Figure Drawing and Composition, Richard G. Hatton

The eyeball is located in a socket in the skull. The socket itself is roughly rectangular and slanted slightly down to the outside of the face.
In this drawing A is the upper notch of the eye socket and corresponds to the greatest rise of the eyelid. B is the boney outer top edge of the eye socket and corresponds with the fleshy buldge above the eye. C is the boney outer structure of the eye socket which is relected in the shape of the skin at tht point. D is the lower outer edge of the eye socket. E is the lower lid. F is the smoothest part of the eye socket. H is a nasal bone. I is the lower border. J is the ridge toward the nose. L is the inner side of the upper border is runs over a trochlea or pulley with which one of the muscles of the eye works.
