    Spartan Camp #101 - 50 gestures + Optional Study of a "Sci-Fi Character"

    Spartan Camp #101 - 50 gestures + Optional Study of a "Sci-Fi Character"
    The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 23th of August.

    - The gestures can be of anything, human, animal, cavorting capybaras.... You can draw full figures, but you can also go for heads, arms, eyes, or anything specific. All media can be used, both digital or traditional. Coloured or black/white. Quick scribbles or long studies. Imagination or referenced. Clothed or nude. Specifics are up to you!

    - In addition to this, participants can choose to do an Optional Study of "Objects in Perspective", in any medium.
    Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study: Sequel to last weeks topic. Either from ref or imagination. Have fun! Colour, medium, time frame, any specifics are also up to you!

    50 poses is a challenge, but don't hurry or stress yourself reaching it! Focus on drawing, as practising is the main goal of this exercise.

    Critting each other is highly encouraged!! Share constructive criticism, reference and resources!! Let's help each other get better!

    Come on soldiers! Flex those muscles!!

    Guess I'll get it started. Actually did these Sunday night. Went about it all wrong, tried to rush and get them out as quick as possible. Sadly this still took me almost 2 hours... Anyway next set will be better.
    Also working on the optional and would love some collaborative assistance with a draw over maybe to make sure my proportions aren't all out of kilter.

    All these are no ref. Next set will do a couple refs.

    First post is a 15 min ArtRage sketch of a master work (Botticelli). Will be putting some extra focus on master portraits for a month, then'll do torsos for a month.

    Might mean I will go down in quantity for a while - but hopefully not quality ;-)

    Here we go kicking off #101!


    baka: #6, #7, #8, #15, #20 are my favs. I love the linework.
    Mindbendermind: That's a great plan of attack to focus. Excellent start with that portrait; keep them coming!

    References used for all except the bug eyed character and #10; which feels like I did better hair on it than when I actually had reference.

    Just for Anthis, I did a couple refs.. heh see if you can guess which they are
    Got burnt out on gestures and decided to paint some on that face.. THAT is what happens when you try to paint with lousy lineart.
    #9 started out so well but the left leg took a bad turn and it all went downhill.
    #5 was adamp inspired, had to get that arm "technique" (basically doing it right)
    #4 was the result of too much caffeine.

    Second pic is the optional sci-fi character I was working on. Inspiration for it dried up when I couldn't get the other arm right. I tried it so many different ways... Unless someone wants to nudge me in the right direction gonna walk away from it for a few days.

    adamp - Damn! I am loving those, # 7,8,11 really hot and clean. I'd love to be able to do hips the way you do. I need to get whatever books you are using

    Thanks. :-) The ref comes from the great site Web gallery of art

    Hmm...seems I can't link to the actual page of the ref (found by search function at the site). Will try to attach the ref image instead.

    Also posting another 15 min master study - this time from Caravaggio:

    i have never participated in a spartan camp but these always sounded fun.

    i just did these in an hour, hopefully i can get all 50 (or close) done today. with school and everything im not sure if ill have time before sunday, so im going to make an effort to do a spartan camp day of extremeness.

    yesterday i did some bridgman studies, ill post those as soon as i can get to a scanner. also, later today i might be doing some life drawing, in which case ill scan those.

    i used posemaniacs as a ref for these. let me know what i need to do to improve. i understand i am probably using too many lines, not capturing the gesture quickly enough. any tips on this (or anything) would be much appreciated!

    Snow Lion Great post! thanks! They just kept getting better and better as I scrolled down! Very dynamic, lots of energy. A bit exaggerated here and there but that is kind of a good thing. I like the size you posted at as well, can really see the construction lines.

    Pumpkin - body proportions look good, you might benefit from some more focus on skull and head proportions. Great addition to the camp, we all appreciate your participation and sharing.

    Burnout

    So burnt out, can't seem to even manage decent stick figures. Probably going to take an art break for a few days. This set is crap but I figured I'd post anyway cause I think it makes close to 50.
    Was attempting to do 'soft touch' gestures. Didn't go so well. I'll try again with refs some other time.
