German Para at Normandy

Mixed media drawing of a WWII German paratrooper at or around Normandy. Its sort of a portrait commission, the main figure has done some reenacting and modeling for me and we are trading off a small painting for all he has done. Tom modeled both figures in the drawing and made the MG 34 ( machine gun ) the second soldier is holding. There isn't much German soldier work in the portfolio and most of my work involves multiple figures on a much larger scale. It was interesting to put this together taking the non-action route made it more palatable for me, I'm not a fan of the WWII German army. In a very crowded schedule this is a decent start in solving design or content problems. When I pick this up again any flaws not apparent today will show up then.
