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.
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.
Now use the compass and draw a small circle on the left part of the rectangle at the bottom, marking the nostril.
Draw the second circle in the same way. Try to keep the figures on one line.
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.
The lines gradually become narrow at the top. Bridge of the nose should be smooth.
Gently erase the basis and the symmetry line.
Give clear contours to the nose’s tip with the help of another line.
Then draw the additional lines near the upper part of the nose.
These lines are similar to the nose’s outline. They divide the nose into side and central parts.
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.
Draw the nose’s middle in the form of irregular oval.
Draw straight lines up from the tip.
They show the nose’s volume.
Erase the line inside of the tip to connect it with the upper details.
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.
Draw the same glare on the right half of the nose to create the symmetry.
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.
You can also color the nose online.
