For His Kingdom Chapter Covers

My summer project is a historical comic following the campaign of Jeanne d'Arc, including the Battle of Herrings, Siege of Orleans, and Siege of Compi├Ęgne up until her capture and burning. The chapter covers shown here are allegoric and follow the language of heraldry with plays on the dexter and sinister positioning of the animals to illustrate the situations at the time. The English Lion, the Scottish Unicorn, and the Gallic (French) Rooster all show up and on later chapter covers, horses and dove symbolism will be employed as well.
