Thanks for the message below, Charles -

The symbols that I was showing are from the Front View...or perhaps a  
better way to explain it is that the reader is standing behind the  
signer and viewing the head from that perspective...

If you want to view the head from the overhead top view, you certainly  
can, or even the side view...all those opportunities are there for you  
with the ISWA 2008 symbolset...You can easily write what you posted in  
your message, Charles, with the ISWA symbolset...

These symbols for the head facing the front corner are already in the  
ISWA 2008 symbolset too. No one has to use them however...that is a  
choice. I like them a lot and use them daily now, when writing  
storytelling from video...so they are working for me and i know others  
who are writing with them too...

If you are standing behind the signer and the signer turns to the  
front corner, the side of the head that is closer to the reader can be  
darkened...here is another example:
