Chicago Skyline on Paint (Real Cool!!!)

This is the Chicago skyline from the west.
It is still unfishined so i will add more detail such as more buildings, trees and the sky.
My goal is to reach all the way to the north where the JHC is.


Sorry its a little big.

I always wanted to save diagrams from ssp's diagram site and photoshop them. Never had the time. Nice job.

Uh yeah it's not in there. The Palmolive building is just north of the Hancock.

Very nice! How long does this take to make? :-O

With all honesty, Usually if its just a simple building i will take me up to 5-10 minutes depending on how much detail i want in the building.
The colors i just get them from the original pictures of the buildings and just use the different colors of shades to similarize it to the original building. Its a hard task but i enjoy it.

Nope, I wish. In fact this is how the project came to me. The original idea of the project was to just copy and paste from the skyscraperpage diagrams but since that is protected, i wasnt able to do that but to actually draw them on my own, which put a hard challenge in front of me.
