A fun quick painting done on friday after work. About 3 hours in photoshop with some Lagunitas.
Thanks! I hadn't seen the dnd basilisks. The warhammer forgeworld basilisk model and giant salamanders are what inspired this guy. Cheers!
I don't know of any mythology in which basilisks are multi-legged. Is this a thing going around?
only in my head! I more or less just took the name and ran with it after seeing Forgeworlds basilisk model for warhammer.
this is so dope....keep up the good work
Awesome beyond all reason.
Freaky! I love it!
I like the salamander-like to it, it makes alot of sense. Because basilisk are water-based and such.
Were you inspired by lost planet?
Looks like the world's biggest salamander.
haha yup, that was where I was trying to go, with just a bit of a twist of the fantastical. I figure once his mouth is open its all business.
Love the colour scheme!
How Big is it?
I imagine it as a little bigger than a rhino, maybe a rhino and a half? haha, cheers!
Looks great, good work!
awwwww hes so cute XD
lol, yeah, I really want to paint him with his mouth open though. Thanks!
Beautiful! His expression is amazing!
This is REALLY, REALLY cool...I don't think I've ever seen a basilisk done in an "amphibian" style before. Makes me wonder if it's related to Ye Olde Salamandre. Fantastic work!
Thanks man! I'm a big fan of salamanders, once I saw those giant south east asian ones, my mind was reeling. Cheers!
What an awesome image!! Realy looks like a huge salamander THUMBS UP!!
Looks like those giant salamanders from east asia. Well done!
so sick man very cool
