Spartan Camp #255- 50 gestures + Optional "Animal Anatomy" Study
The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 24th 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 "Animal Anatomy" Study, in any medium.
Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study:
In this activity we tend to focus on human anatomy. We'll use this optional study to do some animal anatomy for a change!
The goal is to study animal anatomy. You are free to study any animal(s) in particular. Since this is the Spartan Camp however, it may be interesting to go with mammals or at least vertebrates. This allows you to compare animal and human anatomy and perhaps even look for the similarities and differences. Don't worry though - there's no need to take this into the extreme. Use this study however you like. Some examples inclued; a single animal skull, or perhaps some muscle study, or maybe some outside views of the whole body.

Anatomical illustrations (such as for veterinarians) are a solid source of reference. Some examples below!
LINK - Large sized anatomical images (mammals). I'm looking for more sources like these, feel free to suggest any you happen to find!
LINK - Loads of anatomical illustrations here!
LINK: Not sure about these since they look fairly dated. Interesting nonetheless.
LINK - Google books can be a nice resource, though the number of pages you can see is limited. Here's an example.
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!!
