    Spartan Camp #58 - 50 gestures + Optional Study of "Flower"

    The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 14th 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 "Flower", 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!

    ^ Nice! Did they always have the 10 sec option on the timer?

    Anyway, here's my 50:

    What are the stars for? If they're for optionals, then I shouldn't have one.

    Man Made God: sooo clean lines!
    a la bapsi: not the all is so readable, but many of them has a nice flow, I like them much

    my week was a bit hectic, tiresome, then lazy, but I did my gestures. I produced almost nothing beyond this it's not very unusual, though, I draw little

    not much variety, sorry. mostly sexy women
    I think I became better my figures are nicer and I don't mess up the half of them as before
    there are some Bridgman too (my attitude wasn't good there, I did mindless copywork, I fear, unlike usual. except that my last woman isn't so angular ).
    I neglected animals, only one Bilby. greater bilby is an endangered specie of Australia (the smaller ones died out ), I found Bilby pictures when I searched for seahorse photos for the fish optional

    I included the sketch for my gothic girl DSG entry. it was my first character that has not an extremely simple standing pose and still I was pleased with it not a difficult pose and I see this already, but now I drew it by myself and still it's okay, it's a big step for me

    I wished to write my experiences and thoughts about gesture studies in general, but my post is too long already

    oh the optional will come later, my first try became horrible, I suddenly felt I know absolutely nothing about digital painting and brushes... (flowers means colors for me, so it will be digital. an artist is able to make a nice pencilwork about flowers, but I'm not that confident. and I have no other options now)

    EDIT: I added the optional. I chose another pic. it's a quick pasque flower drawing, I'm not very pleased with it, looking at the beautiful original photo, but it'll do, I'm not into textures yet...

    here are mine: 50 posemaniacs and a couple of flowers, the pencil ones from life and the digi after a photo ref. my first flowers ever - complicated beasts!

    a la babsi those look really fast! great job for only 10sec!

    man made god so clean and pretty! very impressive! how big do you do them?

    shiNN those vary a bit, but i can see how you grow more confident! great!

    ^ The height of one of my figures is about 3 times bigger than on those images. So they take ages , but I've done a lot of 30 second efforts before with posemaniacs. Good job with getting the optional studies done, I started a Photoshop painting of a flower but I screwed it up royally.

    I can't make posemaniacs nowaday, those figures don't entertain my hedonist self enough and I need other kind of gestures too I hope I will draw more difficult ones too soon, till now they were epic fail.

    katinki: nice ones and I like the digital flower much

    Some life studies.. I'm going to a course once a week now where we get to draw a model for almost 3 hours.. You learn alot, and I noticed that all those posemaniacs studies really helped when actually drawing the real thing

    unfortunately I only got 43 studies of the model.. so addedsome crappy bone studdies aswell.. and suneflowers
