first of all: unfinished due to lack of time - had to be in the office this weekend, final version after the challenge then.

looking for a motive for the challenge i didn't want to do the obvious and just pick one of the monuments for the numerous victories vs. france from the days when we didn't have football =)

and as i've always had some commie pixel on my todo-list i decided to do the karl marx monument, located in chemnitz, some 40 minutes from here (formerly 'karl-marx-stadt' in the gdr-era).

so, no, despite my fascination for these guys it neither is bud spencer nor ilkke =)

oh, to satisfy one's curiosity for background information: the monument was built in 1971, is 13 meters large (with the head having a diameter of roughly 7 meters) and stands in front of a 95-tile bronze-mosaic (bronze-pixels, guys!) that bears "workers of all lands unite!" in 4 languages.

tools: grafx2

wip-animation: soon

The real structure does have a base, but there's no room in it - though you can't even see it now cause some artists wrapped it into polythene sheet. I come from the town were this monument stands, level 1 riddle - gnihihi
Instant fav +all dots <3

Nice!

Is that based on a real structure?As a building it looks rarther odd to say the least,you can realy see the contrast between the finished head and unfinished everything else.

It beats the crap out of mine, that's for sure! ;o; But the hair shape's a little illogical.

Finished or unfinished, it's better than the other entries.

How many communists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Lightbulbs are a vice of the bourgeoisie, capitalist pig!
