Spartan Camp #235 - 50 gestures + Optional "Master Study"
The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 19th of August.
- 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 "Master Study", in any medium.
Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study:
Surely, everyone artists he or she looks up to. We all have our favourites, whether or not this is a personal preference or someone who is commonly regarded as a master. This week, you're free to get inspired by an artist you admire and/or you think you could learn from, and produce a master study.
Produce a master study. This means you take an existing artwork and reproduce (parts of) it for educational purposes. There's a fine line between copying and studying here. Your goal is to learn something from the original artwork, be it the style, handling of the medium, composition, linework, or anything else. Learn from the masters by drawing after them.
Old masters, new masters, or artists you personally consider masters of their trade- no restrictions!
This is completely up to your own preference.
Here are however some examples of master studies: Tumblr.
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!!
