View Full Version : Bullsey's Sketchbook.
October 11th, 2008, 02:26 PM
So I've been on this forum for a while now, only posting sum crap trying to help others, but now I want to help myself. So I thought to myself: "what can I draw that I know I won't give up on?" And then I found the answer. Demons!
Or more uncommonly known as Darkpeeps. So I decided, one darkpeep a day(approx.) till I get good at it and then I will start adding more stuff! YAY!
So here is the first one
New Studies and MAWR! So go down and check it out!

Okay so I was playing with the opacity in PS and I developed this idea of a cliff waterfall thing with a kind of daring perspective :P
And so this WIP was created. No Darkpeep yet, will upload later today.
October 12th, 2008, 10:50 AM
omg it's still too large! how do I make'em smaller without compromising quality?
October 12th, 2008, 10:52 AM
Ah, keep it up, man, one picture every day is a big commitment.
Actually, I upload to photobucket first; you can resize it there if you need to.
October 12th, 2008, 10:55 AM
actually it's at least one darkpeep each day. I want to improve, goddamn it!
I use the attachment manager. oh well I suppose I could use photobucket
October 12th, 2008, 11:04 AM
I just save my work in jpeg 72 DPI, and width aprox 15 cm.
Gives a accepatble result and its not to big
October 12th, 2008, 11:07 AM
Use photobucket to scale down the image and then upload as an attachment URL.
October 12th, 2008, 11:24 AM
K, awesome gonna have some cake now and start on my darkpeep. WOOT!!
October 12th, 2008, 04:40 PM
OK so another darkpeep and updates on the enviro WIP
October 12th, 2008, 04:41 PM
The darkpeep is absolutely horrible, I hate it to the core, but I ran out of ideas and time :P
October 13th, 2008, 05:31 PM
Ok so here is today's post. No Enviro this time. This piece is actually something I had scribbled down earlier and I saw it in my sketchbook and thought that it would be fun to turn it into a digital piece. So here it is. Mind you it's not that good, had to put it together in the 60 minutes that I had for free time.
Feel free to comment.

I'm sorry but I won't upload a Darkpeep today but I will have one up tomorrow. Instead I will show you some stuff from my physical sketchbook. Oh well, look on the bright side. I went to 40 kilos to lift in upper body today, so that's a first for me. But without further ado here are the pics...enjoy if you can and of course, comments and crits would be helpful to extremities. Also contained is the original sketch of yesterday's Darkpeep. this is taking so long! I've been at it uploading and editing for about three hours now!!
October 14th, 2008, 06:24 PM
here is the sketch of yesterday's Darkpeep. Please ignor the upper left character, it was made and denied in about 30 seconds and the darkpeep sketch was the next stage.
October 15th, 2008, 04:55 PM
Hi you guys I can't believe it's already the 15. Only 7 days 4 hours 2 minutes and 10 seconds to Far Cry 2!!!
So anyway here is the darkpeep of the day and an update on the enviro. not a big one, but I'm not getting the texture of the rock face right, and I need some help. The darkpeep is mainly a face study and the hair is funky(literally!!).
October 16th, 2008, 05:34 PM
So, another day, another darkpeep. I know I have to be patient. Skills come over time. Unless you're born with them. Damn you Mentler, the incarnation of DaVinci! I tihnk this one hasw a pretty good composition and there are some anatomical issues
October 18th, 2008, 02:08 PM
Some rough enviros right now, darkpeep later. I also got a book on figure drawing and anatomy by John Raynes. YAY!
October 18th, 2008, 07:43 PM
Hey dude, its great to see you have enthusiasm, but if you wanna progress fast, its not about how much you drawm but more what you draw, and what you learn from it. Right now you wanna be doing as much life drawings as possible, on top of that you wanna do photostudies, master copies, anatomy and all that stuff. Keep it fresh and when you study, try to make sure it interests you, or you won't take anything in. Anyways keep it up.
Oh and Far Cry 2 is gonna kick some serious ass
October 19th, 2008, 05:52 PM
Yes, it is true although I do not upload everything I draw and I have been doing some life study and I'm getting pretty good at it and I can definitely see if something's wrong. I've kinda given up on the darkpeep thing and I wanna make it weekly, just focusing more on studies. Thanks for commenting, I really appreciate it. :) :yayca:

November 17th, 2008, 06:49 PM
OK so I posted these in the critques section and I will show the WIPs here.
December 26th, 2008, 05:10 PM
What have I got to lose, Internet?
Here are some quickies, I'm trying to catch the essence of the lines that I'm using. Feel free to comment and criticize me. Everyone except the top are less than 60 seconds
December 27th, 2008, 09:51 AM
Update on a Darkpeep, it has undergone some great changes. I am at loss for how and what to do with the "mountain"
so yay. Feel free to do what you do best.
December 28th, 2008, 09:52 AM
wow updates again. Well, this is something I have been doodling around with for quite some time now but never nailed down. It's a dreadnought/spaceship thing that I don't know much about. It isn't finished.
January 3rd, 2009, 07:12 AM
Hi, man! Thanks for the comment. I can't see that much of inspiration, pero if you do, then I'm with you ;)
The thing is I should work as hard as you, working more with environments and all that stuff, I'm too centered on characters.
Keep on it, mate!
January 17th, 2009, 09:25 PM
thanks for dropping by really appreciate it, and I#ve polished it as you wished ;)
though it's not done yet
Alright to your stuff....one thing...put the digital paintings aside for the moment...
what you need the most is to lern lern lern! sometimes it's realy hard to switch of your fantasy and thnk about the technical part of art but you have to get a good grasp of it... and if the people see that your really killing the paper with studies they'll gravitate to your SB and keep on encouraging you, i tell you
April 19th, 2009, 04:02 PM
What is this, an update?
Yes, I have an update.
My first skull study, from ref
Couple of hand studies, these are a bit old now.
A comic character, I like to call him Jim.
And a digital
See, Jim is the cutest alien in the world, and when he came to Earth he saw the Internet first and adapted to it. Thus, he only speaks Internet language.
April 21st, 2009, 09:22 AM
Hey man! Thanks for the comment... I wish i cannot forget traditional media :o
August 18th, 2009, 04:47 PM
A quick one I did for my desktop. It's lava, by the way.'
October 3rd, 2009, 05:01 PM
Here are some avatars that I made, they're really just opacity exercises. Painting nebulae and galaxies is fun, but time consuming. The green one is purely from imagination, I just liked the concept of space tornadoes.
October 3rd, 2009, 07:51 PM
Here's a mood study for the evening. Not very detailed, you could say it's a quickie.
