Thanks! I used only pencils and an eraser to smoothen out a few spots.
It took me about 3 days (a few hours a day).

I can draw more skyscrapers. Any wishes?

All this has inspired me to get back into sketching again, in fact I did two sketches today based on photographs on this forum, I've decided to experiment with shading and perspective, I haven't done either in almost a year and a half, heck it's been that long since I even got out a pencil and started drawing.

So I made a little sketch of what I'm soon doing a picture of. It's New York in 2021. My idea in my art is to give an idea on how I view if the city was controlled by myself. It's a different approach to viewing Manhattan and i'm sure if you pay attention even to the sketch that Manhattan has sure changed.



It's blurry cause of the camera quality, but I hope you enjoy it. Full Pictures with multiple views are soon, and go ahead, question the picture.

^Wow, these are all great! There's a lot of talent at SSP!

I'm a huge visual journalist, so I did some drawings in my sketchbook when I visited Portland with my girlfriend a few weeks ago. Anywhere there was a bench and some free time I did a sketch.






























You can see more of my urban sketches on my blog.

Fantastic. I love the street scenes. So much character, they're almost like old cartoons.

Here's a few I've done over the years. The color ones are drawn in Illustrator, the black & whites are pen and ink.

Seattle Space Needle... I love the way this building 'floats' in the sky.


America Airlines Arena and the W Hotel in Dallas.


I like the way the bridge turned out... the rest not so much.


The Chrysler Building, home of the penultimate condo.


I traced a over a photo in Illustrator for the Eiffel.


Dallas City Hall


A sketch of an imaginary town of Fairfax. This is the Hill District.


London. Parliament was traced over in Illustrator.


Not really urban, but this is my home made Parcheesi board. =)


The Big Blue Bear outside the Denver Convention Center.


A drawing of a high school in Fairfax.


Chicago. I accidentally drew one girl playing grab-ass with the other.


A map of my imaginary town of Fairfax.


The D&F Tower in Denver.
