How to Draw a Human Nose
This lesson will teach you how to draw a human face step by step, including how to draw the nose. There is also a separate lesson on “How to draw human lips” if you want to learn more about drawing lips and eyes.
There are no specific instructions on how to draw a girl’s or a child’s nose; for now, just draw a nose that is frequently depicted in educational illustrations; noses come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so don’t worry if you don’t know how to do it yet.
The wings should be half the width of the perpendicular line.
Mark two lines from the bridge of the nose and one from the tip; it is much easier to draw a nose with such markings. As you can see, drawing a nose from this point on is simple. Simply draw a streamlined shape of the wings.
Be prepared to make adjustments if a minor flaw causes it to appear too bulbous or thin for your liking.
Create some shadows with a soft pencil, which will add volume to your drawing and make the nose look more realistic; this and the final steps are all about lighting and shades.
The nose and eyes are the most important parts of a portrait, so check to make sure the nose isn’t too small or too big. You can always fix the chin and lips, but if the eyes or nose are poorly drawn, your drawing of a nose will look bad.
How do you shade your nose?
Start at the bridge of your nose and apply a thin line of concealer down your nose with a small brush, stopping before you reach the tip, using a concealer that’s a shade or two brighter than your natural skin tone.
What does the size of your nose mean?
The nose’s size is directly related to the nose-bearer’s sense of power, drive, leadership, ego, and desire to work independently; they have their own mind and find it difficult to work under someone else; they also despise small talk.
How do you draw the perfect lips?
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to draw lips in the frontal view.
- Refine the outline and show the volume in the lower lip with two ovals.
- Add a shadow for the upper and lower lips with the HB pencil.
- Add some shading and tone to the whole drawing.
- Add the lines on the lips.
How do you shade facial features?
To create a shadow, shade up into the outline of two small ovals for the nostrils, then start shading a slightly lighter shade as you move toward the center of the nose from the left side.
