    perspective, perspective, perspective
    and remember, 3d does not mean good, it means 3d.

    here's what I sugest you do.
    Start working on 3D with 90' angles. You know..?
    A bunch of blocks and lines. Then you can skip the shading
    and work with 4 tones of grey (for the sake of practice).
    It's much easier to get a grasp of 3D on a solid plane (think Neck CNS).
    Every 3D curve is all about the shading, so skip it.

    here's an example of some shit I did on the computer a few years ago.

    ^ wild man !

    see what I mean about the simple 3D ?
    The above flicks use what I call "fluid 3D"
    the first pic mostly, is all about the shading.

    so if you're just breaking into the thrid demention...

    yeah man, do block letters and just put 3D at one angle and figure out how it all works. Look at a cereal box or something to figure out how the light hits one object at different angles. Then apply that to you art. Its more about visualization that what you're probably used to with bombing. Just keep practicing
