Artwork Description

"Carthage waged three wars.
After the first one it was still great,
after the second one it still existed,
after the third one it had disappeared."

(free translation after Bertold Brecht, German author)

ah your right! It is indeed a message system mess-up. As I was saying, I love the effects and environment. The background nukes are very stylish. Great job!

The name, well, got some inspiration from an Animatrix movie for that. Yeah, like everything good, I stole it. Though the original says something different, only the word structure is the same.

Thanks. The idea worked out pretty well, I think. I do very little monochromatic pictures so it was also some kind of test how I'll fare.
