    Spartan Camp #261 - 50 gestures + Optional "Long Figure Study"

    Deadline: Sunday the 21th of April.



    In addition to this, participants can choose to do an Optional "Long Figure Study", in any medium.

    Background
    We have a little longer this week (see second post). We'll make use of that time and take the opportunity to perform a longer study.

    Exercise
    This weeks' optional study will be a long figure study from reference. The approach is rather simple.
    Start by finding a good quality image of a figure, possibly high-resolution. I'll be adding possible reference sources shortly. The figure can be clothed or nude, coloured or in black/white. Take some time for sketching, and post work in progress shots if possible. This way we can offer critique along the way, which is a big advantage. We have some more time, so we can spend a little more time on refining as well.

    Reference

    Inspiration
    Here's some inspiration that may apply to the current optional study.

    Quick post, I'm editing this today.

    These forums were down for a while again. I hope the forums will be more stable, since this is quite a bother.

    I extended the deadline slightly. To offset that, we got a challenging optional study!

    I'm seeking a different approach to gesture drawing, so this is a confused post. :p
    For the long study I'm still doubting between a photo study or a master study. Mmh.

    Hey guys, I thought I could chip into the camp as well. Here is a collection of 30 sec gestures from today. I scaled it all down from 6 'segments', original dimension of each segment is 3000x2000 I think.

    Really nice gestures already! Working hard to free up some time so that I may add some gestures and critique.

    It seems the forum is not very cooperative at the moment, especially the uploader. I'm sure they're busy fixing that. Currently I'm also trying to get the Spartan Camp thumbnail updated. It's taking a while because I can't do that myself, and the mods seem quite occupied.

    Hello, everyone. I'm new to all of this, so please bear with me and feel free to offer advice if I'm posting incorrectly or doing anything wrong, etc. Here is my start to the Optional "Long Study", clearly a work-in-progress. The reference is also included (from noah parrell blogspot dot com).

    By the way, it's really helpful seeing other submissions for the gesture drawings. I discovered this site about a month ago and have been watching ever since.
