Drawing heads and faces that look like actual humans is tricky. Brace yourself for an instant "Nope! You can't really fool anyone. That said, getting your drawing to look like a real live person is definitely doable. Follow these basic tips, and once you've nailed them, you're ready for your next challenge: capturing the likeness of a specific person.
Heads aren't perfect circles, and they aren't perfect ovals either. Think of them as egg-shaped, with the tapered end toward the bottom. This obviously varies depending on the person and the angle you're seeing him or her from. If you're drawing a woman, this egg shape may give you a pretty accurate jawline.
You'll want to bring the jawline out. This is where beginner drawings can start to go off the rails, because most people think of eyes as closer to the top of the head than the bottom. But it's easy to make the mistake of placing them way too high.
As you can see in this sketch, the eyes are just about halfway between the bottom of the jaw and the top of the head. There's a lot of head above the eyes, as anyone with a receding hairline knows all too well. But wait, you're probably asking right now: How far apart should the eyes be? And how big should you make them?
Here's a math lesson: A typical head is about five eyes wide.

An easy way to think about it is that the gap between the eyes, where the bridge of the nose goes, is usually about the same width as the face on either side of the eyes. But as with any rule of thumb, remember that it doesn't always apply — only when you're drawing the face head-on in a portrait. Draw a line that runs just above the tops of the eyes, and all the way across the face. Then draw another line across the face, at around the halfway point between the eyes and the bottom of the jaw.

This event will help you gain a further understanding of masculine and feminine energy, and the greatest ways to harness these in your journey This event is about getting further clarity around how you interact and relate to the opposite sex, and how that affects your own being. The doctors told me his memory would come back it never did. I remember the feeling of resentment as my senior leader advised me to get a divorce when I asked for a compassionate reassignment, so that I could get Matt to a hospital capable of taking care of him.
I remember the feeling of victory when I made it through that day, and then the next, and all the hard days after that. The biggest challenge I faced was being among the fewer than 1 percent of Air Force pilots who are African-American women. I had mentors from all walks of life throughout my career who have supported me and encouraged me, including Lt.
After that, it seemed as though we all had this unbroken bond that we would be able to talk about only with one another. I was in the first wave of female aircraft mechanics to arrive at Fairchild Air Force Base. One of my biggest regrets in life is getting out so soon. I was only a mechanic for a year when they phased out the aircraft I was trained on, so I went into administration. I was treated pretty terribly in my unit.
Hazing and predation were prevalent. It will be constant. You will be mistreated, judged, harassed or assaulted because you have a vagina in a world full of penises. Gunnery Sgt. I was the sole graphic designer for the th anniversary commemoration of the Marine Corps Reserve. A wife once yelled at me not to sleep with her husband when we were in the field.
I wanted to tell her not to worry — had she seen how disgusting her husband was when he was in the field? At times I had to thwart the advances of senior officers and others, while also fighting the perception that I was a lesbian. When I reported a commanding officer for sexually harassing a soldier in front of the entire company, I was removed from my job, while the offender received a letter of concern in his restricted file.
I still felt it was my duty to do the right thing, no matter the consequences.
HOW DOES OUR LANGUAGE SHAPE THE WAY WE THINK?
I enlisted in the Army in as a broadcast journalist and was commissioned as an officer in In Kabul, Afghanistan, in , I met my future spouse, Col. Ginger Wallace of the Air Force. At the time of our marriage in , we were the highest-ranking dual-military couple to enter into a same-sex marriage. I was embedded with Marines in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, as a combat correspondent in August How about we just all focus on doing our jobs?
I was one of six female bomb-disposal technicians in the Marine Corps. The technician and corpsman on the team I was pulled off were killed in a blast. Then, about three weeks later, my own partner was killed. My partner went to disarm it, and a second blast killed him. Four days after that, our security team leader was killed.
I completed that tour, devastated and traumatized, then returned a year later as a team leader myself. That deployment was blessedly uneventful. I served in the Coast Guard for five years, first as a shipboard engineer and then as a deep-sea diver. My first unit conducted counternarcotic missions in the Eastern Pacific. I was the first American citizen to go onboard a Colombian narcotics submarine and evaluate its safety, because of my proven willingness to fit into tight and dangerous spaces. Standing in the entrance, I realized there was no way of seeing what was happening outside the sub once the watertight hatch above was sealed.
I began to understand why the four men had locked themselves inside the vessel the night before, believing that the Coast Guard boarding team was actually a group of competing drug smugglers that had come to kill them. The boarding team would later remove one bale of cocaine from the narco-sub. While I was in the Navy, my orders changed because the ship I had been assigned to had no female berthing. I instead was sent to a squadron on Guam, where I met my husband of 21 years.
I grew up watching my sister, an Air Force pilot, constantly deploy to dangerous places. I wanted to do my part in serving my country, but I never knew how. I was deployed to Kunar Province, Afghanistan, in As a civil engineer, my job was to oversee construction projects like schools, roads, bridges and canals.
Sometimes we would visit the schools while classes were going on, and the girls would be scared and try to hide. When this happened, I would take off my helmet and sunglasses so they could see I was a girl too.

Their reaction would immediately change, and they would all focus on my every move, looking away, laughing and blushing if I looked at them. I have always hoped that my presence there, as a female engineer trying to improve their schools, had a positive impact on these young girls.
