Please Notice: Learning the principles of cubes and cylinders from the beginning is essential as it establishes the fundamental skills needed for realistic and accurate spatial representation in drawing. These foundational concepts provide a solid base for mastering more complex forms and perspectives, fostering a deeper understanding of three-dimensional artistry. 

When drawing portraits, incorporating them into cubes is a valuable technique to enhance perspective understanding. Placing portrait within geometric structures allows for a more nuanced exploration of angles and proportions, fostering a deeper comprehension of spatial relationships and contributing to the overall realism of the artwork.
