First, draw a happy face. This expression can be achieved with the mouth drawn using a curved upward line.
First, check the spacing in between your eyes. If your eyes are too close, it may look disfigured. If you eyes are too far, that’ll have the same affect. Next, check how big your eyes are. You want them small enough that you could one in between the two eyes.
You can also add more detail, like highlights, reflected light, pupils, and different colors. If your character is female, try to make her eyes wider than a male’s would be.

Make sure your character has a thicker face and more masculine features than a girl would. You can also design the clothing and hair to reflect male features rather than female.
Draw the face in a sweeping motion. You can choose any expression for your anime boy, but most anime boys have sharp, defined features, with eyes slanting more at an angle towards the middle of the face.
Draw a horizontal line across the middle of the face for the placement of the eyes, and a line vertically down the middle for the nose. The example here uses a normal smile and short, unkempt hair. As you did for the body, darken the lines you want to keep for the little details.
Add a bridge and a tip to the nose. Longer strands at the base of the neck are very popular in recent animes.
Begin by drawing the eyes in a upwards motion. Then, once near to the destination end of the character’s eyebrow, draw a short line downwards to give the impression of “evil” intent.
Draw the neck and shoulders. You can add details like the collar bones to make your character more realistic.
Ink the drawing with a black, sharp pen (make sure it’s fine point but defined). Remember to add fine details like the pupils of his eyes. Add some shadows in his hair to give it volume and depth. Broaden the shoulders a bit to make him more masculine.

You can use any type of pencil you like, but try to keep the tip sharpened to a fine point. Consider using a variety of pencils, such as softer ones (2B, 4B, 6B, etc) for darker lines, and harder ones (2H, 4H, 6H, etc) for lighter lines.

If by awkward you mean having a strange face shape, I suggest using some guidelines like having a box around the head to keep it in proportion.
