LOL... I have doubts they'll get built, the NIMBY's are all over the historical aspect of the site.

I think it would look better if it was a little bit thinner.

Wow, I'm impressed with your Waterclub Condominiums. Those towers are pretty prominent and were overdue for being drawn.

Why did you re-submit Ice?

The heights for Ice were lowered down to the original Mechanical heights listed by the developer.

Your latest drawing - Waterclub Condominiums East, it's absolute incredible!
It was drawn in 1:1 or it's resized from original? Very quality and sharp buildings glass effect! Nice!

Are you going to do the West tower as well? It's shorter than the other two, but has the same design elements.

Yes I'll get to that one as well, but if you've noticed I'm basically filling in the blank spaces in the Toronto diagram starting with the tallest and working downwards, the West Tower is alot shorter and it might be a long time before I get to it.

Cool. I think it's a good thing when one artist does all the drawings for a group of buildings with identical design features. It makes sense that the diagrams would all have a similar style as well.

I want to draw a bunch of shorter buildings around that height, but nothing with curves like that - too difficult for my level of skill.

Well, Koops, then you have a tremendous work in front of you, cause an editor is adding there even more 2000 buildings daily and you are going running always behind the tail.

I tried to do that with Sao Paulo and i realize it is almost impossible. For god sakes there is only me as editor for Brazil, while then I can balance well editing and illustrating work. I feel sad that although has many brazilians contributing in SSC, none contributes diagraming SSP Brazilian cities, while I asked for other Latin America people to give an help. But it is different, while I am just one person doing both for all Brazilian stuff, then I can say when to do stop or take a pause, while you have always an editor behind you, adding more and more structures. The advantage regarding me is that you both can work as a team, you do only the illustrations, and he the corrections. That is a plus of course.

I think the best is before adding too much, to complete the diagrams first but you have 2500 minimal to do. And that is too much.

I seriously doubt I'll be doing 2500 diagrams for Toronto... But I do plan on doing the taller ones at least. I also like doing drawings for other cities. It would be nice to have at least 1 drawing from every city in the world, but even that would be a hell of a job. Regarding goodlookin and me 'working together as a team', maybe in a small way that is happening, simply because I do alot of Toronto drawings and he edits the Toronto database, but I dont really see us 'working together'. In some ways we don't see eye-to-eye because he changes building heights, status, etc. and I have to revise my drawings or make new ones. I'm not blaming him, he's just doing his job. But in other ways he does help me by giving me information regarding drawings I'm working on, or planning to do in the future, or he will make a correction to a height that works in my favour. We will continue working 'together' simply because that's just the way it is.

Martins has already made a drawing of that building, and it looks damn good too.

Hey Koops,

Feel free to draw a version of Verve. I've been meaning to submit a better version myself, but I don't have the time.
