In before the end of the world arrives :XD:


Here's Captain Maximilian Schneider of the 407th Arm. Bataillon, 50th Arm. Brigade, 3rd Arm. Division of the Deutsches Heer (German Army). He's posing proudly near by his KMW Leopard 2A7 MBT. He's also holding an H&K MP7.

Not much else to say. It's a fairly simple picture but I work on the detail pretty extensively. Took me a while to finish it on paper.

There a few parts of the drawing that I'm not quite pleased with. For starters, the hands turned out ugly again :( Which made coloring them a drag, Although I did manage to make a good coloring of the hands that sort of fixes the uglyness. I still have to practice more in that area, both drawing and coloring. Another part that didn't went so good is the position and size of the legs. Kinda like they're too short although the perspective angle and proportion sizes continue to lead me to the same outcome.

But after coloring the picture, those mistakes don't seem to brake the drawing as much as it used to color-less. So I'm happy.
I'm overall very happy with this project because the coloring process went perfectly. Textures, shadows, light effects, they're all fitting good.

This was the first time I have drawn a Leopard 2A7 but since I had experience already drawing the older L2A6s, it wasn't much of a problem. Actually the shape of that new turret armor makes it easier to draw than the L2A6. A key difference between the L2A7 and the L2A6 aside from the hull and turret armor is the presence of a FLW 200 remotely controlled weapon station with a H&K GMG automatic grenade launcher instead of a manually controlled Rheinmetall MG3 machine gun. Although the FLW 200 can have an MG3 installed instead of an H&K GMG.

I hope everything looks accurate. Beret, Headset, Glasses, Uniform, Ballistic Vest, Gun, Tank. I took all those details into account. :)


I hope you guys like it. This is the last german-army related project I'll be doing for a while. ;)

I will get to all your comments ASAP.

I'll see'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

(And a Happy new Year 2012! Looking forward to the end of the world :D -Kidding-)

Ze germans are back!

(And all our european neighbours are like "OH NO! NOT AGAIN!" :D )

We see here three soldiers of the German Army (Deutsches Heer - Bundeswehr) posing cheaply for my lame "Pro-Bundeswehr" propaganda campaign :iconimhappyplz:

Nah... actually I just wanted to draw some soldiers with a "WTF are you looking at?" attitude :D

On the left we have our dear Oberleutnant (First Leutenant) Helga Nadler with her favourite weapon... a Heckler & Koch G-36 assault rifle fitted with an H&K AG-36 grenade launcher. Bigass weapon of badass girl :D
As you can see she's not using the... ahem... standar german uniform. Rather more a mix between woodland and desert flecktarn clothing :iconimhappyplz:

What? She ain't an orthodox soldier otherwise she wouldn't have posed for the "Why I joined the Deutsches Heer" picture. ;)
Unfortunatelly her face went a little screwed :hmm: When I drew it on pencil it was fine but after inking it, it looked quite bad. :| I'm seriously considering not to ink my drawings anymore and instead scan them while still on pencil and then work the linearts digitally. Such strategy could help me get to a new level in my CG skills.

The guy in the middle is an updated version of a long forgotten OC of mine called Maximillian Schneider (Surname probably mispelled... will check later). He's a young major (at the moment of the picture). His main weapon is the H&K P8 (German Army adaptation of the H&K USP), which is located at his chest for an easy extraction. Gun looks a bit too small. Gotta draw hand guns more frequently.
Oh.... for those german army enthusiasts... don't bother trying to figure out what the beret insignia stands for. In the german army the berets insignia and colors are helpful to determine the mission and role of each soldier. In this picture the insignia is fictional.

Also I'm not so sure whetter officer would actually wear the berets in a combat zone. ^^;

The third guy on the right is your random german soldier ;)
Nobody special. He's holding a standar G-36 assault rifle fitted with an EOTech sight and a Foregrip. However the rifle's size makes it look a bit more like the G-36K :hmm: Proportion mistake right there I think. ^^;

The Flecktarn pattern used for both the woodland and desert flecktarn uniforms was made using my own Flecktarn brushes. Check my gallery and you should find them :)


I originally hesitated in uploading this picture given a recent incident that took place in Afghanistan were german ground forces called in an american air strike and blew two fuel trucks stolen by the Taleban. The bombing raid apparently killed way more civilians than actually expected. :hmm: Not the shinest moment of army. But this picture is not to reflect any of that. It's just pasrt of my WW3 fan fiction.

