A Beholder enemy for The Spell of Mastery.
Thanks! I appreciate that you both like it.
CELS - You may well be right. I tried to create dark rocky grooves with brighter and more visible spikes protruding from the creature, as if it had evolved in cavernous environments and was trying o blend into rocks. I know SNV wanted the eyes to be very different and visible to be able to cast various different effects, so I tried to create a variety there that might match a bunch of different spells while limiting the palette. So I made those the most bright and colorful parts.
I've seen a lot of people pixel beholders for this website, and I think this is the best one I've seen so far :)
I do feel like it's a bit dark and would benefit from more contrast, but it's hard to say without seeing its surroundings.
