Tony Bui Golf Explorations

Here are some of my newest ideations involvoing New York.

So far, this is my newest favorite idea...playing on rooftops but with that forced perspective I talked about in class:
Some more explorations of street golf using sky scrapers and Broadway as themes:I just wanted to draw a creature (King Kong) because I was inspired by JP's drawings:

More explorations...
Hey Dela, which idea do you think I should explore from these. It is a toss up between the rooftop idea and the street idea (the original idea I pitched in class). I like the rooftop idea because it is visually interesting. However, the street idea comes of being really "romanitic" to me which is why I persued it in the first place. Any advice would be great.

Also, I can not make it to class on Saturday because I need to attend my monthly Army Reservist training. Will you kick me out of the class if I miss it? I will post all my work on the site before Saturday. If there is a problem with this, please advise.

Tony,these are working better, I even like the King Kong direction you are starting to explore. I still feel these can really be pushed.
For your roof top one you need to take advantage of that location, and if that is New York, how do I feel that through just seeing the roof tops. You started to with the water tower. Here a few thing you might want to include in your piece. Pigeon coops, sky lights, ac units, building signage, tv antennas, clothes lines, cables, fire escape going down the sides of the biuldings. I also want you to include obstacles on your path and see if you can come up with something more than a straight path. When you do have a path that breaks away from being straight I want to see you take advantage of that space not leave it empty.
On the New York city ones I still think those can be pushed. Really take advantage of the location.
