Drawing A Nose 

The nose is composed of various shapes. These shapes are what give the nose its shape and definition.

There are many ways to draw a nose. Whether you're a beginner or a professional, there are some essential points you should know. The nose is a complex structure with three main cartilage sections and one visible bone, the nasal bone. You can also exaggerate or ignore some of its features if you want to emphasize character differences. You can use a cartoon style to exaggerate its features.

Sketch an Outline

To draw a nose, first sketch out the outline of your nose. Make sure to draw the ball at the front, the bridge plane, and the septum. Then, trace the sides and the bridge plane. Then, add the tips of the nose. Using the outlines, you can outline look more realistic. Remember to draw the septum and the keystone to give the nose volume and shape.

Add Transitions

Now, draw a transition between the two states. Then, add a small circle for the septum. Finally, add a ball on the end of the nose. The final step is to colour it with skin. If you have trouble with this, use the image of a nose that you like as a guide. Then, try to draw a nose from a side perspective. It's not as hard as it seems.

More Details

When you're finished with the outline of your circle, draw the nostrils. Start by removing the bottom part of the nose. Then, you can add the middle third of the circle to form the bridge. You can then draw the tip of the nose. It would be best if you also shaded the outer portion of the nose. Then, you can apply colour to the outside. You can then shade the remaining areas of the nose to make it look more realistic.

Add Some Shading

When you're finished with the basic structure, you can begin to add shading. The next step is to erase all the guidelines. For example, a rectangular box will make a guide:

  1. A half-circle will sit on top of the square.
  2. A triangle will be drawn on top of the overlapping circle.
  3. You'll add a second circle at the tip of the rectangle to form the other nostril.

Pay Attention to Details

When drawing a nose, remember that the shape of the nose varies from person to person. It is essential to pay attention to the width of the nasal dorsum to create a realistic-looking nose. It would help if you then continued to make a thin line from tip to tip. If you're a beginner, you can practice the tips of your nose using a pencil and a ruler. Eventually, you'll be able to draw the whole nose.

Finishing Details

Once you've sketched the outline of the nose, you can start defining the nostrils and the septum. In addition to this, you should add a ball at the bottom of the nose to complete the drawing on you Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper. After that, you'll have a realistic-looking nose that you can be proud of. Then, when you have mastered the basics of drawing a nod, you can start on the rest of the face.
