    Good books about basics

    Hello! Im know there are probably hundreds of posts like mine but i couldn't find what i was searching for.

    I'm trying to learn perspective(i want to learn to do it free-hand - witout making guides all the time) and how to draw forms, shapes - how to put them in different perspective, and shadowing them.


    What good books (or some tutorials) would you suggest?

    Please do not misunderstand. I am saying that books provided above didn't realy write about how to rotate rounded forms, volumes.

    I'm sorry, i misunderstood perspective a little bit. What i was meaning to say is "[B]What good books there are about rotating different forms,objects,shapes(Cube, ball(circle), planes)?[
    Re-quoting your original statement. Not only that. Someone did say check out the Loomis books.

    Here is why

    Rotation isn't exactly independent of perspective.

    Spheres in perspective are just really, really tough. I mean, how do you know if you got it right?
    What would Caravaggio do?
