Doodles at lunch! Young Conan, elf shield maid! nuff said.

Often, here at Ehrhart Energy, I doodle on my lunch hour.  With an idea that at least they can go into LPJ Design’s Portfolio clip art collections that I contribute to.  Here are a couple.  Now, I have to do the color work at the home studio, but it is really nice to get a little bit of artwork in during my work week.

While I don’t always have an idea of just where I’m going as I doodle, I was wanting something with a bit of action.  The sword and dagger guy really struck me as a young Conan, during his thief days.  It doesn’t have to be a young Conan… it was just want my brain was saying internally as I sketched away and later painted.

In the color, still playing around with working with grounds.  Doing a bit more with Overlay, both as a brush selection or a layer of such.  I finally cottoned onto working with locked empty pixels.  I don’t know why it took me ten years  of photoshop and similar programs to figure that one out.  But you don’t know what you don’t know.
