Are you aspiring to be a designer, a programmer or an artist? It's usually best to specialise in one field and focus on that. Being a jack-of-all trades will work against you when looking for a job. You need to be able to take at least one element of games development to a professional level.

If art isn't your strong suit, I would suggest heading over to the Collaborate forum and asking for help from an artist. Alternatively you could just search the web for interesting sprite kits or images that you could use in your game.

I can understand what you are saying although the grammar is quite poor. There are uneccessary spaces and your use of paragraphs is bad. If you are hoping to work in an English-speaking environment, you will need to improve your written communication skills.

Thanks for this quick answer!
I want to be a programmer. And yes, I am totally agree with you about jack-of-all trades if I want to get a job , but with this game I want to push my limits for fun . I try to increase eng skills every day.
When I will finish the game I will post it here.

You want your art to be like "real photos?" You could always grab a camera and start taking pictures of buildings and skyscrapers to use as actual backdrop in your game. That could solve some of your art asset problems.

How much do you have planned out? Start nailing down specifics for the game and what platform you want to develop on. My personal recommendation would be Flash.
