Sketchbook Tuesday - Canson Paper Sketches


Artwork © 2010 Gene Gonzales

More sketching of some familiar looking guys. The sketches above were done on a sheet of Canson paper using Col-Erase pencils and white acrylic. Some of the color was done in Photoshop. I am trying different approaches for how I draw. I really would like to work on my own projects but I am not very interested in inking everything. There are several european comics that I follow that seem to print straight from pencils. Tight pencils that have been colored in a neutral shade. There are no stark black lines on anything and it looks really nice. I like the roughness and energy of pencils. Ah well, until I have time to actually devote to my own stuff, I will continue to play.

I have picked up another big project from a terrific client that will be a bit of a rush. I am working on one project for the same client and this one will tie into it a bit. I will be flying to Arkansas the first week of December and possibly late January as part of all this work. Needless to say, I will be pretty slammed through the first week of January.

My commission list is closed until February. I have taken on five Canson pieces and that fills my list. Whew! But these are going to be really, really fun!
