A serious problem:

How do I "scale" my sketches, drawings etc? While drawing from life I just copy the size of whatever I draw to be exactly as big as I see it (or my brain thinks it sees the object). When I try to scale I get weird distortions like vertically it's super thin while horizontally it's still the same as in life. The proportions are wrong.

I reached the level where my awful drawings could be just cutouts of photos taken at a position I did sit or look from.

Proportions are proportional, aka ratios. Size of your lines shouldn’t matter.
Your brain might be broke..?

By measuring. You need to proportionally transfer the size from real life to your sketchbook.

Any good guides to measuring methods? For people with broken brain, like >>3762632 suggested. I can't do the grid method well, either. I just subconsciously copy stuff on paper.
