Now that we've learned about ellipses, it's…time to put that knowledge into use, and…add ellipses to all of the round objects, the towers and domes, in our scene.…However, we need to determine the…percentage of the ellipses we'll use throughout.…To do that, we'll determine the correct percentage or…height for one ellipse high up in our picture…>> And base all of the ellipses off of that.…I call this…ellipse, the Master ellipse. You could use a high percentage…like this one as your master, or a flatter, low percentage one like this.…
And get very different results.…But, which one is correct for this picture?…There are two ways to figure out the master ellipse,…one that is completely accurate but involves some rather complex perspective.…And an easier one…that just involves intelligent guessing,…I'm going to show the advanced way first If you're not interested into delving…into complex perspective and trust me, we'll…be getting into some pretty deep waters.…Skip forward two videos to the building and ellipse…
