Pay attention to size and width of things!

1. Identify all major planes. (Particularly 'negative spaces' which are areas you omit, that you don't draw.)

2. Mark placement for main features.

3. Draw from the 'center' outwards. (For portraits, start with the nose first, and NOT the eyes. For full body, start with the torso first.)

These tips generally work for drawing all kinds of things so I included a panda 😅.

Here's my old tutorial for reference. It was too long! Same principles though of planes, general shapes, and proportions.
