Okay! These took way too long to get to, my apologies!I decided to tackle these at the same time, since they’re both head/face related.
First, let’s talk about the shape of the head.
People naturally focus on the eyes and face before the rest of the body.Because of the point of interest, young artists tend to make the face far too big.
Don’t forget to draw the skull!
The face actually only takes up a fourth of the entire head. Half of the height, and even less than half of the width.

Within that small fourth of the head are other proportion guides, but remember to add variation once you’re comfortable with the standard proportions.
Here are some more links that may help:

Now some tips for drawing the nose:
Remembering where the planes of the nose go will be your greatest ally.Breaking the shape down to basic blocks will help you place shadows, and then it’s just a matter of softening the shapes so it doesn’t look like an Easter Island head.

Using the basic planes, you can add variation and depth to them.
