First time I participate chow, so here's my final and wips
went for the more ethereal-everburning-spirit-aspect of joan.
I always thought there's a pic around the web, with Joan of arc with the tricolor flag, but it was too late as I found out it was a painting about the french revolution (350 years later) , anyway, was fun to do.
I can safely say I hate coral painter 11 !
My initial sketch was Joan in a futuristic scene on a motorbike, but since coral droved me insane I gave up, and this is what I have now. Also for some daft reason painter's added a border to the character and the outlines of some marker strokes when I resized it and I can't figure out why. ah well, my excuse is I only did it today ! Anyway...
Here's my submission and a close-up:

So this is as far as I got.
Thanks for the feedback - (NoNameBrand!
Good Luck and well done to all - really enjoyed this. Looking forward to the next one.
Hiya, thought it was time I joined in.
My original idea was that Joan would have been dressed in baggy, oversized armour that was originally mens, because her rise to a battle leader was so fast once she met the king. A side effect of this is theres not much to identify her as Joan or as a saint, so will bear characterisation in mind for the future.
On the plus side am fairly happy with how it turned out, lines and values seem good to me. Done in HB Graphite pencil (nothing else nearby).

Hi, i didn't have the time to add the sketches and progress of the painting, neither to rework the piece.
I haven't even got time to upload it with the picture manager, very sorry for this, i tried uploading over 5 times, doesn't work. So i'm posting the linked image, could someone please attach it for me?

some great looking images in here!
this is a wonderful round, great work everyone!
i decided to show Jeanne in her last minutes, since it's one of the most heroic moments i can imagine: staying calm and proud when facing death.

Pseudo-Future Joan of Arc. I think I was a little inspired by the recent WWII challenge ^^ My Joan is a genius strategist who becomes the leader of a elite fighter squadron "The Archangels" at the mere age of 16.
It's not really done but I'm out of time so here it is, my first "finished" CHOW! WIP's just show how much of a spaz I am, I really need to nail down a consistent process ^^;
