Think of the side profile as an ellipse *LINK*

Dick Coers
Hold an ellipse template and site through to the side profile. Placing a piece of solid colored paper on the bed or behind the lathe helps a lot. For me, the challenge is removing enough material just off the profile. I think it's common to retain too much of the cylinder in that area. You might try using the shadow technique to cut to a pattern.
