Cartilages of the Nose

When you're drawing people, it helps to know what is going on under the skin. You don't need to remember the latin names, just so long as you remember roughly what goes where - what it looks like.

The shape of the nose varies enormously from person to person, because of their bone and cartilage structure, as well as the musculature of their face and the amount of fat under their skin. Its important to observe each individual carefully and study the shape of their nose and its position in relation to their other features.
