Drawing a nose is a real challenge for all drawing learners. The human face is always a challenge, but the nose, especially drawn in front, is the most difficult. And it doesn’t have to be that hard. If you would like to know how to draw a nose, then follow the red lines in my instructions as this is how I mark what I am drawing at a given step. In turn, if you want to practice other parts of the face, I invite you to the posts How to draw lips and How to draw an ear.
You can start the exercise without any special preparation. Here, all you need is a piece of paper, a pencil, an eraser and your wishes. If you already have everything then let’s get started!
How to draw a nose? – instruction
We are ready to go to work. Remember not to press the pencil too hard. The first shapes are auxiliary lines that we will erase at the very end.
Time needed: 5 minutes.
In this post, we learn how to draw a nose seen from the front.
- Drawing of the nose – draw a circle
The first step is to draw a circle at the bottom of the page.
- How the nose is drawn – step two
Then draw a longitudinal cylinder slightly overlapping the circle.
- How to draw nostrils
Now, unfortunately, it won’t be that easy, but I know you can do it. At the bottom of the circle on both sides, make hooked bows. Make two diagonal lines at the bottom of the cylinder.
- How to draw a nose
Round two diagonal lines towards the nostrils. Make a right-side arch between the nostrils.
- Drawing of the nose – for coloring
Now you just need to erase unnecessary guides that have already served their purpose. And this is how you drew a nice nose!
- Color your drawing
To finish the drawing, take the crayons and color it. Pay attention to the chiaroscuro to add depth to it.
