Tip #1

he first tip is relatively easy. Just use a cross to set the base for your oval shape. The advantage of using a cross is that you can control the size of your shape. It can also be erased easily without leaving any traces around the shape!

Tip #2

The second tip is similar to the first one, but instead of using a cross as a reference, you can use a rectangle and draw the oval shape inside. Unlike the method using the cross, if you don't erase the rectangle properly, it might leave some traces around your shape.





Tip #3

Finally, you can just use a circle as a reference and draw your oval shape around it. This technique is not as efficient as the other two mentioned above, but it can help you draw an oval shape without using any references.
