You *can* draw, just maybe not in the way you intend to. Drawing is just
lines on a surface that try to evoke or represent something.
Also what and why is it that you want to draw? So far all we know is
that you "can't draw" and people have responded in equally vague ways
by linking resources that have worked for them (such as drawabox) that
they think would probably help you too. I do think drawabox is a great
site for learning structure and correct perspective, but note that I
specifically said "for learning structure and correct perspective".
If you want a result, you need to know what that result is. Else you'll
spend more time than you need to by following methods, hoping that you'll
reach.. something? Like climbing a ladder that's leaning against the
If you *do* know what you want to draw, then I would highly recommend
browsing through Marshall Vandruff's Reviews & Recommendations:https://marshallart.com/HOME/reviews
There are a *lot* of very solid books on there, most of which come with
some very insightful comments from Marshall himself on what and why
a book is great. It's mostly about learning to draw in the classical
sense (e.g. Rembrandt) but there's also general books on development &
If this is all a bit much to grasp, there are some very simple things that
you can do to significantly improve your drawing abilities no matter what
it is you want to draw; Learn & practice drawing straight lines, basic
shapes (circles, squares, etc.), and then basic forms (balls, cubes,
cylinders, cones, etc.). If you can draw these basic shapes *really*
well, the rest will fall into place. This is one of the things taught
in Scott Robertson's "How To Draw" book, among many others.
Note that I said "learn & practice". Drawing, at least in the classical
sense, requires a lot of repetition. It's about building muscle memory and
intuition. Which reminds me, do not treat a year as a long time. Learning
a skill like drawing, or any skill for that matter, takes several years to
reach basic competency & proficiency and a lifetime to reach mastery.
You need to have a strong desire to learn, to always hunger for more, to
a point where you never really stop learning, but always improving. Which
is why it's important to have it as a habit that's sustainable, otherwise
you'll burn yourself out and fall flat on the ground while snapping your
pencil in two.
So let me ask you again, what and why is it that you want to draw?
