In summer 2001 (I was 12 years old), I was in France and visited Rouen. There, on a town square, I remember seeing a sign that marked the spot where Joan of Arc was burnt on May 30, 1431.

I think my classical-academic art training shows in the drawings of the two half-naked guys... Painting them was the most fun part! I painted them exactly the same way we used to paint the live model in class with oil on canvas; minus the real models.

Reference used: Plenty! This time I've collected them all here for your convenience: [link]
Also: bird brushes from =Falln-Stock
Time: about 30 hours?
Medium: Wacom tablet and Photoshop

an inaccurate depiction, she was burned wearing men's clothing.
They even gave her a choice they would not burn her but execute her by hanging if she chose to die in women's clothing. But she lived her life fighting in a man's raiment, so death in a man's raiment she will remain.

Not long after an English army was destroyed by hell stones from the sky! British moral collapsed and they lost the capacity to carry on the war. God recalled his massager to him as soon as her work was done.

Poor Joan! This is a gorgeous piece but the one detail that really struck me was the little boy in the foreground crouching down to feed the pigeon, seemingly oblivious to the tragedy. Powerful! :rose:
