Beholder Golem by calamarain Beholder Golem by calamarain
Inspired by reading the Wikipedia article about the Dungeons and Dragons creature, the Beholder. Also by fighting similar creatures in Angband and Nethack - I decided a cybernetic/mechanical form of the creature would be kinda cool. This is one of the Bryce works I'm most proud of - usually I do scenes and simpler objects, so this is a change for me.

Think of it as a talented wizard's attempt to mimic the beholder with steel, magic and ever-staring eyes. Background and Beholder done in Bryce, everything put together in the GIMP. Enjoy!

Now that's an interpretation of the beholder I'd NEVER have thought of. A mechanical creature, with so many eyes staring - truly imaginative.

Not to say it isn't already great, but if I had to think of one thing that would make it even better - if the eyes were different colours to imply the different powers each one has.

Mmmm. I considered that, but I was happy with it as it was :)

Bloody awesome :wow: Love how you designed the eye-stalks and how they're all looking in different directions. The lack of a mouth gives it that cold "I'm afraid I can't do that, Dave" feel. And grand work reflecting the light off those little blue motes on the metal, very cool effect :worship:
