My attempt to draw a skyline is at a standstill. I spliced together 10 pictures that I took while standing on the shoulder of Dakota Drive, just south of 19th avenue north.
After a minute of tracing the outline of the buildings in Illustrator I realized I wasn’t going to get much of a skyline.
I stopped “illustrating” when I had a more colorful take on the Stop and Go apartments, the Technology Incubator, and Candlewood Suites.
From where I stood, The Radisson, the FargoDome, steeples, watertowers, and high-rise housing rose above the fray, but besides NDSU’s smoke stack, there weren’t many other structures of unusual size.
Below is a compilation of the ten pictures after applying the “live-trace” function in Illustrator. So it’s basically a computer-generated version of what I was shooting for. It’ll have to do for now.
