# How to Sketch Noses

## Step 1.

This is a reference sketch I drew to show you the many different types and styles of noses. As you can see there are all types of sizes, shapes, widths, and even structures. I think you will get a good idea on what I'm trying to convey.

## Step 2.

This is a sketch on how a nose from the front view should be drawn. You start with a two dimensional triangle like you see here. There should be a line in the middle of the triangular shape as well.

## Step 3.

As you can see from the sketch, the second step to a front view of a nose takes on a more defined shape. The bridge of the nose is sketched out, and the nostrils are drawn, and the nose tip is formed as well.

## Step 4.

When the sketch lines are erased the end result of a sketched nose looks incredible. The sizes, and definitions of a nose can variety depending on the character you are making a nose on. Are you ready to start a real lesson now? Good, lets get started by moving to step five.

## Step 5.

You will be drawing a side view of a nose in a sketching motion. Start by making a semi diamond like shape like you see here and then move to step six.

## Step 6.

You will now begin sketching out the actual lining of the nose. In this case I'm drawing a rough and rugged style of nose like you see here. There is a series of angles and arches for this style of nose.

## Step 7.

You will now begin sketching out the nose tip definition and then draw out the nostril like you see here.

## Step 8.

For the last drawing step all you have to do to add detail, definition, and contour is shade in the tip of the nose and then add some other detailing lines. Erase the guidelines that you drew in step one to clean up the drawing.

## Step 9.

Here is the finished drawing of a sketched nose. Now you are ready to add this nose to your next character. I hope you enjoyed learning how to sketch noses.
