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.
This is now my desktop background.

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 ;)

I almost didn't look at this closer but it truly is superb for such a cruel death.

Ow! That's awful, but the art is superb. :)
severeene's avatar
Yep, history's sometimes awful...and these episodes should not be forgotten. Thank you for your nice words. :-)

Cuanto más clara es la luz, más oscuras son las sombras.
Piu' splendente e' la luce, piu' oscure saranno le tenebre.

Što je svetlo jače, senke su tamnije.
Quanto mais clara é a luz, mais escura é a sombra.
Hoe feller het licht des te donkerder de schaduw.
Hoe feller it ljoch hoe tjusterder it skaad.
Com més clara és la llum, més fosques són les ombres.
Cu cât e mai strălucitoare lumina, cu atât mai întunecate sunt umbrele.

very cool. I especially like this because it's not some sombre maiden like you'd expect of someone being burned at the stake.

Thanks!! :heart:
