    Spartan Camp #318 - 50 gestures + Optional `Shoulder Anatomy Study'

    Deadline: Sunday the 24th of August.


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

    Background
    Every few weeks we do anatomy studies in the Spartan Camp, with varying topics. This week we will be covering the shoulder!

    Exercise
    Study the anatomy of the shoulder. This can be the bone structure, musculature, everything, or any specific parts. If you don´t feel like studying the inner anatomy, you could also do a study of the 'outside view'. Remember that the primary goal is to learn something new about the shoulder! Studies like these are extremely helpful if you want to be able to draw figures from imagination for your own work.

    You should have some good reference around to make sure you are learning it the right way. Also, knowing the names of some of the bones and muscles can be extremely useful.



    Come on soldiers! Flex those muscles!!

    These are one-week challenges. Rounds usually last until Sunday is over. We're not too strict though. But posting gestures last minute often means people are already focused on the next week, so you might not get as much critique/comments.
    Summer can be a bit low on attendance, I'm not sure if I can get something done this week either. If you're struggling to finish this up, feel free to join next week. A new thread is usually up on Sunday/Monday! Have fun!

    Some critique!
    Next thread is up too, I'll be participating this week as well. See you there! Feel free to use this thread for discussion though. Nothing gets closed.

    Sizun
    - Hey! Welcome back. I often take breaks too. You don't want this to be a chore, just a good challenge. Either way, nice work. Any specific reference used? I think I recognize a couple poses from the gesture tools. I think you did a pretty solid job getting the basic gesture in there. You're very economical with your lines too, or do you usually do a light sketch? I'm seeing something like a 'flow' line through many of these gestures though. There are a couple of sheets with poses that are not as strong (like the 8th image, with the dancing woman). Perhaps the figure was really thin, or using drapery? Nice job experimenting on that last page with gestures. Always good to try out new things!

    SRB - Nice, you made it! Gestures don't have to be incredibly detailed, so you can do simple figures just fine. As long as you try to capture the pose in there. You've got some nice variation, with different approaches. I think you were really 'warming up' near the end though. For example the second last row of figures. The ones that are not stick figures, and two of which are seated poses. Those are very effective. They may be simplified and only done in a few lines, but the gesture is pretty clear and the proportions are solid too. Good stuff!

    ancientdrake - I really like how you explore both a '3d' approach with building blocks and shapes, as well as a method with curved lines and organic drawing. The third image you uploaded has a really strong set of poses with a female in slightly differnent positions, kind of like she's moving. I thought these really stand out. Nice balance. And there's quite a bit of foreshortening going on too. Is the very last set of poses figures from imagination? Also, one of the scans is upside down. Fun to see a single value study in there as well (last figure). Think you lost some of the value structure in the chest area, but those legs are excellent. Solid 3d form. Nice work!

    Anthis, thank you for your useful comment. I used CroquisCafé references (some videos on YT and some pictures from the website). I study with Proko's gesture videos and he recommends drawing a flow line first so this is what I do The sheets are not posted in the order I drew them, and I think the weakest one was indeed the first on that day. And yes, I struggle with thin models. Thanks again for taking the time.
