The ever so gracious Spencer Nugent (known as sketchaday) reviewed one of my design sketches a few Fridays ago on his live stream and I tried to apply what I learned from him while trying to stay true to my original design intent. Would love to hear your thoughts!

I didn't know this Youtube channel, thank's for the share!

Great job on the flashlight, what was Spencer's suggestions?

Thanks, loopkin! He had made suggestions regarding keeping the marker work "fresher" - more paper showing through, more contrast, as well as some functional design feedback on the flashlight itself.

Great channel! I will definitely take lessons there when I get to lesson 6 (I'm currently in lesson 4) ...

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.
