How to draw a nose (front)

Here's a quick step-by-step on how to draw a nose from the front.

This is basically my process. Quick and easy.


How to draw a nose from the Front Start out by drawing a head as an oval. Divide the oval into halves and quarters as you see here. The nose will go on the ¼ line. The eyes, on the ½ line. Draw a semi-triangle for the nose like the example here. The point at the bottom will be the bottom part of the tip of the nose. Erase the guides. Round the tip of the nose. Play around with nose sizes and shapes. To bring out the nostrils, just darken the lines a bit. You can add some shading to give the nose shape.

Admin note: I found a cool online course called Pencil Drawing Made Easy that specializes in taking beginners and teaching them how to draw in a realistic style. The course itself is online video, so you can access it from anywhere in the world. I will do a full review of the course soon, but for now I just want you to know that I think it's definitely worth checking out, and you're sure to get better at drawing if you follow the lessons. I'm already learning a lot from it! The course teaches you how to draw ANYTHING realistically in pencil - from onions to hands to hyper realistic portraits. The teacher explains everything really well, so you'll understand exactly what you're doing and why. Click here to check it out!
