Everything Concerning Noses

This was made in response to a question from ~Lilac-the-fox99 concerning how I draw/paint noses and lips. I had originally intended to put the two together but found that I had enough material to split it into two tutorials. So here be the nose tutorial. If you see any typos/mistakes, point them out. As much as I'm fairly adept with my English, I miss stuff, especially in the stuff I've written.
While you're at it, if you liked this tutorial, why not check out the group I head, dedicated to teaching and tutorials? Head over to #MAA-DynastyCafe and take a look!

I do not claim to be an amazing/perfect artist, nor do I claim that this tutorial is perfect or 100% anatomically correct. I also advise you to not use this tutorial exclusively. Look elsewhere for further reference, study real people and photos for yourself, and practice and hone your skills.

If you enjoyed my tutorials or any of my art, please consider donating $1 through paypal to go towards my college tuition. I need about $3000 still to attend college and even a dollar would make my day a thousand times over. If you've got it to spare, please send it to:
Thank you! (no, you don't have to do this, but it would be really nice if you did)

EDIT: As much as I wish I could, I can't personally thank every single person who favorites this, it's getting far too difficult and I just can't keep up with it anymore, especially with the spam filter.
THANK YOU FOR THE :+fav:! :tighthug:

EDIT EDIT: Did the much needed anatomy face lift to the painted nose example. Many thanks to *SKTAF who pointed these errors out months a little while ago, and I never got around to fixing. It's still not quite perfect, and I'll probably edit it again eventually.

I have to say that whether or not you think you're the greatest artist, you're amazing at collecting information and presenting it in a way that makes sense. Thank you so much for this tutorial!!!!!
Now I just need reference images or to start attack-drawing people again...
