    Spartan Camp #209 - 50 gestures + Optional "Objects in Perspective Study"

    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:


    The background:
    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 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?).

    Links:
    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!!

    Exclamation

    Couple of smallish announcements.

    AdrainNagorskiand ashess - Posted a reply in last thread. Thanks for the thoughts!


    - As an experiment, I'll post the next upcoming optional study a week in advance. This way you know what's coming a bit earlier. Won't always be needed, but it can allow you to (passively or actively) stock up on some relevant reference or ideas you happen to come across.
    Goal: make the optional studies more fluent, rewarding, and backed up with guides/links/reference.

    - I have noticed some people were unable to post last week. Posts were 'invisible' as they were not mod-approved. Unfortunately, I cannot help you with this issue myself.
    If you are trying to post, but your post remains invisible: please consult a moderator. Or send me a message and I will nag a mod about it instead.

    - Reference list for this week has been updated!

    Hay evry body

    Thx Anthis i like the change definite improvement. Those are great gestures Vertical I consider them as good as your link. The purpose of gesture is to establish the pose non? So it doesn't have to be perfect..I wonder if the ones in your link were cleaned up for presentation ? Thx for the perspective link too. OMG make a grid and adjust its perspective with transform tools ! Blowing my mind. hehe Hey Ashess nice little start you got there Barksay eh? very cool. Nice perspective studies Adrian, I find some of your figures have stiff or only 1/2 a torso.

    Vertical-- beautiful lines. I really love the fluidity of these!

    ashess-- quick can be a great way to learn. As long as you're focused I think a lot can come of it. Nice work.

    AdrianNagorski-- *sigh*, I suppose perspective stuff is the topic this week. Well, having done none of it I still hate it And am glad you broke the ice. Esp great putting little figures in!

    Obacmar-- Great studies! I'm sure this will come in helpful as a good reference later. I should do some…

    Comments and proper gestures later. I went a little overboard on the Hampton studies.

    gestures, some freehand boxes in 1 & 2 point perspective and a plane study of Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal.

    The Hopkins study failed for me, i dont think its recognisable as Hopkins and it took me a long time to get a crude idea of how the planes and grid building worked. hopefully future attempts do better.

    transform tool!

    hay
    Anthis the torso breakdown is awesome I esp. like the last one with the rendering you certainly know your stuff
    Maiden your work is also top notch fer sure. The faceted face is also one thing on my list of things to study. Agreed it doesn't really look like Hopkin's but the method is cool.
    Today I started with a pile of 30 sec gestures, dont be fooled they are fixed up with transform and warp tools. Then using the grid techniques I learned in one of the references.

    @zy - i usually consider 5 min long! Not that those drawies look like I spent that much time on them; but then I only spent the whole 5 min on the dr phil. And that mostly bc I wanted to get his mustache right.
    hmm with all the beatifullwork pplhave been putting out I feel like I should do more. hopefully tomorrow!

    exercises with cubes & putting a figure in 3d space. started in silouette. I though that would turn out better. now im not so sure.
    Attachment 1399723

    obacmar- those figures in 3d space are awesome!

    anthis- those muscles in diff colors are just so usefull in explaining stuff. going to have to study these again; maybe use as ref if you dont mind ^^
