The German and the Jew - P3 by zetallis The German and the Jew - P3 by zetallis
This is page 3 of an assignment I had to do in storyboarding class, 3 pages of sequential art. So like a comic. It's done in pencil and took me freaking forever. I'm so slow ;__; I also need to learn how to draw darker.

This is page 3 of a short comic I may do in the future called "The German and the Jew." Basically a love story with sort of an alternate Oni and Ark.

The text on the page goes something like this (I need to refine it still):
"It was so unfair to have to be seperated from her."

"But perhaps fate..."

"was trying to be kind to us that day."

Then righht at the bottom would be:
".
.
.
I don't believe it.."

When those close together must cross paths in battle. That’s always a hard story to take, but one of my favourites.

The art is amazing and I can really believe that emotion they’re feeling in their expressions.

An amazing comic. Bravo. :clap: This is really good work.
Is there a chance that you will continue the story, or are you leaving it as it is?

P.S. You should read the comic "Maus" by Art Spiegelman. It is also about the holocaust, but the jews are mice, the polish are pigs, the french as frogs, americans as dogs, and the germans as "wild cats". A great comic book. Recomended.

I love this piece for many personal reasons, being Jew myself, but also is because you really capture the moment with it. Very nice!

Wow. I don't know why, but I stumbled accross your page and read the three pages of 'The German and the Jew' and decided to comment on this. Really, pretty much all of the pages are very emotional and express certain feelings. The way you drew each of the pages is very well done, too. Page 1 really expressed a lot of feelings, and you got the 'historical' scenes perfect, too. and I absolutely love page 3...The way they see eachother again..It's a really touching scene. I myself have a lot of interest in the German history and such, and I think that could explain why this piece got me interested when I first saw the title. The flow, the plotline, emotions and facial expressions on both Ark and Oni's faces are very well noted down. Good job on this. :3

its interesting you made Oni a soldier, when I think that wasnt the case those days. Logically one could think on Ark as a soldier and Oni a rebel, but your apreach gives it alot more feeling into it.

I really like it.

wow, such amazing work! Your pencils are so clean, and everything looks solid and professional. You must have put a lot of time and effort and downright work into these three pages. Great job, this is such a great story you have developing. I started tearing up at the last two panels. Even without the words, it's so moving. With them, even more so. Well done.

Yeah...this kind of stuff happened...man, that era sucked ._.

That's done in pencil? That looks so...well done. o_o You sorta inspire me to work on my own ideas. XD
I love the final two panels where, as they are standing still in shock, the chaos still continues around them, pictured by the smoke and stuff. Outfits look cool, too, and accurate enough to believe.

Er...not sure if your title is completely sound. Jews were Germans, too. However, Hitler marked Jews as "impure" Germans. Any homosexual Germans or Germans with gypsy culture were also marked with the unfavorable star. Aryans, gypsies, Jews, and other people residing in Germany were all Germans as a whole. Hitler tried to filter them out, leaving only the Aryans, the so called "noble race."

So, a more accurate title might be "The Aryan and the Jew." Just a suggestion *Shrug*

I heard about that too, but according to my history teacher and wikipedia.org, it's only a rumor that has never been confirmed. It was a rumor used as propaganda to soil his political reputation. According to his political enemies, his grandmother got pregnant while working for a Jewish household. However, many historians strongly oppose this idea, argueing that Jews were expelled from the city she worked in. So, thus, it's no more than a rumor.

That's true that Jews were Germans too. But the reason for the title is hopefully in the end you ask (if not already), "Wait, what's the difference?" "They're the same, so why all this turmoil?" "What's wrong with this picture?" "Why why why?" Etc. That sort of thing if you understand what I'm getting at.

There's a song that's called "I Was Not a Nazi Polka." It's hilerious. XD

"Germans are as gentle as flowers in the spring
Sing the I Was Not a Nazi Polka
All that Germans like to do is dance and sing,
Sing the I Was Not a Nazi Polka"

"Hilter? Who is Hilter? Should I know him? Is he a folk singer?"
