Learning to draw

I haven't posted in a while, so I thought I'd post part of a discussion I had with someone today. My friend at work was asking me how to "learn" how to draw. My suggestion was to start with a character where you can clearly see the construction. I told him to spend a month or so every day just drawing one character. Something like the examples below:

Later, artist found clever graphic ways to hide the construction, but if you've learned the earlier style, you can find it under the surface. That's why I recommended not starting with something like this. It's harder to find the construction.
