    The following is just a short example (very dirty couture - I know), now I am quite busy so please tell me weather you like it or not.
    I really don't want to invest hours into something useless. Greetings.

    Interesting... simple... a little dark though.

    Agreed. The beauty is in the simplicity.

    Strizh, please work on that them of yours. You are on the right track. And Garry is right, a little bit lighter would look better.

    Strizh, great work, I really like it!
    If it's possible, though, try to make it a little brighter.
    There's no need to add any other vehicles, planes, people - it's already is simple but good.

    TheArmenian, can you please share your red photo of WW2-era soldiers? that's a great picture, I would love to have it in my collection Smile

    Unfortunately, I did not save that photo. I remember I found it by googling "Victory day" in English and in Russian. Just can't locate it anymore. Sorry.

    If I come across it again, I will forward it to you.

    I just found this one that is not the cliché raising the flag one. Maybe you will like it too.

    It's very good. I would bring the star on top of the background a bit. Because opacity is low it makes overall image darker like it was mentioned above

    No problem, thanks in advance. Smile

    BTW, your photo doesn't show (at least for me, it's Error 403 - Forbidden. Probably one has to be registered at that forum)

    Funny, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    Thought a WWII theme would be best:

    A deadline extension is one option if there are not enough to choose from but personally I think bolt and the Armenian and Werewolf have offered some very good options... I would be happy with any of the below:














    And



    In no particular order...

    Perhaps a small extension?

    I agree with GarryB, Vlad is it possible to get 1 week extension? I was just so busy the past 3 weeks, I just didn't have enough time to submit some designs. I want to crank out at least 5 designs by next Friday.

    Both words are correct.
