Ever since the first time I saw this building, all I can think of is "Las Vegas themed hotel". It just looks really tacky to me. The size and mass of the project are absolutely incredible though.

lthe programs that use in my drawings are paint and photopaint. something that is very important is the degree of practices and technique, at least in the personnel the quality degree optuve throughout 4 years more or less.
I want to be in years to be one of the best illustrators of the world

I even need much to learn now I am working much with the effect of the shades in the personnel, the shades and perspectivaes what a good work does of a drawing

I just realised it has been some time since the last update. Anyone out there travelling to or currently in Mecca? Would love to see some pictures showing further construction of the main tower

Not as big as your avatar!

@ Domenico:
As far as I know, construction on the main tower hasn't started yet. I haven't been keeping track of this thread, though, so I don't need a barrage of replies telling me off if I'm mistaken.

what's the matter with the clock? is there any symbolism behind it or does it just exist for its practical use?

The clock is significant for keeping track of prayer time, as it stands next to probably the most important mosque in all of Islam.
