    In this lesson, instructor Iliya Mirochnik will teach you how to draw the nose using a plaster cast. You will learn to construct the nose, from its big simple shapes to the small delicate details. Iliya will demonstrate how he uses shading to represent the anatomical structure of the nose and describe the form of the nostril.

    This lesson belongs to the course Cast Drawing: The Russian Approach. In this 8-week course, you will follow Iliya Mirochnik as he walks you through the centuries-old tradition of plaster cast drawing. You will learn to analyze the anatomy of the face and head. Iliya will demonstrate how he methodically builds up tones and utilizes hatching as a glaze to unify his drawings. This course provides you with many intuitive assignments, reference images, and 3D models of historical plaster casts that maximize your learning potential. After completing the course, you will gain an understanding of form and proportion, as well as develop a sensitivity to rendering light and shadow.

    Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.
