    I followed C. Roland's tutorial. I used blender to add alexander's armor and hair, then fixed the export with nifscope and sceneviewer.

    I tried to add a swordman's sword to her back with both blender and sceneviewer, but it wouldn't stick. It just hung motionless in the background. I thought her hair flip animation would look like she was fingering the hilt.

    Unfortunately, using blender she's unshaded.:(

    That's very creative, good work with the LH. Looks entirely different from the current ones.

    BTW I second asio's fine print! WW2 leaders!

    I see three details to improve this :
    - the background : The "Arc de triomphe" is not related in any way to Joan of Arc. I would pick an Orleans ramparts background eventually from Luc Besson's movie.
    - the breast : the armor needs some work here and the bib kind of thing is unnecessary
    - the face : I see her with freckles. She will look awesome with these marks ( She was a shepherdess after all).

    Anyways, this is a terribly amazing work ! I am amazed you did it as a second opus. I'm not aware of sceneviewer, what is this ?

    Yeah !

    Jeanne d'Arc ! The woman that beat the Britts ! Cooool !

    I like the traits you chose too. Very realistic. They represent her well.

    Thanks.

    - the background: I know, I couldn't find any relevant photos.
    - the breast: Took a bit of experimenting to get the armor looking as it is.
    - the face: maybe

    Here's a link to the scene viewer tutorial by rabbit white. It allows basic editting of NIF files.

    The first one is beautiful, but i think the second one is better, that's the most caracteristic of the Chinon' Castle ^_^ and history

    EDIT : sorry for my basic english but hope you understand what i mean
