Burnt at the stake by severeene Burnt at the stake by severeene
Yeah!!! Something more cruel! A knight templar being burnt at the stake. Poor guy...
Drew this during a very boooring French lesson and my friend thought me to be macabre to draw such sceneries. :hmm: She always draws flowers and birds btw...

Pencil on the back of French lesson handout, Photoshop 7. Less than 45 minutes.

May I have your permission to use this for a character profile I have for an RPG?  He's very much based on a Knight Templar and his former-master was burned at the stake.

I like it, also that this time a knight is burned at the stake and not a witch - equal rights for everyone ... usually a knight comes for the rescue ... wonder if a knight then has to be saved by a witch ;)

Since i study medieval history:
Well, Jacques de Molay was burnt on 18th March 1314 and he must have been elder than the guy in my picture at that time. This painting rather refers to the burnings from 1310, where 54 Templars were burnt outside Paris.
But if you see Jacques de Molay in my pic, it's alright! :XD:

A comic book about the Templars? Whoa! I did the same and even wrote a plot, but never managed to finish it!!

So tell me more about thet comic book! Highly interested!! :D

Btw, do you know 'Le troisime testament' (Das dritte Testament, The third Testament)! It's a French comic book which also stars the Templars! Got to check it out!!

It was going to be called "The Last Templar." I got the Idea was reading "Holy Blood Holy Grail" Caleb StClair was the last in the line of Templars that were direct ancestors of the orginal eight Tempars, and he was protecting the Merovingian blodline against an evil secret sect within the Catholic Church. I wish I would have goten this out when I came up with it, because I was dealing with the Templars and the bloodline of Christ years before Dan Brown's "The Davinci Code"came out.

I have some of the old artwork, but the scripts got lost when a power surge fried my old computor. Thanks for the interest!

Seems as we had similar thoughts!!! :-)

My comic book would begin in 1307, when the Templars were arrested, and it would be a quest for the Holy Grail. But not the chalice was in fact the main goal of the quest, but the way itself! In the end it would be discovered that not the Sanc Greal as a material product, but the Sang Real (sang royal = royal blood) was the key to the past, the present and the future.
And i thought the same as Dan Brown's book came out! Damn!!! :dohtwo:

Now that's extremely upsetting!!! I lost most of my script, too, as my computer crashed down!!! More than hundred pages for nothing!! Yet i had kept handwritten notices on those tiny yellow post-its below my pillow!! Fortunately!! :phew:

It seems as if there were some kind of machination against us - if you know what i mean!! :evileyes:
