The three terrifying Basilisks which feature in the final episode of The Witcher’s second season, are some of the deadliest creatures our hero has ever encountered. Developing the look of them was a year-long journey for Cinesite’s team. Despite being assembled from a range of creatures‘ anatomy, the Basilisks needed to look and move cohesively, with the animators carefully integrating them with the stunning on set fight choreography. On top of all that, they required fur, feathers AND scales – quite the challenge!
