Stars and Firebars

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - This is contrary to yesterday's sub-title.

I quickly realized defending the Confederate States of America was akin to defending Koopa Kingdom: Both are dismissed as evil — without debate — by their foes, who enjoy mainstream popular support. So why not actually do some sprite work? 

Confederate States of America flag in Super Mario Bros.
Beautiful, huh?

I wouldn't normally respect Super Mario Bros. enough to use its sprites for something, but... here we go.

Don't you see the resemblance?
I guess I technically got the same number of stars as Starmen that the real version of the flag does. Yeah! Too bad fire bars aren't symmetrical or anything, but I don't see you having any better ideas (unless you leave a comment, of course).

Don't even try to say that you wouldn't know what the Stars and Firebars were supposed to represent if I didn't explicitly tell you. It isn't that bad! (Note how my opinion of my own artwork deterioriates the more I write about it...)

This is probably going to be the last article Ludwig writes on KoopaTV about the CSA, but who knows. If you'd like to see more artwork of Ludwig's, check out his deviantARTHe also hand-writes his Miiverse posts, so follow them at NNID PrinceOfKoopas.
