Spartan Camp #196 - 50 gestures + Optional "Long Foreshortened Study"
The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 11th of September.
- 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 "Long Foreshortened Study", in any medium.
Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study:
We've done foreshortened gestures before so most of you will probably be familiar with this. A certain distortion takes place because an object is angled towards the viewer. When drawing, this distortion can be used to create a feeling of depth. Like an optical illusion.
For this weeks optional study, find a good reference image of a human body in a foreshortened pose. You do not have to spend hours, just spend enough time to get a good grasp of this particular pose.
Stock or modelling photography, as well as sports pictures should provide good sources of reference.
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!!
