    interesting question. other than perhaps in the rare instance where an intricately intertwined layout requires 'backing out' a tiny part of the design from the center of the scroll, it would never occur to me to draw- or cut- the internal details of a scroll from anywhere but its origin, or what you've labeled the 'end'...

    anyone care to comment on the pros & cons of each way?

    I start at what you call the "end" but for me it is the start

    I start at the end and work in. I find this helpful in controling back ground depth, like others I don't know why it just seemed the way to go.

    I am practising scrolls for a while and always I started at the end but I don't know why I did always at the end. I never read or no one told me to do like this. Which one is the correct way?

    I work from the end and always in the counter clock wise direction,I have alway had a problem cutting the back bone and the inside elements of the scroll in the clock wise direction.When cutting the clock wise scrolls I cut it from the inside out in the counter clock wise direction,yet.J.J.
