Nose study

A portrait drawing…well, more like “study” of noses. References photos from Lee Hammond’s “How To Draw Real People” book series. I highly recommend using her books as “studies” if you ever have the inspiration to draw realistic people, nature, still-life and etc. Her step-by-step instructions are easy to follow and can give you pointers on how to realistically draw just about anything.
