St. Joan of Arc was a 15th century martyr who led the French in battle against the English during the Hundred Years war. She was eventually wounded, captured, tried for heresy, and burned at the stake at the age of 19. In life she was known for being incredibly inspirational and brave.

 When I was doing research for this piece I found quite a few depictions of Joan that showed her as a sorrowful, willowy, very young girl with long, flowing hair–I wanted to stay away from depicting her in the dress she was executed in, looking helpless, because there’s plenty of that around already (though there are many wonderful images of her in armor as well!) From the transcripts of her trial historians generally agree that she was a short (~5'2") muscular, stocky woman, with short black or dark brown hair, which fits her image as a farmer’s daughter, who wore full armor and carried a long sword and a large banner into battle. She was known to be at least semi-literate, and signed her name “Jehanne”

(I know I said I’d be done with this yesterday, but shh, it’s done now, I put a ton into it, and I love how it came out)
