Spartan Camp #213- 50 gestures + Optional "Drawing Technique Study"
The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 12th 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 "Drawing Technique Study", in any medium.
Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study:
We've never really looked into the actual act of drawing itself, so we'll look at a couple of different techniques for this optional study. Regardless of the medium, there are always many different techniques. When for example using a pencil, you can use the tip as well as the side. Cross hatching, contour lines, scribbling, there are different ways to draw. The goal for this week is to explore some techniques.
How to go about this study? The best would be to try something new with your medium, or pay attention to the technique specifically. Some examples. Paint some objects on your desk using the side of your pencil. Or a referenced figure where you explore cross-hatching. A few objects, just in contour lines. Or do some quick gestures by just scribbling.
Have to admit the subject is kind of new to me, and I couldn't dig up too many guides. But here's something to get you started. If anyone can think of other techniques, do tell!
Next weeks optional study
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!!
