This is a green basilisk, not be confused with their terrifying mythological counterpart. The non-fictional basilisk is just as fantastic though as it can walk on water, earning the nickname "the Jesus Christ lizard."
For Studio Concepts & Practices, created in watercolor and colored pencil on watercolor board.
Referenced from a photo taken by Robbie Labanowski.

Following Michael Ende's descriptions in the book, I decided to redesign Falkor the Luckdragon from The Neverending Story.
Falkor's appearance is described as lionlike with fur and a mixture of pink and white scales, and red eyes -- almost like an albino Oriental dragon.

"I love my species."
-David LevineThere are multiple levels of interesting when it comes to people. Sometimes you love them, sometimes you hate them, sometimes you find them terribly confusing.
I have to admit, I'm sometimes reluctant when it comes to leaving my comfy spot behind for social interaction.
Public places are easy sources for people-watching and life-sketching. An unusual fondness for people warms up when I observe and draw them -- It's difficult to explain.

For my Hobbit design, I decided to pull out the acrylics for extra painting practice.
