WHAT ARE BIG CITY SKYLINES?
Big City Skylines are precisely drawn to the specific details of each building in terms of height and number of floors above ground. A computer program (CAD) is used to create the drawings, one line at a time. Each drawing consists of thousands of strategically placed lines that make up the buildings in each skyline.
Accurate Detailed Drawings
These drawings are so accurate and detailed that they are commonly mistaken for black and white photographs. Although photographs are used to look off of for reference to create these drawings, photographs are never a part of them. These drawings are believed by many to be the most accurately drawn city skylines found anywhere and are occasionally ranked among actual photographs.
