Boy oh boy – Am I feeling productive today! The Nose Lesson for my upcoming “Character Creator Course: Women” is now a wrap! Phew!...
You might be wondering what the differences are between Male and Female noses… and honestly, there’s not really that many as far as the basic construction goes. Laying down a solid foundation to build the nose upon is pretty much the same across the board for both men and women.
But there are still a few minor considerations to make. Similar to the other features of a female character, the traits that make a nose look feminine are in fact the ‘lack’ of definition and detail. Drawing women all comes down to subtlety. And let me tell you – it’s a lot easier to over define, render and detail something than it is to hold back.
While men might have sharper, shapely, chiseled looking noses that require a more intense articulation of the feature’s forms, the nose of a woman has a certain elegance to it, where less is often more. That can actually make it harder to draw an attractive female nose sometimes, because you’ve got fewer lines to use essentially! So you’ve got to choose where to place them, and how you place them carefully.
In this Lesson, I’ll show you how to construct the basic foundation of the nose and highlight the key pieces of anatomy below the surface that need to be considered in order to accurately define it.
After covering the standard Front, Side and ¾ Angle view points, you’ll then learn how to take that basic foundation and use it to draw the nose from pretty much any angle and on any perspective you can think of.
Next I’ll be moving onto the female mouth! Needless to say I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into that one. ;)
Hope you enjoyed this little preview. Super – SUPER – excited about this course. Did some more editing this evening, and I gotta say this is shaping up to be something really EPIC!.. .
