Or whatever one should do first to learn how to draw people well.

I've always loved drawing people, mainly faces, but always took the shortcuts. I would trace refs, use bases, use grids, etc. I want to start over and be able to draw any type of body, in whatever pose I want. I am in my early twenties. I gave up on art for two years but I cant shake that feeling in my gut whenever I see great artwork. I have to get back.

So please if anyone has any advice, whats the best place to start? I am seriously even willing to put in a decade+ of practice to get something worth showing others.

Thanks guys.
First off thanks to those of you who have watching me and giving feedback on my work while I was gone.

I've been wayyyy to inactive on DA so i'm not sure how many of you will see this but it would be disrespectful If I didn't give everyone a heads up. 

I regret to inform you all that I will NOT upload any more of my usual artwork. My studies have become very time-consuming and I do not have enough time to devote to making art like I used to. TBH, I feel like my passion doesn't match my skill level in the digital art world and I don't feel fulfilled doing the type of work I have been trying so hard to do well. I do however have a new hobby in architectural visualization that feeds directly into my career path, allowing me to spend a good amount of time in that area. 

To put things in short, I won't be making digital art of people anymore, but will be working with 3d with architectural/building/geometric images.
Please feel free to remove me from your watchers list if this doesn't interest you.

I know that if I was watching someone and they suddenly started to post cat photos all day I'd be very disappointing at them for ruining my Deviation feed experience. 
Thanks for your feedback/time spent with me, it was incredibly helpful in my growth as an artist.
