/ic/, I've been drawing for 2 years now and am fairly comfortable sketching all but the head. I feel that I understand the loomis approach, although I can't always find the hairline with accuracy, which botches my proportions entirely. I've tried starting with a head and jaw already defined, but then I have trouble locating the brow line correctly. My problem is finding a reliable anchor from which I can confidently plot out my proportions. As it stands now, I make mistakes far too often.
Those of you who have mastered portraits and proportions, how do you handle this?

Remember, this thread is only a place to execute muh styles and to draw animu/cartoons for fun. This should be supplementary to your art studies. Make sure you're drawing real figures and practicing anatomy/proportions, gestures, and lighting because that knowledge is what will make all your art better.
The drawthread and sketchthread have to mountains of resources you could scan through. Don't get in obsessed in looking for "the perfect method of learning" and remember to just draw. Also, don't get stuck in learning with one artist as well - make everyone your teacher.
Keep calm and take it easy and remember, "You're here forever"
