Oh, nice to see a basilisk here :).

The picture looks correct (as far as you can say this for a legendary monster :D ), in the pictures I remember the basilisk looked a lot like a giant monster bird. With parts from a dragon.

No, I won't add more body shapes, band shirts or sports trikots. Really.

Well, the basilisk was supposed to be more reptilian, the creature Janina is reffering to is a Cockatrice, basically a giant rooster. But these two monsters often get confused with eachother, because they share the ability to petrify their victims with their gaze, just like mythical Gorgons.

But this is a picture of a basilisk:

Maybe the color in the contest entry is misleading... the body could look more dragon like.
