How to draw noses by safva How to draw noses by safva
I've been thinking so much about ways to honestly put the process down into a tutorial, and finally this morning did I get the chance to actually make this! To be honest, if it weren't for VaoK's lovely comments on my work and her request to make this, the fantastic idea would have never even come to mind. :XD:
This took me about two hours this morning to draw out the diagrams, and an hour this afternoon to compose the entire thing. T^T I'm sorry if it looks awfully bland on first glance, but I tried to make it as neat and psychedelic as possible, really, I did~~.
I also hadn't looked at other nose tutorials as reference, which has me completely shocked at myself. I usually give them a good amount of concentration before I dive into making one of my own, however this one had come quite naturally to me. I suppose all the mulling over how to possibly make this as easily understandable as possible paid of after all. :XD: Not to mention triangles!! Oh my. Wonderful shapes. Incredibly helpful. And I'm very glad that they indeed are the easiest way (well, I think so at least) in order to use as a base for a nose. :meow:

If perhaps you need further help, don't be afraid to put your questions in a comment down there, alright! <3 I don't bite~~ or at least I'm quite certain that I don't xD
I really do hope this helps~! >w< Feedback would be lovely as well, mmkay :sushi:~

I like noses, But they do not like me.
So I started to dislike them too, however you can't draw people without noses.
(unless you're voldemort, but that's a different story.)
Therefor this tutorial will be very helpful. Thank you!

Haha XD 

I'd be so glad if it helps you in the least! Don't worry; once you get the hang of noses, you'll begin to enjoy drawing them.
