Enjoy,

Though I dislike a traditional steampunk style, this is an aweosme piece of art! It has a very serious look. 

Heil Kaiser dir!

Ah, the Last Emperor of Germany...

While I'm solidly in the Red camp, I do have an appreciation and slight admiration for Wilhelm II. If ever I would become a Monarchist, the Kaiserreich would prove inspirational...

Very lovely line work, great shading and detail. You did this with gel pen? Most impressive, and a slight bit better than ballpoints can achieve, I will say. Pen is a fun medium to work with, but I sometimes think grabbing any old pen lying about is a silly way to go about it. My own experience, mind you.

As an aside, I happen to sport a moustache similar to the Kaiser's. Not exactly as robust, but damn close!

I like Kaiser Wilhelm II!


He was less crazed than Hitler. Plus, he's got a badass look with that fierce mustache.

Mechanical arm, I see. I imagine he had his withered one amputated or some such?

Also, that eagle belt buckle looks very uncomfortable to wear.

Yes, it is uncomfortable, but not enough to spoil the Kaiser's COOLNESS.

Sorry for double post, but on closer observation (god I must have been half-blind) this is clearly steam-puk Willy - another round of applause, I particularly like the touch with hte arm, referencing history (his crippled arm, so a mechanical replacement is natural.) 5 Stars.
