Joan of Arc

Finished up this illustration recently for Sketch Theatre’s monthly challenge.  This month’s topic was Joan of Arc.  I wanted to create a soft sketchy portrait with strong graphic lines as the border and the fleur de lis tapestry as the background element.  I also enjoyed the idea of the old masters’ use of a halo in their paintings when representing an individual considered holy.  I did so in this illustration keeping hard lines on it so it would flow with the boarder and contrast and outline Joan of Arc.
