Enveloping the Figure
Alright, so there I was in a my first day of figure drawing class. The semester is starting it's third or fourth week.
So there I was with a nude figure in front of me, but the nudity isn't the problem, I've seen thousands of nude people, I'm not really surprised that I'm unphased.
However, this is my first day of class, I don't know how to draw.
So, I asked my instructor to show me. Now, I think my instructor broke it down and taught me pretty well and fast. She taught me something called enveloping, which is where you box the subject in in about 6 lines, and add more boxes from there. However, after enveloping, and re-enveloping, and more enveloping of a drawing where do I go from there, How do I know when to get past the line and go into the values ? After enveloping the plane changes, what's next ?
Also, I need to copy a masters drawing not a painting, but a drawing. It will be on 18x24 paper,Does anyone have any suggestions of which drawing to take on?