I hope you like this. ;) Next is the "Why I joined the VDV" project. However I'm planning to work paralelaly on :iconchukkz:'s request lineart so that once I'm finished coloring all currently scanned linearts, I can go scan the new linearts not long after. :)

I'll be replying to you all ASAP.

Until then, I'll see'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

Nickname: Yoda, Yo-kun

Gender: male

Age: 17

Grade: first year

Dormitory: Tamagawa

Club: Art

Orientation: bisexual ( he doesnt notice the difference between genders much)

Likes:

- games

- bubble gum and lollipops

- drawing ( for his game designing)

- mangas/ anime

- writing ( also for game designing purposes)



Dislikes:

- people starring at him or crowding him

- doing most sports (because he is not really good at them)

- ridiculing games

Personality:

He is rather cheerful and loving but not that social around people because he doesn’t know how to interact with them. He is rather smart even if in some areas he is a bit of an idiot (like analyzing feelings). He has a big lack of orientation and gets lost easily, mostly when he is playing on his portable console while walking. He gets very protective about people he likes as well as personal interests. When he gets into an anxious situation he gets really bold, saying things that might come off as rude. He also has the habit to smile when he is actually afraid so he'd seem calm. All in all he wants to be friends with people but doesn't know how to initiate it.



Biography

"Dont worry my dear yo-chan, even if mommy isnt going to be here, daddy will be. And if you ever feel lonely or miss mommy, you can play the game we did together. Promise me there will be many more to come, ok?"

Those where the words Yoneda last heard from his mother when he was small. She was a wonderful woman with a cheerful character, yet she had a weak heart. He was sad but knew that she still lived on in her games. She was a game designer that created many worlds for people to venture in and he was very proud of that. Especially of the one they designed together. The base of the story started from an idea of his. In the game, you played a boy who had to go on an adventure to find a witch who cursed his mother. He tried putting all his ideas into the heart warming game, feeling more and more excited as the story grew. That day he realized what he wanted to do. He wanted to be a game designer and create games which will enchant people into playing. He wanted to make his mother proud and continue what she started.

His father found a wife a few years after and he felt happy for him. She was nice but still a bit quiet around the boy, probably not knowing how to interact with him. Still, he didn’t mind that. He knew she had good intentions and made his father happy and that was good enough for him. He also had a step-sister now which was older than him but quite rebellious so he didn’t get to see her that often. They didn't seem to interact very well anyway so it was somehow better like that.

He didn’t really feel like he interacted well at school, being rather anxious and bold around the girls and the guys teasing him about his games so he stopped socializing with many of them and just focused on his games. He realized that during that period he started having a fondness towards lollipops and bubble gum. It was probably a way for him to keep his mouth occupied and not retort to the people around him. He started playing a lot of other games to catch up on some ideas and tricks for stories. With this he succeeded making one friend who shared a mutual interest with him and that was playing games.

One day his father had a talk with him and he told him about the high school his mother wanted to get in when she was about his age. He took out a picture from a box filled with her belongings and reached it out to Yoneda. The picture was of a beautiful High-school which charmed him instantly. He understood why his mother liked it even if he couldn’t exactly put his finger on it. He would do anything to get into that high school.

Besides studying his butt of everyday, he snuck out sometimes to go to his part-time job. They weren’t exactly poor but he knew his father already had to support his wife and a rebellious daughter, so when he thought of going to this prestigious school, he didn’t want to burden him too much. He would still do everything possible to get his hands on a scholarship, yet he just wanted to make sure that he had a back-up plan, just in case. His friend made it possible for him to work in different places as a part-timer without anyone asking about his actual age. He worked as a bartender, in a convenient store , even as a host for a limited period of time. There was nothing going to stop him from going to that school. He was confident he'd get in, no matter what it would take.

Then the time came. He received a letter about his acceptance in the school. He was so nervous his hands were shaking. Once he opened the letter and read the line "you have been successfully admitted to Tachikawa-high" he almost felt like crying. He did it. He finally did it.

His father shared his excitement even if he didn’t like the fact that the High school was in a town rather far away from his. He gave him a envelope, which contained a picture of his mother, the one of his high school and a rather large sum of money. Yoneda didn’t want to accept it but his father ordered him to. He knew how hard Yoneda was working to get in and even if the boy received a scholarship, he still wanted to help him. This was the only thing he could do for him anymore and he wanted to at least let him support his only son. He really did it. He was going to go to the high school his mother loved. From there on he was going to persuade his dream of becoming a game designer and nothing would stand in his way.

