Read before Post:
This picture was made to counter these two other pictures: [link] and [link]

See a patern there? ;)

I do not have anything against russians.

I'm pretty sure this picture will interpretated as a direct attack on the russian culture and nation. But see.... the same freedom of expression the artists, who made the before mentioned pictures, are shielding with, it's the same I have.

I did this purely for the hell for it. I didn't thought about repercusions until I was ready with it. ^^;

Anyway.... If anyone doesn't like it (Most likely russians and russian wannabes) then don't watch it. Plenty of other stuff on the internet. ;)

Picture description:
NATO has invaded the Soviet Union! And has reached the walls of the Kremlin itself. It's an all-out victory!

Yay for freedom, democracy and capitalism! :dollarus: :dance: (Bit of sarcasm there)

Lots of hammers and sickles shall be destroyed now. :evillaugh:

We see three soldiers from Poland, Germany and the US rising the NATO flag over the damaged wall of the Kremlin right in front of the Red square.

On Red square an american M1A2 Abrams MBT and a Norwegian Army Leopard 2A4 are moving towards areas of Moscow still in Soviet power. Over the air we have a AH-64 Apache of the Dutch Air Force looking for soviet armor that might be hiding around the russian capital.

The flag rise is based on the Soviet russian flag rise over the damaged Reichstag during the Battle of Berlin in World War 2. Yup... playing a bit with irony here. ;)


Ok... So I'm pretty done with it. Took a while to draw, took longer to color. You guys have no idea how complicated it was to draw Saint Basil's cathedral. ^^; I'm no good at simple buildings much less such fine pieces of art as that cathedral. But thanks to blur and a bit of fog (My favourite resources to hide lack of progress) they look good. Not quite like the real thing but I guess it's ok. :)

I used the digital camouflage brush from :iconxenosilence:
Rain effect is from Corel PhotoPaint.

Allright... that would be pretty much it. I don't have anymore linearts to color and I haven't finished any of those I have started during the coloring of this and previous projects. And sadly I don't plan to work on them until I get back from Germany around early December. So this will be my last deviation of the month (Except for fotography) and I will not be fully active during November. :)

I hope you like this and if you don't... bear in mind that my mail box dedicated to death threats and bashing is already quite large. :XD:

See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

Edit: Possible Modern Warfare 3 ending?
After the events of MW2 it'd be logical if the US went on to invade Russia in retaliation for their invasion of the US east coast.
'Though I think they would rather go with the US Flag instead of the NATO one. =P

Edit 2: Nope... No Mission in Moscow in MW3. We get instead a stupid mission in some Siberian mine. Ahhhhh... and I so wanted to blow up that Zakhaev statue in Red Square.

When I am browsing the deviantArt and found this art. What can I say? 
Wow. I am shocked. This picture is making some emotion background for me.The Very good artwork, especially the rain and afro-soldier together with the other soldiers, but I think it will be great to add to it some Arabic soldiers, perhaps .

1. Moscow is no match for the soviet union, they have a large territory, ~20% from the planet Earth, so they can retreat further in their lands. Also they have a largest resource base on the Earth and their peoples no rich, even I can say - poor...... :(

2. Soviet Union has lost ~30 millions of peoples in the hand made famine, ~20 millions in Great Purge, ~30 millions in the WW2, because of their `brilliant` strategy.. and very cheap human life politics... So I have no doubt that loses in the war with NATO will be even greater of all together loses mentioned above. ...

3. No , only US flag on the picture will be much more worst.

4. Kremlin will be destroyed by soviet unions military forces because of avoiding that picture, so it more likely will be nato's flag over the ruins. Church will be destroyed by soviet army too and will be showed like it was done by NATO forces.

I am pacifist, so I praying the God, Allah, Holly Buddha, Saint Jesus, and other gods that end this horrible conflict in the some 'peaceful' way to avoid such indescribable loses.
I have nothing against Russians, I like Russian culture (but no soviet culture...) , russian songs,, but really now happening something horrible with russian governments they turned way backward and started to rebuild that evil empire - Soviet Union... :( . My heart is crying about that.

