Thanks , it relieved me soo much as I was beginning to think that i was not able to grasp the constructional knowledge that drawabox provide.

If I understand you correctly it's about the matter of time. As I continue to deconstruct the subjects being taught and with gaining the knowledge of the subjects I like , I might/ will be able to deconstruct other things like the Helmet (it is highly unlikely I would draw helmets in my drawing)

Am I understand it right or there is something out of order in my mind!!!!

Yes, exactly! The basic principle is for you to develop your spatial reasoning, right? so it's not focusing exactly on the technicalities but on how you can start seeing and undertanding the objects in 3D so you can rotate, create, design your own. And this takes time and effort but does not take away the fun and thrill of developing your skills too. Best of luck with your studies and creations (^_^)

I was struggling a little with perspective so I stopped for a while and started watching videos like: the history of houses, architecture and this was great for me because I never thought studying these things could be so much fun and it all can contribute to my overall appreciation of different forms of art as well.

Hi do you still know which videos that were?

I struggle a lot with perspective and with drawing 3d.

Felt quite stuck lately and you seem to know some good recourses.

Oh no, I just type this on YouTube and watch the ones that I feel appeal more to my need at the time, but I can share some of the ones I watched:

I like the way this guy explains perspective

Scott Robertson is just phenomenal (this one is a little unrelated to perspective but I think it will help you boost your fun and creativity in your journey as you see the world)

This one I recommend doing the exercises along, pausing and taking it easy

I think we tend to get very technical and take all the fun out of the things we study

Trent is cool because I also love RPG style of environment

Oh and also following along tutorials like this one in the beginning can really help you build mileage and get the hang of painting in general

There is a book called "Perspective Made Easy", by E.R. Norling, that is gold to learn the basics.

Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
