This is how I go aobut doing the ellipses when I have trouble placing it correctly on the minor axis, https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/368871209926131712/935198815282155550/krita.jpg.

First draw your minor axis(or flow line for your branches, etc), then place two dots(with length of the ellipse in mind) perpendicular to the minor axis using ghosting method. Then ghost & draw the ellipse on those dots.

If it's tough to achieve them digitally(if you've screenless tablet), try them traditionally first to get the basic idea.

I hope this works for you & good luck with the next lesson.

### The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
