A good start.  Why don't you down load some of the free drawing books on this site.  They have a lot of tips and instructions that will help you.  Keep it up.

hello  and welcome! Its always so great to see new artist and their perception on things! I am still kind of new too! i sketched a little for years, but just last august started oil painting and Love it! I think you have a great start here. sketching for me is one of the hardest things because if there is a shadow you have to color it in with a fine piece of lead. but i have seen some awesowe works that people can do with them so be encouraged and keep at it.

a few things i might suggest is:

1.  that when you are drawing a nose for instants don't just draw a nose. really look at the nose and disect all of the shapes that are in that nose. because what a lot of new sketchers (and I was one of them) do is they skets the basic outline of a nose. but they don't see the details or know how to convey what they see.

2. is shadow and light. having a better understanding of shadowing will help you get the results you are wanting with your art. like i said its not the most easiest at first but with practise you will get it!

 

 Im going to try to upload my one of my first portrait sketches i ever did. I will warn you its not pretty, the eyes are a little slanty and lopsided i think but as a whole you will see what i mean about the shapes and using shadows to create the appearance of a real nose actually being there.

Well,

The most important at the beginning is to master the proportions.
