Zeppelinoffizier by JanBoruta Zeppelinoffizier by JanBoruta
Prussian militarism attacks! Here a mid-ranked officer of one of the stratospheric zeppelins of Wilhelm II's Kaiserliche Luftflotte.

I kicked off with a pencil sketch at school and finished it later with a black gel pen at home, it all took about 3-3,5 hours. There shall be more steampunk, I guess!

Enjoy,
Tom ;)

He looks so imposing. Like, he doesn't need weapons to kick butt.

Could we see the British, French, Russian, and/or Austrian equivalents to this soldier?

Weee!!! Death Korps! Just joking. :D
By the way, Did Imperial Germans had this "Gott mit Uns" belt buckle?
Anyway, amazing work!

Yet I am mistaken, forgot to watch the pictures :D Apparently there were buckles during Imperial era [link]

Hell, you could place the motto everywhere :D

I believe I came across the Death Korps (and whole WH40K and WFB) some time after I drew this one :D German Empire is seemingly an almost infinite source of inspiration for eveyrone out there :D

As I learned from the wiki (though you know how you can trust the wiki...) only the Wehrmacht of the Third Reich had "Gott mit uns" buckles (Waffen-SS had a patriotic slogan instead of religious one). Army of the German Empire had "Gott mit us" somewhere on the helmets, but to be honest, I hadn't seen one yet. Wiki: [link] This motto is far older than both countries.

Every Imperial Guard Regiment was based on some real army. British colonial troops, Soviet WW2 conscripts, or WW1 Imperial Germans. German Empire is popular, because you can add a little "germanic" feel to your art, without being a bloody nazi. ;)
Anyway, keep up the good work!
One of the best steampunk characters I've ever seen!

As this piece is three years old, I'm working on a few new Germanophile steampunk pieces, although the ones that are nearest to completion are K.u.K.-oriented. :)
