Spartan Training Camp #9 - 50 gestures and Optional Still Life Exercise
The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 26th of August.
The gestures can be of anything, human, animal, zombies, goldfish in drag....and can be in any media, digi or traditional is fine.
In addition to this, participants can choose to do a still life study in any media. Black and White or Colour is fine.
Come on soldiers! Flex those muscles!!
PS...critting each other is highly encouraged!! Let's help each other get better!
Hall of Fame Spartan Camp #8
Those with a star next to their name have also completed the optional exercise!

Metal-Mike; Thanks for the gradient explanation, will check out the tool.
Thanks all for the crits last week.
Will crit when the other soldiers report in.
Adding stillife later on, getting bit late here...
First 2 scans are poses from head, the small ones.
Last 3 scans are done with posemaniac ref.

It appears some scans 'violated photobucket policy' and are not displayed. Not sure what this is about, but I'll host them somewhere else for the time being. Anyone had anything like this before?
Also added the stillife.

have you checked the size of the scans, i know that if your scans are above 200k, photobucket wont recognise them

Only one person submitted this time???
I'm gonna on to mine now... Gotta stop doing these last minute entries... *sigh*
EDIT: Only got half way through before I become somewhat frustrated this time... Nothing from me this time 'round. Damn... pld:

Anthis: Nice gestures. Those you did from Posemaniac are better than the above of that. I think your still life needs a little contrast. Also think that if you can shape background, the objects would appear better.
50 gestures from Posemaniac.
And a still life.

phew!! just made it in time(at least I hope so)
here's it's 23:33 atm
50 gestures scanned poorly cause I ran out of time
no still life. but it's a new personal record for me 50 gestures in one day.
see you next week ^^ all

tmyohlaing; Thanks, I noticed posemaniacs are better aswell, but I'm not quite confident on how to use reference. It still feels like I'm just reproducing stuff. But I guess it's the right thing for learning? The stillife definitely could use some contrast, perhaps I used a wrong pencil though, because actually remember having to press pretty hard in some of the shadows.
Your poses seem to be getting smoother at some points. A few exceptions seem off (i.e. walking person in middle of last scan), but most pretty much capture the pose. I'm just wondering, how are you using the blue pencils? I've noticed more people use blue pencils, never really got why. Got a sketchbook btw?
0shade0; I salute you for joining on the last day . Some poses seem to lack a little balance, as if they're forced. Versatile sketches, as poses themselves, and the viewpoints. I love the text and pictures btw.
My little photobucket problem has miraculously solved itself, see you next week

Anthis: I think that it’s part of a learning to draw from the reference. Well, the reason why I am using blue pencil is that I just wanna see the draft lines which are underneath of the contours. Some artists from animation field use blue and red pencils for different purposes. One time, I met a man when I went for the Toronto Subway Sketching Group, he told me in order to get my lines cleaner, I should use a blue pencil as first draft then go over with black pencil. Then I started using it. I haven’t started a sketchbook here yet.
