How to Draw Anime and Manga Noses
Learn how to draw anime and manga noses in various styles from the front, side, and 3/4 views.
Drawing Anime and Manga Noses
The noses in anime and manga are usually small and pointy, with details such as the nostrils rarely drawn at all. For this tutorial, we’ll divide the noses into three main types:. Basic nose drawn with just lines. Nose defined with a shadow. Semi-realistic nose.
Drawing a Basic Anime or Manga Nose
This is the most basic style of anime nose and the most straightforward way to draw one.
Basic Nose Front View Drawing
To place the nose, first divide the head vertically and horizontally in half; for the front view of the most basic nose, simply draw a dot or a dash; depending on how simplistic you want the style to be, you can even draw the nose from the front.
Basic Nose 3/4 View Drawing
You can keep the vertical placement of the nose in the 3/4 view the same as in the front view; you can roughly estimate where this will be by projecting a line down from the forehead to the bottom of the chin, or by drawing only the top curve or even just a dot/dash.
