Sketchbook Friday


Artwork © 2011 Gene Gonzales

I did this piece in my sketchbook and added all the tones in Photoshop CS5. The vehicle behind her is inspired by an electric vehicle I saw in the Consumer Electronics Expo coverage. I follow quite a few tech podcasts and that two wheeled/two person vehicle really stood out. I believe GM made it as a concept vehicle using the same type of gyroscope/balancing as the single rider Segway. If you are interested in seeing it in action I'm sure you can find footage on the web.

Today I made all the final changes to the art that is included in the Canson sketchbook. I'm considering calling the book "Canson Cuties and Heroes. But that is just a working title right now. I only have to create the title page and the cover now. If I have time over the weekend, I will create a new image for the cover. If I don't have time, the cover will be a collage much like the one on my at www.gonzoartstudio.com. After the weekend I will begin sorting images for the other sketchbook.

Have a good weekend everyone!
