When I'm doing a drawing from a photograph I always do the grid method. It's the best way for me to get proportions right. Make a grid of half to one-inch squares on the photo and then lightly draw a grid on my drawing paper. The squares on the paper can be any size as long as they're square. Then, I only have to worry about drawing what I see in each square on the photo.
