This is a tutorial on how to paint a nose with Krita, Photoshop or any other digital painting tool. As in my other tutorials for digital painting I will also use very simple brushes: One for the lines, a pencil 2B and for the color I use an airbrush.
First of all I add a gray background and a new layer for the lines of the nose:
I keep the lines thin and after painting them I turn the opacity of the layer to about 50%.
Then I add a new layer under the lines layer and choose the airbrush tool to draw some base color in.
In the last part I add a layer over the lines and paint the shadows and the highlights in by using again the airbrush with an opacity of 60 – 80%.
In the end you can choose white color and up the opacity to add more highlights on the top of the nose. That’s it! And again: Don’t give up if it’s not as you like in the first or the second try. Keep on painting and your skills will increase.
In the next tutorial we will draw a monster or golem hand / claw together, that will be fun:-)
