Joan of Arc by Gold-Seven Joan of Arc by Gold-Seven
A tattoo design commission for :iconraynee:, who requested Jeanne d'Arc (1412-1431), a historical figure I've always loved. (Determination against terrible odds and a tragic end. I always fall for those.)

Pencil; background texture from free stock site. Her armour is based on several pieces of plate armour between 1420 and 1430 found in "Historische Waffen und Rüstungen" by Liliane and Fred Funcken, my new can't-do-without reference book.

Wow. I'd love to see the finished tattoo, but the work itself is incredible.

Beautiful! Have you seen the 1928 film, The Passion of Joan of Arc. I have the link if you haven't seen it. It's a must.

So gorgeous! And what a great idea for a tattoo motif. I love the detail in her armour and hair.
