Spartan Camp #232 - 50 gestures + Optional "Workspace Study"
The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 29th of July.
- 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 "Workspace Study", in any medium.
Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study:
"Draw everything" is something you may have heard before. It is often used by members of this and other forums when asked how to improve at drawing. The rationale is simple; if you want to be able to create and draw from imagination, you need to build a visual library and practice drawing whatever you may see. Broaden your horizon! Different shapes and forms, materials, perspective.... You can learn just about anything.... and you may encounter unexpected problems.
Draw your workspace, desk, and/or any objects lying around. Your room is fine too. No limitations! This is a small break from the optional studies related to gesture drawing, but challenging nonetheless!
Same as above. I know many artists have done this, so I'll be looking up some examples to post them here.
Edit: here's one (DA) to give you ideas, though slightly too elaborate for a spartan camp optional.
Edit2: I would say this one is more appropriate, (note; by the same artist).
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!!
