Illustration Friday: Resolve...

"Her resolve was as firm and steely as her sharpened blade."

I wanted to get back in the habit of participating in Illustration Friday.  It's been a while since I've last posted anything for the weekly challenge.  So, I thought I'd bring back my most popular Illustration Friday piece done some months ago for the topic, "Green".  I think that it still applies to this week's prompt, "Resolve".

Joan of Arc is certainly a great example of resolve! I really love the patchwork of the greens behind the steely grey of her armor. Very nice piece, Andrew!

Thanks, Carla! I built up the background with different layers of collage before painting the figure in a faux-fresco style.

Thank you! I guess I've resolved to try and make more of an appearance on Illustration Friday again.
