Still here.

So much for keeping up with my journal :) Just too much going on I guess. At any rate, here's something just off the drawing board to keep this going. Done with Staedtler and Micron pens. Hopefully I'll have something relevant and interesting to say in the future.dragon

Another entry. So Soon even :)
I've been slogging away the past few weeks working on my self imposed, I guess resolution, if you will, to try and become a better painter. I've been mostly targetting my values and colours, attempting to make them more subtle with the aim of getting more depth and believability in my compositions.  I'll be attempting to work on more dynamic compositions next, and using photo reference. Should be fun :) 
In the mean time, here are some more endeavours in both colour and ink. Hope you all like.

'Conan the Barbarian'
This one was submitted and accepted into the Frazetta tribute show, for which I'm quite pleased.

'Can We Help?'
(You might recognise this one from below. I finally decided to finish it up in my self education campaign. This is pretty close to what I originally had in mind)

'The Warrior king'
(This is another one that started out as a speedie, which I liked, but sat for some time. )

'Gorilla Soldiers'
(Another quick speedie that sat for a long time. Finally finished. Well, I'm still not fully satisfied with this one. But for the most part, it's done.)

'The Red Dragon'
(Brand new piece)

And some new inks to start the year. The first one for Lamentations of the Flame Princess and the second one for 0One Games.

Thanks for looking!

Take care,

It's been too long since I've posted anything. That'll change starting now. I've been on a Lovecraft kick these days so with that in mind, here are some recent maniacal ramblings in colours out of space and in that bloodied vein. Geez, you'd think it  was Hallowe'en or something :)

Hope you enjoy!!

Quick update to keep the blog going. Nothing but inks, inks and more inks these days. It's a good thing I enjoy doing them :)

Thanks for looking!

Excuse me sir, I have a collect Call of Cthulhu for you.

I`m a huge fan of the writings of HP Lovecraft (as many of you are), so I've been on a Lovecraft audiobook kick as of late, listening through Youtube and got inspired. I`m still plucking away at it a bit more. Trying to represent a city constructed non-Euclidianly isn't as easy as I thought it would be :) Anyway, here's another ink for your enjoyment. 


Take care,

Some more inks. For Silver Gryphon Games this time. These are intended as chapter headers. There will be more of these but I thought I'd throw these up to keep the blog fresh. 

Thanks for looking and commenting, as always!

Eric Lofgren Inc....er...I mean Inks :)

Just trying to keep the ink skills up. I do enjoy doing them, but it's been a long time, what with mostly doing greyscale and colour works these days. It's interesting to note (or maybe not)  that I started freelance on the weight of my black and white work. 

And I did manage to finish up one of those pieces in my last post :)

Thanks for looking and commenting!

To be, or not to be (to be finished, that is).

Some stuff I've been working on for myself that past little while. Well, for quite a while now. What with work and all, it's not so easy to find the time to do these, never mind finish them to a level I'm happy with. Whatever the case, they are intended as submission pieces, but since there can be a long span between beginning them and ending them they may not actually end up being so. Since it's not uncommon to actually progress enough that by the time you get back to the unfinished ones, you no longer feel they properly represent your current ability. Still, it's always fun to have these incomplete ones kicking around to help pass the time every now and then :) 

As always, thanks for looking!

Some new work For Uhrwerk Verlag. I'm really enjoying working for these guys. I get to do stuff that I really enjoy :) 
Hopefully, another update coming sooner this time.

Comments always appreciated. Thanks for looking!

I'm trolling for some feedback on these. These are intended for submission purposes at WOTC, so whatever you have to offer would be very much appreciated. Jon Schindehette had a wonderfully insightful entry in his Art Order blog the other day regarding 'eye catching' submissions, along with info on what makes for great support material, in the way of web ports or blog entries. So that's what I'm going to be working on for the next little while. As always, thank you for looking (and commenting, as it were). Eric www.ericlofgren.net
