Soviet Propaganda

A type of propaganda that is particularly interesting is that from the Soviet Union. A few examples of this can be seen below.

This is for its strong reliance on red and black as well as being heavily motivated by the military. The figures in it are somewhat similar to what I am currently painting. Something else that fascinates me is the detailed style or the drawings which suggests a certain aura of importance is present. I want to have a go at painting a Soviet propaganda image in a painterly style and see where it takes me.
