I think that people that can draw circles and lines near perfect, are naturally good at drawing. This is how I know I suck at drawing and should stick to photography.

Tool is a class all its own, I definately agree with you there, but then again... what does Tool, let alone Maynard have to do with perfect circles?  thumbsup.gif

Actually, Friday I went to my folks house and took my micrometer with me. Yes, my dad can draw a perfect circle! His are small ranging in size from 8mm's to 10mm's. when I measured them, they were perfect as far as I could tell.

He used a .05 technical pen, and I measured the inside line in about 20 places, I didn't have to move the slide once.

Dad is far from crazy or insane. He's just a quiet sweet guy who was trained in drafting and draws circles when he's on the phone or when my mother is yapping at him non-stop. laugh.gif

Well it kinda make sense that you would go insane cuz maybe you've tried it many times that it took you years. And you wasted half of your life cuz u were trying to draw some circle in perfect form.

Personally I believe you have it backwards; you would go crazy trying to draw a perfect circle.
