Spartan Camp #215 - 50 gestures + Optional "Movie Gestures Study"
The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 26th of February.
- 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 "Movie Gestures Study", in any medium.
Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study:
Simple plan. You take any movie or animated picture from which you can gather gestures. Can be human or animal, as long as it involves figures in motion. You pick some gestures from this movie and draw them. It would be especially interesting to get a couple of them, possibly showing movement or indicating an action. At least make sure the figures are clear. You can take screenshots, or simply pause. No need to go for really intense studies, quick gestural sketches will suffice!
You can use just about any reference. From feature films to music videos or dancing, from wildlife documentaries to random clips on youtube. Animation counts too. You can also use your television. If you happen to be at a complete loss for material, there's also a variety of websites with screenshots.
Next weeks study will be a more intense one, so we're keeping it simple this week!
Next weeks study:
Single Long Study (This will span two weeks, from reference, and will include many reference sources)
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!!
