Joan of Arc by GENZOMAN Joan of Arc by GENZOMAN
This is the second time i draw her for Myths & Legends TCG... I love her story since i was a kid (but not too much the movies based on her life :() in fact she was one of the first historical characters that took my attention by all the spiritual background.

this time i want for her closer look to FFXI hume/armor style :P (i was triying this MMORPG, is pretty good :D) in first time i did a very monochromatic version, but i change it for a happier one :P dunno.

My heroine :) (Smile) 
I died when seeing the title. Who in the hell translate names ? XD It's Jeanne d'Arc. Not...Joan of Arc. XD I'm surprised that, if you love her that much, you don't even know her real name. But I'm even more shocked there are people stupid enough to change a name for another (aka whatever you saw calling her...Joan...which, I have to point out, refers to Johan (a male name) and not even Jeanne, a correct "translation" would be Jane, all making that name...even more stupid.... 
Ladies and gents: The asshole we were all waiting for. He just had to comment. I applaud you! :iconslowclapplz:

Of course you are right, "Jeanne D'Arc" IS the original name of the Virgin of Orléans. But did you ever consider that during that time it was quite normal to "translate" foreign names the best they could? And that in different cultures, they kept those translated names for generations to come until today? It is not an act of stupidity, but tradition, and many of them are conscious of the original name, but keep referring to these persons in their translated name as an act of respect (to not possibly pronounce the foreign name wrong).

These people have obviously much more respect for the foreign world than you had in your ignorant comment. Maybe you wouldn't have written such idiocy if you had received higher education, which you obviously didn't, so shut your arrogant (possibly nationalist) mouth.

The equivalent of Jeanne is Jane. The equivalant of Joan is Johan which is...a male name only in French (and not even Jean which is the male version of Jeanne). So even if translating was "normal", the unability for proper equivalence is...shameful. Also, please tell me why they can't correct it now ? Change the names in education books, as simple as that, much more respectful. 

Also, your assumption of most people knowing the real name is sadly wrong. (hasty generalisation) do realize that by being that offensive you are actually making you lower than me ? Aggressive, insulting and making prejudices ? How mature ! If you had even triiiiiiiiied not making prejudices you'd have noticed that I'm not even French. (I'm supposed to be nationalist ?) Arrogant and idiotic ? Saying someone should be called by his/her real name is arrogant and idiotic ? ...eeeeerrrr....o...k...???? I think the word respect doesn't have the same meaning for you. Also saying every traditions should be kept ? .....if I was like you making prejudices I'd say you're a traditionalist (in a bad meaning). Some traditions ought to be changed. Obviously, traditionally calling someone wrong is for you more important than changing it and calling it right ? (let me be an "asshole" traditionalists : women shouldn't work ! it's traditions !)

Anyway, thank you for showing that by trying to make me an asshole and uneducated being you're lowering yourself on your own. But I give you credit. A writing on impulse without even thinking, that happens.
