I had so much fun designing this scroll. It’s in the style of Albrecht Durer’s prayer book for Emperor Maximillian. The first image is my scroll, the second was my main piece of inspiration. Yes, I replaced Jesus Christ with a rapier fighter and turned his disciples into his adversaries. The latin text near his mouth reads “Come at me, Bro.” The larger figure (in mine) is supposed to be Nicoletto Giganti, giving our champ the thumbs up. Baron Lorenzo Petrucci composed the words which inspired this gruesome piece.
