Kirishitan Girl by Pinakes Kirishitan Girl by Pinakes
This image is mainly done about a year ago, although I've forgotten about it until very recently since I was reminded of it by the client :P, so I just whipped up the remaining work (very little) and call it done.

I was approached by amakusa64 www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=15… on pixiv with invitation to join his project "切支丹ガール" (kirishitan girl) illustration collection artbook. I had to wiki the term kirishitan and flash read on early Christianity in Japan. Thanks to that I learned that the early work there was done by the Jesuits. It just happened that my high school was Jesuit as well, one that bears the name of Loyola himself (like tons of others I bet). This coincidence got me interested. The rest of the story: I basically slapped the symbols related to the order on the character ... a little blatantly perhaps lol. I'm sure people who are in or were in a Jesuit institution are going to recognize them pretty fast :)

This is the project site: amakusa46.com/
The first volume has actually been published and can be purchased from amakusa46.stores.jp/ - My pic is not inside there though. It's supposed to be included in the future 2nd volume.
