[seal] I'm an egg

[fanart] Prypiat, Part 1/?

This picture actually has quite a story that goes along with it.

About a month ago, I was strolling about in a bookstore that had a photo book in the manga referencing section, which I picked up and flipped about. It showed a ruined city--rusted, paint peeling off the walls like "abortive flowers," an empty, yellowed amusement park, etc. I was in awe at this photo book, I wondered where this set was and how they went through all the trouble--

--and then I saw on the cover the title. Chernobyl.

So here's a, um, series of pics (if I even muster up the strength/patience to do the rest of them). I got the photos for the backgrounds off Google.

The other day, I stumbled upon a page about Soviet Culture. It was very interesting, and there were quite the amount of propaganda posters for display. I was wondering why nobody had drawn related fanart, since it shows such an representative part of the CCCP history.

So I drew!
