Shade in the left side of the nose. Look out for small changes in tonal value as well as lost and found lines.
Step 5: Add the right hand nostril wing
Draw in the right hand nostril wing. The sun is from the right hand side, so look carefully at the different tonal values.
Step 6: Root of the Nose
Draw in the root of the nose and start to establish the areas around the eye and forehead. This area is used to make the nose protrude from the face.
Step 7: Highlights
Complete the nose by lifting out the highlights with your eraser
Just as your nose leads your face so the drawn nose has to appear to stand out in three dimensions on the paper. As you subtly shade around the nose step back and look at what you are doing. This will give a better overall view of the effect.
