I know its not great but i like it. the main problem is the closest building's perspective point is different than the rest.

Wow, nice sketches everyone. I'm part of a group that does urban sketches on location-- Urban Sketchers. There are a lot of great drawings of urban sites all over the world there. They also have a Flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/urbansketches/

You guys should all check it out or join up-- I love seeing what people are drawing around the world.

That's a shame. Nice drawings though.

Actually no, I drew since I was a toddler, I used to draw the Twin Towers, ESB, and Chrysler Building with a bunch of generic boxes, my version of New York!

No they're all on average sized computer paper actually.

Weeeell, Here a more unique take on Urban Art.\
This was an Art project I did 2 years ago. It looks like a Pile of trash, but when light hits it from the right angle you could see an outline of the pre-911 skyline of new york. It went to an art show locally but fell apart slightly, especially the right side skyline (trump tower is like the only thing left). When you look closely st it you can see articles of things like war, global warming, something about the end of the world, religion, famine, AIDS, etc. Also note that what is supposed to be the statue of liberty is a toy soldier.

\

with car headlights (bad angle of light)\

check out my Flickr site. http://www.flickr.com/photos/chitown...n/photostream/\

It doesnt exist anymore cause I made it with hot glue, and the texas heat melted it in my garage
