Drawing S&B-buildings

Hello! I've been drawing buildings on the SSP-diagram for some months, and I have seen that quite many buildings in the S&B-region haven't got drawings, and many buildings are missing too as you can see here, especially in Finland. So now, I will start drawing S&B-buildings that haven't got any drawings yet, or maybe if the drawing has got the wrong height. I've already made some Swedish buildings, but many in the region are still missing. My goal is to draw all buildings that are +50 m. Let's see if I'll make it! My first one is the Academy of Science in Riga:


Remember, I'm not a professinoal drawer, but I'll do my best!

If you want, I can try to find you good reference photos of Finnish high-rises.
Also, many of the currently existing drawings of Finnish high-rises at skyscraperpage.com are outdated, for example:

http://www.skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?b2679

Shoud look like

http://www.yit.fi/binary.asp?guid=52...41&field=image

And it's correct height would be closer to 90-100 meters. Tower's new, official name is also "Cirrus".



http://www.skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?b2640

These are supposed to depict Itämerentori (it's not spelled Itämerentorni)? Gimme a break!


The real thing: http://www.vtt.fi/virtual/try/Terak/tr4-2000k3.jpg

And from the other direction:

http://img41.photobucket.com/albums/...uoholahti2.jpg


Jonas' SysOpen Tower on the other hand looks very close to the real thing.



So, if you need any reference photos, just tell me and I'll try to help any way I can! Good luck to you and your effort!


IMPORTANT TIP REGARDING HELSINKI HIGH-RISES:
Also search for buildings in Espoo - that's where many of Helsinki's high-rises are located, for example buidlings like Fortum, Kone Building, Meritorni, etc.

Wow, Atlantica! That's great!

A most meritorious undertaking, there are so many fine buildings in our region that should be known much better! I applaud you and wish you well in this endeavor.

In the diagrams why aren't there any buildings from other cities in Finland? .. It should be updated somehow (I have no idea how )

Yup, Paint is the only program I use for drawing, but I save the buildings as .gif in IrfanView

Is it small? It's 108 pixels tall, and the scale in the diagrams is 1 pixel = 1 m. So don't expect any very big buildings!

Next building to get a drawing: Domus Vista, Copenhagen

Thanks DenverDane! Domus Vista was quite easy to draw, took me less than an hour.

Next building: Radisson SAS Royal Hotel, Copenhagen

i've been watching your ''career'' since your first drawing at SSP ....and i must admit - you've done a hella good improvement! keep up the nice work and soon you're as talented as the master-illustrators (Cliff, SPE etc.)

good luck with your plan! (:
