http://merrillk.com/index.php?part=fi... Today YOU are going to draw the female nose. Never drawn before? Thats OK. I will try to make it easy for you! ....Here we go. ......Drawing is much easier when we break things down in to shapes. So lets do that with the female nose. Notice that there are two trapezoids and an oval. These are our primary shapes with the nose..... Draw them on your paper now; and don't forget to put in the nostrils.......... Next, I will show you how to shade the nose. Don't worry, its going to be easy! You have two options to learn shading. Option one- click the link in the video description to go to a webpage that I made for this video..... This webpage has eight easy steps and text to help you. Option two is to watch the second part of this video, where I will guide you through the shading process. I think that you should take advantage of both options to learn how to shade the nose!
In comparison to the Male nose (left) the female nose is:
1.) less pronounced or smaller than the male nose
2.) has a more narrow bridge
3.) has smaller nostrils
4.) slightly rounder at the bottom (this is not the case for EVERY person though)
5.) had less shadow area around the "eye socket" or orbit, on both sides of the bridge at the top of the nose.
STEP 1- In step one of drawing the female nose, focus your attention on the shapes. There are three main shapes. 1.) An oval at the bottom, 2.) A tall trapezoid for the bridge of the nose. 3.) An upside down trapezoid at the top of the nose. 4.) In addition to the major shapes, don't forget to add the shapes for the nostrils.
STEP 2- For step two, simply darken the nostrils. The nostrils will be the darkest tone on any persons nose.
STEP 3- For this step, create a shadow at the bottom of the nose.
STEP 4- Erase the lines on the sides of the bridge of the nose. (This is where most people go wrong in drawing the nose!) The only part of the nose that can be expressed in linear form is the bottom of the nose (Below and to the sides of the nostrils...especially the sides).
STEP 5- Replace the solid lines with soft "cross hatching" (a fancy term for shading- "hatches" are multiple lines, created by the tip of the pencil used to create darker tones....watch the video at the top if you do not understand).
STEP 6- Smudge the cross hatching with a tortillion (blending stump or stub).....Not only on the bridge of the nose, but also where you feel in necessary. I usually do a few layers of hatching, followed by smudging.
STEP 7- I am putting on the finishing touches. I used my eraser to make highlights on the nose. IMPORTANT: The female nose (right) is smoothed out/ polished / finished, more than the male nose........ How does an artist smooth out/polish/finish the nose?....By 1.) hatching with the pencil 2.) smudging the hatches with the tortillion and 3.) using the eraser to create highlights. (This is demonstrated in the video at the top of the page).
STEP 8- In the final step I darkened the nostrils (For the second time).
