Let's Paint... Noses! by ashesto Let's Paint... Noses! by ashesto
What? Another tutorial within, like, 5 minutes? It must be Christmas! (Actually, you're wrong; tomorrow is July 25, which is about as far from Christmas as you can get.)

So this is a tutorial on how to paint a nose. I know there's a million of these. Now there's a million and one. The nose shown here would probably take me no more than 20-30 minutes, but I'm familiar with the painting style, so if you're not, it will probably take longer.

BLENDING TIPS
I should probably do a separate tutorial on blending, but basically the process of blending (as I do it, anyways) is as follows:
1. You have 2 colors you need to blend together
2. Blend them together by painting in between them with in-between hues (I do this by eyedropping in-between colors)
3. Continue to do so until you have achieved your desired level of blending
