The Eye of the Beholder!

***tier-3-top.shtml*** beholder

Ever see the movie - "Big Trouble in Little China" - with Kurt Russell? It's pretty cool if you haven't. And if you did - you'll surely remember this monster... the Beholder!

Actually, this wild-looking creature is popular in the Dungeons & Dragons RPG series, as well as in video games and other media. A head with and eye - and then some more eyes... yup - this is a fun lesson indeed! :-)

Eye can't wait to get started!

First Step - A Circle for a MONSTROUS-LOOKING Head!

Take any circle from any other lesson - add the cross for easier placement of the features (eyes, mouth, etc.) - and that's all there really is to mapping out your drawing ahead of time.

Here it is...

The green circles of course - represent all the little tiny eyes that squirm off the sides, kind of like snakes... kind of like - Medusa! Hmmm... this would be a good start to a Medusa lesson come to think of it.

Well, let's keep going...



Second Step - Draw Your Monster, Step by Step

OK - put on your "creativity cap" and let's hit the paper. Seriously - there are TONS of different ways this monster can look. As simple as an eye over a circle - you've really got a lot of freedom as to just how wild-looking you can make yours.

Bigger eyes - more eyes - more horns - more teeth - sharper teeth - more 'drool' ! - different color... the list goes on and on and on...

Drawing time! :-)

While not the 'prettiest' site by any means - this cartoon beholder was one of those drawing lessons that's just plain fun to bring into view. I hope you enjoyed it - and further more - I hope this inspired you to make even more cool-looking monsters of your own!

Fantastic job. :-)
