This was really helpful. As I try to take my direction to a blend of realistic style with anime, noses are something I really struggle with. The temptation to just mark a simple line is always there and yet it destroys the rest of the image! So thanks for posting this and, as always, great job!
Thank you very much for this!! I often struggle with noses an this is really helpful! I'm also trying to design I character that I have in mind, who has a "strong" male nose, like the ones you drew at the start, so this tutorial comes with perfect timing! Thanks for sharing! <3
I used to have trouble drawing noses, till I was told that I should draw out the shape, or at least find a shape that's similar to what you think it looks like.. Then upon inspection, I realized that the nose (the nostril part) looks like a uterus. Now, that I watched this, I'm gonna be thinking of either a uterus, or a Ninja Turtle.
I have this theory, don't know if it's true, but I think that when I we draw out our character, they have some of our features. Either our eyes, our nose.. our chin.. So when I saw this I was like, "He must be going to draw his nose"
