Wow this took a while ;p First thoughts going in this were the same as insects, felt really anxious about starting, but near the end, i felt a lot more relief and confidence. Im looking forward to any critique to improve even more, thank you in advance!

PS: I think i should've tried a bit more fiddling with fur, its definitely something ill add on my practice rounds. Especially on tails.

Alvin TD1267 Even 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, but most of those that I've seen are produced by Alvin. 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.
