Am I correcting the minor axis of my cylinders right?

I understand that they have to cut the ellipses in half, but am I doing it right?

I think you are trying to do it right but some are a bit off. 3 and 7 in particular.

Oh okay, I'll keep going then, thank you :)

As far as I see, you have to cut the cylinders in half. 6 and 7 are not right, the line should pass through the centre of the ellipses.

If you think that you are cutting the ellipse in half, then there is no single line that does the job. Consider a circle, is there only one single line that cuts the circle in half? No, and same is with ellipse. This is because ellpise is nothing but you looking at a 2D circle in a 3D plane from different perspectives.

Thanks for your answer! I didn't see the notification earlier (was logged out of the website and didn't realize) but your comment is very helpful.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
