    Chow 156 :: Joan of Arc

    Chow 156 :: Joan of Arc

    ROUND #156 :: Joan of Arc
    DESCRIPTION

    Jeanne d'Arc

    Or Joan of Arc. Probably one of the most famous historical figures of all time, Joan really needs little introduction. But briefly: Joan of Arc was born a peasant girl in 1412 France and became a military leader who persuaded the King, Charles VII, she had divine right to expel the English from Northern France. After victories at Orleans and Patay she failed to take Paris and was captured by the Burgundians and sold to the English. She was tried for witchcraft and heresy, and supported by a tribunal of French Ecclesiastics who were in league with the English, she was burned at the stake in Rouen in 1431 aged just 19.

    But for further information on her there is always Wikipedia:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_of_Arc

    http://archive.joan-of-arc.org/joano...biography.html

    One of the interesting things about Joan is we know so much about her, certainly after she came to the 'authorities' attention. In fact the whole of her trial is documented almost word for word. However, don't feel restricted to presenting her in medieval attire. Feel free to experiment with her outfit and time period but that is not a strict requirement. Interpret her as you will.

    you would not be considered a fool to think it's space marine joan, but it's not - it's steam punk joan of arc. I figured that every man and his dog will produce a scantily clad joan so I'm going in the opposite direction with the least form fitting suit of armor known to man, it's practically a mechanical fat suit!

    This is an initial sketch if anyone is keen to critique anatomy my ears are well and truly open, let me have it!

    great topic! not sure if i'll be able to get something finished but here's a sketch of an idea. i was thinking maybe it'd be interesting to depict joan with charred/burnt armor.

    My idea was a future Joan of Arc guided by the spirit of Joan of Arc of the past. I'm still working out the idea but here's a design sketch to start with - I'm glad I'm getting a little faster at this, maybe I'll actually finish this one *crossing fingers*

    -I tried to incorporate the Joan of Arc cross as well as an overall larger cross into the design, I also gave her a fur hoodie that I thought could lightly hint at a "halo" as well as be a reference to Joan of Arc's beginnings as a simple farm girl (sheep's wool).