They nearly lost against the pathetic Nazies because of their undescribable horrible crimes against their own army and their own peoples. A Soviet peoples must to fight not only against Nazies but also to fight for just surveillance  in the communist's nightmare.... That was something like in the middle of hammer and anvil. Peoples that escaped from Hitler's SS was an easy target for NKVD and so on... The Fear, the pain, the suffering is an ingredients that you can not build a good army from it.

The present NATO is many times powerful then Nazie's German was , but I have no illusions if the same honor less butchers on the rule of Russia , no good thing will be in the future.... this is the truth.

NATO won "The Revolution, the Barbary wars, the Mexican war,  the civil war, the spainish war, WW1, WW2, Korea, several invasions during the cold war, the Gulf war the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan... "? M.B "the Gulf war the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan" yep but, do you think that the victory over the weaker countries so that's cool? Well, then the war against civilians, cool too,  by your logic. And yet, I must say that in the second world war you do not win, you just crap and dropped atomic bombs on Japan.

Speaking about the "freedom of expression" as you say. I respect it... to the certain extend. Don't you think it must not insult other people? I don't defend the picture with the Liberty statue, that inspired you to draw this, but it is not a reason to abuse others' patriotic feelings.
Just thoughts aloud...

Haha, now that I have some maturity to look at this in retrospect--this is much more a plausible event than, say, raising a Soviet flag over the Potomac.

After all, there have been at least two successful invasions that reached Moscow involving major countries of NATO. They could do it again, at least, much more likely than the reverse. And they would certainly be no less politically motivated as the Warsaw Pact to have dinner in the White House. :D

Maybe but I wouldn't bet so much on it. Russia is still a huge country and considering the difficulty NATO had in reigning a backward country like Afghanistan and keep things under control in Iraq, I don't think a conquer of Russia is feasible for any nation. Not under the current conventional norms of warfare. NATO would need to go ape shit with its military might on Russia without considering civilians into the mix, roughly how it was during WW2 when they fought against Japan and Germany.

And even then, Russia is just so too effing big, it can't be conquered.

You're technically correct--the last 20 years have mostly served to prove that occupations are far more challenging than military technology, particular computer technology, promised us they would be (or perhaps people are just moderately more civilized than when the Belgians took the Congo just to have rubber plants). 

That being said, I have no doubt NATO would have a  easier time of conquering the Russian Federation then of, say, the Russian Federation--or even Russia and all of its military partners (Belarus, Armenia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan--not exactly the Entente) could conquer the United States. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that NATO is more likely to succeed at conquering Russian than the CSTO occupying Germany, France, and Poland. Geography the space might be smaller, but the population density (and the population surpassing all of Russia), combined with the sheer industrial economic output, and the incredible destructiveness of technology available to those states (rivaling anything in the Russian arsenal just short of the atomic bomb, and if we're throwing nukes at eachother, no one is going to conquer anyone--and besides, Russia's nuclear doctrine inherited from the USSR is purely response-strike oriented, and all their systems are organized as such, so I doubt they'd go first). There isn't enough industrial might, or people, to re-enact the bizarre Battlefield/Call of Duty fantasies of a Russian occupation of Europe, much less of the world (after all, like you said, a massive state can struggle and stumble in Afghanistan). 

Hence why I think this picture is a lot more realistic than the red flag raised over the Potomac. What's more likely--the conquering of Moscow, or the conquering of Washington, the seat of power for 45% of the world's military expenditures? 

It's fun artwork either way.

Honestly, it's stupid to invade other countries as of now. NATO can barely hold their own borders intact, why the hell would we want to annex someone else and need to deal with governance of their lands?

That's another good reason. It's just pointless.

The only reason to attack Russia would be to prevent it from attacking others. But yeah Russia would have similar issues. It already has some trouble trying to reign control over some of its territories.
