Nose Study

Nose Study

In this module you’ll learn how to draw a nose in a lifelike manner.




Video 1 (Introduction and Materials)

In this video I highlight all the materials I will be using in the drawing. I demonstrate how I create compressed charcoal shavings and how I apply it in my drawings.

Video 2 (Outlining)

In this video I show you how I create my proportions using freehand. I demonstrate and elaborate on the importance of the specified tools use to map out an outline – creating the foundation to build upon.

Video 3 (Background)

In this video I reveal my secret tool I use for creating and layering my backgrounds. When applying compressed charcoal onto the paper on using to draw, I use this secret tool to blend in the charcoal – creating an even layer to build upon. I also reveal to appliance I use to clean up dust deposits from the charcoal shavings used.

Video 4 (Layering)

In this portion of the drawing process I demonstrate how I build up layers creating lifelike tonal values. This part of my drawing process is the most important with achieving a photo-real depiction of a subject.

Video 5 (Details & Highlights)

In this last portion of the drawing process I  finish working on the details of the nose. I go back to restructure certain shapes, tonal values and details.

In this stage of the process I highlight the drawing tools I use to achieve highlights within the drawing. I go back to certain areas of the drawing to remeasure proportions and fine-tune the balance light and reflection.
