The thing with construction is everything is a 3D shape. When you draw a circle, it turns into a sphere.

Here's the trick. You have to see the shape as 3D after you draw it. When you draw your guidelines in, you are not drawing them on a circle, you are drawing them on a sphere. It's not really something you can teach, but if you practice enough you can learn it.

You really have to practice. I was bad and I practiced a ton for like 3 years and then I got good.

It's a never ending process.

If you send me a drawing I will critique it: elanarpritchard (at)
