How To Draw A Nose

Evaluate your drawing to make sure the nose doesn’t look too small or too big. The nose and the eyes are by far the most important parts of a portrait. You can always easily correct the chin and lips, but if the eyes or nose are poorly drawn, your drawing of a nose won’t look good.

Draw a horizontal line through the middle of the circle and a diamond-like shape around it for the nostrils.

Shade the nostrils and remember to leave some areas untouched so you can do some highlighting later.

If you’d like to draw a Human Face, you should start by drawing the Eyes. There is a separate lesson on “How to draw human lips”. Keep in mind that when you draw a portrait, there are no little things. All the features must be drawn correctly, including the nose. This lesson shows how to draw a human nose in pencil step by step

Here is a very simple step by step tutorial on how to draw a nose from the front view. Below is a diagram of a nose broken down into 3 separate parts: the bridge, the nostrils and the ball or tip. Breaking things down into sections will make drawing noses a breeze! We will first use simple shapes/forms as guidelines to construct the shape of the nose and to maintain symmetry.

We are concerned with lighting and shades in this and final steps. Create some shadows using soft pencil, which will give volume to your drawing, making the nose look more realistic.

Hey! This tutorial now comes with a video! If you haven’t watched it yet, click here or press play below! The video is very detailed and contains many additional steps, examples and techniques:

Shade around the outer part of the bridge and around the inner part of the circle, making a long “U” shape. You will notice the shading is thicker at the top of the bridge. That is because the bridge of the nose leads into the brow bones. Don’t worry if the guidelines you created earlier didn’t blend in with your shading. We will darken the drawing later.

Now draw the contour of the bridge and wings of the nose. The width of the wings is equal to half the perpendicular line. Remember that everything must be proportional.

Now just erase extra lines and you’ll get a picture of a classic nose. You can add some details to your drawing so far. Be prepared to make corrections. While it’s not that difficult to draw a nose, a small imperfection can make it appear too bulbous or too thin.

Follow the diamond shape to create the nostrils. Now it’s starting to come together!

Shape and contour the bridge and ball of the nose. You can shade around the top of the circle to make the nose look pointer or shade the middle of the circle to give it a flatter look. Use the eraser to dab areas which appear too dark, any lines that show through or areas you want to highlight.

Noses come in different shapes and sizes. So there are no exact tips on how to draw a girl’s nose or a nose of a child. For now, you can simply draw a nose that is often portrayed in educational pictures. I hope you don’t need any explanation of how to draw these two lines (see my example).

It is much easier to draw a nose with such markings. Now you can see that it’s not hard to draw a nose from this point on. Just draw a streamlined shape of the wings. Mark two lines from the bridge of the nose and draw the tip.

Next, you want to use a blending stump (learn how to use a blending stump here) to gently blend out the skin and give it a softer look. Add some touch-ups and go over your highlighted areas once more with a kneaded eraser. You can try different diamond shapes as well as circles to create more unique nose shapes. Experiment with shading to achieve longer, flatter, or more defined noses and so on. Click here to check out my tutorial on how to draw a nose step by step from the side.

I will be using the following materials for this nose drawing tutorial: – Mechanical Pencil with 0.5 mm HB lead by Ain (If you’re a beginner, it may be hard to shade with a mechanical pencil. You can use a blunt HB pencil for a smoother shading and blending experience). – Kneaded Rubber Eraser – Blending Stump (Learn how to use one here) – Canson Bristol Paper (smooth side)

Draw a circle for the ball of the nose and 2 curved lines on each side for the bridge. Keep the strokes light so they can be erased in later steps.
