The Soviet Regime

By Snowpilot
77 Favourites
This was a 2-D design project I had to do. It was supposed to be an example of decorative space, like separation of parts of the work. I decided to look at a bunch of the old soviet propaganda posters and take my inspiration from that. I had it printed at a local print shop and mounted. It's 18" x 24" and pretty communist. I'm not really a communist or anything, which is what people seem to assume after seeing this. I just simply have a thing for all the old World War II era propaganda posters.

Wow, nice work. If it wasn't 4 Stalins but Lenin, Marx, STalin and someone else it could actually resemble actual propaganda posters. Also the white ribbons kinda looks like christmas decoration which is cool xD

Thats really amazing!
I really love the Soviet posters and it looks pretty realistic to me, plus....whats wrong with communists?
I mean i'm not one but I dont think theres anything wrong with them...they just have different ideas on how the government should be run.

Oh nothing, just the fact that they have no idea how humans work, and the fact that it gives the government FAR too much power.

What do the words say and is that Lenin in lower left corner. I'm asking as a history minor because I know Stalin fabricated alot of pictures with him and Lenin together for propoganda purposes.

All in all a nice piece of art work. Bet this was ppopular during WWII

I think the inscription in poster is not in right
not "Советской власти"
right would be "Советская власть"

You've certainly achieved that classic look, but I feel a great contemporary twist from the alphas and colors, making for a great piece. Great work.

Thanks :D.

My style is typically new web 2.0 ish...a little different, but typically thats what it is. I'm trying to get more into retro and use a few more grunge looks to my work. We'll see though. All of my classes have to do with hand drawing/hand work, no digital, so I haven't really had a lot of time to work on my digital art.

Perhaps I will get to see some of your hand drawn work, and more of the digital style in this piece. :+devwatch:
