American in Berlin Colour by humon American in Berlin Colour by humon
More late night sketching.
I felt these guys needed a colour picture, most of all because people seem to think the American has blue eyes and the German is blond. He's supposed to have light graying hair. Generals are rarely young after all, especially during the first world war. ;)

And they have names now. Well, they've been having names for a long time, but now you know them.

EDIT: I have no idea why Benjamin's eyebrows ended up looking like that. They are supposed to be the same shade of grey as his hair, only less warm, and did on my other computer. Now they just look weird. I'll have to do something about that later.

EDIT: What's wrong with the German having a Jewish name? What makes you guys think he isn't Jewish? There were plenty of Jews in the German military before WW2. His religion just doesn't matter to the story because Jews weren't yet seen as a big problem in Germany, least of all in Berlin where the story takes place.

Too bad Humon never really continued this story. I was really looking forward to it.

I love their names and backgrounds this is such an amazing story to me (might be because I'm a slight history freak) I love Colin's tie color too ^^

Can I finish this comic for you? I would credit you, and it would only be like one comic of my version of the ending in my head.

I usually don't do things like plead to a author or anything, but the story line for this is just too perfect for me not plead to you! Please do more of this!

"Benjamin" isn't even a specifically Jewish name in Germany. I don't know about back then, but today a lot of guys are called Benjamin here. Just like Sarah and Eva are actually Jewish names which absolutely doesn't matter and didn't back then (think of Eva Braun).
