    Hey! Welcome to the forum. I'm a beginner myself so I can't offer much in terms of a critique but if your looking for some books to start off with try these. Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing From Life and any books by Andrew Loomis. The Atlas of Human Anatomy For the Artist by Peck is a good one too. Those should start you off on the right track.

    This one is just from a tutorial, actually. I don't have a sphere handy at the moment...

    welcome to team sketchbook
    You seem to have an idea of where to start, personally I think perspective is one of the best things you can focus on early on, especially on a project like skull drawings.
    Taking the time to slow down and really work out the angles of those cheak pones and eye sockets will really pay off in the long run.
    we all get the urge to do quicker studies, getting more drawings done can feel more productive. but often 1 drawing that takes 3-6 hours will be worth 50 or 60, shorter sessions.
    in first year of college it was not unusual to spend 12-15 hours on an old boot, really focusing on perspective and value.

    The most important thing is to just be stubborn enough to keep going. It's the most valuable tool an artist has.

    Happy sketching!

    It's awesome how you draw whatever happens to be in the room. You'll never know when you'll need to draw a fire extinguisher from your imagination!
