This appears to be more an expression of frustration, than a question - but I did want to step in briefly and make sure you're keeping the points explained here in mind when drawing your textural gradient.

Additionally, I assume this is what you mean, but when you say "I do what I can in the time that I give myself and call it a day" is that you're out of time for the day you set it aside, and then come back to the same one to continue it (repeating this process until it's finished), rather than simply calling it done when you're out of time for the day. Some students get the idea that they're meant to complete a task/page/attempt in one sitting, which is certainly not the case.

Yeah, I forgot to actually add a question my bad. I'll be sure to go over the link you provided again. And that is correct, I keep working on the same texture until it is done. I try not to take on too much to prevent burnout. Thank you for your reply.

Ellipse Master Template

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.
