Since I’m new here, it would be polite to say hello to people, so as promised in the first half of the sentence - hello.
Intro: I’ve been drawing as a hobby for a while now, had some experience in 3d modeling as well (been making maps way back for Serious Sam 2nd encounter, if someone can relate).
Since I have extra time to spare, recently decided to get deeper into drawing. To be more precise - I want to understand drawing and the things I draw, hence why it goes hand to hand with 3d modeling and I decided to get involved in blender as well.
The problem: After walking the road for a while in pursuit of my goal, and thinking that I am improving, it turned out I am not. To my regret, I kept resorting to drawing/modeling using associations (In other words: guessing how it should look instead of how knowing really is. Or lets say I have front/side/back view of an object. I can assemble it in 3d software but can’t draw it, since my brain still doesn’t comprehend it in 3d space and keeps clinging to associations). And that is rather upseting.
Obvious solution: Practise some more.
So, the reason I am here is to ask if someone knows a shortcut or good starting point in form of good book or an online tutorial that helps with the understanding of the subject (object in 3d space), since I am clearly lacking something.
