Before putting the mark on the paper, use the ghosting method and visualize what kind of ellipse it would be. Once you're satisfied draw it.

Yeah they will improve as you continue doing them. But when I take the time ghosting over the paper before going down on it, I have much more precision.

Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
