How to Draw Different Nose Types
This tutorial demonstrates a simple approach to drawing different types of noses, including step-by-step pencil drawing examples and simple instructions. If you’re following along with a computer, it’s recommended that you do so with pencil and paper.
Step 1 – Make a Construction Drawing of a Given Nose
Because noses come in a variety of shapes and sizes, a quick construction drawing is a good way to estimate their overall proportions. Keep the construction lines light so you can easily erase them when they’re no longer needed. The lines in the examples have been darkened to make them easier to see.
Step 2 – Make a Line Drawing
Make the initial drawing light so you can easily erase your lines if you make a mistake. Outline different types of noses over construction drawing. Inside the construction frame, draw the actual shape of the nose, including all bends and curves.
Step 3 – Begin Shading
Begin by filling in the areas with the darkest shadows, then set up a sort of “shading guide” for yourself that establishes the light and dark parts of the drawing for the rest of the nose.
Step 4 – Finish the Nose Drawing
The nostrils should be the darkest part of the drawing, followed by the bottom and sides of the bridge of the nose, and the tip, front of the nose, and upper part of the area around the nostrils should be light.
The profile view of a nose isn’t particularly difficult to draw, but it’s good practice for beginners. As with most things, start with a construction drawing, then a line drawing, and then apply shading in layers to avoid making mistakes.
What is the most attractive nose shape?
Of course, beauty is subjective, but a Greek, or straight, nose is traditionally thought to be the most attractive.
What is the perfect nose?
The goal of facial plastic surgery is never to completely alter the way you look, but to enhance your natural looks with a nose that has a more harmonious shape. An ideal, or perfect, nose is one that has a shape that works in harmony with your other facial features.
What is a button nose girl?
Women with a button nose are said to be imaginative and proud of their nose shape; they are especially caring, loving, optimistic, nurturing, and kind. However, button nosed people are also known for their emotional instability, and they often feel threatened by people with a stronger will.
What is a turned up nose?
The tip of an upturned nose is angled upward, and the angle can range from slightly upturned to exaggerated, making the nose appear short and the nostrils prominent.
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.
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.
