My part of the art trade with Ahleh, her OC for Stalingrad, Vasily.
I couldn’t get the Battle of Stalingrad mood out of my head so I tried my best to give him a soldier allure, a cocky smile because, after all, the USSR did come victorious.
The Battle of Stalingrad was a major and decisive battle of World War II in which Nazi Germany and its allies (Romania, Italy, Hungary, Croatia) fought the Soviet Union for control of the city of Stalingrad (now Volgograd) in the southwestern Soviet Union. The battle took place between 23 August 1942 to 2 February 1943 and was marked by constant close-quarters combat, and lack of regard for military and civilian casualties. It is among the bloodiest battles in the history of warfare, with the higher estimates of combined casualties amounting to nearly two million.
