Once you're confident drawing a Manga head face-on, you're ready to try drawing in three-quarter view.

Begin the same way you did with the head facing forward, with a circle and a vertical line. This time though, draw a curved line that begins at the top of the vertical guideline, follows the imaginary curve of the head to about the half way point, then continues straight to a point just left of the bottom of the vertical guideline. This new guideline is essentially the replacement of the vertical one and will help you place the eyes nose and mouth. (You can draw it facing right, of course, but for the time being let's work in the same direction.)
