I know this is a little late and i'm not sure if this was ever suggested before. Since the game is on top down isometric, we couldn't really see much details or should i say much of the effort of the great artist went to waste. I just had a thought what about on the bestiary page, you can have a 3D model of said creature that you met before! and you can even rotate them! 

 

is such feature already present in the game?

There's a bestiary, but if it's anything like Pillars, it'll be handdrawn art rather than 3D models for the monsters.

Josh already talked about that some time ago. It's drawn images of monsters just like Pillars1 and won't include 3D models in bestiary.

alright. thanks. wondering what's the reason for that. if those creatures are beautifully designed, it would go to waste without able to see them on first person.

I think it's to do with the bestiary being part of the journal, and wanting a journal 'feel' - guess the Watcher is an artist too ;)  The sketches were really good in PoE.

I too would like to be able to view the models when I'm not attacking them with a fireball.  Perhaps a model viewer could be modded.

I concur; I really enjoy the sketches a lot, but would like to be able to see the 3D models more clearly.

Don't think I've noticed that, probably because I don't often check the Bestiary. But I have noticed erratic behaviour more generally for the Cyclopedia.
