Number 2 on the list and 25 in Bayern Munchen or 13 in German national team, if you wish.
Association: Berkut (Bercut) also known as golden eagle. Why? Berkut might not look too fancy and may look a bit dull in comparison to smaller raptors in the way of hunting, yet it is very strong big bird, that knows exactly when and where to strike. Thomas is also known for that type of when-and-where precision. And who can be all around the field if not a bird of prey, keeping its sharp eyes on everything around, ready to swoop down right in the place, where it needs to be.
And in spite of growling association with big cats or other toothy animals, cats are rarely up to make some real sound - only if you`ll step on their tail, yet birds are much more noisy creatures, even raptors are up for some loud shouting in the air. And as we all see, Muller is also pretty much… talkative on the field.
And ofcourse, you just cant deny complete badassery of a bird, that is taught to kill not some of your mere birds or rabbits, but wolves and other birds of prey.
Only major flaw of berkut is that he is faar not as fun and adorable, as her Muller can be, when he smiles.
So, what the penguin is happening here?
Well… when it was one step before The Final in this year mundial, I`ve sworn to my friends, that if german team will make it, I`ll draw them all.
All of us know what happened after. So, as a person of honor, I`m getting down to my promises.
So, why Muller this time? No logic here. Just pure blind adoration towards this person. Also just got itchy hands to draw exactly his face right here, right now.
And, as always… My english, sadly, is too poor for me to tell you, how awesome he is.
Hope, he will be fine and lucky in his life. Just need to say great “Thank you” for great play and loads of inspiration that he and national german team gave me.
Anyway, that is why all the insanity began here.

Your association are so accurate too! :'D Müller and Neuer are my favorite, they are so super cool :'D
I knew germany would win haha
It's interesting that you associate him with an golden eagle. In Germany he is often associated with storck
Very well deserved DD! <3
Amazing Art! As he´s one of our team`s leaders, you captured his energy and fighting spirit very well.
Btw, how does it come that a Russian girl is a fan of the german football team? o.o
I mean, I got it that most of the world suddenly celebrated us germans/ our team since this world cup, but ... somehow I can´t understand it /D
Thank you! I`m very happy to hear such words. Thomas is one of my favorite footballers around the world XD
Well... It`s pretty long story. ) It began somewhere around 2002 mundial. Yet I was living in completely no football society. Like no one around me in my ultimately girly community did not share my very very quiet passion towards football and especially german one. And + i was horrible at that time at drawing people XD
My way to adoring germans was like italian footbal - Lazio - Miroslav Close... And then german football.
Then my mom met her new bf - a german man and i found at least one person with whom i could share my interests. I`m still pretty horrible at drawing people... (yet i think i still have some creepy footballer fanarts laying somewhere in dust XD)
And well then Lahm, Mertesacker, Basti... Dream-team, really.
This year it was... That was it. An outburst of everything for me.
I found a friend, who is very loyal fan of Bayern Munchen and NGT, ofcourse. Finally a person wth similar interests, that is reachable all the time.
And well... I tried to be calm and sit with poker face all this freaking mundial - as it`s too often for NGT to come to 3 place and that`s it For exactly THIS team... And when they come towards brazilians, i sworn, that i will draw them all, if they will make it...
And... And they freakin did that! My dream-team did that T___T
And Miiirooo T___T
Ah still so many emotions.
And it was last world cup for Miro, Lahm, Per... T____T
I`m sooo freaking happy they did that. Really to tears.
Pinguin is with Ronaldo, Messi and others - Miro is my hero, Thomas, Basti, Lahm, Neuer... arrrghhh true gods of football.
I really adore them. And and all came together at this point. 2014. Everythiing.
Sorry for such a long answer. I`m still short in people, who can listen to all this XD
