    Spartan Training Camp #5 - 50 Gestures Reloaded

    Hey everyone, I'll start with an apology, been caught up with work so I'm a bit late again with the Camp Posts.


    This week will be an easy restful week for those seasoned warriors of the last month or so...

    The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 29th of July.

    The gestures can be of anything, human, animal, fast moving protozoans playing baseball....and can be in any media, digi or traditional is fine.

    Come on soldiers! Flex those muscles!!

    I'm in.

    Here's my first round, all done watching folks at Barnes n' Noble and The Cheesecake Factory (though after a point the Chocolate Tuxedo Cream Cheesecake ala mode took all the attention, ha ha)

    These are all gestures after paintings by Tim Hildebrandt, in The Fantasy Art Techniques of Tim Hildebrandt.

    And lastly, the birds at the top are after Betsy Lewin, from her kids' book Booby Hatch, with many poses from posemaniac.

    Onir, I'm likin the action in your gestures. Lots of fun, did you have a reference for these poses?
    JoeSolo, your hands are so dynamic, and unfortunately I can't make out the rest of your gestures real well.
    I'd give some crits, but I honestly don't know how one critiques gesture drawings; to me the goal has always been to get more accurate at faster speed, simplify, simplify, and try to capture the essence of what's in front of you. It seems you've done that, I certainly felt the action in the drawings. Lookin forward to seeing everyone's work again next week.

    nice gestures everyone! not sure if we are supposed to crit, Anthis, but no reason not to I guess hehe

    tmyohlaing - very clean looking gestures and nice job showing volume in the limbs. I think some of your women have rather broad shoulders (a problem I have alot myself), so watch out for that a bit I'd say. good work all around though.

    blackrobin - good lord that's alot of hands lol; I like how you kept them varied too. all of them are really nice, though I must say the painted ones are my favorites (nice form and colors). nothing to crit really; nice work and kudos on going after hands hehe.

    Anthis - very nice gestures, lots of cool poses in there. I think your people get a bit elongated in the torso at times, but other than that they're great.

    edit: woops, didn't see Act.Appalled's gestures (sorry!)

    Act.Appalled - beautiful gestures, love the more traditional look to em, not to mention the variety in media it looks like. nothing to crit, great stuff.


    --

    here are my gestures; slowly did em over the week... had an epiphany of sorts at a point and things started flowing a bit better. these are a mixture of posemaniac.com figures, things I picked up watching tv, and a good amount of unreffed figures. there's around 60 total, so there should be at least 50 decent ones in there oh and I apologize for the car and other doodles, as well as the image size differences... was between my big and small sketchbook.
