Sometimes I’m a little weird, and a bit nerdy… I was checking out some of the other participants of this duo-tangle challenge (see my original submission here)… someone titled their post Eye of the Beholder, and my brain when straight to a Beholder, from the role playing game Dungeons & Dragons.
So I started drawing and I came up with this ZIA (zentangle inspired art)… Enjoy 😀 …
Oddly the hardest part was trying to come up with 11 different colors for the eyes… each eye including the big main eye is capable of a different magical ray, so I felt that each eye should have it’s own color.
When I showed this to my geeky husband, he not only liked it but kept commenting on the mushroom-y-ness that it reminded him of… and then he remembered that there is a monster in D&D that looks like a Beholder but is actually a flying fungal ball called a Gas Spore.
I had a lot of fun playing around with tangles and RPG monsters… heehee. 😀
Until next time…
P.S. With the smile and the floating eye, it kind of reminds me of Douglas Adams “Don’t Panic”, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy… heehee.
P.P.S. I created this digital art in MyPaint.
