I have been having trouble lately understanding the foreshortened head when I am drawing my portraits. The one thing the anatomy books I have read that I did not learn are how to cut the foreshortened face into sections and use the "eyes rule", they just they gave the basics. So can someone tell me if I did this diagram (of my next portrait) right:

Ok, but the biggest thing I have trouble understanding is how do I know where the top of the head is (so I can cut my face in half)?
