Uniform Refs

Hurrah for the internets! The Google has once again helped me in my quest to replicate Soviet Russia. Here are some varying uniforms, though I'll be primarily using the winter ones (Russia, is snowy, yo!).

Some Enviro WIPs

Trying to get the grey palette down...

Yessss, some awesome reference pics! This is completely the wrong war, but I love the juxtaposition of the quaint French town with the tension of the French soldiers occupying it. It's a much cheerier scene than what I'd like to have, but I figure it's a good starting point. Now I just need to make the weather cold and gray and make the townsfolk miserable and I think we've got an environment brewing away!

some doodles

Alrighty, so my little world is set in some similar period to WW2, so it draws a lot of influence from that era.
These cheeky little fellows are gluttons, flabby, squat bastards that eat anything in site, but particularly like feasting on dead or dying things (like wounded soldiers) because their fat asses get tired of waddling after faster, healthier prey. There's a Hitler themed glutton 'cus I thought he would be cuter with a 'stache.
The ashers are inspired by the prisoners at Auschwitz. They're emaciated, gangly and some are even charred. I figure they spawn from ashes and after a while they sort've just crumble away. They're mainly annoying, not dangerous, but they scare the shit out of troops in the old country none the less.
Why are dogs in ushankas so damn cute? My dog hates his... Anyway, some little enviro thumbs. I suck at doing urban stuff, and decaying buildings aren't any easier for me. Ah well, looks like I've got to be persistent until I get the hang of 'em!

too, too comfy.

Whoa, so I get home for break, start working on some environment thumbs, and totally decide that I'm being more productive at home than I would be in class. Sooo... I'll be working from home today. Sorry, Miles, but this is working out for me today! I suspect I'll be updating regularly this evening though so let's see what I come up with.
