But how am I supposed to know which ones you prefer? Make a picture like the first 2 posts and stop discussing. I just want to know how will you draw general ellipses of the desired size. End. Dot.Images not supported in quotes
The reason we're discussing is because we are confused by this, it feels like a weird thing to be fixating on when there are better avenues for improvement and the goal is still somewhat unclear. Are you trying to figure out anti-aliasing? are you trying to see how other people approach... a basic shape?
There's only going to be maybe three or four highly-situational ways to do what you've described here, and doing it serves no real purpose except as an incredibly basic practice gesture that would likely be better spent just doing a whole drawing.
Like eishiya said, it's the context of the shape you work from.
That's not a basic shape, it's a square-root based shape. Also the picture below shows various pictures of different fake "users" making circles from 1x1 to 6x6, which is what I would like to see from users if it was just circles 1x1 to 6x6:
Image 1 and image 2 were made by one user, but in one post. Image 3 was made by another user who prefers circles with less pixels. Image 4 was made by some person who likes anti-aliasing. Image 5 was the same idea as Image 3 - that's valid. Copying it is also valid. Image 6 was made by person who cares about area and not symmetry. So I suggest you to make an image like the one of beginning to check which type of circle you like.
Look at this image:
Your task is, in the places of my ellipses, draw your ellipses instead, and use your own title in place of my one.
