Most people think those massive high rise buildings you see in China are dull and ugly but for some reason I think they have a lot of character actually. Especially the filthy ones.
This piece was made to convey that feeling, hopefully some can relate.
I used a lot of photos I took in Hong Kong, Chongqing and Shanghai for this one. Hope you like it, I'm quite happy with it :giggle:

If they were dull they wouldn't be so hard to draw...

This has a modern feel, compact and suffocating, especially with the dark glow of the sunset. But it definitely has character and a sort of "ugly charm" to it, you're right. There's a story to tell here and I love it. +fav

This reminds me of my city... so nostalgia. I guessed Shanghai and Hong Kong the moment I saw this. So amazing. I'm from Shanghai.

I've always liked the style of these buildings and think the clutter actually does give it a lot of character. The toxic haze, not so much I'm afraid. But thats just me!

I like this! These last months I have also started to see the charm of my filthy little town, with lots of ugly, run-down buildings. It's these small moments, the nooks and crannies. The contrast between the new, moderns building and the one right next to it, growing a beard of plants. That one cat that sits across the streets, observing you almost curiously, but of course, never really interested. And the ravine created by buildings, on the left hotels and on the right business facilities, banks and stores. A ravine in which you feel like you have entered another world. This little town of mine, ugly but beautiful.

I thought I was the only one that thought that!! Now I don't feel so alone >< The same goes for unfinished buildings. I'd put a plant and a matress and live there :P Thpugh you've certainly given this concept a new sense of beauty

perspective issues on the left of centre building? the apartments on top seem to go to a different vanishing point the the lower part... Excellent as usual though.

I had the same thing when I was in China. Everyone would say how horrible those buildings were, but I said they were beautiful and unique. I always got weird looks for my admiration of them. I also how about a hundred or so photos of those buildings just because I liked them so much
