Eternal Seven » Creature

This dragon-type creature is both deaf and blind in the traditional sense. However, the spikes all over its head serve as amplifying lenses for any vibrations in it’s environment. Each spike has a crystalline structure inside that is bell shaped and surrounded by nerve tissue. Because the spikes face in all directions the creature can literally create a 3d image of its environment by feeling the vibration within its spikes. It can detect the heart beat of another creature from within 100 feet, and it can feel the flutter of a butterfly wing.

Acid the deaf and blind dragon

These are among the most lethal and mean creatures you can ever run into. They are territorial but generally attack anything they can digest, and they can digest just about anything organic. They are particularly short tempered against other bipedal creatures, and especially humans. These creatures grow to be about 12 feet long and stand erect about 4 feet tall. Even the biggest creatures never reach a body mass of over 150 lbs though because their bones (and spikes) are hallow. Their tail accounts for two thirds of their body length and is tipped with a stinger connected to a massive gland holding sulfuric acid. The stinger can be used to inject the acid into the prey, or as an attack defense mechanism by spraying the acid at an enemy or using the entire spiked stinger as a maul. Their main claws are normally used for piercing and holding prey down while the jaws of the creature are powerful enough to shatter every bone in the human body with ease even before it reaches adult size.

About the drawing: This was made for the COW # 235 Deaf Blind Acid-Spitter challenge at Concept Art. I made the pencil sketch which was then modified in Photoshop.

The creature depicted below is an infernal orb, the highest order of the powerful beholder species. Beholdrs are almost purely magic driven demonic entities, their flesh is vulnerable to standard weapons though and they can be killed rather easily with basic weapons, if they’re caught offgaurd. Beholders are similar to dragons in the sense that they never stop growing, though with age their rate of growth does slow. It is speculated that the growth of an individual beholder slows mainly due to limitations in the food supply but very little is known about these creatures for a fact.

Red Hot Doom - Infernal Orb - Beholder

The infernal orb is the most infamous of the beholder species, it usually incinerates anything in sight which it might even consider to be edible. These beholders are territorial and extremely agressive when encroached upon. Feasting on the charred flesh of their victims is certainly one of the infernal orb’s favorite ways to spend time. Specimens have been observed slowly consuming comparatively tiny prey for months. It has been widely speculated that the Beholders consume the souls of their victims and the flesh, while tasty, is of little value to them. These rumors are also unconfirmed. A few of the most powerful sorcerers in the world have established pacts with beholders and many telepaths can communicate with them, but the risk is usually not worth the benefits obtained through such an alliance. The people who have communicated with any of the beholders, even the most base of the species, claim that these creatures are extremely intelligent. The sorcerers who have made pacts with the beholders primarily do it because of the massive magic powers commanded by these creatures.

Similar to dragons, beholders tend to have an affinity for certain elements. But, unlike dragons, a single beholder can command any element and may have an affinity for more than one. Of the sorcerers who have been insane enough to forge pacts with beholders, it is usually because the sorcerer has been trying to gain access to certain elemental power which is otherwise unattainable by him/her.
