When an ellipse is drawn incorrectly, your brain screams that something is wrong. Here are three tips to drawing ellipses correctly:
1 Remember, you are drawing a circular shape; there should be no flat spots or pointy areas in the smallest area where the ellipse curves.
2 Visualize all sides of the elliptical object and draw the complete ellipse before shading. Try to see through it.
3 Remember, you should be able to fold your ellipse in half, with all sides matching.
