Is a undead or just a mage?

it's just wounded in its main eye in such a way that it is blind so it's not undead and a beholder is not a mage since most of its abilities stem from its eyes...though this begs the question: does a beholder with a blind main eye still have the ability to generate its anti-magic cone from said eye?

But they can become mages if they do some weird ritual sacrificing their main eye as tribute.

That's why my question though.

Something tells me a blind beholder would be the most bitter, malevolent thing you could possibly come across.  (also awesome job! it made me sit back and imagine for awhile)  x)

Fantastic. Everything a beholder should be. Well, not blind. But it makes a great shot.

Very good painting, the gums look good and shiny but I think some more drips of saliva would be good too.
