    Spartan Camp #216 - 50 gestures + Optional "Two week long Study"


    Spartan Camp #216 - 50 gestures + Optional "Two week long Study"


    In Anthis's absence I'm starting the next thread, Hope nobody objects!

    The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Friday the 16th of March.

    - 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 "Two week long Study", in any medium.



    The exercise:
    Simple plan, study some thing for two weeks, so work on a painting or sketch for two weeks,
    Old paintings from the pre Raphaelite era or after make good examples or other artists its all up to you as long
    as you don't get demotivated and can stick to something for two weeks.

    http://oldpainting.blogspot.com.au/search/label/1400s

    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!!

    No, I don't deserve a star, I didn't do the optional.

    Not counting the fun in the end of the last topic, I have these this far:

    I really dunno what would happen when I actually drew. I'm still very lazy, my mental state is already okayish but actual drawing is little. But I feel pumped up now
    I really bring babies, elephant, baby elephants and whatnot this week!

    Some Loomis arms. Mostly gesture stuff from pixelovely.com.
    I drew from some stills from the movie the Battle of Algiers as well.

    @shiNIN: Lackadaisy, eh! I love that comic. I also noticed you drew Asuka from Evangelion, a couple of weeks ago. I think it's cool that you could draw different styles, like realism and cartoony.

    shiNIN: font under estimate yourself brother! Every one got a star for there constant dedication and i wasn't sure how
    Anthis ranks people so i took the easy route.
    Also a good long study will be great for you, im liking the range of variety in your work recently, but take it easy, don't slow down but focus on areas that make you feel like you don't want to draw. Take your time thats the secret.

    Bellhop: liking the movement and the form build ups in your gestures good work,

    So night shift last night, woke up remembered Ashess did some
    rugby stuff awhile back so i thought i'd the same...hmmm..
    maybe she did wrestlers?? LOL cant remember now.
    almost 3 hours work hope quality surpasses quantity in my case, off to work soon so during the coming week i should have more to post, keep working hard guys!!!!

    heyy Adrian thanks for the shout out!

    This week's gesture drawings are 2 minutes animal drawings from pixelovely.com and negative space drawings from posemaniacs.com.

    I used different coloured pencils and I decided that a brown colour pencil scans the best (not really a surprise, but I could hope). Every page except for the birdie one was adjusted to heck in photoshop for contrast and curves. The feline page was actually done in bright forest green and it scanned awfully so I changed it to brown.

    I hope you guys don't think I'm being mean for calling that fish ugly ...I guess he's ugly by human standards but I'm sure some fish ladies find him hot or something.

    You are a nice one. I think telling your subjective opinion isn't such a big deal; I think people who kill spiders are mean. And I don't think every spiders are cute, most of them are a blob with legs but I like all I meet
    Sweeet bunny and squirrel sketches
    Good luck for your master study. Multiple figures, it's what scares me most, that's why I'm thinking I should do that too... A single portrait is too quick for two weeks.
    By the way, I think we should make the deadline 18th, it was always Sunday and I like that tradition.

    Sorry guys, I slowed down, I have just this little thing digitally (and some very wip golden jackals I don't wanna show yet. not easy).

    Thanks AdrianNagorski for posting a new thread!
    I've had a bad week and posting a new Spartan Camp got lost in the mess.

    Will get some gestures in soon!

    *Edit* just noticed we had a different optional study*

    Anthis YEAAAA...YOUR BACK!! It was so lonely without you. question..I've been doing 90 sec poses for sometime and also I've decided to study thou Burne Hogarth Dynamic Figure Drawing. i really want to get down a good habit study so that ill improve that fastest. any thoughts???

    Kayess well, when im doing 90 sec poses its easier in mypaint...not like in photoshop where you have to make a new layer or resize them. So far I've been doing them everyday but don't feel like im getting better at it. Feels like im mindless drawing them like a zombie. its pretty easy to doing them...as easy as brushing my teeth..as for the enviro thumbnails since i started them they feel like a chores...i dont feel like i have that much confidence in rendering...put i have to do it if i want to be awesome...

    Shinin nice update... yea, I only like a few thou...there hard for me because I've never painted...Even thou there small i take a few water brakes to clear my head. I'll keep doing them and it'll get easier with time.The next step for me is making bigger more refined enviro.

    Martinc hey, can you make a small tutorial of how you render in mypaint i think it would me?

    darkops: there's a few nice ones again... I love enviros I'm pretty sure they will be very useful for me but almost always end up drawing figures or heads

    Anthis: thanks for the link
    There's kindgirls.com too... But I personally prefer gracefulnudes.com. Mmmm...

    I lost my golden jackals due to blackout and my absent-mindedness, I usually save more often
    I tried to redid them but it wasn't easy. I try to stop copying things and find rhytm and whatnot in animal drawing as well but it will take time.
