Right, I just had to get this out of my head, done it in the past half hour and its getting late now. Strangely I was in work yesterday and one of the kids wanted to watch Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets....terrible I know, being paid to watch HP.:boogie: I didnt think much of him in the book but I simply love Fawkes in the film...even though he does look a bit too wonky at times, but I think that adds to the overall thingy. This is the best bit in the film hee hee

*whistles Fawkes theme*

phew, its done and now I can live

Basilisk is now blind, without big yellow eyes.

I love Fawkes' wings and tail feathers. the colors are really nice, too.

I thought Fawkes looked weird in the movie too. I, like several others, am a fan of HP. :)

I love this, I could tell what it was right away from the preview. Big fan of Harry Potter, I simply devour the books, I can never seem to finish them fast enough. I like the movies too, though they're slightly dissapointing, they just change and cut out too much, should've made them 3 hours long, like LOTR.

Nah I love the bit when he's poking his eyes out, shame its in silouhette, but harry would be dead I suppose if he looked. Yes, Mr Isaacs was good, but I'm not biased in that way;)

Bah, well, they'd never get away with gore in the films themselves 'unfortunately'

*That's* how the Basilisk should look. Whatever happened to the large eyes eh? Like some kinda comedy in the film - All happening off-screen with comical silouettes, "Oh no, the Basilisk has lost it's eyes!" , something along those lines.
Looks a lot nastier in your drawings, good good. Fawkes was great, love his theme ;) Like the tail feathers!

I imagined the thing with enormous eyes, glowing, with a big flat face, and more snakeish-looking. And the chamber is a lot smaller and claustrophobic, not a glorified sewer:rage:. 'Your bird may have blinded the baslilisk...but it can still HEAR YOU!':o Looking at it now it looks a bit too much H.R. Giger-ish, with all the nostrils.

Heehee, thanks a lot:D the Harry Potter films have got some weird concept designers, though they gave the basilisk a crown, which its supposed to have, but your'e right, both looked key.

thanks again

Fantastic! I love the sketchy look to this - and I can't believe it took you half and hour!? That's good goin'! Fawkes looks cool, especially that tail - could spin round and smack that Basilisk in the face. ;) This Basilisk also looks a lot scarier than the sock puppet in the film. ;D

my god you still up!?:o. Aargh, no you dont know how much I needed to get this out of my system, had the fawkes tune in my head since yesterday:p the basilisk in the film is terrible, and looks 'exactly' like godzilla (the crappy 1998 film I mean)
