...wall papers YOU!!

Finally finished after ~3 days of work in total - my sort of tribute to the Red Alert series by Westwood/EA. Started working on this when still waiting for RA3, with the "In Soviet Russia" jokes in mind. :P In the end I've decided to minimize the typo as much as possible (originally it was the full line bloated across almost half the screen, ending "... web codes YOU!!")

Two versions - 1680x1050, 1600x1200 - should be available as download. Still looks very good when downscaled :P

Stock photos from sxc.hu, font from dafont.com

edit: started working on a 1920x1200 version (which will take its time, because I've made a "tiny" mistake during the process so far...)

I'd rather have the Soviet Union back than current Russia. The USSR was a lot less 'evil' and a lot more interesting.

неправильное представление иностранцев о России...
с одной стороны даже смешно смотреть картинки, где изображены матрёшки, медведи, шапки ушанки, водка... с другой - это до жути печально.

Ну вот так и собирается по крупицам представление чужестранцев о России... Даже думать страшно, сколько миллионов людей считают, что абсолютно все русские жрут водку (и спирт) литрами, обнимаются с медведями, танцуют гопак (да-да, тот танец с "хождением" вприсядку) и матерятся... Ах да! Ещё и носят шапки-ушанки (хотя они довольно тёплые, так что их носят).
Русские живут не в Советской России (такого понятия нет, так как СССР развалилось на осколки и самый большой из них - Россия) и не при коммунизме.
Такие картинки приводят меня в недоумение и приносят неприятные ощущения.
Спасибо за внимание... (Мои же слова из комментария к другой картинке)

I saw the entire Red Alert saga flash before my eyes when I stared into the hammer and sickle too long. Now I'm going to play on each of them for unhealthy amounts of time like the good old days. Ah, nostalgia.
