Is there anyone can help me with drawing a "star" form method?

I'm currently drawing a Captain America and I find it hard to draw a frontal form of star on his shield. Here's the WIP :


Notice the star is somehow doesn't looks right. Anyone can help me with this? :blink:

"Here is a five-pointed star you can draw with protractor and ruler.


First draw a regular pentagon i.e. all sides the same length and each internal angle 108 degrees. Then draw in the diagonals to get the star."

You actually have good horizontal measurements, you just need to define a center point in that circle, draw a light vertical line, and re-draw your star based upon that center point.

The way the circles go on the shield shows that it is a straight on shot of the shield. The star should be straight on too.
