Mother Russia's Victory : WORLD'S FREEDOM

Can I draw Mother Russia releasing French Marianne from Lady Liberty
(I'm French and my country is one of USA's favorite targets,CIA-run leaders wants us to study in English, and so USSR noqtalgia is growing) after she defeated Lady "Liberty" ?
or Russian bear saving French cock's from the claws of American eagle ?

Ouch, our French.
We just might have to out last her.


Cruel humor. Anyway, I like the sketch. Now, can Rossiya-Matushka go again Britannia, or Italia Turrita, or maybe Germania?

How about the tougher American, Columbia?

I actually really like this, I wish I had sketching ability like this, it's bloody amazing, especially the cloth and the shadowing, overall a beautiful piece, and yes Mother Russia is badass.

You really want perspective? Here goes:

Yes, technically there was a winner... the cold war was a conflict about two economic systems, and clearly the side which provided more freedoms and material abundance for their citizens managed to stay afloat, whereas the Soviet block with their planned production economy and dictatorial government collapsed. And talking about the cold war being "a sad mess" is true- but since it at least prevented nuclear war through M.A.D and no actual war was fought between USSR and the US it can still be considered as a good state of affairs. Lots of other conflicts were sparked by it, like Vietnam and Korea, but it was still far less than what could have been. Plus, the nuclear arms race produced the space race as a byproduct, so you could say that the cold war did a lot to advance the whole human race by increasing the resources used for exploration of space. This in turn sparked new technologies like the GPS system which was originally a military guidance system, but is now mainly used by ordinary people's smartphones to tell them where to go! So in ways, we all got something from the cold war, even if it was just "a sad mess"... :)

But that aside- this pic was just made because I wanted to make a pic of these two statues fighting. No real deeper meaning was ever intended here, and if I wanted to be somehwat historically accurate, then the situation in the pic should be reversed. :D
