Experience Level: Entry
I need 3 characters illustrations for my film proposal for my final year at university. My film is set in WW2 ( specifically around the attack on the Merville Gun Battery on D-Day) It features two German soldiers and a British Paratrooper. A full length Shot of each character is needed with a Head and shoulders close up of their face. Preferably so both pictures can fit on an A4 sized piece of paper, leaving enough room for text/descriptions/blurb

German 1
Soldat Bruno - A 15 year old young child soldier, brown haired and brown eyed. Bruno is brand new to the war, and sees it is a little more sitting around than he first thought. He'd grown up on victorious war stories living in Nazi Germany. His uniform is a little bit too big for him, so much so that he has to adjust his helmut on top of his head frequently to see. His uniform hasn't been used enough for him to get it dirty. He has the standard issue bolt action Kar 98k and his bayonet on him (Bayonet is a key item to the story) He is also young and Naive.

German 2
Gefreiter Willhelm - A 55 - 60 year old conscript and veteran of the first world war. He is like a father figure to Bruno and takes him under his wing, however he doesn't preach war but pacifism through his experiences. His uniform is a little more unkept, sleeves rolled up, the odd mud stain, gritty binoculars to hand he's seen a bit of action. Wilhelm also has a Kar 98k like Bruno but isn't as excited to use it.

Both illustrations of these characters need to feature their ranks and full equipment. Also, if an illustration could be drawn up showing the relationship between the two, that would be awesome, Although not necessary, it would definitely help with the pitch. Something like Wilhelm having his arm round Bruno.

British Paratrooper
Sergeant Morrain - A late 30's British paratrooper who is old enough to have children the same age as Bruno. He keeps a letter and photograph from his wife of his family (wife, young boy and an old dog, preferably a labrador) He also is a veteran and has seen quite a lot of the war already, he's a bit tired of it but ready for the last few rounds. He is in his full jump suit, Blackened face for camo, camo jacket, netted helmut, the works. He also has a bolt action rifle, but it is the British Lee enfield.

Like the German illustrations I would like to see his rank and Regiment logo on his Uniform.

This is a student project, so not much money can be spent on this.
