Making the transition from drawing circles to drawing ovals is pretty simple but when you need to go from drawing ovals to drawing rotated ovals, you might run into a few problems. This article documents some of the pitfalls I encountered and presents them as a learning experience. If you just want some solid code to draw rotated ovals or twisted ellipses, skip ahead to the end of the article and copy the last block of code. If you think you might gain from my experience then by all means… read on.
