To find out the placement of the facial features, you need to map out where they will be. First bisect the face vertically. If this was a 'head-on' view, you would simply draw a line down the middle of the head, however, since this is a three-quarter view, you need to nudge that vertical line towards the right. Also make sure that it curves towards the middle at the top. This will make it appear to be wrapping back over the head. Next bisect the head horizontally. This line represents placement of the eyes and top of the ear. It should be half-way from the top of the head, to the bottom of the chin. Add two lines that will represent the neck, under the jaw and extending from the back of the head.
