ive always had problems sketching, and usualy i get around those problems when shading or coloring right over the sketch(but it gets messy when i find out i did something wrong). lately i found out when adding vertexes to my sketches it make all the difference in the world for me. i think in geometry when i paint.
with my strenght or disability is there anything i should know, or someway of learning that works best for me . i could not find any threads about this, or anything on google.

here is some of my work:

also check my attatchemnts, it shows how my sketches look, one with Vertexes and one without. and also how the one without vertexes ends up so different when painted.

Actually thinking in terms of vertices / geometry is just another way of thinking in terms of cross contour - I put up a very basic tutorial on cross contour and its relationship to 3d modeling terms a while back, here:

TUTORIAL/Exercise - Cross Contour Drawing - (Nude 3D Model by Mashru)

I think that's what you're asking.
