...For a short sequence I boarded not too long ago.

Although I put "traditional work" in the category section, the color, fonts, and overall page layout is in PS. Linework's all Colerase pencils.

As is, I need to find a way to condense and write an intro that pulls the reader in.

On the upside, I'm happy with how the MP 42 and MP 40 (guns) turned out in the drawing.

I've debated for awhile whether or not to include Wehrmacht soldiers in any subject matter I do. I figured that depending on how I handle the story or subject, most folks will pick up on the fact that I'm not trying to promote National Socialism. As if the koph and shin in my watermark/signature wasn't enough of a tip off as to where I stand on the subject. Oi vey...

Inspired by Miyazaki's Daydream Notebook.

By the fall of 1943, they would be after 2 winters (and in retreat).

:) before you said to me about Miyazaki's story, I told yah that it reminded me of Miyazaki so that's why I was surprised... you read my mind. :3

Indeed I did - one of my many powers. Now the trick is to figure out how to read Hayao's mind. (You seem to be better at that than I am. @__@ )
