A thing that always wonder me in Guangzhou (广州) are the number of road in the sky on most strests. The vehicles are of all kinds. bicycle, electric bicycle, tricycle with baggage placement, big blue trucks, small (European/Asian style) to big cars including SUV and berlins, the thousands of bus lines and pedestrians crossing streets anywhere.

About the colors, this is a mix between raw concrete of these sky roads and old buildings from 70’s or 80’s with lot of tropical plants, palm trees and other everywhere, even on the sky roads. The polluted atmosphere is really lowered by all this vegetation.

The following drawing is not finished and ugly this is a quick sketch made with Gimp using graphic tablet.

Here a video to better understand theses streets:

free and open source animation tools now works on Linux/Mac/Wine there is even an Ubuntu package on the Pencil site. I don’t understand everything (how to move object/camera/vector graphics ?), but it looks good and doesn’t crash ;). Graphic tablet pressure is well supported (even via X11 remote network display :) ).
