This wall was made as a re-creation of poster for movie Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by Tomas Alfredson, poster design by Ego Communications. You can view poster here:

I think concept of that poster is really amazing and very creative, and even through my wall is not that good, I hope I at least reached level high enought to not be embarassment for original poster :3

To be honest, at first I though making this will be easy, because guidelines to follow this kind of style are rather clear. Only after finishing most of it, I was able to tell how my WIP was hurting my eyes and how original was not. After lot of adjusting I managed to get to state that I'm happy with, but I would never be able to make it as great as original. I also decided to add some aspects on my own, like fading of figure in the back with bg and not using red text.

Also to note, I usually put some thinking into titles of my wallpapers, but here I read about Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy title origin only after finishing my wall completely, which is why I didn't appreciated how clever original title was and made mine rather simple-minded.

Here's the scan used:
Was made in one evening :3
