    How do you start up your drawings of people? A question for Pencilers.

    Hey Guys. Wasn't sure where to post this, but I think this is the right place since it says "Anything Goes" here.

    Anyways, for year's I have been starting off my art with of course a stick figure with everything laid into place drawing in the head first. And I watched a few tutorial videos, 1 by Jim Lee, and the other by Adam Hughes. And I notice they too first start their drawings by drawing the head in first before anything else.

    However, I have been working with Burne Hogarth books lately that I've had sitting around. And according to the book you are suppose to 1st draw the torso, 2nd the pelvis/legs/feet, 3rd the arms/hands, and 4th the head as the last thing.

    And when doing this excercise it just seems rather odd ya know? It made plenty of sense the way he wrote it out, but for some reason I'm having a problem changing how I draw my stuff. I almost always have the head started up first and then down to the torso, then the arms, then the pelvis, then legs, and then feet.

    So my question is... How do you guys start your people drawings?
