    Spartan Camp #220 - 50 gestures + Optional "Different Angle Study"

    Spartan Camp #220 - 50 gestures + Optional "Different Angle Study"

    The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 22th of April.

    - 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 "Different Angle Study", in any medium.
    Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study:


    A familiar topic for some of you who have participated before.
    You take a reference image of a human figure. You then do a study of this figure as seen from a completely different angle. You can change the viewpoint any way you wish from a simple rotated view to an elaborate foreshortened angle. For the sake of critique, you might want to post the reference image along with the study (or provide a link).

    The purpose? Analysing the figure so that you can 'make it your own' and reproduce it in a different form. It's a mixture between a referenced and imagination/deduction.

    You'll need reference for this one! 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!!

    Ouch.

    If I tell you I'm very fine and extra dedicated now and I promise nice portraits for this round (and figures too, I really should get take this seriously), will you feel a tiny bit better?

    Just a little work on an old fail beginning ~ It looks sooo much better now.

    @ShiNIN Theres something I can't pinpoint about that portrait. It just feels off in a way I can't really put a finger on. The eyes are oddly adjusted. The shapes are aligned but the pupils are offset. Nonetheless between the old WIP and this one theres a noticeable improvement.

    -------
    Some fashion gestures. Experimenting mainly with a large textured brush and hard opacity brush.

    Trying to find some sort of harmony between hard/soft/lost edges. No easy task but quite fun.

    Little-Maiden: Looks cool.

    ashess: I tried to search a small one with kind of right colors (I never know what the original paintings are like, I just take guesses, a painter surely didn't obscure important things or made it ugly), it's not the whole portrait but nothing important got cut.

    This one was hard. I usually don't draw this kind of face in this kind of lighting, I didn't completely understand it.

    Ah, i see now! Well, jefferson's forehead should recede more. Also, i think you gave him too much hair on top. The jaw is spot on though. Very telling!
    In the last one, your version is a little bit too wide, and overall too shiney. Im just nitpicking though; I like it!

    ashess: Thanks but I'm quite good at noticing differences myself (I mean, the blatant ones, too wide, too much hair... I don't think my second one is too shiny, I wanted it to have more contrast). Much later than I should because I just copy instead of compare or looking at the whole... I always realize my mistake but never could fix it this far
    And you can't imagine how horrible the beginning is used to be. Not just this "small" things, oh no, huge proportions flaws (I mean it. gigantic). No wonder, I really fight with my early sketches, they are simply pathetic, I can't seem to grasp anything.. I think it's what keep me from drawing more. I can't start things well

    Erm, being busy with gardening, gaming came into the way so I have only such a sketchy thing using a caricature as ref I don't even want to show yet. I don't know if I will "finish" it. It's not my intention to produce nice looking stuff, I want to learn. Faces always interested me but they are so hard. What makes a face looks like a certain person's? How faces change as the person age? What happens with features when the expression change? Why a nice, soft pair of lips is evidently a man's if I see pretty similar ones on women? I have such questions and I can't answer them. But I'm more curious than before. But not enough to start to draw like crazy, it seems.

    @shin- if you have trouble noticing the issues in time, why dont you do a mirror after 3 minutes of drawing? draw on a few min, then mirror again...

    Hello guys!
    I have been learning something about heads, but I totally forgot on poses. (not forgot but I have been really avoiding it, don't know why, maybe because it's hard to draw them.)
    So here is some really bad poses and my try to draw fashion gestures.(with ref, of course)

    Little-Maiden: As I can see, we have the same website for fashion gestures, but yours are much better.

    shiNIN: I suggest to draw and observe skull. Draw it in different angles and try to understand, because head is only skull, fat, muscles and features like eyes...(don't forget on planes and construction too.)
    You will find answer on your questions in Loomis book. It's worth to read.
    Nice looking stuff will always come with understanding and practice.

    Syle: bigger views will be probably better.

    ps- what im doing is trying to make my stuff a lil cleaner; but im not sure if im cheating. I start in white, then add the black, then fill the white lines.

    I think I should leave the white lines huh, they werent all that messy; and they should be the ones I focus on getting clean. I think.

    pps:i know ive been a lazy basterd and brought little to the table, work nor critwise. ill make up for the latter soon!

    @blu01 Yeah, thesartorialist is a good resource. Though anyone using ctrl+paint should know of it. I think mine are "better" only cause it looks prettier with colours not because they're actually "better"

    -----

    some more gestures. I've actually got to get started on the angle study.
