drawing in Inkscape/Linux
[Edited ] Added Credits to sodipodi "RIP" however living inside of inkscape.
the very small details had been made in sodipodi,IMHO the tool of election of sodipodi for small areas, mainly quan is below of a bigger object, has more precision.
today with layers of inkscape you can skirt this easily leaving the lesser details in a separate layer.
