My mischievous nature wants to dub this "Jeanne b'Ark".
BUT THAT WOULD BE SILLY RIGHT

Digital painting study based around a silly whim and the painting by Harold H. Piffard ( [link] )

Just to be on the safe side: This is not intended to be a parody or a mockery of the original painting or Joan of Arc. I just thought it was a cute idea. Initially I just had the idea that a cocker spaniel would kinda make for a cool anthro lady knight with the ears for a hairdo, but I wanted to do more realistic painting practice, so guess who comes up 99% of the time when you look for classic paintings of a woman in armor.

Done completely in SAI, roughly 10 hours total.

Not totally happy with how the lighting and tones on her head came out, but considering that this is not part of the original painting and that's kinda the first cocker spaniel head I painted in a realistic style like, ever, I think the result is pretty decent.

omg i love it!! to be honest i can't see the lighting differences that you can, and that it does sit quite well (p.s. i would so have this as a print on the wall! :P ); all in all a great job!

So wonderful! I grew up with cocker spaniels and you've captured the spaniel expression very nicely, especially around the eyes. :D

nice painting i have got to say. like the brush stroke feeling you gave it.i do agree on the tones for her face though. dunno. dont have the same feel as the rest of the pice for some reason ( not that i am any better my colours are alwasy super "juicy" as im told. or dark and gritty XD ) . but the skill in this is realy good. i may do some observational digitally now. i only ever done them with paper and pen nwn. all in all. id say a nine out of ten. maybe higher

I love it. But that's a shame that we couldn't translate your pun in french, since bark is aboyer, it would make Jeanne d'Aboie, which sounds more like Jeanne l'Aboie, or Jeanne du Bois. x) But I love it anyway !! :heart:
