Standoff by chasestone Standoff by chasestone
The rogue Russian general is cornered by the Secret Agent, just in time to stop the nukes...or is it?

This was my entry for the Secret Agent Challenge on cgsociety, it was a lot of fun. You can see some progress shots here

Edit: Wow thanks for the Daily Deviation!!! I really appreciate it. Thank you to everyone for visiting my site and commenting!

a note: For anyone a little insulted that the bad guys are "always the russians." This is a Cold War scenario, and the Cold War = USA and Russia. Whose to say that the Secret Agent himself isn't Russian?

Just one thing: that one representing Washington on that massive screen: Looks like someone added a letter I(which do not belong to the Cyrillic alphabet) after the first N letter(H in Russian), and it made the word read"Vashiniton".

Lovely, and very dramatic in a grand action film sense; reminds me of those spy stories that were popularised in mainstream media years ago.

Yeah, very sad to see that other countries show russians like a evil unfeeling people, but none of them ever grew up in a real Russian family. They don't know who we are. It doesn't offends my feelings, but it's sooo sad((

hah, when I see a rus words I think it's a work of russian guy :D

Wow. Awesome mood lighting. Very dramatic. It looks like a key painting for a film or video game concept.

Man, I wish this was a movie
I would love the animation and the drama of it...... You should totally make a comic out of it at least
Insane-Randomness Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Uuuuummm, actually, there are several movies like this.

007 Goldeneye is a good place to start.  Don't like that one, then I fall back to my old standard, The Hunt for Red October.

Ah, the point in the movie where the suspense is highest and time is of the essence... and the bad guy wastes 40 seconds on a big "you suck Mr Bond" speech

Is it just me or does that silhouette remind you of 007?

I'm sorry...I've got Bond on the brain...but anyway, an excellent picture! I like it :)

I hope you don't mind, but I'm currently using a slightly cropped and edited version of this (rather amazing) picture as a cover for a story on If you wish me to remove it I will of course comply post-haste. :)

I've always suspected that Donald Sutherland was a rogue Russian general.

Great work!
Btw, how did you do the tv screen line texture in the back, did you do that by hand or use some kind of tool?
FrauWolfen Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You that, ...! Scoff at us that - whether? Or not as won't recover, from this your foolish phobia?!
PavelPope Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012
always the russians (facepalm)... Как же это надоело. Рисунок, канешна, хорош (по исполнительскому мастерству), но это - русофобия чистой воды, чтобы там не писал автор (а то что его Secret Agent может быть русским, так это вообще пиндосская пропаганда, нацеленная на отечественный патриотизм). Короче говоря, burn in hell, James Bond! All hail, Mother-Russia & Father USSR!

I take a look on this pic' again and it's nice who you can think about differents scenario, we don't really know who's the bad guys.
goeliath Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i'm not Russian, and i know its a cold war scenario, but i do wonder why the Russians are always the enemy. Why not the Chinese? or some Middle Eastern Country? i never understand why that is.
PaladinMagnus Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
Modern day wise I'd say those two are always the bad guys. But think of it like this. Who's the only bastards that got the balls to pull the trigger? Russians don't fuck around and arent sneaky like the chinese and arent as stupid as the middle east. They'll always be a USA vs USSR/Russia crap becuase the two are so well matched. Perfect enemys that could destroy the world if wared with each other. But I agree that it's gotten old and over used. But still this picture is amazing and I like to think thats a russian agent. Becuase russia can handle it's self. Why? Cuz they be badasses. GO MOTHER RUSSIA and My homeland U.S.A!
