    Spartan Camp #57 - 50 gestures + Optional Study of "Fish"

    The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 7th of September.

    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 "Fish", 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!

    forgot...? you must have a busy life... for me, this activity was the only reason I made some studies in the last few hot, lazy and tiresome weeks of mine... I missed it (and drew gestures as I used to )! I'm in, it's obvious. these gesture studies are even more useful than I thought, I tried to draw figures by myself again and they're much better than a few hundred gestures ago sweet!

    don't worry dudes. I'm not planning on stopping this activity. seeing people do this and improve is very nice and inspirational. and yes this does work. it helped me a lot and I'm still planning to join you guys now and again but I'm really very busy lately and am having a hard time drawing in general. so please if you don't see a new spartan every week by Tuesday, don't hesitate and PM me about it.

    Works for me anyways and I can relate with being busy... haven't been on the internet for a week with moving into college / orientation / whatnot.

    These challenges are awesome. I'll definitely try to draw for this every time.

    my optional study

    now that all of us love this activity, celebrate this warm feeling with a few fish!
    oh how tired I am, I'm longing for a holiday, without computers (it won't be too long, I won't skip a Spartan Camp )

    I don't like fish very much and wished for something unique, but searching on the Net is so tiresome and steals my precious time I need pictures, but sometimes it doesn't work at all... I need to learn drawing, I tend to have too high expectations

    a few not too boring, but common fish. no digital this time, but my hatching babysteps I hope I'll figure out how this method works...

    my gesture studies aren't nice enough and I still need a few more, they come later!

    sorry for the too much blurb, I'm far too tired to be short... and I'm not that type to begin with.

    gestures more than 50, but there are weak drawings and duplicated poses too. I hope the quality will be better next time! and I should make some more detailed ones too... and real life drawings...

    Those are beautiful Man Made God. How long time did it take for each? please say atleast a minute hehe.

    shiNIN good stuff aswell!

    50 pieces of 45 seconds. Havn't been doing these daily for a while so it's a bit hard coming into it again. I really should focus more on drawing some lines as a base..

    and... Oooh fishy eooh.. I wundar were da fiz did goe?! ooooe fishy fishy fish.. what a loveley little fish.. and it went whereever I did goooe... Monty Python anyone? something about 30-40 minutes I think.. first life study digitaly made! reference from here --> http://www.wallpaperbase.com/wallpap...ish/fish_4.jpg

    Been meaning to have a go at these. I made the mistake of trying to do them all at once though, talk about a workout! First four pages from posemaniacs, the last is just from my head.

    Damn nice round everyone.
    Mike; No worries, good luck with school/work.

    Keeping it short as I should be sleeping.
    shiNIN; Good thing you went for it even though you don't like fish. Fish are smooth, rounded, 3 dimentional, picture them as 3d creatures when you draw them. Try to avoid drawing just 'what you see'. Good variation in your poses, keep trying stuff. Nice to see you back, and see you next week!
    Man Made God ; Nice job man. Love the smoothness of those. Clean, and accurate too. No real crits I'm afraid, except the 10th one seems out of proportion. And welcome to conceptart/spartan camp
    DefiledVisions ; 45 secs is pretty fast, nice. Think you can handle yourself pretty ok without the construction lines, but yea they are useful. Nice job on the fish, I'd advice toning the bg a little because the white can be overwhelming.
    bleupencil; Yea.. all at once can be a pain. Try to establish some construction lines or fine lineart first, before really drawing the whole pose. Seems you have a lot of lines 'next to each other', as if you're constantly correcting. Great effort on finishing the whole 50. I think those fish really stand out too, I like them a lot. What media did you use?
    Adi.; Hey adi again, of course we're still here Strong stuff. Make sure you don't 'avoid' drawing the feet.

    Thanks for the advice about the background Anthis. Will think of it for next week's study.

    Nice and solid sketches you've got there. I should try some longer one's for next time.. great fish aswell, and different ones!

    Adi nice solid lines. They seem very confident.

    Bluepencil sweet poses here too.. but they're outshined by your fish. Loveley piece, great inkwash. tops.

    nice fish studies, everyone!

    Anthis: it's not the only reason, but I take my first steps with hatching, before the fish pic I did only a few strokes in this style. and I mostly use only lines and even those aren't good... but you're completely right. *sigh*

    Anthis: cheers. They're all one minute poses, I didn't really give myself the time to go over them again, but I'll try and keep that in mind. As DefiledVisions mentioned, the fish are done with ink. Lovely work with yours!

    DefiledVisions: Thanks man.
