Hey guys I had a question, Does making 3d art help me draw better?
Thanks in advance!

It won't make you better in that, you won't be drawing as much as sculpting/dividing depending on what software you're gonna be using.
so... yes and no.

Thanks for the answer. I'll keep drawing then. I have another question, what should I draw to help me improve my skills? Should I do anatomy studies, or just draw whatever comes to my mind? Should I make a sketchbook even if I not very good at drawing?

"...what should I draw to help me improve my skills? Should I do anatomy studies, or just draw whatever comes to my mind?"
Both. Anatomy is a major aid to anyone attempting to enter the field of art. Drawing what comes to mind, as with any other use of one's imagination, is definitely important to developing "creativity" or the ability to "see" that which doesn't exist.
"Should I make a sketchbook even if I not very good at drawing?"
You should make a sketchbook ESPECIALLY if you're not very good at drawing, and use it/post as often as possible. It's the proper way to solve problems, gain/improve hand skills, and get advice on any items that cause you a problem.

Does 3D help your 2D skills?
Yes! Yes, yes, yes.
I took a sculpture class earlier this year and saw a huge boost in my drawing confidence (and my ability to convey 3d form). Maybe not if you're just starting out (since nailing observational drawing and proportions is key early on), but sculpture can be hugely beneficial for 2d artists.

Hey guys I have had an artist block for several days now and I can't seem to draw anything this days. Anything you might want to suggest for me to stop this mental block?
Some other things I wanted to say:
Changed the tittle and bought some books but the books you guys suggested weren't on borders. I'll keep saving for them and buy them later. I bought how to draw comics, I got this book because it had some anatomy in it and some perspective too so I though it could help me in some way and I also bought The Basics of Drawing, I bought this one well because I need to learn the basics to be a good artist right?
I also wanted to ask something. How do I do proper art studies? I mean like what studies help me improve my art skills and why do they do that and how I need to do them to get the most out of them. Thanks in advance!

Suck it up and keep drawing, even professionals have artist's block but they deal with it and finish the job. If you're going to stop drawing every time you get artist's block, then you're going to have a hard time becoming a professional artist.

There is no right way to study art. You can sit down, with a library of 'how to' books, read all day and night. And learn nothing.
Study by looking at other art and real life, and try to understand/figure out how to create that.
My advice to you, is not to create a 'correct' picture. Create something that looks visually right. Do that, and you won't be disappointed. Be your biggest critic, and don't be afraid to erase.
