Spartan Camp #256- 50 gestures + Optional "Movie Gestures Study"
The aim is to produce 50 gestures by Sunday the 3rd of March.
- 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 "Movie Gestures Study", in any medium.
Additional notes on this weeks’ Optional Study:
Gestures in films will most likely display some sort of emotion or be part of an action, which can produce useful study material. It also sets them apart from drawings referenced from posemaniacs and most photography, since those are mostly non-functional gestures. For this weeks optional study, use film/movies as reference for a couple of your gestures. For the sake of this exercise full body shots and human figures would probably be most suitable. If wish, you could also do a few longer figures or some portraits. Stick to using film reference though, and note the film's name down. We might recognize them!
Any film you own, *cough*downloaded*cough*, parts or trailers that can be seen on sites like youtube, or screenshots.
When it comes to gesture drawing, where does gender make a difference? Proportions, mass, size, muscle and fat placement, bone structure, you name it. Once can often recognize someone's gender from far away, even with very little information. In this optional study, focus on these differences. A comparison may be most suitable. For example, a male and female face, leg, arm, torso compared. Or the same gesture, in both a male and female version. Or a side-by-side comparison of the two, the type you often find in anatomy drawing textbooks.
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!!
