Gun Dreams by Ragathol Gun Dreams by Ragathol
Another Lucky Star fanart, a request from the Raki-Suta imageboard... Konata in 1940's Russian uniform with a Mosin Nagant sniper rifle. The internets are interesting sometimes.
I threw in Kagami and a lame reference to the theme song for good measure.

Ink, Photoshop, ~ 6½ hours total.

@Kyoto Animation, the original creator of the manga I need to check that shit out some day and MOTHER RUSSIA

I too have a thing for cute girls in vintage military uniforms. Comrade Konata!

Для меня вы, кажется, думают, что Россия все о коммунизме. Вот как я, но почти все не коммунист.
()To me you seem to think that russia is all about communism. That's how i am but almost everyone is not a communist.

I really don't, it's just playing with the old WW2/cold war clichés... No offence meant. Also, this was a request, so it's not my idea from the start.

Red star. Red goddamn star. Now I understand why that one fanfic has Tsukasa join some underground Communist cult that's trying to bring back Mother Russia.

Great pic; your use of the theme cracked me up. Let's get cherry pie.

(Is "Komand'r" an obscure Teen Titans joke, or is Konata just being casual?)

Thanks. It's just "commander" with Russian accent. Reference: Red Alert.

I'm not sure you actually had to take out every little piece... but this being the Russian army, I guess it's likely.

Oh get off your high horse Comrade Kagami! I doubt you could even work a C96 Mauser!

I like some gun for their design, but other than that they've never really fascinated me... This still turned ok, I think.

It's the designs that catches people's attention about certain guns.;) Great job on the disassembled Mosin Nagant!:thumbsup:

I'm unsure why I find this humorous. Other than the red star, the two things share nothing in common. I'm probably just tired...

In Soviet Russia, gun dismantles YOU.

I love your graphics for the BG (nice attention to detail opportunities like Kagami's ribbons). And much, MUCH ♥ for taking the time to draw all that hardware in correct perspective (it's a painfully easy thing to neglect). Even like how you indicated shiny vs. matte materials.

Hmmm, can't help but think the ground could use a more speckled look...? I only say this because there's so many things about this picture that look right that maybe there's one last thing? ^_^;

I used a concrete texture from Quake 3(I think?) for the floor. Maybe I should update my texture folder a bit...

They might not all be in correct proportion to each other, but I thought it was funnier than just drawing the gun, when I found such excellent reference...
