For years I worked for a law firm in the middle of this (one of the black glass bldgs. between the ball tower and the triangular building, and every day I was in awe at how the architects and engineers had the forethought to design the buildings where the golden glass faced the southwest and the black glass faced the dark and artificially lit sides of the city... the light play at different times of day is amazing. I always thought this would be a great subject for art, but all of the straight lines prevented me from doing it on canvas - a pain in the you know what. The wonderful tools in the applet make it possible to try something I'd otherwise never have done.

This is just awsome DBA...You are so diverse in your talents...a true artist...When I enter 2Draw each day, I always start by looking at your submissions for the day. There are other artists, who's work I also thoroughly enjoy...but I guess you won my heart by doing such a beautiful job and my grandson's pic. Btw...Kev's pic is also just great...:D! luv'em both..

Wow this is amazing to me! You have so much more patience than I. I love all the small details, and it really feels like I'm looking out a window at the landscape. Great drawing. ^_^
Supergurl103 (May 16, 2004)
wow, nice final touch, dba ;) love to visit there someday
dixielandcutie (May 17, 2004)
oh thats gorgeous! i love the sky too...subtle, but colorful :)

I would think it would be difficult to keep myself from staring out the window and dreaming all day. It really must be something at night.You did a beautiful job making the viewers feel they are right across the street admiring all the architect.

Incredible detail. No idea how you managed to get the highway signs to look so real. I especially like the one lonely little star in the sky. Nice touch for your LoneStar state.

Wow, very cool. For a moment there, I thought it was my town from a miniature size. lol Anywayz good job. I'd like to take a tour around that tower, if I have the time.
JackSprat (Jul 14, 2004)
This is too cool! Something I'd expect to see on a magazine column, or an event poster....very nicely done!
Ty854 (Jul 16, 2004)

Little late for a comment but...
Awesome drawing! I remember this place as Beautiful and unusual when passing by it to get to Six Flaggs Amusement Park. Oh I loved Six Flaggs.. Good times. Hate the traffic in Dallas though.
