When working from a photo the standard method is “squaring up”.
This involves drawing square grid on the source image and destination paper, the grids are then used as guides to transfer the information.
This is a tried-and-tested method and can be used to scale images up, by making the squares large on the destination larger.
Using squaring up does leave you with a lot of line to erase, so if you have a printer you could try the method I use.
First you need to print the image the actual size you wish your drawing to be.
Once you have your image you poke small holes in it to mark out the key points in the image; eyes, mouth, jaw and hair lines, etc.
