война-автомат!

(ENG) Hi there! I drew this guy weeks ago as a quick sketch. Then, when I started doing some rendering, the idea of giving the "arachnid tank" a Sci-Fi Soviet Union type of look came along. It seemed natural to go all the way with this stylistic decision by emulating an hypothetical propaganda poster of that alternative future. The slogan (hopefully) reads: "We will safeguard the peace on the earth with the War Robot!". I apologize beforehand for possible misspellings (feel free to correct it). Critics are more than welcome! Don't be shy and help me improve!
Note: all the political symbols and acronyms have been used for stylistic reasons alone.

(EUS) Ieupala! Duela aste batzuk zirriborro azkar modura marraztu nuen honakoa. Gero, marrazkia lantzen hasi nintzenenan, armiarma tankeari zientzia fikziozko Sobietar Batasuneko itsura emateko ideia bururatu zitzaidan. Zentzuzkoa zirudien beraz, erabaki estilistiko hori azkenera eramateko, konposizio finalari etorkizun alternatibo hortako propaganda politiko itxura ematea. Esloganak dio (edo hala espero dut behintzat): "Munduan bakea mantenduko dugu Guda Errobotarekin!". Zuzenketarik eduki ezkero, bota lasai! Beste edonolako komentarioak ere ongi etorriak dira, beti bezala. Ez zaitezte lotxatiak izan eta lagunduidazue ikasten jarraitzen! Aio!

(ESP) Aupa! Hace unas semanitas que boceté esta especie de tanque arácnido. Más tarde, al empezar a trabajarlo un poco, la idea de hacerlo en un estilo Sovietico-futurista me vino a la mente. Me pareció lo suyo llevar esta decisión estética al extremo, creando un hipotético póster propagandístico de ese futuro alternativo. El eslogan dice (o eso espero): "Salvaguardaremos la paz en la tierra, con el Robot de Guerra!". Si alguien observa alguna corrección a hacer, adelante. Como siempre, permanezco sediento de critica.. no seáis tímidos y ayudadme a mejorar! Gracias!

I saw this a while ago, and didn't comment for whatever reason.

I think this thing is totally boss - but of course I have a little thing for the Soviet Union (the design, Red, the uniforms the whole bit).

But being Russian and ridiculous, I'd almost expect more guns on this thing. Bigger guns. Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 has some great designs for Soviet Machines of Death. Look it up if you haven't heard of it.

Hey! You know what? you're totally right.. this thing has no visible guns despite is supposed to be a War Machine.

I must admit I hadn't heard of that game before (I was never a big fan of strategy games... I was mostly into 1PS). But I really have to thank you for the hint: I've seen a lot of kick-ass vehicle designs in there!

Thanks a lot Leisha!!

incorrectly written, correctly be so:
отстроим мир на земле вместе с боевыми роботами

Thank you Fergus! I did the best I could with various translation tools, but I was sure it was likely to be incorrect. I didn't mean to butcher your language... Thank you very much for taking the time to show me the correct writting, as well as for taking a tour through the site!
