    Spartan Camp #255- 50 gestures + Optional "Animal Anatomy" Study

    Spartan Camp #255- 50 gestures + Optional "Animal Anatomy" Study

    The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 24th of February.

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

    The Background
    In this activity we tend to focus on human anatomy. We'll use this optional study to do some animal anatomy for a change!

    The Exercise
    The goal is to study animal anatomy. You are free to study any animal(s) in particular. Since this is the Spartan Camp however, it may be interesting to go with mammals or at least vertebrates. This allows you to compare animal and human anatomy and perhaps even look for the similarities and differences. Don't worry though - there's no need to take this into the extreme. Use this study however you like. Some examples inclued; a single animal skull, or perhaps some muscle study, or maybe some outside views of the whole body.
    Check out the reference below!

    Reference
    Anatomical illustrations (such as for veterinarians) are a solid source of reference. Some examples below!
    LINK - Large sized anatomical images (mammals). I'm looking for more sources like these, feel free to suggest any you happen to find!
    LINK - Loads of anatomical illustrations here!
    LINK: Not sure about these since they look fairly dated. Interesting nonetheless.
    LINK - Google books can be a nice resource, though the number of pages you can see is limited. Here's an example.

    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!!

    Seems this one didn't get posted earlier. From now on I'll make sure to double check whether the thread actually appears.

    I'll extend the deadline since this round is late!

    I was watching the last episode of David Attenborough's awesome Africa series and tried to quickly draw what was on the screen.

    Tried some more of my own gestures lol, got fed up, so scrapped them and crawled back to the Loomis book and copied some of his mannequins. They're rushed because I was trying to focus of the gesture rather than getting it to look like a copy of his stuff. Then I tried my own mannequins, which are even more scruffy sorry!

    Updated with some tonal horses.

    What a strong start Animare The second shaded study looks wonderful.

    Hamorhage, I love the street drawings, they're soo cool. Did anyone ask to see your sketchbook?


    Sorry for the bad quality, I don't have a scanner these days.

    Haha, well..people were looking over my shoulder. But it was freezing out and I had too much tea, so I didn't hang around until the VIPs came

    Here are some more sketches (toonifying my subjects,a caricature and some sketches from Kung Fu Hustle):

    I was lazy last time. This time it's different.
    Bat practice and 60 gestures: I still want to lower the amount of lines I use. I should increase the time.

    vinterdragen nice hands and feet studies and thanks for posting the links to your reference.
    Hamorhage I really love your characters. Definitely inspires me to keep trying to add life and purpose to my imaginary gestures. Also was it you that linked that character animation video on facebook from BFI? It was fantastic!

    Some stuff I've done so far:
    Mostly imagination gestures. I've gotten into using this mannequin to get my gesture down without getting stuck on all the details. Plus I'm constantly thinking "what's going through this characters head, how did they end up in this pose?"
    Also did a few mannequin poses from what I had done in my boxing class yesterday morning, combined with a feeble attempt at perspective lol.
    The digital drawings are some 2min poses and then some untimed poses.

    Animare: Love the burpees'!
    Flashback: I really like 6, 14 and 15.
    e-nat: Great stuff bro, you inspire to tackle some construction practices!

    I love this spartan weekly, I think all you guys are great and this thread is such a great way to improve .

    I'm thinking about studying some animal anatomy, maybe bat anatomy or dragon anatomy(dunno if this count as animal xD).

    Keep working!

    I am doing animation these last few weeks, and it's seriously cut out a lot of time for studies
    Still look the sketchbook along for a ride on the bus today:

    In the meantime, keep doing your things amigos! Looking great! Glad to see animare, flash and e-nat putting in consistant output.
    Great production from cinterdragon, wonder if you can keep that up for weeks? It's great work!

    Never draw cartoon bats when you are drunk, and had Fish and Chips.

    I had a bunch of gestures of cats which I have to find.
