Are there any written data that could give us an insight to what joan of arc looked like?

Answer:

There have been a number of contemporary accounts found of Joan of Arc’s appearance, and most of them agree that she was a short and sturdy woman with short black hair and dark eyes. The Seneschal De Boulainvilliers writes an account of her appearance and personality by saying: “This girl is reasonably good-looking, and with something virile in her bearing; she speaks but little, and is remarkably prudent, in what she does say. She eats little, and drinks wine still less; manages both her horse and her arms superbly well; greatly likes the company of knights and soldiers; scorns the company of the rabble; sheds many tears; has a happy expression; so great is her strength in the endurance of fatigue that she could remain completely armed during six whole days and nights”
