In Fig. 5 the eyes are looking sideways, the pupils being turned into the corners of the eyes. Note how the movement of the eyeball has carried the eyelid with it, altering the shape for the moment. In normal position the highest point of the lid outline is at H (Fig. 2; also Plate 25).

In Fig. 8, note the double curve in the flesh under the eye, which is caused by the turn of the eyeball. The profile blocking of Fig. 9 is shown at Fig. 11.

Take particular note that the eyeball in Fig. 9 is at a slight slant to the nose.

The eyeball shows the nature of its rounded surface in this position, continuing into the top and bottom lids. The pupil of the eye has become an oval in shape, and the upper fid, plainly seen receding into its space under the eyebrow, shown at H (Fig. 2), is well expressed when the eye is in shadow.

Fig. 7 is the blocking arrangement for Fig. 8. Notice the perspective expressed in the usual upright length and the upward curve of the line for the lids. The reverse takes place in Fig. 6, which is a blocking for the eye looking down. Blocking in Fig. 10 shows how the eyelid can move up or down. The dotted lines indicate gradual rise of lid. When quite down, the bottom rim takes a rounded curve (Fig. 6).

In the finished sketch, lights on the eyeballs must fall in the same direction on both eyes, otherwise a squint would be suggested.

In the full front view, eyelashes are seen to fall outwards in growth. They are not straight and regular, but curl up on top lid, and down on the lower. They are very fine, and can be more plainly seen in three-quarter or profile (Fig. 9) view of the eye. Their value is to soften the outline and give interest to the eye. Its relative size and position to the whole face are given in

Nose Construction (Plate 32).

The blocking lines for the nose outline are shown at A, being two interlacing onions. B is the base of the nose with blocking outline in dotted lines. The left side illustrates the anatomy and the right the flesh formation. See also N for base of nose.

The side wings P turn into the open nostril at the finish of their outlines, as at /, K and M, also the centre cartilage (see N). The hard ridge of the base outline is interrupted in the middle of the side by a soft folding over of the flesh (see B at X, and in profile at K). C marks position of the bridge of the nose (see also Plate 20), and from this point downwards the shape can vary very considerably, being merely cartilage.

The nose of the female is generally narrow, the bridge giving the nostrils a slightly pinched look (see L). Very little of the base is seen when the nose has a downward movement, sometimes none at all if extreme.
