Drawing Techniques- drawing from the cube

One thing I have found very helpful to get more dimension on a 2 dimensional surface is drawing from the cube.
 Start by drawing a cube-square or rectangle to create the illusion of 3 dimensions.  Then it is a matter of drawing a figure or object within this cube, pushing and pulling the object to create more dimension.
When I was first learning to draw everything seemed flat and did not seem to come forward.  This helped me tremendously to think about pulling forward the areas that are closest to me and pushing back the areas furthest from me.
