An old woman that reminds me of the homeless women in scarves and big coats, pushing shopping carts full of miscellaneous items around the USSR during the Cold War.

A few people suggested gray hair, but I don't like the look of it.

Haha! It looks like a character straight from the doctor snuggles show  A mix between Miss Nettles and Woogie or something! Nice!

What can I say? This is my first official post, and I have to say, this is one sweeeeeeet piece (meriting a possible "schwing" in your general direction. Perhaps two...).

Haha, first thing I thought when I read the description was "USSR had shopping carts?"  :P

Once again, the whole thing looks really cool, dear ;)

Really nice work, full of character.

Great pixel aside.
I can see both sides of this. Fool and Mykola lived under Russian rule. Blick is American and thinks more of the stereotype of the Russian people!?

whaa ! too hot ! I like it ! cool character

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/6/2006 08:03
Mykola , I hope Blick won't kick my but=)for political disscussion  - I,ve been born in early 60-th, grow up in orphanage, run away lots of times and tried to live in the placed I shouldn't for some time before got caught, I can asure you - there weren't really.=) Well, except gypsies. Everyone lived somewhere, you know what assigned address meant as well as a work duty - there were up to  1 year imprisonment for breaking that laws - my father actually served that in 1980.=)
All crap starts  in the end of 80-th, when imperia falls.

Blick, sorry for the offtop.=)

Mykola (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/6/2006 07:29

I agree there were barely any shopping carts in stores at that time :) It'd be more fitting to see that lady carry milk bottles in a net bag :)

Still, c'mon man, by the 80's and the Cold War there were plenty of bums around in USSR.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/6/2006 00:24
I guess it is true for any country with a different customs. It is not apply to the picture itself, just to the discription of it.=)
And most valueable expression in that image I think - lack of passion of life which is so true for the olders in russia as well=) Details just make it  more informative.

Blick (Level 6 Commander) @ 12/5/2006 23:18
Could've been propaganda of sorts then, I don't know. I just distinctly remember the image of an old lady in such a situation.

And I noticed your mention of how she looks less Russian and more like she has a French influence with the bandanna not covering all of the back of her head, which is funny because I didn't exactly think she looked French, but I definitely saw that it wasn't following the idea of her being Russian as closely as the image in my own mind. Strange how a simple change of one piece of clothing did that.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/5/2006 22:35
Man, you've got confused.=)) There was no ANY shoping carts in USSR, in some big supermarkets in rare ocasion. Also, there weren't  homeless people in the USSR back then.
No biggy, it just sounds funny - like bears with balalaikas walking on the streets.=))

Great piece, very stylish.=)
