Subject title: Form,Constroction and Proportions

Hi there.
so i started drawing around a year and i think i got the basic fundamentals under my head.
I have no problem drawing simple object from life, drawing forms like cubes and cylinders or drawing in perspective.
But every time i try to draw something more complicated from my head i struggel.

So i wanted to ask you guys what are good exercises you could recommend for becoming better with construction, form, perspective and proportions.

Maybe look at some Proko stuff? You can break any complex form into simple things like cubes, cylinders, etc. But you have to be patient and know that as you draw more and more, your eye---your ability to see---will also get better.

I guess for exercises I would say maybe just go draw from life if you want to improve in those foundationy things you mentioned. Which is not bad advice per say but it's also not what I did so I can't promise it would actually work. I'm pretty sure drawing something will pretty much always help you improve at drawing in one way or another.

Just draw whatever you want for fun---then think about what foundations you would need to apply to those things to make them even more representative of you---study those foundations in small pieces---and apply them immediately to the things you like. And repeat that process many times over.

Or ignore me---that's fine too. Do whatever you want---art is supposed to be good for you, not make you miserable.
