One of the best russian/soviet characters.
Dynamite image! I had discovered this artwork on a Youtube clip about Black Lagoon cosplay which also included renderings. I don't know if this was production art by the studio that created the Black Lagoon series or fan art but it's awesome to see Balalaika when she was younger leading her troops into battle. She was such a great leader to her men that even when the Soviet Union broke apart, they still remained a tight unit, loyal to her. I always thought if a movie was ever made of Black Lagoon, it would be very difficult to find an actress who could be that character, Sigourney Weaver would probably be the only one who could pull it off.
But on another note, shouldn't Balalaika be holding the SVD?
Great picture though, kudos for finding it though
