"The basalisk is a reptilian monster.  Although it has eight legs, its slow metabolic process allows it only slow movement...the basilisk's major weapon is its gaze by means of which it is able to turn to stone any fleshly creature which meets its glance."  -AD&D Monster Manual

Next up on the Monster Manual parade is the Basalisk.  Just make sure not to meet it's gaze.

Oops....I only have one more picture banked and it isn't even inked yet.  Best get crackin'.
