Inspired by Harry Potter's encounter with the Basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets, I decided to try my luck at creating Basilisk variations. These are major abstractions from the real Basilisk - a green lizard. Although artists have creative license, we do base creations on some foundational knowledge, even if it spring boards off some minor detail.
The original artwork (below) has undergone some colour add ons in Photoshop while using a digital tablet. Most times I like to leave the sketches raw, but couldn't resist the temptation, in this case, to add some finishing touches in colour.
