You should just start drawing whatever you want.
After a while you know your weakest point and then you can start studying.
But now for the start, just draw what you want.
Some figures from imagination, things laying in front of you or just some cool environment?
It's your life.
And don't think too much.
You start, by starting.
If you don't start, you are doing it wrong.
what ever you start drawing anything on the paper is artwork.
best suggest do some practicing on how to draw three shapes
'' circle , rectangle, triangle'' also lines '' e.g. simple lines, zig-zag
curve''. truce me all these my first things i start with '' and the main
idea by doing practice to how make your hand draw with your brain
for example if you want to draw tree the basic tree start with two strait lines
and semi-circle like zig-zag on the top , son like circle .
start with these ideas and then after less than month i expect from you
to draw and share those ideas with us.
good luck and i hope that hepping you to get a good knowledge about art.

I just drew this ... I wonder if this is good enough for a 2 month beginner like me ?

What do you mean by construction drawing ? I think I should do eye , nose , and mouth studies , because I'm really bad at those ... And I really don't know whats construction drawing , so please give me some advice ...
Oh , and what are some other things other than construction work , that i can work on ?
I think the main frustration isn't where to start - everyone with an interest in art has already started in some way - it's, for me, when to move on. It's all well and good to tell someone what to do to begin with but after they've drawn a thousand triangles and lines using the whole arm it's hard to see how that relates to the eventual goal of being good.
Best advice, IMO, is what Silwynar and qlotzan said.
Construction drawing is when you build your figure/object out of basic shapes first before moving onto the details. Helps give your subjects more solidity and can help when you are trying to tackle tricky things like perspective.
here is an example

"This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville
Ohkay guys , I will work hard
Thanks for the advice ^^
