This is just a short animation I made for practice, and I must say, that for something that took me about for hours for the sake of less than four seconds of animation,
you do get a lot more respect for professional animators and end up a lot more forgiving of badly animated movies.
The Camp followers
It is a well known fact among historians that for many centuries, most armies have consisted of more than just soldiers,
and behind every large army there was a long trail of the soldier's wives, children, surgeons, sutlers, seamstresses and
countless of other people offering goods and services that made a military campaign possible, yet despite all this and their
tremendous importance to keeping the armies functioning, they get little love from artists, authors and filmmakers who
instead choose to portray warfare as nothing but armies exclusively consisting of muscular 30-ish something dudes whom
all have matching weapons and uniforms, which is kind of unfair to the non-soldiers serving the army if you ask me.

And whilst priests aren't normally included among the lists of camp followers, they too often get disproportionally shafted
in these type of stories, because everywhere where large numbers of people are expected to risk their lives and even die,
there will also be large numbers of people requesting spiritual comfort and final rites for their fallen comrades.
Not everyone in a big battle scene can be a hero with plot armor after all.

So if any aspiring storyteller reading this is planning to script an epic battle for their heroes to win or their mentors to
sacrifice themselves in, send a thought to all the side characters needed to make that battle possible if your world-building
follows any semblance to real-world rules. Most of these people aren't ever likely to be marketable protagonists, but
even just a small acknowledgement of their existence will go a long way.
A Hug
I figured that since it's Pride month, I might just as well share a cute image of two of my characters sharing a tender moment.
In case anyone is curious, both of them feature in a short freeware adventure game I made some time ago.
Link for anyone wanting to play said game and have an hour to spare...
So I had this old drawing that's just been sitting among my files for months, and I figured I might as well share it.
It's Maria, a german deserter who's trying to escape the eastern front disguised as an old homeless woman (and yes, he's well aware that he's got a girly name!).
He's a character from a short game I made a while ago and he's been part of the Sniper and Spotter games too.
Link for anyone wanting to play the game he's featured in...
