Character Design Poses

This is my character for the poses assignment in Character Design class and I'm SUPER proud of it.  It's basically one big extended historical metaphor.  Essentially, it's the history of the German Confederation summed up in 6 poses starting with the fall of Napoleonic France and the end of the Austro-Prussian War (Where Austria lost) with the German Double-Headed Eagle telling that tale.  I'm just a super nerd, really.

The Austria bird/head has the long 'head' feather that is a reference to the long feathers that were put in the caps of Austrian army officers of that time period.  The Prussia bird/head has the 'spike' feather that is a reference to the spike found atop classic German soldier helmets.  The rooster is of course the Gallic Rooster, a symbol of France's national spirit since Roman times.  The German translates "The German Confederation presents...The German Coat of Arms" and the second one is graffiti'd over with 'Prussia presents...' instead, hahahahaha, I'm so witty.

The urge to animate the Austria bird with the Inglorious Bastard voice clip of 'Nein, nein, nein!' is overwhelming, guys.
