Hi. My name's Erik. I'm an artist. And I'm going to show you how to draw a nose, eyes and mouth with shading. So, let's just start out by drawing a large face here. OK. About half way down, you're going to want to do the eyes, my two eyes. And let's do a nose below that. And a nostril around, a nostril around. Bring this up in to a brow, a brow. And let's do the mouth here. And we can fill in the lips there and underneath. OK. Now, let's add the iris and pupil, iris and pupil and tear duct there and there. Let's add the lid and the bottom, add the lid, bottom. And let's start shading this. I want my lights source to come down from this way, so it's going to be shadow underneath. So, start darkening in areas that get less light. There, get underneath the nose. There we go, to the nostril and bring this up and shade that in. And you can actually do a little bit of shading under the ridge of the brow. Fill in these eyelashes, or these eyebrows here. OK. Now, let's do some of this mouth here. Shade in the bottom there, the bottom portion here. And then you can shade in underneath a bit. The top portion here, you can even shade a little bit of, a little bit of the contour of the eyeball. OK. And that is how you draw a nose, eyes and mouth with shading.
