Nose drawing tutorial: a geometrical approach | Drawing Factory by Vincenzo Nose drawing can be a difficult skill to master due to the complexity of the nose shape. With this tutorial I will try to describe a method of defining a geometrical shape for the nose that should help notably its correct positioning on the face while maintaining correct orientation and proportion of the different parts. With this tutorial on nose drawing I am not going to enter into the anatomical detail of the nose and its inner structure but I intend to provide a quick way to rapidly block out a correctly positioned nose in a face drawn from any angle. Considering its general form, the nose is a triangular, wedge-shaped block narrow at its root and broad and prominent at its base in the mid region of the face. Examine this solid with attention, this will be the foundation of correctly drawing a nose. The base of the nose has a trapezoidal shape and the whole solid can be inscribed in a parallelepiped.
