As much as I would be ideologically on the other side, this drawing is amazing, the detail, the style, simply magnificent!

I'm a Russian language and culture/history major. Unfortunately because my university likes to pretend Russian is irrelevant, we don't have enough language courses so I end up taking art courses - the point of that, is this: I see a lot of Soviet art and modern Russian art aping or mocking the Soviet style, and your work fits right in with that very nicely. That is very rarely seen outside of the artists of the era. Good job!

There was little kind about the Tsarist regime. Even taking out the backwards repressive nature of it all, famines were depressingly common in Tsarist Russia, and they were invariably famines so severe cannibalism was widespread.

Not to mention the system was so backwards and inefficient it took Lenin the rest of his life just making the country have some semblance of civilisation and it took most of Stalin's to modernise it (and even after his death the Soviet Union was still lagging in some regards, such as electronics, though they caught up later).

Love the style - so angular but expressive. Great details on each of the subjects, and nice breakup in the background with the building change. Also, have to appreciate the detail on the Mosin-Nagant 1891s...

Hey, thanks. As far as the weapons go, I'm glad that someone noticed what kind of rifle it is. They aren't perfect, of course, but I wanted to be at least somewhat accurate.

I absolutely love the Nagant; I have a 1942-manufacture 1891/30, so I immediately went "NAGANT!"

I will bet that, actually owning one, you don't think the M1891/30 kicks like a mule. Everyone who sees me with mine makes the same tired jokes about having to pop my shoulder back into place... perhaps true of M38 or M44 carbine, if you were a little girl or a boy scout.

Well, yeah, the M44 throws a hell of a fireball.
