    What I usually do is make a "skeleton" first, then the body, then the clothing over that. From there, I clean everything up and add finer details. So, I guess I do the outline first then add details. However, I don't think there's anything necessarily "wrong" with using the other method you've suggested, it's a matter of personal taste more than anything.

    I usually draw from top to bottom. That's only because I like to draw the head first.

    I always do the face first,.If I screw up the face, there's point in going on. That's just how I do it.

    I normally skeleton it out and work on the face. Then I go to torso, arms, legs and feet. I do the hands last.

    well, when i draw i start out with an outline of head then the body and last the hair.

    For your question i would do top to bottum. you should try both to see which is better.

    i'll tend to work all over the place, after tosssing together a few thumbnail sketches to get a rough idea of what i want to do...

    if i start with the head with no plan of what the rest would be like, it doesn't really get past that...
    *take that, guy who ganked my screename on the last forum 3 days before i joined!!
