I can't draw for shit and I would really like to learn to do I can produce my weird visions and psychedelic thoughts.

I downloaded drawing with the right side of the brain.I got up to the part where you draw the picture upside down then my computer died.

Now I only have my phone so I want to actually go out and buy some books.

Any way on top of that even that book seemed a little advanced for me.I found drawbox but id still rather have a physical book.

Pic related it's my drawing from that book.(looks barely anything like me)

I would suggest just drawing whenever and whatever you can. People assume it's a skill you're born with. Maybe that's true I dunno but for most people it seems to just be a matter of practice, practice, practice. Actual classes and personal input will be much better than a book but if that's not possible just draw. Keep on drawing and don't let that shitty voice in your head say it's no good.

I will and I try to but what are some good exercises to start with ?
I'm thinking I should start with proportion first.

i have so many ideas but it's frustrating when I draw them and it looks like total shit

true this, just draw a bunch. figure drawing classes are great practice.
i used to go to the library downtown and get a bunch of field guides and nature illustrations and stuff and just try to copy a bunch of it for hours.
just keep on drawin' mane.

also, check out your local thrift shop for design books. I much prefer looking at line drawings for inspiration over technical 'how to draw' books or full-color paintings/photos. I have a few of these Dover publishing books, and they're all really great to get for ideas. at least for my style of drawing.
