First sketch of a girl

Trying to sketch a girl's face. Hmm. I need to figure out what makes a girl look like a girl without going into stereotypical exaggerated big eyes and small round face.

A friend on Facebook suggested that I need to spend time drawing faces of actual girls to get a sense of what I actually see as opposed to what I think I see, so that later when I sketch, I have a sense of contours and such. Sounds like a plan to me.

As a quick note, I have no idea whether my use of the words sketch and draw are correct. I think of a sketch as more representational and without a model, while a drawing is (intended to be) more accurate, less representational and uses a model of some sort.

Also, drawing class today!
