Hi there! I wasn't too happy with how I did for this lesson but I know I shouldn't focus on re-doing stuff too much. I've posted 4 of the demos and 6 other plants I found along with the rest of the homework. I did re-do two pages of branches as well since I wasn't happy with them either. >.<

To whoever will be reviewing, thank you for looking at my work! Appreciate you giving your time for this! :)

Hi Elodin! Thanks so much for taking the time to review my homework! I'll keep in mind the tips you mentioned including the one about getting my elipses' major axis more perpendicular instead of tilting them like I did sometimes. That seems like a major miss by me in not paying attention to the basics! >.<

Once again, thanks a lot since I know you have a lot of work on your plate! I particularly liked your little doodle of a face to show how perspective works. :)

Appreciate all the work you do! Have a great day! :)

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.
