A study of the nose

Hey, so this morning I looked at some of my old drawings and realised the nose was a bit rubbish. So I decided to focus on it a bit since it’s a really important part of the face. It’s quite prominent and always good to know. I’ve included some of my notes in pencil but I think I need a lot more work. Again, it’s really important to remember how shade works on it and the variation there is.

I started by designing the flat shape of the nose, then worked on each kinda angle and then how shadows and light play a part. After that I tried to draw a nose and think about how it looks on a skeleton considering the nose is mostly fat and tissue.
