Drawing the nose • A portrait drawing will not appear correct until the drawing is complete. • All drawings are to be created from live views or the portrait will become generic. • Your image needs to reflect character-moles, hair, freckles, imperfections of any kind.
Nose • Creating a nose is different for everyone. The shape always varies from person to person. • Adding value to your shape will form a proper nose. • Layer values for a more realistic structure.
