How to Draw A Cartoon Nose

Drawing a cartoon nose: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • Smell and taste are heavily related. In fact, more than 80% of what we taste is due to our sense of smell!
  • The nose is mostly made of cartilage.
  • A broken nose can be more painful than it looks!

Step 1

How to draw a cartoon nose step 1

Let's see how we can learn to draw a nose easily by studying this smelly part of the body! First you have the dorsum of the nose (1). At the bottom, you can find the tip of it (2), the ala (5) and the naris (4).

This nose is really delicate and thin since it belongs to a teenage girl. Notice how the philtrum (3) (the two little edge) is making the connection between the bottom of the nose and the top of the lips.

Step 2

The nose is made out of lines and two circles for the naris. This drawing is really simple and it's not really and advantage. If one line is misplace, the whole drawing won't look right and you will not get the desired effect. Take some time to study carefully this drawing of a nose since I think it's one of the most difficult part of the body to draw.

Step 3

Start by drawing two circles at the bottom of the nose and one line for the dorsum. Draw the outline and then erase the two circles. Sketch two small semi-circles for each naris. Then, add some lines to create the tip of the nose and the philtrum. You can add color to give your work a three dimensional feeling.

Step 4

The nose of your cartoon characters can be really simple (1), out of proportion (5) (2) or realistic (4). I usually like to draw a simple nose because I think it works better. A big nose (6) will give more personality to your character but it can become annoying to look at with time.
