Eye Tyrant by luvazquez Eye Tyrant by luvazquez
Behold, the Eye Tyrant! I did a quick sketch of a Beholder for an ArtOrder mini-challenge, and I guess I got bit by the Beholder bug, because I felt like I wanted to paint another one, only maybe do a full blown painting instead of another sketch.

I went for more of a mesh of Old School Beholder and the whole 'angry floating skull of doom' that's so popular nowadays. A melding of both, somehow. Fun piece.

omg, that's one of the creepiest looking beholders I've ever seen. Great brushstrokes and atmospheric perspective too. I've never understood why caves look so great that way, it's not natural at all, but it just looks so much better than a cave receeding into darkness.

Anyway, like I said, Awesome beho--*gets snatched away by WotC lawyers*

I'm glad you like. You picked up on something that I've been experimenting with lately, that of focusing a lot more on atmosphere in my work...in fact, my last three images are the result of that.

I'm finding that as long as it sets the mood of the image, you can push certain boundaries i.e: the un-natural lighting in the cave.

We'll see how that holds true in upcoming images.

Thanks for the encouragement. I hope so as well...it's all still experimental at this point, so I'm kinda feeling my way around in the dark lol.

Thanks Shao. I'm definitely working on the Gamma World challenge, but I'm still not sure which one I'm gonna go with. Trying to find a way to combine both maybe?
