My concept art for the Dungeons and Dragons Beholder. This is a personal piece I did a while ago. The idea was that each eye and eyestalk would be different sizes and shapes. The central eye on a beholder emits a cone of Anti-Magic. Beholders are trademarks of Dungeons and Dragons and Wizards of the Coast.
Then I thought maybe people would like it if I took a cover back to the roots of the game and really gave them an old school flavor.
So I did this, instead.
Knights of Doom by Vladimir Kapustin. These look amazing: I love the simple shapes and colours and the sweet doom skull background.
These could just as easily be golems and stone warriors as a crew of mercenary ex-knights who travel the world looking for adventure, profit, and revenge on the shadowy figure who ruined their lives a few years back during that battle at Kopor Keep.
- Mathew out!
