    Spartan Camp #50 - 50 gestures + Optional Study of "Mouth: laughing"

    The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 13th of July.

    The gestures can be of anything, human, animal, cavorting capybaras....and can be in any media, digital or traditional is fine.

    In addition to this, participants can choose to do a Optional Study of "Mouth: laughing", 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!

    this is spartaaaaaa!(i havent seen 300 yet)

    because i'm not going to be able to get online the next days,
    here they are 50 gestures(plus a few shitty half-assed ones), it's very messy, and i don't have a scanner anymore so they are photo's.
    all 1 min with posemaniacs.

    the mouths will be up tomorrow.

    i already here you coming"it's easy to get 50 if you do them like that!"
    and you are right.

    blue fruitbowl;, they look great, i esp like the red ones.
    the inked skell feet are pretty cool.

    a la bapsi nice and loose, i like the details that help create the volume and direction you made by using your pencil on the flat side.

    Very nice works you guys, and fast too!!
    advice for both: try to keep things as simple as possible, try to keep your lines to a minimum so constrain yourselves, this will improve your skills quicker. watch the proportions. other than that bravo dudes!!! nice work. i don't know if i'll make it this week but i'll try. Ohhh and do some mouth studies

    Nice to see so many people joining in! Very suitable, as the 50th round should be a special one. Onwards to the 100!
    Got everything done this week, tomorrow I'll add some crits and comments.

    Here's some thoughts and crits, hope its of any use -

    0shade0; Nice to have you back! Long since I've seen some good old posemaniac in here too. Nice job on the 1min timer. Perhaps you should start out with big shapes for the body parts first. Start out light, then finish it off with bolder lines once you've got the right shape. It seems you're drawing from scratch right? At least, I can't see any perspective lines or helper lines or anything. See you next week! Didn't get the optional done?
    bluefruitbowl; Welcome! Some of those are a little messy, but most seem very fluent and dynamic, even without helper lines. Think the mirror is one of the best ref there is. See you next week! good stuff.
    ibbo; No worries, just join up next week! good luck.
    a la bapsi's; Hey there. Spartan camp is great for practicing, nice to have you around. 10sec is real short though, think the quality is pretty good for 10secs. Make sure that when you're drawing, you keep looking at the figure as a whole. That way you won't have any body parts accidentally getting too big or small. Think you did a nice job, hoping to see you around next week.

    Draw and have fun and cu all next week!
