Towards a Brighter Future by Bistromatic Towards a Brighter Future by Bistromatic
Friendship is Magic seems to invite a lot of satirical political discussion and i like old propaganda aesthetics so one thing lead to another...

I attempted to recreate an old soviet poster, using mostly of captures from the show.

The font at the top is Wadim Giant by Jens Nink

There's also a grunge texture in there, according to tinyeye and the best of my knowledge it's by Princess-of-Shadows

Would you have any objection to the Manehattan Project using this in our upcoming FO:NV/FO:E Mod "Gardens of Equestria?" You would receive full credit of course.

Nice one, although I think this appears more along the lines of Soviet poster you find in games instead of those that existed in reality.

Good, but in terms of functionality, (if it is, in fact, Soviet or Communist related) it's null. Celestia, being a monarch, could not gain support of a Communist group, as a monarch is seen as a head of a centralised state, whereas Communism calls for the absence of a centralised state. If it's Socialist, then it would indeed be politically correct.

Why does everyone see us Celestites as Soviets? I always pictured a more facist view of us :D

I'd like to thank you so much for making this image! I am a democratic-socialist myself and have a bit of an old nostalgic indulgence for the old 'socialist-realist' images like those ones even if I was by no means a 'political supporter' of old Soviet Union after Stalin took over or North Korea today. Being I'm also a brony I got this image printed on a T-shirt and wore it yesterday at my local brony meet up and then continued to wear it that evening when I attending a film night with some comrades to watch a film about the Russian Revolution :D

This is hilarious and awesome.

I'm totally going for something like this with the fancomic I am working on --I even had an idea for flags like that, with her symbol.

I love the halftone textures and the colors. :heart:
