Very nicely done. At first blush, though, I question the basic assumption behind this work. Large, heavy machines are very vulnerable, ...

For such a simple piece, this drawing demonstrates an astonishing degree of mastery. Every stroke tells a tale. Nothing could be added ...

The Colours of Autumn - Gymnopedie No.1


What makes great music, or art, is not that it's difficult, but just that the composer or artist got it right, absolutely right, unquestionably right, so that it grabs you by the throat and won't let go.

Incidentally, the title apparently is the French form of Gymnopaedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gymnopae…

_______________________________________

From the article:  "...γυμνός (gymnos, "naked" or "unarmed")..."  yields a bit of insight.   I've always heard that in the ancient Olympic Games, the athletes performed "naked".    Probably a more apt translation is that the athletes performed "unarmed".  I believe the point of the games was to accomplish the purposes of war, but without the need for actual killing, i.e. to determine which of two tribes or nations had the greatest military power.   That information would be of great importance in diplomatic negotiations.   In that respect the ancients were more civilized than we are.

Do you think that this illustration about procrastination is correct? :D

LOL this late reply is not an instance of procrastination. Really.  I just don't often read my front page, I usually go straight to the Messages menu.

I don't understand the illustration, maybe because part of it is cut off.

The mechanism of procrastination in my case is usually the "But first --" ploy.   I set out to do what I know is important, but first there is this other little thing, which ends up taking all the time I have to spare that day.    It may go several levels deep, thus:      X1 butfirst(X2 butfirst(X3 butfirst(X4 butfirst( ... ))))

Project abandoned.  Lineart looks good to the human eye, but to software implementing a "flood-fill" operation, the regions are leaky.