He thanked his friend for taking care of him all this time and took his farewells. His father gave him something that was left behind from his mother. She asked him to give it to Yoneda when he found something he loved. It was a portable console with the game they both designed together. So he could always have her with him. He smiled thankfully feeling more motivated then he had ever been.

" Tachikawa-high, here I come!"

I ended making three different versions;
one is very simple, without all the color variations,
and the other has a soft brown, almost sepia, color scheme

Out of the three, I like this one the most since it has the most color :'P

Due to destroyed supply lines, even _those_ rations were considered tasty among Kriegers during the defense of Grabstein III.

P.S.
Uncle Nurgle approves.

Virgin and Founder (c.480-543)
Feast/Memorial Day: February 10
Patroness of convulsive children, nuns, and invoked against storms and rain.

- Historico-Liturgical Note:
Scholastica, the twin sister of St Benedict, was born in Nursia, which is at the border between Umbria and Sabina. She consecrated herself to God from her earliest years and remained home with her father, while Benedict went off to Rome for his education. According to the Dialogues of St Gregory the Great - the only source we have concerning Benedict and Scholastica - it is likely that while Benedict was at Subiaco, Scholastica was at a monastery nearby. Later, in order to stay close to her brother, Scholastica followed him to Montecassino and entered a monastery at Piumarola. There she died at 547.
According to the Benedictine Calendar at the end of the 8th century, the feast of St. Scholastica was celebrated on February 10. By the 9th century it was celebrated throughout the monastic world and reached its widest diffusion between the 11th and 13th centuries. By the end of the 18th century her feast is found in the Roman liturgical books. We have no historical details concerning the translation of her relics to Le Mans, France, in the 7th century or from the archaeological investigation of her tomb at Montecassino in 1950.

Priest, Doctor of the Church (1225-1274)
Feast/Memorial Day: January 28
Patronage: Catholic universities, colleges and schools

- Historico-Liturgical Note:
Son of the Count of Aquino and a mother who was of German descent (it is said that she was related to the Barbarossa family), Thomas was born at the castle of Roccasecca, near Montecassino, Italy. As a child he was educated there by the Benedictines and from his earliest years he had a thirst for knowledge and truth. He later studied at the University of Naples, where he came into contact with the Dominicans and joined their ranks at the age of 18. His father was bitterly opposed to this choice and arranged to have Thomas kidnapped and held prisoner in the tower of the castle for 15 months. Liberated with the help of his sisters, Thomas proceeded to Paris for further studies (1245); then to Cologne, where he studied under St Albert the Great, and finally back to Paris (1256), where he became a Master of Sacred Theology at the age of 31. Together with St Bonaventure, he defended the right of the friars to teach at the University against the opposition of the diocesan clergy.

Between 1259 and 1269 he was in Italy, at the service of Pope Urban IV, and during that time he wrote the Catena Aurea to help the clergy better understand the word of God, the Summa contra Gentiles (at the request of St Raymond of Penyafort) to provide doctrinal material for missionaries to the Muslims, and the Divine Office for the feast of Corpus Christi. From 1269 to 1272 he was once again in Paris to defend the rights of the friars and to justify the use of Aristotle's philosophy in the study of theology. During this period he wrote his commentaries on various works of Aristotle and the greater part of his famous Summa Theologiae.

In 1272 Thomas was back in Naples to found a theological stadium, and to preach, teach and write. On December 6, 1273, while celebrating Mass, he received an interior inspiration to cease writing and teaching. Nevertheless, he did accept the invitation of Pope Gregory X to assist at the Council of Lyons. On the way to France he died at the Cistercian monastery at Fossanova, Italy, on March 7, 1274.

Thomas Aquinas was canonized by Pope John XXII in 1323. Pope Pius V proclaimed him a Doctor of the Church and in 1880 Pope Leo XIII declared him patron of all Catholic schools. Since the 16th century he has been called "the Angelic Doctor," and this for two reasons, as is stated in the Preface of the Mass: the purity of his life and the loftiness of his doctrine. Later he was given the title Doctor Communis because of the depth and breadth of his teaching. His feast is celebrated on January 28 because on that day in 1368 his relics were transferred to Toulouse, France, by order of Pope Urban V.
