Illustration Friday - "Scales" No.3

A third scaly friend
or fiend
The Cockatrice
or Basilisk
a rooster's egg (huh?!)
hatched by a viper or a toad,
noted for it's vile breath (hey cockatrice mouth!)
and its petrifying gaze,
only capable of being killed by its own horrific reflection
or weasel
(look, I don't make this stuff up!).

Here's a red alternative

Nice illustration, I like the style of letters and such, only suggestion i could make was add some color and what not.

nicely done; the description makes it most intriguing
