How do I use my ellipse template in the wheel challenge?
2:32 AM, Saturday April 23rd 2022
I feel like my ellipse template is hindering me more than helping me. It's great not having to worry about making a bad ellipse but it only has ellipses at 4 angles, which makes it hard to draw a wheel that foreshortens in a believable way. The angles of the 3 ellipses that together make up the wheel's structure either change too much or too little. The ellipses themselves are also pretty small, which makes it hard to draw the details of the tread on some wheels.
I'm wondering if there's a specific way I should be using the template, because frankly I'm not sure why it's recommended.
