Well, it’s very near completion. There is a suggestion of scales now, especially on the basilisk’s head. A bit more shading was added, as well as the details of the eye. The only thing left to do is to take some time off, then look at it again to see if there’s anything I want to add.
The basilisk definitely shows up as the focal point as planned. (His eye is the real focal point.)
When I was working on the frogs, it occurred to me that they were so busy and colorful that the basilisk might not be able to compete. However, his comparative size and bright blue-green skin makes him stand out from the crowd surrounding him.
