draw fantasy hookers.

God, I love my life.

Anyway, this chick's a golem girl. She's made of animate clay, indestructible, immensely strong, and feels neither pleasure, pain, fear, or boredom, making her rather well suited for the job she's found herself in, particularly when weird nameless things from the back of beyond are feelin' freaky and something flesh and blood would be in a lot of trouble. She's extremely old, having been created by a rabbi who long since met a bad end. Golems traditionally have the Hebrew word "Emet" (truth) written on their foreheads, and can be rendered inanimate by erasing the E, so it spells "Met" (death.)

Being mute and apparently emotionless, of questionable sentience, I nevertheless suspect a certain quiet pathos to the golem girl. I bet she gardens without anybody ordering her to. I gave her big honkin' feet because she's basically an animate statue, and if you've ever tried doing anything with clay, you always wind up having to give them a giant base or they fall over if you breathe on them.

I need another fantasy world idea like I need a nailgun to the temporal lobe, so I have no idea if the supernatural brothel will get fleshed out at all, but at least for the day, I'm intrigued.

This is, more or less, how I envisioned the Golem Girl would look.
Again, surprisingly excellent story, and a cute little character.

This is no exception.
Fav'ing! ^^

Lol on the description. And nice job drawing the girl; she is cute.

I read a work you did, and it's nice.

The word would look a lot better if you actually wrote it in hebrew, I thinks. :)

I'd forgotten the golem girl was so gorge-mous. :-)
I'm so excited you've picked these up again!

Oooh, she's pretty...and all right, a little on the sexy side. I don't think I'm allowed to be attracted to your art Like That, though.

She's so wonderful! I really like her. You'd get extra points, though, if you wrote "Emet" in hebrew.

As a sculptor of clay, I truly appreciate this one :lmao:--and of course, the description just makes it. This idea definitely needs to be fleashed out--all puns intended!

If there is one thing you never seem to lack it is creativity and originality; so as usual, amazing art and concept.

"She was a daughter of Sitting Bull, that wooden indian dame.
Told old Coo-Liger Squattin' Heifer was her name.
Coo-Liger, Whooo! When he tried to hold her many charms,
Coo-Liger, he got splinters in his arms."

From Homer & Jethro's parody of "Cawliga"

Wow, cool! I remember that old golem myth. Way to go, expanding on it! She looks kinda cute. ^_^

Golem hooker? She must entertain a rather select group of clientele(sp?). I suppose even rock elementals need some lovin', eh?

Although, she does remind of this character from the game Planescape: Torment named Dolora, who was, surprisingly, a golem and, amazingly, worked at a brothel. Though this wasn't your typical brothel; it was designed around slating Intellectual Lusts (as its name so implies).

Maybe do other kinds of golems, like a metal golem.
