Noses!!! These are hard, but fun. The top one is Proko’s lesson, and the other two are from reference pics online . Thank you for any feedback.

It might be helpful to get the general shape and proportions down before going into the shading. For example, the last image of the woman compared to your second drawing could use some adjustments. Her glabella is much more petite than you have drawn. In addition, the length of her nasal dorsum is longer than you have drawn. Overall, this is a very good attempt. Great job.

Hi @Cristina Kaiden, nice studies! And especially good job with the nostril area in the bottom drawing; it feels very threedimensional I'll do my best to help you further: I would do some studies were you break the nose up into planes, as shown in the lesson video https://www.proko.com/course-lesson/how-to-draw-a-nose-anatomy-and-structure/discussions first the major planes then the smaller ones. When you're comfortable with the planes, shading the nose becomes easier. In your second study, the area of the ball of the nose and the nostrils, feels a little flat. You've done a good job in showing depth with overlaps, but the shading is hard to read. If you start by identfying the planes, getting a clear shading becomes a lot easier: Step 1 Identify the planes Step 2 Identify the direction of light Step 3 Planes facing away from the light are darker. Planes facing the same direction receives the same value. Step 4 Now you can start softening things and adding dark accents, because you're doing it on a solid foundation I hope this was helpful :) Keep up the good work!

Some nose jobs this week. So many different shapes! Not sure if I’m going about improving in the right way. I watch the video. Draw along with it. Then try to apply this to several drawings with my photo references. Then I go back to the video and try again. I’ll keep going with this approach till the end, and then try a dozen or so portraits before going through various aspects of the course again.

Noses are the worst, aren't they? I always struggle with them. But these are pretty darn good. Very solid drawing. One thing I've been trying lately is using the Riley Abstraction method for constructing and solidly placing them on the skull in the proper perspective. Of course, your mileage may vary :-)
