    Spartan Training Camp #1 - Gestures Week

    Hi everyone! We were discussing reviving the 100 gestures weekly TD, but decided it may be more useful to have a less competitive study group (Thanks john_o), where people can help each other with a weekly goal.



    This week, our aim is to produce 50 human gestures. The gestures must be full body poses. Medium and poses are up to you, feel free to use reference material if you want.

    Cut off date for this is Saturday the 30th of June 2007, whatever your local time zone may be. (since this isn't a td, it's not gonna be super strict, but remember we'll probably have moved onto the next topic after a while so don't be too late or no one will be checking the thread to help you.)

    Please refrain from piecemeal posting. Post your 50 pics all at once for the viewing convenience of others. Er just to clarify that, you can post pics as you complete them in the one post, just don't go making a *new* post for every page of gestures you do.

    Please register you interest below!

    lol, I hate you kvick.

    I've always overworked my gestures. Believe it or not these are looser than usual. Art constipation can be uncomfortable.

    Asoir - good to see the early start, hope you've got the rest done!

    Clocks - cool, good to see getting them done. Maybe a use a softer pencil or fiddle the contrast in PS? Hard to see.

    Duq - good job

    Buckweisel - good to see you getting them done.

    Hopefully this week's exercises made your muscles a wee bit stronger?

    If it didn't, you'd keep up the weight training, cos round 2 will be up very soon!!
