So I've been drawing people faces since I was 10. I'm pretty good at drawing an eye. But because I taught myself how to draw it's really difficult for me to draw the way I probably should draw. By outlining where all the feature go on the face and so forth.

I've actually tried to make myself draw the conventional way. I drew by outlining everything before going in for the details and my drawings weren't very good. I did this every night for about a week.

I said "screw it" the other night and started from the eyes and drew...rather well. So I'm wondering does everyone follow a certain outline for drawing the head or do you have your own way of doing it?

Ultimately I think if I had grown up drawing the other way (Andrew Loomis approach?) then I wouldn't have so much trouble with proportions.

I tried drawing a portrait again tonight doing it my way and while the eyes looked splendid the rest of it fell apart. There's got to be a good inbetween method for me!
