I'm trying to sketch a nose using this reference and I'm having a bit of a hard time since my drawing is not front forward.

Do you have anything about how the bridge of the nose is created on an angle?

Use the simple form reference from "Shading the bridge" to draw the "block" in any angle you wish and then just reference the rest of the anatomy.

Remember that the key to angles in anything is simple form. If you can't make something out of a single cube or cylinder, pile them together!

What program did you use for this? I can't seem to find a good, free program. If you know of any free ones, please let me know. Online would be preferable, but if not I am currently running a mac. Thanks in advance!
