Chrome Itch - Cover by Lizkay Chrome Itch - Cover by Lizkay
Well what ta say...
Didn't want to submit this really, as the title says it's supposed to be the cover of my upcoming 2007er Sketchbook which's theme and name is "Truly Yours" And I normally keep my sketchbook covers secret until I print them out (and I don't think it's that nice overall...), anyways, painted this in the last 4 hours, roughly can be less or more since I did quite a lot besides. The book will be puplished in let's say October or later, since I am still collecting sketches and it supposed to show the full 2007 range and we have "only" August now. (since some asked a little preview of the cover on a template: [link] ) also can't tell how many pages it will have, but it won't be A4, it will be much smaller something around 12-15 cm hight, standard booklet size.

So back to the pic, the initial thought behind comes from really close friends, and one of the most beloved objects I ever owned XD (guess what) As for the Transformers Theme, I am not into this stuff lately and never really was (I just like the thought of cars with personality... LOTS), except sketches this will be one of the last pieces of that type, (why telling that? Because people tend to ask me if I am going to be a official geek now and will only be drawing this theme from now one... and that really annoys me, why can't artists just draw what they are up to in the moment??? .. People call me a Freak anyways XD)

Well so this is Chrome (the metallic gryphon spirit which is actuallly on the vinyl decal as well as you can recognise on his tail) and SilverSide, and because people were asking as well, shots of my "real" car with the "real" vinyl! : [link]
also the only reference I had...
and those who are interested in painting techniques, I made a flash of the painting steps, which can be viewed here: [link]

well, all in all based on a very rough sketch and completed in Photoshop... well was fun XD and a very good training... :love:

EDIT: forgot to enable one layer.. oops :blush:
