Simple and effective way to draw an ellipse

edited March 10 in Drawing
I found this video very useful, such an easy method.


  • Clever.
    I was worried to begin with, he seemed to be wasting an inordinate amount of time but I suppose he is teaching to the lowest common denominator!
    A trick to remember should the need arise.

    It was at the right pace for me as anything remotely mathematical can induce an undercurrent of anxiety for me and cause befuddlement and an inability to take it in.

    Im from an era when it was apparently acceptable for teachers to mete out physical violence and I had at least 2 maths teachers who did so.

    I have already used the method shown in the video. I found it direct to the point and is the most rapid way of doing an accurate ellipse that I have seen.
