Let’s talk about noses for a second…they’re “as plain as the nose on your face” — I mean that’s how the saying goes…right?
Well...have you ever tried to draw one and really get it “correct”?
As it turns out, capturing that elusive nose shape in a drawing is directly related to capturing your subject’s unique character and personality. Get it wrong, and the viewers of your drawing start asking “Who is that?!”.
It could be that your nose simply refuses to “pop” off your drawing paper. It just seems bound and determined to stay flat!
Perhaps even more common (and problematic)...the pencil in your hand simply won’t draw the correct shape—that shape that seemed so simple in your head just a moment earlier.
But the nose just keeps coming out too wide or too thin...swollen or crooked...oink-ish or like it may be better suited for a chicken...
...or (and this may just be the worst one of all) those well-meaning pencil strokes below the nose make this portrait seem in desperate need of a handkerchief.
It’s certainly not the flattering masterpiece that you started out to create. And it’s certainly not the drawing that makes you burst with pride, eager to show everyone...or anyone, actually—much less the dear person you were trying so hard to compliment in your drawing.
And it’s not just the frustration of trying over and over again. It’s not long before you’re erasing holes in your paper with so many attempts…and you have to start over.
It’s not your fault. If they handed out A-pluses for effort, you’d be acing this nose-drawing thing.
So what’s going to make you proud of the next nose you draw...and really give yourself an A-plus for it?
Do you know what to do different next time?
Master artist (and illustrator extraordinaire) Darrel Tank knows a few things about drawing a nose...and the frustrations he’s seen it cause for countless students when a portrait drawing goes awry.
And that’s exactly why he has gone to such great lengths to dispel the myths, the misinterpretations that our own brain confuses us all with, and explains in vivid detail how you can become a master of drawing the nose.
It’s all found in Darrel’s master series How to Draw Noses.
This 3-DVD set is jam-packed with Darrel’s over 40 years of drawing experience.
You'll learn how to recognize "contours" and "edges" for the 3 different perspectives. And how to visualize what goes "around and out of sight" and what and how much is still in view — and how you can determine the "foreshortening".
But it doesn't stop there.
Once we look at recognizing the basic structure and perspective, we'll dive deep into looking at many various shapes.
You'll discover 5 indicators that you can use to determine what the nose shape is in your subject. This in-depth class on "Shapes of a Nose" alone could completely change how you see and interpret the nose in your portraits.
Then, once we've explored the 5 indicators, we'll go through 4 drawing demonstrations. Each of these lessons will show you a contrasting example and you'll see exactly how to apply each of the 5 indicators to very different types of noses.
Now...if it's been asked once, it's probably been asked a million times: "How do you draw an elderly person to look the correct age? How do you capture wrinkles without making it look like cracks?"
You'll be happy to know that there's an entire lesson dedicated to drawing a nose in more detail.
And not only will it show you the secrets to drawing wrinkles that are a complement to your subject — rather than something that becomes a distraction — but you'll also get to see an example of drawing someone that is wearing glasses, another topic that is frequently requested.
And, of course, since this lesson focuses on how to develop a nose further, you'll have a chance to learn more about capturing the subtle nuances that make a subject "who they are". Darrel's new How to Draw Noses series will give you all the tools you need to master the nose in your many future portraits.
