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.
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.
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.
Here's some inspiration that may apply to the current optional study.
Come on soldiers! Flex those muscles!!

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!

Nice work everyone so far.
Having a break from my wacom and photoshop this week.
None of these I timed, I know they all took over an hour but not sure exactly how long.

The forums wont let me upload any images. So just pasting the links lol sorry.
Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.
In a bad mood? Take it out on my sketchbook! All constructive critique welcome!

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.
