    Draw/Paint from Google Street View

    Post your work, any medium, sketches, finals, interpretations, or inspirations, anything goes. Bonus points if you find the location in street view yourself.

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Here are a couple quick ones I did. I can't remember where the places are. I think I found the policemen in Paris.

    That's italian police Bryan! Not the police actually, it's another military force, called Carabinieri.

    I did tiny paintings as per James Gurney's suggestion in his blog, references from MapCrunch, media: watersolouble pencils & watercolors.

    I've got loads in my SB as I'm in the middle of doing an animation about London. These are all vector so people can walk around the corners.

    I think you'll be able to guess where this one is.
