Less polarising but still modern (for the 80s, though).  ;D

Thank you, gauthier.  :)

Well, you'll see while trying the next version of pak96.comic. Don't know when it's coming but i will come soon, hehe.

I have a new city building. There are still no special colors und no winter version; i will include it after work. But you can get an insight, though.  :D

Yes, and your account number and PIN is? ;)

If I may ask, how exactly do you do the dots around solid lines? I mean, how do you decide where should they go? For the "straight" lines it's of course easy, but eg. the small houses have enhanced the woodem beams the same way...

Also - did you sample colours for windows on the left high-rise from real photos? Otr how do you come up with colors in general?

Well... It's simple to decide where to do the dots around solid lines. I avoid "lonely dots" of lines. That means i round hard lines. You can call it antialaiasing, hehe. With this procedure you can draw between (!) the dots. ...I hope, my answer is the answer you want wo read. :/
The colors: The most colors are from existing graphics i've made in the last time for pak96.comic. It's much easier than picking new colors from photos or something like that.
But i study real buildings (the left highrise doesn't exist in real life), though. In the reality there are less colors in the skylines. For games like ST you need much more of them.

Bravo! Bravo! I love your graphics. It's so eye-popping! :o

Like your work, man. 8)

I almost forgot. Do you paint industries, like power plant? If you not, I can take the job. ;D

I think currently there are enough high buildings in pak96.comic.
At the moment i'm working on new station modules, tram tracks, overhead lines and some other stuff. But new skyscrapers and residential highrises will come, be sure.  :D

Nice, hehe.
You know what you have to do, right? Please draw them again - for 96c!  ;D

Once in school i only drawed cars. Cars, cars and cars. And only self-designed.  :D
The following old drawing from me was printed in a car magazine in germany. But no car manufacturer contacted me.  :-\ ;D


My last drawing i've done is from januar 2007 and was made by using adobe fireworks.

Wow man! You beat me at drawing ;D. I don't draw cars often because I tend to make cars like 80s, which for me is easier to draw because it's blocky, unlike newer cars.

Update!

I've to define Front- & BackImage currently. The winter version is in progress, too. I'll paint the bridge in another color soon.
Any ideas or questions?  :)
