Maybe two hours for the the Galaga & Pac-Man because of the full background. About an hour for Frogger and Mario because he's smaller.

If you are doing classic/retro video game pictures you need to do Centipede

Absolute class DBP, so good in fact (I saw pics in your previous posts), that I make a point of not robbing you out of respect for your work.

Mine (sadly now replaced with Casinos)...

Love the use of the trees for hair - might have to pilfer that idea if I ever do a person! Expanding my hood as we speak to allow for more artwork! Of course I will share with my favorite forum (and Funzio too!)

How many art installations do you keep at once?

Hi ITeachEm ~ I just recently expanded my hood to allow for more artwork. Currently I have three full size long acreage plots with the U.S. Flag, Pacman Ghosts & Halloween installations. I also have the smaller plot with Mario & two empty small plots for now (you can see them all in this thread). I overwrote the Galaga, Frogger & Space Invader installations - I get bored with them after time & try to keep it fresh.

I know it seems like I am using space better suited for buildings, but I have always taken the approach to use upper level 12, 24 & 48 hour buildings and just upgrade the hell out of them - At this stage, I wouldn't build any more buildings, even though I have the space. After the upgrades become cost prohibitive, I might rethink this approach. They're all in the periphery & include a Casino, Office Building, Upscale Club, Hotel, Loft, Movie Theater, Internet Building, Condos, Beachside Inn, Dominican Restaurant, Brownstone, House & Gun Shop. I also have level 10 Surveillance Center, Security Center, Neighborhood Watch, Machine Gun Turret & Missile Turret. I don't have two of anything other than trees!

Just having fun with the game!
