Spartan Camp #115 - 50 gestures + Optional Study of "Movement Cycle"
The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 29th of November.
- 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 "Movement Cycle", in any medium.
Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study: Most poses, even the static ones, are part of a certain movement or motion. A gesture is both coming from, and going to an action. Think of your pose as a single frame of an animation. This is an important element of gesture drawings, as it conveys purpose and realism.
This weeks optional study is to draw the subsequent steps (say, 3 or 4). Sort of like a walking cycle. You can use your imagination or animators' walk cycles. You can grab a film, or a video on youtube. Any movement or action will do. Colour, medium, time frame, any specifics are also up to you! Have fun!
(topic inspired by CA streaming course 'creating dynamic poses for art and animation' by Chris Hatala)
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!!
