It goes on with 'B' for Basilisk. The Basilisk turned up first in one of Platons stories. He described the Basilisk as a huge snake. If you look into her eyes the death will visit you immediately. In the medieval age there are also stories of the Basilsk beeing able to shape-shift. But who knows... I mean, you can't look at it. And if you do, you don't have the possibility to tell it anyone.It was more difficult, than I had thought it to be. I wanted him to look really nasty and evil, but he should not loose his dignity in all the nastyness - after all he's still a frightening, gigantic beast. One shouldn't loose his respect to this monster.So I started on trying out with mor black, hart edges to make him more forcefull-looking. And I experimented with the coloures. I wanted him to look dirty, except for a few parts, like his breast-scales... they should look neat.Well, I think I gave this creature a quite fierce and evil look... as he wanted it. :)
