    50 completed! Well, to be fair, the last few were done in haste. And so many comments! I'm learning so much from them.

    ashess- Thank you for reassuring me. Somehow the balance thing had seized my thoughts completely. And I'm really glad you like them.

    consone- Thank you too. It's so nice to hear that some things are looking fine. I'm afraid I spend too much time on each, say, 20-25 mins approx. I've tried decreasing the time steadily, but till now it has not worked. I'm hoping to work more and bring it down.

    Anthis- I'm more than honoured if you feel that they are somehow working out. As to the gestures part, I know I'm doing something different, but as this is working for me now, I'm sticking to it for this particular phase. I am definitely trying to work on gestures that capture the essence so to speak, and take much less time, and hope that I can strike a balance as Vritra and you have pointed out.

    Oh, and as to the study, I'll try something tomorrow, but obviously, it will be a one-evening study, so not quite complete and not quite what was required. I'll try all the same.

    shiNIN; You know that's not quite what I meant, I'm open-minded on the matter. I just think its easy to let stylization happen unconsciously even when you're actually aiming for a realistic approach.

    ashess; aha, I see. Makes sense then. Interesting to see your progress, I often follow the same process actually. Eventually I want to be able to draw figures freely and without reference, so that's why I'll often practice without too much construction.

    Aishani
    ; Yea eventually, it's all trial and error, right? Try things out and see what works. Keep challenging yourself. Nice job on the last couple, some tough foreshortening there!


    New round will be posted soon!

    Anthis: So it was the other way around. I don't know if it's sad, I didn't draw a real portrait in ages, after all. I need a lot of time if I wish to draw a realistic face. Or anything.

    Well I guess I can't do anything else this week, I'm a bit worse like usual, I spend half an hour on a SKETCHY hand and it sucks epically. And it was even referenced. What the hell is wrong with me I wonder.
    The optional seem pointless, [deleted part].
    I can't draw. No matter the level, I just don't produce anything. I start to get tired of it.

    So my one-evening study boils down to Wesburt and a couple of hours. Needless to say, the fine, elegant feel of his work is lost in mine.


    ashess- Thanks a lot.

    Anthis- Yes, I'm very much in the process of figuring things out. I'm glad that you liked them.

    The first one belongs to Wesburt. The one that follows is mine.

    ashess, yeah, that was the best I could do in 30 seconds, sorry.

    shiNIN, yeah, it can be pret-ty tiring. I'm usually very averse to doing these things myself, but somehow the participation and level of enthusiasm in here gave me that adrenaline rush to go for it. And it was well worth it. I feel like I learnt more on retrospection rather than when I was actually doing it, though.

    MartinC, just go for it, man. It's less about actually finishing the gestures than trying to finish them/capture their essence.

    Anthis, I find myself in agreement with everything you said. Alternating approach is very important. Also, I think pacing is just as important. You know, you find people practicing for 18 hours a day and they end up becoming rendering machines. It's always good to pace yourself, always take a step back and reassess your situation.

    Aishani, the works are looking good. You've put in a lot of hard work in troubling times. I'm totally proud.


    Here's a Phil Hale study. It's not a two-week long study, just a few hours on it. It's terrible, on the whole, but I'm not completely unhappy with it. Since this is my first time on Sparta, I thought I should at least (to a degree) finish the challenge. It was an educational and humbling experience, participating here. It's a wonderful endeavour, Spartan Camp.

    Vritra: Yeah, Spartan Camp is very blubby recently One day I got excited too and said I would draw 50 arms that day or something like that. Maybe it was the other day but I did it and went to bed late, the last hours were tiring but I had to do it. I didn't learn enough from it I guess, I really should draw things from (my bad visual) memory.

    Hi folks, I'm here spamming this topic again.
    I'm better, sorry.
    Some unrefined stuff (I don't concentrate on nice results, I want to learn something already):
