Thanks, the app is new to me and I'm learning step by step. :)

I read and liked how you commented on Hal9000 lesson 1. You observed and evaluated according to the criteria of what the exercises required, making a good point on what was well done and what needed to be reviewed.

I know you have just finished lesson two but can I take the opportunity to ask you, if possible, to have a look and a comment on my 250 box challenge? It would meant a lot to me.

Thanks again for the comment and see you again maybe on Discord or Drawabox :)

Thanks for what you said about my critique. That was my first and I tried to go straight since I am not that advanced on Draw A Box. Hope it helped Hal9000.

Sure I may see your 250 Boxes, but right now I'm on phone and it's too small to see it well. As soon as I have access to my notebook I will give a look.

See ya!

You're welcome, we are all on the same journey and don't worry we will improve somehow someday. I'm sure it had, he better now know where he can continue on and where has to improve :)

Yeah, sure it's not that easy on the small screen :o

See ya! :)

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

### 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.
