    Chow 101 :: The Spanish High Inquisitor

    Chow 101 :: The Spanish High Inquisitor

    ROUND #101

    THE SPANISH HIGH INQUISITOR
    -------------
    DESCRIPTION

    Historical Fiction
    Spanish High Inquisitor Father Domingo Cristobal

    “The Society of Jesus was established by the papacy in 1540 as a very special "fighting unit" at the total and exclusive disposal of the Roman Pope -- whoever he might be. From their beginnings, the Jesuits were conceived in a military mode. Soldiers of Christ, they were given only two purposes: to propagate the religious doctrine and the moral law of the Roman Catholic Church as proposed and taught by the Roman Pope, and to defend the rights and prerogatives of that same Roman Pope. Purely spiritual and supernatural purposes. And specifically Roman Catholic.”
    --From The Jesuits, by Malachi Martin

    Father Domingo Cristobal’s faith has never failed him. Years of Jesuit training has made him a stoic man, stern but loving with his order, loyal to his superiors and an unrelenting pursuer of the heretical Protestants. He is used to applying any method necessary unflinchingly in purging the world of sins of the flesh, mind and soul. There is no question about God’s Will.

    And yet… a shadow lurks in the back of his mind. Unanswered, unrecognized, quietly probing, and exploring – what if Holy See is wrong?

    Nice.

    This is really different from anything I've tried before. Good challenge for my first CHOW. Good pick, Oregano. Spicy.

    Brotha Oregano! Awesome topic.

    I already miss everyone from Revelations. It was an amazing experience. I can't wait toC-YA at the next event, or maybe an Illustrator's Open or whatever.

    Trying to give some extra time for the topic because with Revelations the new topic and poll got posted late. So, CHOW 101 & 102 will overlap a little bit.

    CHOW 101 Matias

    Hey guys, sweet topis, crazy times in history!! Anyways, heres my initial sketchin. I had a look around trying to find what clothing was around and am still unsure if its appropriate.
    Chow 101 :: The Spanish High Inquisitor

    The major thing Im having second thoughts about is the graphical pool of blood at his feet, just got that naggin feeling its been done a bajillion times before but cant remember where from, grrr hate it when you have an idea that your not sure if its something youve seen and cant remember or an actual idea.

    Let me know what you guys reckon!

    Cheers
    Mat

    Mine too. I *SO* envisioned John Cleese in his inquisitor uniform storming in a house the moment I read it....

    Now I need to get that out of my head if I end up having time for this....

    Here's some stuff I found with a quick search that might inspire:

    I'm having a hard time finding specific outfits (curse you, internet, who only has an eye for modern dress!) but these should give you the general idea... Not a lot in the way of armour, but plenty of malice!

    I'm posting this early because I want to get as much input as I can on this one. Gonna work my butt off! >O That, and I'm going to try to paint it without line art. :/ So... this is going to be hard...

    Anyway, here's the primary sketch just to get the idea... (It came to me so fast that I had to get it down really quickly).

    You can kind of see my notes on the side... anyway, yeah, any advice would be awesome.
