Artist propaganda image of a Fallschirmspringer, German paratrooper.  The artist is unknown to me. The man's determination comes through in this drawing and there is little detail of unit markings or specific equipment.

Another propaganda art postcard image of Fallschirmspringer actually jumping from transports in formation.  The artist shows the dynamism of the troops in action more that much detail of the equipment or unit.

the 2nd looked surprisingly US to me at first glance, though the original allegedly shows von Rundstedt visiting the west front:
