Fire Nation propaganda poster by jdeberge Fire Nation propaganda poster by jdeberge
Hey again,

Here's my entry for the Fire Nation Propaganda & Resistance Poster Art Contest on Avatar Spirit [link] .

When I read their suggestion of using old WWII posters for inspiration...one poster immediately popped into my head [link] . When I was in highschool I loved looking at the propaganda poster used in WWII, especially the ones that our enemies made, so this contest was right up my alley...I couldn't pass it up. I really wanted to go all style heavy with this one. I had a lot of fun demonizing the Avatar (I hope I don't tick off any fans).

All in all I had so much fun making it, I don't even care if I win. I hope to a couple more pics in this style.

I love this picture and the idea behind it. (The different propaganda techiniques were interesting in high school for me too. And this one is Avatar related! Bonus!)

If you could sir, that is if it strikes your fancy at all. Please do an action shot of Zuko and Sokka with proper short 1940's haircuts under their M1 Infantry Helmuts as 442nd Nisei Soldier's. With properly grim and angry looks on their faces as they mow down Waffen SS with their B.A.R. and Thompson.

Though it would be a truly epic blend of genres sir... I regret to inform you that it does not strike my fancy at this particular time.

You've definitely studied Nazi German propaganda poster's depicting the Wagnerian Warrior inspired German Soldaten slaying the "supposedly" evil and villainous Jew's.......................... Good take on history.......Now do one that depicts an "Imperial Japanese Army" propaganda poster. With the way the way Hirohito's Propaganda machine lied up a storm.

oooh... close, but no cigar. I took the Avatar poster idea from a Russian propaganda poster here...

[link]

It's the 14th one down from the top that says: "Mercilessly, we will humiliate and destroy the enemy!"

TEEHEE, I love WWII propaganda posters. I know it's weird for me to say it (it being a war and all), but a lot of it kind of was funny.

Nah nah... it's not weird, those old WWII posters are funny 'cause their just blatant propaganda right in your face.
