'B' is for Basilisk by JustMick 'B' is for Basilisk by JustMick
Starting an A-Z of Fantasy Creatures, this is "B"- Basilisk and what else could I do but draw it how I imagined when reading the HP books

I have "A" somewhere in my sketchbook...

Photoshop

Yeah, how DID that thing wander around in Hogwarts?  And in the pipes?

 

I mean is there really that big of a need for sewage pipes to fit THAT thing?

I always believe that the basilisk is a giant monstrous snake. After all that's why they called it "king of serpents". Oh and thanks for the sketch and I like it. But the wizard is a bit too pale and green.

I meant the wizard the basilisk is staring at in the picture. Look below it on the corner left.

Right so why are you saying thanks for the sketch? 1. It's not a sketch, it's a painting and 2. It wasn't painted for you so why say thanks? this wasn't for you? Also this painting is nearly 2 years old why even critique something that old.

1. I didn't said thanks for sending pictures to me, I was just saying it that it looks much cooler and I like it and glad to see it and 2. Sketch is another word for painting.

Your words : "Oh and thanks for the sketch and I like it." Direct quote. And sketch is completely different from a painting, everyone knows that.

I've never liked the traditional half-chicken image of the basilisk. The HP version is best. Thus so is this.

Your drawing gave me shivers just because it is so good! I love your interpretation of the basilisk, well done. I know it is how you imagined it so there no point in mentioning the differences between the one in the book. And I think you did a terrific job! :heart:

If you read the description its says how I imagined the basilisk to look not how Tom Riddle looks.

This is incredible! I especially loved how you made the Chamber NOT look like it had been repaired by House Elves on a regular basis- it adds a very good atmospheric touch.
