At a first glance i thought the mountain behind the creature was part of it's body and i was like daaaamn it's like a dragon beholder. Then i looked closely and i understood the image better.
Oh wow! I somehow missed that. Wonderfully done, and the monster is quite scary. I love the teal-magenta-gold triade.
The shading on the Beholder is very cool.
At first glance it looked like a monster version of my cat sitting down begging for food. If you shift the mountain thing to the right, it will give greater contrast to the floaty monster.
Perhaps it would not hurt to add 1 or 2 colors to each layer of background because it looks very flat and 'rushed/unpolished/unfinished'
The background seems unpolished to me, Love the beholder though.
Not really, why?
Seems slightly unfinished. Run out of time?
Very cool! I like how the teeth texture extends to its beard!
