i added the jaw box onto the cranium mass with the first sphere & ellipse activity;
with the last post i questioned on the ellipse, mau gave the idea of deconstructing a face with an extreme angle to see how the ellipse ended up with the sphere. it actually does still hold true that its 2/3rds of the spheres height, the degree of the ellipse just gets squished down alot however the width of the ellipse never changes. I don't really know how i skipped on this however now i know! i quickly put a stock picture onto the page to deconstruct, the blue lines indicate the the size of the ellipse. (the deconstruction might not be the best sorry)
Aside from the whole ellipse problem, this exercise was alot harder than it seemed. sometimes i'd end up messing up my ellipses and others i'd end up flattening the sphere out. I didn't actually indicate all the feature placements on all the spheres since i ended up getting lazy. either way there are still alot of mistakes so i will practice my spheres!
