Happy 60 AK 47
Contest Directions: Russia's most popular weapon celebrated its 60th birthday, and it couldn’t come at a better time for Russia’s weapons industry. At a ceremony in Moscow’s Armed Forces Museum, a first model of the Kalashnikov rifle, the AK-47 (the first version was produced in 1947), was unveiled and placed into the hands of its creator, Mikhail Kalashnikov. The 87-year-old Kalashnikov said he was excited to greet what he called his "first-born," but also said he loves all versions of the Kalashnikov equally – the way a mother loves all her children. He’s not alone in loving Russian weapons. Russia is second in the world in weapons exports, with only the United States selling more. There are over 100 million Kalashnikovs in circulation in the world.
To celebrate the 60th birthday of AK-47, photoshop it any way you wish. Some examples are - redesign AK-47, put it in the hands of celebrities and politicians, add it to paintings and advertisements, etc.

        • Aw, man, this is just brilliant! AK-47 Robot!
        • Now that's cute, if robots holding an AK can be cute.
        • The idea is good, but my degree much shadows. seems that certain things were floating. It's just my opinion.
        • OH-OH...he's collecting trophies again. This artist lives in a floating World. Fuctionally stunning.
        • Love the steampunk look of this piece. Great job Funk. Tons of detail in this one.
        • Thanks all! I really liked chopping this one. I got the inspiration for the color scheme from LunaC's Dobbsy & Dobby chop. I loved the earthtones he used in that entry.

  • Dead Terrorist with AK47

        • Very valid point and a moving chop.
          I have never come to grips with the concept that any God would sanction murder no matter how justified in God's name. Shouting Allah Akbar are glorious words to rejoice in when a new child is born not when somebody is violenty dismembered via murder.
          If all men are God's creation, and if you believe that God is perfect, then evey man must be a masterpiece. Killing a man is thus no different than cutting the Mona Lisa to shreds.
          By not recognizing the logic of that by now, pretty much verifies the ignorance of the radical Muslim extremists. Somebody needs to go sit on a mountain and ponder the contradictions and illogics. That could probably be said for all religion but all religions are not putting themselves directly in the crosshairs of extinction by demanding the world converts or die.
          This chop moved me. Thanks
        • I agree-enough of the Political Correctness. Call it what it is and erase it.
        • Nice chop, perhaps a bit distant from the spirit of this contest.
          Over the past 60 years, AK47 has been symbolic of terrorists, partisans, freedom fighters, resistants, liberadores, 2nd Amendment freaks... you name it. "I'm armed, so I'm better than you"!

        • Unfortunately, in the case of terrorists, might doesn't make right. The theme post does not suggest that we put a positive spin on the AK47. A lot of people feel that the world would be better off without them.
        • If the weapons that should jubto the skeleton (the weapon) will be taking.
        • Congrats on silver LunaC. I had to confess that job was my favourite in this contest.
        • Nice work LunaC! Great use of sources.

          Luv the touch of him scratching in the sand.
        • Congrats Luna! very intense and effective!
        • Great chop! congrats, and keep up the good work!
        • LunaC very nice !intense ,,! congratssss!!!!
        • Impressive piece. Glad it got a trophy. Bronze congrats, Luna!

        • Clever combination of evil and cuteness in one composition.
          by the way, the girl reminds me of young Bjork!
        • Would I be out of line if I thought their is a a weirdly ... ual sub context here. {If so then I don't see it.}
        • I don't know what "ual sub context" means.
          I think the context is girls have no desire to kill the world and would turn weapons into inflatable balloons. LOL
          ...Eye of the beholder and all that
          Thanks for the comments
        • Gr8 piece, brought together wonderfully.
        • Nice work Hitman!! I must admit she's braver than I am! lol! If someone was shoving an AK47 in my face, I wouldn't be as calm as she is...
        • HA! I'd be more concerned over the atomic blast in the background hahahahahaah. But she's a faery and faeries are immune to bullets, at leas the ones in my imagination LOL
        • LOL! Great comeback Hitman!

          Really is a coool chop!
        • Congrats HiT! a mighty fine chop, love the detail and depth.
        • How'd you change that without an "Edited" notice showing up, Carl3?
          If hadn't reread through these I would have missed the correction.
          Ahhh haa! " ... ual sub context" is what you said.
          That one got by me for a sec LOL I'll tell you what. Have a seat on the couch and relax. Let's have you look at some images, called a Rorsch Test... LOL
          Dude, I get it now but I fumbled around with that, going, "what the h--l is he talking about??? Hhahhahaahah
