First I'll start to draw a bunch abnormal circles, as below:

Then use those shapes as the foundation:
To make these rough sketches:

Here's another example, just a little more dissected:)

Draw some shapes:



Draw the accents for the face (nose, hair, ears, etc...)



Ending up with this final result:
This process I find helps to keep you loose and also keeps it fun as you discover shapes you wouldn't normally create.  Because your focus is on the specific details from the beginning then looking at the overall design:)

I've been using this method more when drawing live caricatures, and find that it makes the compositions of two or people much more interesting. Great post! Thanks for sharing!
