Andy's Sketchbook, Never Gonna Give You Up.
Hi everyone, thanks for checking out my sketchbook first of all, I'm hoping to keep this updated regularly but to start off here are some studies/imaginative work I've done in the past I hope you enjoy, any feedback is great and much appreciated.

Spent a few hours on this, didn't even attempt rendering the feet/hands, definitely need to do more anatomy studies.

Just wow! Some of the studies look completely like photos, you sure have patience. But I also love your more loose strokes, when your "lines" are visible. It all feels very good, and varied to me, so keep it up!

Thanks ynne! Patience and a lot of spare time!
Here's today's stuff, not much drawing, done some anatomy reading/videos and currently having driving lessons
and a lame doodle, lots more anatomy studies tomorrow!

More studies today, some figures from imagination and a portrait sketch from imagination.

Well, you're pretty much set on your way! You could additionally focus on attributes, your pieces don't always have a mood going on due to a seclusive feeling. Keep it up

Ah my bad should have caught that it was a study xD Well I'd say keep working on the anatomy and figure drawing! I feel like your work really needs it more than anything else. Do some bodies from imagination too! It helps your imagination stuff out a lot

Yeah I don't think I'll ever stop studying anatomy, it's all interesting stuff!
Here's a piece i've been working on pretty much all day, always loved the idea of angels and demons, this is supposed to be the gatekeeper of heaven, she'll have some keys in her other hand eventually, hoping to finish this weekend, then maybe a hell version would be super cool

Mhmm, you're on a great track.
Looking at the gatekeeper, I can imagine the pose would be somehow uncomfortable/painful even? I recommend trying the pose yourself, at least upper part of body (considering she's flying). I think the hand with keys should be more loose and the hand with sword more firm (in firm grip) because the sword is heavy and it takes more strenght to hold it. It would slip if she held it this way for longer time. I also think it's weird we don't see any of that hand.
I love the armour, although I can't imagine how the things on her legs hold onto her, I think it should be connected under her knees somehow?
Try to think of the practical side next time, to make it work, not just look pretty (it looks lovely indeed).
One last thing would be her wings, I know people tend to stylize them, but the simple anatomy of them is a matter of 3 minutes looking at real wings, and adding the bend would make it look twice more real even if you didn't add more details.
I like how you painted skin, although I'm unsure where all the lightsources are, I know nothing about light, but it may be simplier to have 1 main lightsource at first.
I tried to help as much as possible, but you know I'm a newbie myself, so it's mostly my humble opinion only.
Keep it up!
