Spartan Camp #209 - 50 gestures + Optional "Objects in Perspective Study"
The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 15nd of January.
- 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 "Objects in Perspective Study", in any medium.
Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study:
Perspective can be tough and is often shunned. Still, a proper sense of perspective is important also in gesture drawing. A little knowledge of perspective goes a very long way! Therefore this exercise.
The concept is simple: Draw a couple of objects in perspective. Objects can be simple (cubes, rectangles). You do not have to draw out an entire perspective grid, but do make use of perspective lines and a horizon. You could go for a 1, 2 or 3 point perspective setup (or perhaps a short study for each?).
If you need some help on the optional study, you can do some shopping in the links below. Or search google/the tutorials section/deviantart/other places for other guides- there's no shortage!
Link1, Link2 (thank you Vertical!)
Another guide, with lots of theory.
Very basic one (2-point)
Next week optional:
Master Muscle Study.
Requires: Some anatomy knowledge and a suitable piece of art clearly displaying anatomy by a master artist.
As always- reference advised, not obligatory. Colour, medium, time frame, any specifics are up to you! Good luck and have fun! And feel free to ask questions!
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.
Criticizing each other is highly encouraged!! Share constructive criticism, reference images and resources!! Let's help each other get better!
Come on soldiers! Flex those muscles!!
