    I am most flattered! This is Great. I like your take on the "Net-Man".

    I thank You dear Skylar for Your wonderful painting which, all of sudden, inspired me this fast imaginary drawing. I found interesting, however horrible this kind of entertainment could look today, that many differents shows went on in Roman arenas and gladiators had specialties and great fame like today's most famous sportsmen and stars.
    In this case I made mistakes though . The retiarius (net-man) had no helm or leg protection and he usually fighted against a chaser, a secutor (or a myrmillo) with a sword, helm, often with a wide brim to reduce the risk to be immobilized by the ballasted net of the retiarius and some protections on the armed arm. So a fight between speed, agility and ability against sheer heavy force and power, like a corrida, but a bull neither dull and not at all doomed ....

    Dear Anna, I'm afraid princes and kings where not less cruel and bloodythisrsty than gladiators in the past, only mostly more arrogants and often not openly exposing to risks or making reliance on themselves for fighting their battles ... Thank You!

    Thank You, dear Sandra. Still looking for a drawing procedure and style to get better and more real pencil like drawings though ...
