It's actually just paper - thin paper, printed on my old B&W printer. It gave it a really cheap and tattered look - which was just the look I was going for!

Thanks, too!

I like it - the television screen is nice but looks more like a poster (unless its meant to be a poster)

I remember 1984 from high school english - probably the only book I read that was interesting.

Yes, it is indeed a poster, as described in the books.

I went mainly - if not totally - by the book in this, and in terms of everything else it was my imagination.

Although I have no idea what this was based off, I bet it was special.

Whoa, nice job on poster, CG! Is the character on the left supposed to be Julia? Big Brother looks freakily harsh. Wasn't the mustache supposed to obscure his expression, so that citizens didn't know how harsh the Party was?

You always know your way with random MOCs, CG. I like the panelling effect on the ground. I thought you made the poster with legoes! Wink But, I have never heard of that book! Razz

It's meant to be a Prole - or as Marx called them, the Proletarians. Wink

Cheers, all! And yep, they were overalls, Sial.

Ah a MOC of the classics I'm liking it! Luckily this never happened in 1984, yet we got close to it with Bush.

You mean he pointed out your idiocy? Where? It looks like he's agreeing with you... Which means he's taking part in your idiocy. Surprised

I really do love it! A little frazzled on the edges, but hey, it's convincing. Wink

Great CG, It seems very acurate, like Sial said with the overalls. But in the book it describes the streets as being dirty, just a suggestion. Smile

Wait, if I remember correctly, Big Brother looked reassuring and kind, the kind of person you would love, hence "I love Big Brother" being said so frequently. Hmm... This guy looks like the kind of person you want to throw a shoe at. Both your shoes at, in fact. While he gives a speech. In a foreign country.

Anyways, nice MOC. You should make the white room or the place where they torture that guy (forgot his name...) next.

Dang, I need to read that book again. It's been over a year.
