Pro-Demoman Propaganda Poster

My third and final poster for the TF2 Propaganda contest.
I had so many ideas but so little time :(

I like this one. Funny, and looks pretty good.

The Soldier is based on a screenshot of a posed and slightly inflated Garry's Mod ragdoll that I painted over and modified in the process, in Photoshop ofc.

The message is rather outrageous, but that's what propaganda is for, to make your enemies look bad :P

EDIT September 2014: Apparently this was featured on Russian television as an example of actual historical US propaganda. It's an easy mistake to make, I'm sure.

If you like this silly old TF2 thing, check out some other silly old TF2 things that move! Over here:…

I remember in the 1939 Soviet film titled, "Alexander Nevsky", German Knights of the Holy Roman Empire were throwing babies into fire to be burned to death.  The book titled "Night" talked about Nazis burning mass graves of babies at Auschwitz Death Camp.  They even through live babies into the burning pits.  Soldiers were "Baby Killers" long before the Vietnam War.  War is terrible.

Yesterday, my world history teacher used this in as propaganda slide show and explained how it represented the Germans. I turn to my friend and almost die laughing because I read it and she was looking into it way too far.

You can tell that you made a really good poster when actual teachers and documentaries mistake your poster for being actual propaganda.

How long do you think it will take for the guys who made the documentary realize and fix their mistake? Nice piece btw!! ^_^

I think you should make a poster featuring the Heavy, and make it really pro-Russia looking, to counterbalance the whole thing.

That'd be hilarious.
