    I understand why you posted stroking a path but I don't really think he can do this traditionally when I read into his post. He would've asked how to make an ellipse in photoshop instead of asking how to do this in perspective like Feng.

    If you darken the image you can see a lot of very light guide lines, that certainly looks to me like he plotted perspective. I'm sure he must have used the information from plotting the perspective to indicate where the circles should go, but I doubt they were hand drawn that way as they are very precise and uniform.

    My question is why would you bother? Perspective plotting may not be hard once you understand it, but it's still tedious compared to making a simple 3D model to give you the proper guides.

    It doesn't look like those are freehand, so probably just plotted out perspective then dropped in elliptical selections and applied a stroke or whatever the equivalent of that may be in painter/whatever other program.

    Btw, where did you find that image? I'm a big fan of his and have a lot of his work saved as inspiration to learn from but have never seen that one before; tineye doesn't return any results.

    edit Err it seems like the question has been answered already and this is an oldish thread..

    Why? you should take a long hard look at scott robertson's work when you ask that question.

    Don't wake me for the end of the world unless it has very good special effects

    My answer to cerealist's question would be that in photoshop you can use transform-> distort on a circle made with the elliptical marquee tool.
