    Spartan Camp #296 - 50 gestures + optional "Drapery Value Study" Study

    Deadline: Sunday the 2nd of March.


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

    Background
    A very classical study with the 'value' part as a catch. Drapery studies are an excellent exercise not only to practice folds. The drapery makes for great forms with both soft and hard edges. The folds often cast shadows onto each other as well. So in one study you'll most likely have different types of shadows (reminder; form, cast, occlusion) and light (highlight, bounce/reflected light). A great opportunity for some value practice!

    Note; terminology differs a little. I tend to stick to value but others use tone. The same applies to the different types of light and shadow. I'll post more reference on the matter later on.

    Exercise
    Do a value study of a drapery setup.

    Reference
    The best way to do this is to take a piece of cloth (preferentially not too dark), set up a light source, and create your own still life.



    Come on soldiers! Flex those muscles!!

    Slow week!
    Lets see if more people join in. Regardless, a new thread will be up on Monday.


    ji-li; Nice job! Quite a lot of poses and even the optional study. Those gesture drawing tools always provide you with some pretty challenging poses. And it's good to see some of those difficult poses are included as well. When doing these, make sure you give yourself enough space to draw. I could be wrong, but in some of these figures it seems they are 'cramped up' slightly to make them fit. You can just overlap them if you run out of space. Also its nice to see those boxes and geometrical shapes you added at some point. The paper may be flat but the shapes you draw should feel three-dimensional. Its good practice to use cubes and cylinders to construct figures.
    Good effort on the optional study, because its not an easy one. The monitor is a nice touch!



    All from reference, first one on a short timer. Then some longer stuff. Nothing from imagination unfortunately.

    Slightly late, anyway, this is for the past week.
    @ji-li: Nice, always nice to see numbers ! I have to agree with Anthis, try and construct the figures around basic shapes, draw through them so you know how/where they are placed in the '3D' space. Anyway, keep it up!
    @Anthis: Those are some nice figure + value studies you got there! The construction looks pretty well thought out. Lookin good lookin good, keep it up!

    I'm very late as usual... It was a slow week. At some point, I started to feel my hand has flow in them but it passed away, I need to get it back.
    I'm very displeased with my stuff except that I had some idea, I just failed to realize them this far, they are in sketch state.

    I totally failed my half-assed optional but whatever, I include that crap too.

    Sorry for the negativity, my inner critic starts to recover, too bad he can't keep me to post these.
    I try to bring more PS stuff next week.

    I totally used ancientdrake's latest stuff as it's way easier than using my imagination or photos. And they were tempting. I was glad when I totally changed some of them, that's fun and useful.
    I hope it's okay, I tend to do such things, using whatever inspires me (if it's just practice).

    @shiNIN: No problem at all, I'm not sure what you are actually doing? But I presume it's something along the lines of looking at my drawings and using them as a ref. for your drawings which you then improve? Use it all as much as you like, I'm glad if it'll be of any use to you, just watch out for my mistakes, some of them are done with quite the haste... ^_^. Can I ask, what did you/do you learn from them? Or your observations in general. Anyway man, keep it up!
