Commission - Artifex by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Artifex by Shimmering-Sword
A commission for :iconflamefang-of-arnor: ~Flamefang-of-Arnor

Artifexes are small magicaly powered contructs, similar in concept to a golem. Runed nodes hold together and manipulate joints. They stand around 4 feet tall and several can combine to create a larger form.

Oh me likie!!! Can I create a 3D model out of it?! I have been working on an uber complex, hair tearing, ass stomping model for the past couple of months and something nice and simple but elegant with an established design might get my creative juices flowing again.

Should probably be fine, though you may want to ask ~Flamefang-of-Arnor for permission also.

I actually thought this was some super-advanced robot when I first saw it. Then again, any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology.

It's a common reversal, but it's true. Any story where magic is reliable and understandable logically will eventually become fairly modern. Lightbulbs replaced by light spells, metallurgy accomplished through ferromancy, mass transit made possible by flight spells, stuff like that. Heck, golems are already basically magical robots.
