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!
