    Spartan Camp #227 - 50 gestures + Optional "Reilly Method Study"

    Spartan Camp #227 - 50 gestures + Optional "Reilly Method Study"

    The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 17th of June.

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


    The background:
    Lately I've been noticing many figure/anatomy studies done in a distinct style. Examples can be found here and here. This method is apparently called the "Reilly method", called after a teacher who utilizes it.
    The finished studies all have a very strong and simple light/dark separation, making you think about the form and correct light placement. The actual construction also has a simple pattern. The method makes sense and seems useful, making it a useful optional study!

    The exercise:
    Do a study trying the "Reilly method". Please check out the following link:

    Guide by Ron Lemen: Here (PDF)

    This is not a technique of my own devising, and I don't quite know the details of it. This technique is also too elaborate to cover in a simple optional study. I would advice you to simply check out some of the links provided, and to give this method a try. You might not like it, or it might be just what you need!

    Reference not obligatory - feel free to play around.

    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!!

    Here's another guide:

    This one (video version here).

    Interestingly, construction is handled slightly different. I'd personally go with Ron Lemen's guide in the original post because of the elaborate write-up. Just posting for another perspective!

    This is my first time participating in the spartan camp. Thank you for the 'Reily method study' link Anthis. I really enjoyed this technique & I believe it is a good method to use for observational figure/gesture drawing.

    I prefer the Billo-Rielly method myself. It's fairly similar, but you absolutely have to "do it live".

    Some real stuff to come later.

    Some hand studies and an eye

    First time participating in the spartan camp, I'm a beginner but I want to learn so constructive criticism is welcome. The sizes got a bit messed up but whatever. 41 to go!

    Finished for this week, did some 10sec, 20, 30 then 60sec with reilly structure.

    Then broke into some graphite reilly shading and inks, finally a bit of reilly-style charcoal.One or two biros too.

    I actually found the reilly method a lot more challenging than I expected until I tried the charcoal, especially with pencil I kept scribbling over my own tone-lines by mistake.
