D&D NPC: Beholder

Recommended Posts

That is a WONDERFUL creation, AND BEAUTIFULLY painted & based. I would say that it was time well spent; re, aside from being an OUTSTANDING piece, it is one of a kind. VERY WELL DONE indeed!

While my personal preference leans more towards the more recent WotC designs, this is one of the best looking old school style beholders I've seen.

The base and paint job really sell it too. Well done!

Yes.  Yes, I like the Hell out of it.  It's even creepier than the usual specimens with the bared gums/teeth, and the eyes are perfect--as is the skin.

He's fantastic. Really well done, and I love the extra attention you paid the eyes. They really pop.

That's a great looking beholder.    I like that the eyes are all different colors.  Great paint job on the skin/hide.

      In the country of the blind, the saying goes, the one-eyed man is king. Certainly when venturing into the obscure unknown of space, the monocular Illyrians are as good as any human, despite a completely different evolution. Their quick regeneration and centrally-located brain-analogue allow them to survive injuries a human could not, while their alien metabolism means resource competition between human and Illyrian is minimal. 

      Here is one brave planetary explorer on a rugged rocky ringed planet. It appears extensively cratered, but the presence of atmosphere and weather should have worn the features down...



      Well, that answers that! 

       
      Distant evolutionary cousins, perhaps? Or just convergence? 

       
      These native life forms are unused to creatures with eyestalks like theirs that can move about freely on the surface! 


      The eye-worms are unused eyestalks from a Wizkids Beholder--they come with a set each of Eyebeam Eyes and Regular Eyes. Waste not!
      They were inspired by this pulpy artwork--not mine, all credit to the original artist.

      I created a little Graveyard.
      The Crypt and the Raven are resin models from Minimonsters, the Skeleton rising from the grave is 02043 from Reaper.
      The Tombstones and Fence are from the Reaper Bones III Graveyard Set.
      The pathway was made with Milliput and I used the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Rollerpin on it.
       
      Enjoy!

      For my Children of the Night Project I'm building a Gothic style Undead army with some Demon allies.
       
      Here is the Necropolis Command Group I will use as a Command for a regiment later.

      Hi all!  With the year nearly at its end, this seemed like a great time to share a comparison project to reflect on this past year's growth.

      A little over a year ago a painted up my first Beholder, and last month I painted another.  I was particularly proud of the first so it's interesting to see a side-by-side a year apart.
       

       
      More Below the Spoiler:
       
      It's always fun to compare two similar models that have been painted with time in between.  I'm always impressed by how much I can grow in this hobby in such a short amount of time.  I only painted my first skeleton a little over two years ago.  My confidence in layering has improved and it is now my go-to method of painting.  Drybrushing and Washes are now reserved for specific effects and textures.  My speed has increased, and I feel more comfortable adding freehanded details.

      I'm proud of the growth I've had this past year and look forward to the improvements next year brings.  And these guys will be looking forward as well.  And backwards.  And sideways.  Always watching.
       
      How have you improved this year?

      Hi there.  I've got a boney baddie for you all today.  I was disappointed by the official mini offerings for a Skull Lord (a skeletal warrior with 3 heads), and it seemed like the perfect candidate for a bit of conversion.  A few citadel skulls later and...

       
      For the observant viewer, you'll notice the Skeletal Champion's original head at the bottom of the bone pile.  His skull was a bit too bulky compared to the citadel skulls and the sculpt didn't really leave enough room for three heads so I had to cut away some of the shoulder armor.
       

       
      All said, this was a pretty simple conversion and will make for a fun fight in the future.
