I haven't learn proportions yet :(, but i'm quite surprised with your feedback.

It looks believable and solid when I look at your drawing. Also, the perspective gives the illusion of 3-D space, so I wanted to express this. I didn't learn about perspective or proportions either. But as I keep drawing for fun, the end results of the new drawings becomes better in each time, because of my increased visual library. And even if I don't think about some specific proporitons or perspective rules all the time, I can draw more accurate scenes. That's what I felt when I look at your drawing. It was a believable scene, I really didn't think about the techniques applied in it, I just thouth that it had nice proportions. I am sorry if I coused a confusion.

Ellipse Master Template

Ellipse Master Template

This recommendation is really just for those of you who've reached lesson 6 and onwards.

I haven't found the actual brand you buy to matter much, so you may want to shop around. This one is a "master" template, which will give you a broad range of ellipse degrees and sizes (this one ranges between 0.25 inches and 1.5 inches), and is a good place to start. You may end up finding that this range limits the kinds of ellipses you draw, forcing you to work within those bounds, but it may still be worth it as full sets of ellipse guides can run you quite a bit more, simply due to the sizes and degrees that need to be covered.

No matter which brand of ellipse guide you decide to pick up, make sure they have little markings for the minor axes.
