If the vanishing points are off the paper, how to determine that imagined point and how not to lose it?

Main proportions of a head

Main proportions of a head

Question from Wayne, Drawing Academy student

In the “Drawing a face” lesson, the 1/3 placement of the nose, eyebrow, and hairline uses the top of the hairline and bottom of the chin as the outer dimensions to calculate the 1/3-1/3-1/3 and not the top of the skull and chin. This leads to the question: How much room do I allow for the hairline to the top of the skull before I divide it into thirds?

I really appreciate your help and critique of my work. It has taught me to pay more attention to detail.

Thanks so much,
Nicole
