Nose Sculpture Exercise by Alexander Cherkov, from the book Introduction to the World of Art "Sculpture, painting, drawing and more"

Before starting atHead sculpting, It is advisable to perform a number of exercises in sculpting major interior parts with Ceramic clay או plasticine. This is an opportunity to get to know and understand the structure of the different parts of the face: eye, mouth, nose and ear, this will be very easy later when you sculpt a life-size head.

People have different noses. Noses of children, women and men, noses big and small, eagle noses and nasty noses, with or without defects. And yet, all people have a nose built according to one plan: the bridge of the nose, the tip of the nose and the wings of the nostrils. I suggest sculpting even though it has no special personal characteristics.

Make a flat rectangle measuring 6x10 cm from ceramic or plasticine.

Add a horizontal bulge across the top of the top for the eyebrow ridge, about 1/5 of the rectangle.
