    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.

    gonna make thigh armor longer and do a nicer neck armor piece

    2. this is probably what the composition will look like

    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).

    Nice topic!

    Can I do a peice of her tied to the stake, about to be burned?

    This week sounds fun, but my hols end on wednesday, so I doubt I'll finish.

    =[

    uhm... just thought i'd point out... isn't she supposed to be pretending to be a boy... therefore being all in armour doesn't really go with shown cleavage...
    i might join this one... sounds fun....

    It's an open topic, so yes. Just be 'respectful'! As for cleavage, that too is up to the individual artist. Joan dressed as man probably for two reasons, practicality and to avoid male attention. In the end it was a contributing factor to her eventual execution.

    Yeah, but we're allowing a little artistic license on this one, so it isn't a sticking point. :]

    she did not pretend to be a boy in the battle
    only while she was crossing the country alone
    plus she had her armor made custom for her

    and yes i am aware that she didnt wear any panties or high heels
    but i dare that to stop ME!

    Holy freak - Joan of Arc!

    I'll see if I can get into this one. She used to be my childhood role model when I was mad gung-ho into women who could fight.

    I really like this topic. I've always had this weird vision of Joan. I hope I can get it right. I've had to start over already. Oh well. : ) I hope I get something done in time.

    let's see if I can actually finish a chow again. :/ I'm taking a semi-classic approach with liberties in the armor but this being a first draft I still need to think about the 'divine' part.

    Got a strong start on this one! Just hope I don't end up fizzling out again

    Going for an art nouveau graphic feel to this one.

    Baxter - That's an awesome idea. I can't wait to see how it comes out. :]

    I have an idea. It'll be how the English viewed her, as opposed to being the savior of the French. I'm exciteeeddddfasdfasdfa.
