    Moar Propaganda! 20/8/08

    New post should be someone down there.

    Old post: I've always had a fascination with Communist propaganda posters, and I wanted to try and recreate this North Korean ( http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._%28179%29.jpg ) poster for an Australian video game concept I'm currently working on.
    Any Critique is helpful, so feel free to rip this to pieces.

    i feel if anything the persons head might be a little small. It makes hims seem child like, and in propaganda proportions and perspective is very important. maybe a more aggressive angle to the image would make it as impactful

    Oh snap
    hey Konskript (new name? eh, w/e)

    I've seen this like, five billion times already, but what the hey. lets see...
    I know what your style looks like, so I get the face and all that.

    Maybe the in-colouring of the slogan could be made a bit darker, it looks a little lost with the smashed parliament house in the background, and I was struggling to read it the first time I saw it, and even now I know what it says I was still looking twice. Or maybe darken the P/House, and lighten the blue in the text? anyways, I'm off to deface your profile like the irritating little git I am.

    Chordate:
    Thanks for the comment, I can see what you mean when you say childlike, I'll try and fix that problem right away.

    Amphipterra:
    It looks like I just can't escape you.

    Yeah I'm still not happy with the wording, but I'll darken the in-colour some more and see if a magical breakthrough will happen.

    It simply looks a bit childish compared to those soviet propaganda posters.
    Give the poster a more dark and dreadful look. (Atleast for a game like this )

    Less cartoon, more vector-based psychopath-pictures!

    Best wishes, Abee.

    1. eyes are not angry.
    2. mouth is yelling, not snarling: "go way you bad thing" rather than "die a-hole die"
    3. boot is stepping up, not grinding under heel.
    4. he is wearing his dad's uniform.

    note eyes and mouth:

    biggest issue I see is the original looks, to western eyes, more akin to a Japanese rubber monster movie action shot than a political statement; with understanding that it is aimed at a repressed people who haven't evolved entertainment-wise, both fall flat in conveying chest thumping conviction to "do or die".

    I like what your doing, just think the dude needs more chest, more agressiveness in the face, and some motion in his footfall.

    I like it and I also like the style and theme. I think it can be made more dramatic through a more drastic perspective. Example:

    Abee:
    Thanks for the input, I understand what you're saying about how it compare to the old Soviet stuff, I'll do some more research and try to think up some better ideas.

    Spocksleftball:
    You make very good points, and thank you for the propaganda, I'll take this back to the drawing board a bit more.
    Oh, and i just want to add, I think I might know why he looks like he is wearing his 'dads uniform'. I don't have a model, so I use myself for reference, and the combat gear I own (I'm a military freak) is a bit big on me :3

    AL-JA:
    Thanks, I'll try a more dynamic perspective, and thanks for the picture.

    Well, I guess i better start drawing some stuff up.

    I really didn't like where the previous poster was going so I re-designed it.

    Moar Propaganda! 20/8/08

    This one is based off an old Soviet poster. I think this is a huge advance from the last one which I'll admit to be pretty stale. Any input is welcome, so be sure to tell me what you think.

    *Updated with new picture*
    Changed the size of the helmet, the position of the eyes slightly, redrew the fire and re-arranged the planes

    The helmet on the first new picture looks too small for his head and asymmetrical.
    The flames on the second one don't look very threatening, I think their shapes are too rounded, some parts look more like shiny bubbles than fire.

    The figures remind me a bit of Mike Mignola's style (http://www.comicbookmovie.com/images...oycomiccon.jpg).

    I agree it looks too childish, beside that, I have no comment becouse I don't see the point of that political course, especially communism....

    If you drawn some historical event or something, that's ok, but makeing Communist posters NOW, it's reiculous to me.
