On this one I drew the envelope first, added a few other guide lines, then attempted to draw the figure in using straight lines. Even on the ones that appear curved, I tried to draw them in straight increments so they appear more curved. I also used a proportional divider to help locate points after the basic envelope was in place. The figure si just a bit less than 9" high.

Basic Envelope: On paper the figure is about 8" high. I sketched it, enclosed it in an envelope, then compared it to my model, after which I had to correct the location of her right foot as you can detect in the drawing. I can see another location error as well (her right arm; close, but not right). My sketch reminds me of Degas' bathers. Very valuable exercise: this is a tool for constant use.
