Chrysophylax by basilisk113 Chrysophylax by basilisk113
The name comes from the dragon from the story "Father Giles of Ham" by J.R.R.Tolkien. The runes are taken from the Dragon Script from the book "Dragonology." This tribal dragon design is just another piece to add to my dragon art collection...

At the request of :iconduskblue:, the artist who made the original design is :iconrg571:

hey thanks for the faves and the watch! FYI, I haven't really done tribal designs in a while. I just do whatever I feel like, haha. So don't expect too much of this sort of stuff from me.

thanks haha, I'm not too comfortable drawing actual dragons and putting in detail like scales and shading, so this is the easy way out for me while still being able to do art on things I love...

I've watched the film (Advent Children) quite often and I've read a lot about the game. I'm playing Crisis Core at the moment and I've played Kingdom Hearts (where some characters also appear) :)

I have Kingdom Hearts and I've seen Advent Children once (Japanese with English subtitles). You're from Germany right? Is FFVII a popular thing among you and your friends?

um, it's an enormous snake that kills any creature that makes eye contact with it (not to mention an extremely venomous bite). Haven't you seen Harry Potter 2?

i have a book on dragon and fantasy art and it says basilisks have different forms they also have 2 different abilities lethal breath and stare their gaze will turn you to stone and their breath will kill you in many myths the creature is a mix between a serpent and a chicken in fantasy worlds its a serpent with eight legs and in harry potter its a large serpent with a gaze that kills

:iconbasilisk113:
basilisk113 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2008
Well there are probably different versions. I also have a book on dragons and other mythical beasts where it says that the basilisk is a snake less than a foot long with the lethal stare, toxic breath, and extremely powerful venom. It says that the creature's natural enemies are the weasel and the cock. It also says that basilisk ashes can be scattered in temples to prevent venomous spiders from weaving webs. I just picked the name as a reference to a snake with the killer gaze.
