Measuring Via Eye Size

Basic head layout
There are few characteristics of a head that is relative to almost everyone, this similarity in measurements will be your guide if you are to construct a face when drawing a portrait.

The eyes are positioned below, above or right at the center of the head’s perfect-center level. It is usually aligned with the upper tip of the ear.
The head’s space above and below the eyes’ location are equal.
The nose wings are usually aligned with the tear ducts, and its nose ball is aligned with the ear lobes (this similarity changes depending on the person’s age as the ears grow bigger). 
Both tips of the mouth are nearly aligned with the center of both eyes.

Although you will surely encounter a person that has a little difference on these measurements, it would be easier for you to identify his or her unique proportion value if you have the knowledge about what is most usual. 

The familiarity to different angles of the head is essential when drawing faces.

Head shapes differ in every angle. The position of each facial feature gradually changes as the head makes a quarter turn. And as it turns further on one side, their sizes slightly change and the features reveal their unseen angles, thus, totally changing their shape. 

A head facing in a perfect front view would have two equal sides most of the time, while a head in a quarter angle view shows the outline of the nose bridge which cannot be portrayed perfectly when in front view. The lips would reveal its thickness as it loses the exposure of its further tip. And the further ear and eye will lose its exposure as the head turns further on the side.

These natural gradual adjustments happen when the head moves horizontally. 

Unlike horizontal movements, when a head moves in a diagonal direction it changes the diagonal thickness of the head dynamically, thus, the facial features follow.
Each facial feature comes closer together as the head leans further. The nostrils become totally exposed as the nose ball clearly establish its distance from the plane (face surface). 

The thickness of the lower lip can be easily conveyed as it overlaps the upper lip, and the eye shapes would appear flat.

When the head moves downwards, the nose (depending on its height) would overlap the lips, and the eyebrows (depending on its thickness) would slightly overlap the eyes. The height of the neck would be hidden as the top of the head becomes clearly conveyed, totally changing or rather hiding the face’s horizontal height.

The facial ridges of males are more defined and prominent compared to females, especially the nose bridge, Brow Bridge and the jaw line.

But there are few cases in which the shape of a man’s profile looks more feminine than usual or vice-versa. In this case, you have to rely on the facial features he or she have to clearly portray his or her gender, such as thick eyebrows or any facial hairs for men or pouty, glossy lips and long eyelashes for women.

Some people are lucky enough to get several job opportunities in their lifetime. Others are unlucky and get just a few job opportunities. Since you can never be sure of whether you’re one of the lucky or unlucky ones, you have to do everything you can to get a good job as soon as an opportunity arises. As soon as there is a vacant position in any firm, an advertisement will be placed on several platforms to invite qualified people to apply to this position. If you applied for the job and were shortlisted as a potential employee, the firm will go ahead and invite you to an interview. The interview will be the single most important determinant of whether you’re going to get that job or not. 

Throughout the world, companies shortlist several candidates before the best one can be selected to fill a vacant position. This means that you won’t be the only person being interviewed for that job. It is up to you to convince the interviewer(s) why they should hire you and not any of the other applicants to that position. You have to be highly distinguishable from all the others. 

There are several things that you can do before, during and after the interview so as to increase the probability of getting that job. Some of the factors that might influence whether you’ll get the job include your dressing code and grooming, first impression, qualifications and how well you answer questions asked by the interviewer. If you can control all these factors, then you can rest assured that the job is yours. This means that you have to be thoroughly prepared and know what to expect before, during and after the interview. 

The book “How to succeed in a Job Interview” is equipped with everything you need to do before, during and after the interview. With the tips listed in this book, you will significantly increase chances of getting that job that you’ve been dreaming of. Apart from helping you prepare for a job interview, this book will guide you on any other interview including a promotion, admission to college, television interview and even when preparing for an interview after applying for a bank loan. 

Start your journey to your dream job by reading the book “How to succeed in a Job Interview.”

Author Bio 


If you have bought this short book, you are probably thinking about starting your own business. We live in the 21st century and we have more business opportunities now than ever before. Today, it is possible to start a global online business and to manage companies that are thousands of miles away from home. The technology has made our lives much easier. 

The reason you are reading this book is probably not because you don’t have the idea, but because you need to create a business plan and convince investors that what you plan to do is profitable. Before you continue reading this book, I want to tell you that there is nothing to be afraid of. Yes, writing a business plan is a bit difficult and complicated, as you need to pay attention to details, but yes, you can write it! 

In this short guide, we will go step by step through everything you need to know in order to write a business plan. Also, I am going to create a fictitious company and create a business plan for it. That way you can see how a complete business plan is written step by step. 

Before we start, you need to know that when you are writing the business plan, you should not only think as yourself, but as the owner, as well. Remember, the goal is not to convince you. The goal is to convince the investors. So you need to put yourself in the position of the investor and make sure that what you have written is done really, really well. 

The key to writing a good business plan is not only to have all the sections written such as Marketing plan, financial projection, and so on, but also to have answered all the questions that the investor might have for the project you’re presenting. Always keep this in mind. I will remind you of this many times during this book as I am going to write the potential questions with italic font. 

This was a short introduction to what to expect in this book. Now, let’s get started!
