Navi, When I was in college, an instructor told my class to start with the eyes first. He was a professional illustrator, and specialized in drawing people. This was fine by me because thats were I always started anyways. But I agree with you that you should start were ever you feel comfortable. There really are no rules for drawings. They're all just someone's opinion.
Did your art teacher ever give a reason why they thought the nose was the correct place to start?

Brendan, does your friend still have his job?

Yeah, I think you should be able to start anywhere on a drawing. There's no wrong or right way to do art.

But I do agree with Brendan. Chances are, you are going to be listening to people tell you what to do for the rest of your life. Don't buck the boss.

I think that's a stupid rule though. A long time ago I started with the eyes because I knew how important they were. But now I feel confident enough that I won't screw them up too horribly and I start with the hair.

One reason I'm not taking another art class in my life again is because I've had enough with my current teacher.
I hate being told what to do, especially on the fields I'm good at.
You start from wherever you feel like.
Although Étienne started his current work from nose, it's also my first time seen anybody who does that, his explanation is that, for that PARTICULAR picture, the nose has more tone variation, so it's wiser to start from it.
I'm not a good artist, but i'm good at pretending to be one...
