Hans Orland Grish by DamnTorren Hans Orland Grish by DamnTorren
A character design for a community I might get into, your run-of-the-mill 6'8" WW1 era German foot soldier (with anachronistic 1916 design hat, considering Grish served in 1920 when they were using the flat pressed-paper helmets since, you know, giant arrows pointing to head shot. German design has not always been the most functional. But I like me a Pickelhaube, so too bad, Grish.)

Actually the functionality of the Pickelhaube originally wasn't too bad, the spike had its reasons. Unfortunately when WWI finally started the Pickelhaube's design was over seventy years old and hopelessly obsolete against industrialized warfare.

Though it has to be added that while the Military equipped more modern helmets the Police and Fire Fighters continued using them for several decades, often even past WWII.

Ooh! Gas masks make everyone look spooky! Is there a reason we don't get to see his face much in the picture? Look at me, resisting to make either a Chance joke or an Are You My Mummy joke (I forgot if you're familiar with Doctor Who enough to get it)... If I may ask, what kind of a community is it? Because if it's something involving OCs and history I might find it interesting. :)

It's a drawn RP community called Streitstadt! Just starting up, I believe.

As for why you can't see much of Hans here, it's because he's going to start off as a bit of a mystery.

Ooh, this goes right into my bookmarks to taunt me. :saddummy: I'm itching for a decent drawn RP since my experiences with written RPs kept bringing more downsides than upsides but let's face it, I'm currently failing at updating my comics regularly AND failing at getting a second Hetherev entry drawn. Besides I'm a sucker for at least basic colouring (I didn't find any information on if greyscale is mandatory or the players are just more sane than I am) so I have a feeling the combination of all that would make me an awful drawn RP partner...

But I want to... :ohnoes: I mean I don't even care much about the theme as long as I can figure out a way to fit some version of my OCs in, I just like hanging with people who like drawing OCs as much as I do.

He can shoot- just somewhat poorly. Reloading takes a while too. :(

I find myself folding a hand behind my back when I do things to get a sense for him. The sense is: Everything is frustrating and takes forever, but is mostly doable. He has a further advantage over me in that his hands are rather large where I have a hard time gripping containers :(

Awww, you bring back the fond memories of when I just came up with Chauncey. But yeah, losing a dominant hand is frustrating as hell. :(
