How to Use The Enveloping Method for Better Proportions
The enveloping method helps you to draw proportions more accurately and is often used in figure drawing. In this lesson, I take you through a drawing of a simple figure using a white charcoal pencil on a black piece of paper.
However, you can follow the first half of the lesson (the envelope technique) using any materials you like - such as a regular graphite pencil.
Pencil: I use a white charcoal pencil by Faber Castell but and brand will do and you can follow the first half of the lesson (enveloping method) with a regular graphite pencil.
Paper: Any dark drawing paper but again you can follow the enveloping technique with a plain piece of sketching paper.
Other: An eraser and a blade/sand paper for sharpening your charcoal pencil. *** Reference Material
