Great drawings everyone :P I liked to draw cities in my math book, with a main road going all the way through all pages When my teacher found out, she wasn't very pleased.

Me and my brothers also used to play "amish" sim city when we were like 7-10ish don't remember exacty. Had taxes going and stuff depending on houses, and then we could afford to build more roads and expand it

Makes me want to draw again!

I thought I was the only crazy person drawing imaginary cities!

I've drawń some interchanges and stuff, but some of yours are awesome.

This one was a bit light, so i had to overdo it in Photoshop.


One big-ass intersection.


Tallinn bypass' and Viljandi mnt's interchange in 30 yrs


Comments&Critics, tho I am still a newbie at drawing that kind of stuff

I have some drawings to show myself. I don't only draw roads from a "google maps" point of view. I also like going 3D.



Here's one I haven't finished yet. These things take for ever to draw becuase of all the small details.



Hopefully the links work becuase i've never used imageshack before.

Let me know what you think

The lines in these pictures are very clean. I like the fine detail. Here is one I drew about 3 years ago in pencil. :

North Interstate 31 and U.S. 41 near U.S. 438 and State Highway 24:

Here's another one I did when I was bored around that time. I didn't put as much effort into this one though.

East Interstate 52 near U.S. 437, SH 23 and BCR(Back Country Road) 3461:
[IMG]http://i43.************/2uffs5j.jpg[/IMG]

After leaving the freeway at Exit 979 on a two way frontage road:

These are obviously imaginary Interstate highways in a a very big imaginary state. I even made up a state highway system long ago just so I could use them in my drawings, call me crazy.

I'm glad you like them. I really suck at drawing cars but everything else seems to come out OK. Here are two more I had sitting on my hard drive that were scanned a while ago:

The east bound lands of Interstate 50 and US 70 going through a dense forest of monster sized trees near exit 1491:
[IMG]http://i41.************/2n9kfpi.jpg[/IMG]

Heading into the island of my imaginary city Trang(pop. 37 million). A densely populated island with a total population of about 60 million people with the tallest skyscrapers topping out at around 4000 feet and some 2000 foot tall "mountains" dotting the center of the island.

South Interstate 11E and U.S. 55 at Exit 48, Link Highway 442, East Dock Rd. :

I loved drawing these but I feel like such a nerd posting these.....haha.

I notice a lot of European style highways drawn in this thread. I'm so used to the wide medians we generally have here in the United States.

Here is the last one I've finished! It was requested by a friend of mine and she asked me to drawn her an "island city". So, an island it is!

PS: Maybe you'll say: "Come on! He always draws the same bridge!" But that's just a coincidence....
