Unlike an ellipse that you draw with pixels, you can scale the path ellipse down really tiny, then scale it up really big. And it doesn't lose any of its mathematical perfection. So we're going to use the ellipsis in the ellipse bank to add the ellipsis to our castle by moving and scaling them into position wherever they're needed.

Let's do this big dome first. Look horizontally at our ellipse bank and figure out which percentage matches that height above the horizon. The 62% ellipse is at the right height, so select that ellipse, Copy and Paste it into place and slide it horizontally to the part of the dome where you need it. Zoom in then Press Cmd or Ctrl+T to transform it to match word is going on the dome. When scaling the ellipse hold down the Shift key so that it transforms uniformly.
