Where to Start
The basic principles I believe to be important when learning to draw is to study smart and doing that with active learning. These two videos/posts below explain what these concepts are and how you can apply them in the context of learning to draw anything.

If you're entirely new to drawing, you might need to learn the very basic concepts before starting with figure drawing (the first topic in my How to Study series). There are two resources I really like that promote active learning, so I couldn't recommend them more.
Drawabox was vital to getting me into the right mindset to study and learn art step by step. Learn the basics of form and perspective and so much more. There's so much knowledge shared by Uncomfortable, I'm sure you'll learn something knew even if you're not a beginner.
Brad's Art School is a channel on Youtube about the basics of drawing. This one is more lighthearted and simple, so it might be a good way to start. I still think you should check Drawabox though because nothing can replace all you can learn there.
