Ok newbie... There are only ten steps you'll need to do:

1. Draw a lot. Train your eyes!

2. Read books some of this stuff (techniques, beginners guides are good stuff). Go to the library first before trying to purchase (You can memorize everything in it for two weeks anyway, if you draw a lot that is).

3. Draw a lot. Train your mind.

4. Ask a lot. That's why this forum is here, right?

5. Draw a lot. Make doodles.

6. If you got some problems with something in particular, go into detail with it. Draw only that "thing" for about 10 pages. Should work fine.

7. Draw a lot. Make doodles when you don't feel like it.

8. If you really wan't to do this stuff, you should: eat, sleep, think, shit with only one thing in mind: never give up! It will always take time, but it will work... eventually.

9. Draw a lot, and then some!

10. Use the pencil, ok?


About the specific heads, faces and hair... it's difficult to explain but read some books about it and make a lot of portraits ok?

And yeah: Good luck dude.

Cheers!

To recommend a book on the basics of drawing (mostly heads). Drawing on the right side of the brain. It's really good for beginners. And it looks at drawing from a different angle.

That's why the forum is here! To receive advices from other people

Want my advice : Draw a lot!
(I hope you didn't already received that advice like 7 times before cause I would feel like a bad advisor.)

One thing I've noticed that help me realise proportions and general drawing of people is going through some Anime tutorials. It's a basic art style, but for me it made me see different ways to do stuff I jsut couldn't master before. The site I'll plug is Muto Anime. He's got some great tutorials that'll lead you through the whole process:

My five cents. @:-)
