@ossobuco,
You are thirteen and want to know everything I might know about drawing after a lifetime of drawing.?

Forget that.

Just draw and look and then draw again, and then look again, and draw again. Keep doing that.

@ossobuco,
True. Although as i recall, I learned to draw horses and later human figures from books that taught how to break down the underlying shapes. A book by a spiderman comic artist taught me about foreshortening. I remember I went a long way with a drawing pad copying the drawings in that book. Decades later, that's still part of how I draw.

Faces I learned to draw by doodling them incessantly. A physics teacher once caught me in the middle of class doodling charicatures of him. He was pleased, though.

When it comes to painting faces, there are a couple of angles on catching a likeness... one I still use is noticing the space between the pupils of the eyes, then notice the point right at the middle of the base of the nose. Now you have a triangle. Get that triangle right and you've pretty much got the likeness.
