How to Sketch Noses

Step 1.

This is a reference sketch I drew to show you the many different types and styles of noses. As you can see there are all types of sizes, shapes, widths, and even structures. I think you will get a good idea on what I'm trying to convey.

Step 2.

This is a sketch on how a nose from the front view should be drawn. You start with a two dimensional triangle like you see here. There should be a line in the middle of the triangular shape as well.

Step 3.

As you can see from the sketch, the second step to a front view of a nose takes on a more defined shape. The bridge of the nose is sketched out, and the nostrils are drawn, and the nose tip is formed as well.

Step 4.

When the sketch lines are erased the end result of a sketched nose looks incredible. The sizes, and definitions of a nose can variety depending on the character you are making a nose on. Are you ready to start a real lesson now? Good, lets get starte   

Step 5.

You will be drawing a side view of a nose in a sketching motion. Start by making a semi diamond like shape like you see here and then move to step six.

Step 6.

You will now begin sketching out the actual lining of the nose. In this case I'm drawing a rough and rugged style of nose like you see here. There is a series of angles and arches for this style of nose.

Step 7.

You will now begin sketching out the nose tip definition and then draw out the nostril like you see here.

Step 8.

For the last drawing step all you have to do to add detail, definition, and contour is shade in the tip of the nose and then add some other detailing lines. Erase the guidelines that you drew in step one to clean up the drawing.

Step 9.

Here is the finished drawing of a sketched nose. Now you are ready to add this nose to your next character. I hope you enjoyed learning how to sketch noses.

Description: Okay guys here it is, my final lesson for the drawing day. I hope you all had an awesome time as I submitted some cool tutorials for you to tackle and enjoy. For the nights end, I thought I would submit another sketched drawing that I did all on paper instead of the tablet. The steps of course where drawn in Photoshop but the finished line art is an actual finished sketched drawing. It takes me longer to draw on paper because I have to actually sit there and use tools like erasers, different pencils, and even different paper. Each step and tip is also sketched out on paper, and making the steps is also time consuming as well. Once the drawing is done and all the information is ready to share, it takes more time scanning each image in, and digitally enlarging the drawings to make them a good size to view, and learn from. What is this lesson going to be on you ask? Well, this tutorial is going to show you "how to sketch noses", step by step. Sketching and drawing is the same, the only difference between the two is one drawing comes out looking realistic, and the other is usually drawn to look cleaner, and less serious. I have always enjoyed sketching on paper because there is more inspiration flowing through my fingers when I can actually feel the pencil tip scrap against the fine grains of the paper. If you are one of those people that always had a hard time sketching a nose, this lesson should help you sketch noses a whole lot better. That does it for me guys I have to be on my merry way. Guess what? There is only sixteen more days until Christmas, yippy! I hope I get an Ipad from Santa this year and the new drawing tablet I always wanted. Adios people!
