Back in the USSR - Mario by Thrakks Back in the USSR - Mario by Thrakks
Back in the U.S.S.R. - Song by the Beatles

This is my contest entry for the 8 Days A Week contest [link]

(A DeviantArt logo is a badge that is on Mario's chest)

A slightly updated version of my older one here - [link]

I added new effects and I feel just generally made it look better.

Tell me if you think its better/worse than the old version, I'm curious.

I saw a flash that said Mario might actually be communist. The red star on the flag in the game is a dead giveaway.

Haha yeah, it was something like that that gave me the idea for that pic.

Yeah seriously, and the flash said Mario looks exactly like Stalin which he does in a freaky way he does look very similar to Stalin.

Bwahaha, there's something so awesome about this. Mario's such a capitalist icon, and you put him with the reds. xD

Heheh, cool, though as I said a while back, it's a skull, despite looking like a peace sign on the NES.

And if Mario's a commie, then why is he the sole supporter of a Kingdom? Communism was used in the Soviet Union to eliminate Kingdoms...

This picture isnt supposed to make complete sense, did you ever goto that communist mario website I linked on my old version of this picture? It explains why. Though I dont think it mentions Peach or anything. =P

Dude! That reminds me of Hitler for a second! lol. Anyway, that's nice. Although I try to submit my drawing in the contest, I cannot because my brothers take over everything and I don't have a scanner. :cry: Anyway, nice job. :]

Hehe thanks, thats unfortunate about your scanner :(. Thanks for :+fav:'ing mine. Though mine wasnt officially inspired by the Beatles or contest, I had made an earlier version last year which I figured fit the criteria :D
