Below are step by step images so you have better understanding of how the process goes while watching the drawing video tutorial. Step one, I just draw basic head shape with more width on the bottom because I am looking for a unique looking face. Then triangular shapes for eyes, slightly big nose. The tip of the nose is usually half way between eye level and the bottom of the chin. Then mouth is approximately half way between bottom of the nose and the chin though it can be closer to the nose. Step two, I add some darker value onto both eye sockets, under the nose, and below the lower lip just right above the ball of chin. Step three, I increase the darkness of value to overall face. In four, I start to working on detail within the darker value and outside on the lighter gray around his face. In five, as you can see it is almost there, face with some emotion.
