Portal Propaganda Blue by GarthFT Portal Propaganda Blue by GarthFT
A companion piece to The Red propaganda piece I did.  As with the first one I was given a lot of leeway, so I tried to drum up something that matched the fear of communism that was prevalent in most propaganda stuff.  Before you ask, no I'm not espousing any political viewpoints.  I'm just making art.  It does make me laugh though.

Hi,
I love your poster, and i'd like to make a poster for my room, will it be okay for you to send me a higher quality of it?

Thanks in advance and great work again

This is great. I love how it keeps the atmosphere of the old propaganda posters, but I can't help but feel bad for the poor little turrets. Very clever piece, though.

This is probably the cutest propaganda poster I've seen in a while. I also appreciate the irony in that all turrets believe themselves different, and therefore are the same. It's funny actually, to quote GLaDOS. ^^

Though now, feel extra bad for the oracle turret, because he really was different. :(

So by the logic of that poster, if a turret believed it was normal, it would automatically be special and different compared to the others.
So, as long as the majority of turrets doesn't change, no matter what a turret think of itself in relation to the other turrets, it's always wrong.
This make me sad for some reason.

Hmmm...There is a bit of truth in the statement, but this would be terrible as real propaganda.  =P  "You are poor so we can be more important!"  might lead to revolution.  Over-analysis aside, I like it.  :3

Nice! I love Portal! Love the art style! BTW Did you use Photoshop or Illustrator to make this?

Thanks! Great Work!

Photoshop.  I suppose it would have been smarter to do it in Illustrator, I suppose.  May go back and do that very thing if I decide it needs to be scaled up for print purposes.

boy ain't that the truth. i see more inequality these days than i ever noticed before. so i really don't get why people 'whine' (for lack of a better word) for equality when we all are so different from each other. i'm a total odd ball, have a disability and i know i'm different and don't really care. God made us all different. it's life. love it or hate it. reality can't be denied.

Yes I totally agree with you! It's this Political Correctness movement that's creating this! The concept of Political Correctness is so flawed that we are brainwashed to think that we should celibrate our differences as long as we all have the same opinoin as one another, because to highlight differences is deemed to be "prejudice". Which is creating inequality in and attitudes free speech!
