Challenges of the week give artists the opportunity to create new and fantastic art based on a weekly theme set by the challenge moderators. They are also a great place to develop core skills.
Being featured on ConceptArt.org can get your artwork viewed by millions of artists a month including big industry leaders.

This week the aim is:
Produce 50 gestures and two drapery studies by Sunday the 22nd of July.Register to join the troops below!
The gestures can be of anything, old men, feet, hands, paws, claws, robots, animals, three headed monkeys and so forth.
The first drapery study will be of a cloth or clothing item of your choice, draped loosely over the back of a chair. See page one of Fred Flickstone's tutorial if you feel lost. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=14739
The second drapery study is to draw an item of clothing being worn or maybe a cloth draped over the human form.
Limit each of the drapery studies to about an hour. The aim is to learn how the folds fall.
Again, please put all your pics in the one post for ease of viewing. There is a little more time this week since I was late posting the topic.
(This exercise is separate from last weeks'.)

Whoo! Numbah one! Now to conquer those drapery studies...
Consider them conquered. Sort of. My drapery work definitely needs some studying, so I'm glad for these exercises. The first one is from life, the second from a photo by Stephen Jacobson, out of a book called The Costume-Maker's Art.
And here are the gestures, all done in 1-2 mins. The first batch are from life.
These are after Donald Carrick, from the picture book Dr. Change.
After Adam Rex, from Frankenstein Makes A Sandwich.
And finally, gestures after three artists: Mucha, Brom, and Olga Dugina and Andrej Dugin.

Cool...these are really becoming a great exercise for me. No digital stuff this time though, gotta get my pens out. Keep up the good work everyone!
Okay, first group of more gestures. First time using pose maniac...30 seconds...started off awfully rough but I think I got the hang of it.
Drapery study 1...think I overworked this one.
Drapery study 2 from fashion magazine.

woopsiedaisy missed last weeks
I'll do this weeks assignment but won't be able to post it. This because I'm staying at my boyfriends place and have a summerjob there, and we don't have a decent scanner here. So expect the images here in a week or three if anyone comes around to check anyways.
Woo! Drapery studies left. And it's only Wednesday.
just like to say thnx MeTaL-Mike and trashy for the nice comments from last week
Some poses, again from pose maniac on 90 seconds setting...
Also some fashion studies, drawn from fashion images i found on the net...
A drapery study done from a fashion image, i just got painter and i am still trying to figure out how to use it so this took well over an hour
57 gestures. Pencil on paper. Photo reference used.
2 drapery studies. Digitally painted. The first one from life, the second one from a photo found on the net.
PS-sorry about the huge size of my images; I didn't realize they'd be that big
Adi. Hey, no problem man
your line placement in your figures are drool worthy. Keep up the great work! Out of curiosity what website are you going to for the fashion studies? Just wondering if there's any good sites in particular for those.
BEAR JR Great charcoal work again! Nice sketchy lines as well in the gestures.
Saera Nice Horses! It's cool to see a change up in the studies. Good feet also, I need to work on those myself.
tmyohlaing Looking good with those gestures. Your getting there with your drapery studies also. The B&W is pretty good. Maybe try to smooth your edges next time more.
Well, maybe see you all next round. Thanks Cwn Annwn for keeping this running.
