I'm shit at proportioning. Can anyone help? I know the outside of the nostrils are supposed to line up with the inside out your eyes, but are there any tips anyone can share? This was a self portrait. Sorry for the poor quality i had to upload the picture off my phone.

Well here's this, it might help.

As a general rule, the eyes are usually set in the vertical middle of the head (directly between the top of the head and the chin). The corners of the mouth should usually line up with the centers of the eyes, and the tops of the ears should be horizontally level with them. The eyes should also have enough space to fit a third eye between them. Also, and unrelated to proportions, never underestimate the effect of adding eyelids and shading under the eyes and eyebrows (unless you have no eyebrow ridge).

I did have shading there, but it didn't show up in the picture. Thanks for the help.

Another of my drawings. The gun and hand were supposed to be way smaller. This one isn't shaded as well becasue I drew it about a year ago.

Doesn't seem like you drew helplines. You should draw like the guy did in the picture. That way you can draw better on scale and more precisely.

You got lucky with the gun in this one. If you hadn't told me it was supposed to be smaller, I'd have thought it was just closer towards me, in the foreground.

It's always good to at least draw some thin, stick-figure guidelines before you do any heavy detail.
