Ocular Overlord

Here's a pic that I drew for my new monster book.  I'm pretty proud of it.  I know it's amateurish, but I think its still pretty cool.  I have other more talented artists too...   I just can't help myself.  :)

Let me know what you think.

Better than anything I can do. I like it.

As an artist and designer by trade, 'amateurish' isn't the word I would use. 'Stylized' is more like it, and I like the style! I'd love to see more like this.

Erin said...

Yeah, I like it, too. Though 'ocular overlord' is a mouthful...

Oddly enough, I spent some time over the weekend mulling over names for a beholder that weren't "beholder:"

* Sight-monger
* Eye-slayer
* Eye-biter
* Davis' spare (so I got silly toward the end)

I like it! Also, did you recently redeco? This place is looking snazzy. I'm diggin' the blog header.

Jim said...

@Simon -- thank you.
@Gaptooth -- thank you very much. I've never been called stylized before. :)
@Erin -- Thanks. Yeah. Just a play on "Eye Tyrant"
@Jay -- Thanks. I did. I hated to see "Temple of the Frog" go, but I liked the graphic from the DnD Coloring Book so much, I had to use it.

I like the picture, I aslo like the name, I've been using a simular name for my beholder replacements.

I kinda like occular overlord--or maybe something all 50s monster comics: Occulus: The Evil Eye!

I think you've done a darn fine job.

IANAA(rtist), but I do like looking at pictures.

Composition is good. Linework clean. Nice use of tessellation on the plates/skin/scales to indicate spheroid shape.

If the stylistic choice is deliberate that's a sweet evocation of *really* old school monster art. Your Eye Horror would be quite at home in an OD&D booklet.
