How to draw a human nose (+ coloring)

Sometimes the nose drawing is also a big problem. You can draw it as a dash of course. But if you draw a true-to- life drawing, to draw a dash will be wrong.

We offer you a detailed instruction of a nose drawing. It won’t be difficult. You will cope with nose drawing in the shortest time.

You need:
1

Basis

The basis must be rectangular, because a nose is elongated. Draw a small vertical rectangle. It will be easier to draw a nose with the help of it.

2

Line of symmetry

Divide the rectangle with the help of a vertical line. Measure the width of the figure to make the figure’s parts equal and then divide it. You need a line to make the nose’s parts look symmetrical.

Lower circles

Now use the compass and draw a small circle on the left part of the rectangle at the bottom, marking the nostril.

Lower circles

Draw the second circle in the same way. Try to keep the figures on one line.

Central details

Draw the center in the form of an oval on the symmetry line. The oval slightly goes beyond the basis line.

Connection of the nose's parts

The nose’s parts are connected with the help of the lines curved up.

Lines go smoothly from the lower part of the oval and end inside the circles at the bottom.

Giving the shape

Draw the upper part, starting from the nostrils, and ending near the upper side of the basis.

Giving the shape

The lines gradually become narrow at the top. Bridge of the nose should be smooth.

Side lines

Then draw the additional lines near the upper part of the nose.

Side lines

These lines are similar to the nose’s outline. They divide the nose into side and central parts.

Shadows

If you look at the nose, the light is laid unevenly on it due to the uneven shape of the nose. Mark shadows using the lines.

Glares of light

The last details are the glares of light. Although the nose is not glossy, some parts of it seem to be lighter than another ones when there is a bright light.

Glares of light

Draw the same glare on the right half of the nose to create the symmetry.

Coloring

Color the nose with different shades of pink and nude. Side parts must be darker, because they are in the shade. The nose’s middle is lighter, and the nose’s center and light glares are the lightest.
