Amerika by RedOut Amerika by RedOut
Alot of experimenting here. Tried something with only 4 colours, which is why it loads so fast. It should only Its more about american based multinational corporations than the americans. If your wondering why theres a swatstika on the flag, its about the help the Nazis got from american businesses and the trading even during the war, specifically the Bush familie's businesse's supposed trading with the nazis earning them much of their wealth (I dont think the current president was involved, but if it didnt happen, he may not have been rich enough to become US president). An idea from this (and name) is from the song Amerika by by the band Rammstein. Not sure how easy it is to see, but the big thing holding the flag is mickey mouse.

I also just noticed the swatstika goes clockwise, which probably isnt right for the nazi swatstika. Id go back and fix it, but its pretty late and Ive got alot to do tomorow.

Let me know what you think. Give me some criticism on it visually.

The current Bush is much to young to have done business with Germany of WW II and the elder Bush was too busy flying American dive bombers in the Pacific Theater. The rumors they Bushs traded with the Nazis is just that, rumors.

But an excellent art piece none the less. :D

My devil's advocate question, if Amerika = Nazi Germany, why then do millions of people a year try to immegrate to the US? ;)

Keep up the good work!

That is what I interpreted with the swastika on the American flag to represent. What *does* It represent? :)

I went back and reread it, now it makes sense. And yes, it was a shame and a crime about the cooperation between the two nations businesses like that.

I like it, but I think Mickey Mouse should maybe be a little smoother. The grainyness of it kinda goes against the smoothness of the barrels on the left. I don't know, just a thought...Love the symbolism!

This Is A Very Interesting Piece, I Have To Say You Captured The Song Very Well. I like The Business (Inc) Idea You Used, Very Relative To The Song. Anyway Great Job.

Thanks. The "INC" was in there for alot of reasons, to stress that this is about the businesses, American government's interests, the heavy influence of corporations on the USA, whatever.
